Softbums NEW OMNI Diaper Review & Giveaway!



I’m feeling very reporter-ish right now. Currently, I’m camping at Garner State Park in south Texas but I *have* to report something to you!

Any typos must be ignored because I am writing this on the phone.

There’s a huge launch going in today over at Softbums cloth diapers. Already I’m a huge fan of Softbums because of their amazing toggle elastic adjuster in the legs.

The mom behind the business is about as sweet and dedicated as they come.

I’ll get to the point since one of my normal posts would take me 5 years to type on this.


The most customized fit you’ll get with a one-sized diaper.

The Velcro gives you a snug waist fit but is easily undone by toddlers.


After one prep (which is not fully prepped!) I began using the system. I first used the bamboo pod. I left ut in Sterling for 3 hours. The pod was wet but the shell dry.

I then got him ready for bed by adding the fleece-topped microfiber pod with a doubler (newborn) pod.

After 14 hours we had no leaks, Sterling was dry and the shell wasn’t soaked.


Getting the correct fit with the toggle isn’t difficult but it does take some time. Once you get it where you want it though you won’t have to mess with it until baby requires it.

The toggle can be accessed through the front small slit and through the wide pocket at the back.

Changing out the pods is easy. Just unsnap and snap in a new one. If the shell gets damp you can lay it out to dry for next change.


- Stuff it! Snap it! Cover it!
– The first Muti-Purpose Pocket Ever!  It’s a Pocket Diaper AND an All-In-2
AND a Cover!
– Huge pocket opening is easy to stuff
Larger size means it fits even BIGGER toddlers up to 40 lbs, yet still
fits a tiny Newborn with Slide²Size

– Compatible with the same Pods as the Echo, as well as almost any other
diaper insert!
– Choice of DryTouch or Organic
– Use as an all-in-2 for the most economical diapering system available!
– Use as a pocket for a super absorbent and bulletproof diaper so easy your
daycare can use it!
– Use as a cover over flats, prefolds or nearly anything else you already
have for a worry-free night!

Softbums was versatile before now you have yet another option. I’ve always recommended Softbums and I continue to stand behind that!

    I am new into cloth diapering and love your website to do background research. Thank you! I went to Softbums website to check out the OMNI and it looked like there was only one color available and said “was not for sale” or something like that. So are they just promoting the diaper right now and it will be in production later? Thanks for any help!

    Aloha Autumn!

    My name is Kristi. I just wanted to say that I LOVE your reviews. Because of you I purchased Softbums several months ago for my son and I’m so in LOVE with this diaper! This diaper is so easy to use. It’s great for baby, and great for the enviroment!! I love that I don’t have to stuff it and I can use the shell multiple times! I’m looking forward to trying the new OMNI!!

    4 – I recently bought a SoftBums Echo and love the DryTouch Pods and that you get 3 with each shell. They are easier to carry around when we are out and about since I don’t need to change the shell after a wet diaper – just the pod. The Nuclear Pumpkin is a great color, too!
