Closed: Eco -Friendly Bummas Review & Giveaway

Winner:


The Eco-Friendly Cloth Baby Wipe.  

     You can virtually eliminate irritating diaper rash without the use of powders, talcs, and ointments. 
Bummas are small soft, luxurious baby-sized cloths made especially for drying baby bottoms, as well as blocking those surprise squirts. And with a little douse of water, they can also replace wet wipes for clean up of sensitive bums.   They are small enough to conveniently carry on the go and durable enough to wash over and over again and won’t pill shrink or fade. 
     We think you will find Bummas to be an indispensable item in your diaper changing regimen.  








Their Story

Picture









     The creation of Bummas came about when we had our first baby boy. When your first arrives, you are given all kinds of advice:
    
 "Use the wet commercial wipes, don’t use the wet commercial wipes, use gauze; use whatever is handy to block the pee; use another diaper to block the pee; don’t use that, use this; use powder to dry them off, don’t use powder-it contains talc and studies have linked talc to cancer.”
     The one thing that was never mentioned was how to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Our baby’s bum was just way too wet to put a diaper back on--and blowing down there until you’re blue in the face just wasn’t working. Thus Bummas were born. A soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloth to soak up all the wetness.

The Routine

 Grab a Bumma cloth before opening the diaper. Sneak “attacks” are frequent and will happen the second you open the diaper!  Place the Bumma over the privates while tending to the other parts. 




     One Bumma will soak up an entire pee. Clean up baby with a regular wipe or wet a Bumma and clean up sensitive skin.Use another Bumma to thoroughly dry baby off.  Re-diaper.  If the cover Bumma gets soaked rinse it off and throw it in the wash. The payoff- a dry bum, no diaper rash, and no surprise squirts.  Save money on diapers, and save by not having to buy powder, and ointment.

My Review
I was sent a set of Bummas The Wild Ones to review. I am very impressed with Bummas themselves as well as the idea. I try to use as many Eco-Friendly products in my home as I can and also to promote them on this blog. I had no issues using these on my 11 month old and will be happy to use them on our baby due November 25th. 
I already had mine wet and in our small wipe container in replace of disposable wipes. After use, I just rinsed if a sink was available and either way, I popped in a baggy to wash at home.

The great thing is that they are also soft and you can use them to wipe little ones faces as well. At 11 months, he gets quite messy.
 You will not only be helping the environment, but will save a lot of money too. 
Check out Bummas and choose from their many variety packs.
