Bummas Cloth Wipes / Review and Giveaway

Picture

About the company: 

Bummas is the home to the Eco-Friendly Cloth Baby Wipe.  

On a mission to 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. The creation of Bummas came about when this momma had her first baby boy. Overwhelmed with 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.”
(Sound familiar?? lol)

     and perplexed over the one thing that was never mentioned .. How to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Because, a 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.
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.  







Recommended Regimen:

Grab a Bummas cloth wipe before opening the diaper. Sneak “attacks” are frequent and will happen the second you open the diaper!  Place the Bummas wipe over the privates while tending to the other parts. 
One Bummas wipe will soak up an entire mess. Clean up baby with a regular wipe or wet a Bummas wipe 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. 



Here are some professional advice on preventing Diaper Rash.





Pros: 
As a mom I can attest to the NEED for quick convenient clean up solutions, now, add Eco-Friendly to the mix, and I'm sold.  They are small enough to be portable without being bulky, and absorbent enough to do an efficient job.  I wish I had had these when the gremlins were younger, but thanks to Bummas I hope to NEVER buy wet wipes again.  What I did was make my own solution for if I need a moist wipe.. 
  • Combining: 
  • 2 T. baby oil
    2 T. baby bath or shampoo
    2 cups boiled water, then cooled 
I just placed the ingredients in a  squirt bottle and keep in my back pack along with the Bummas Cloth Wipes, with TWO toddlers, some messes just REQUIRE a little help..  I can honestly tell you as a mom of twins buying double the wipes, double the ointments, double the diapers, that if you can implement a cloth system (saving you on diapers and / or wipes and inevitably help prevent diaper rash which saves on ointments and talc) you would not only be ding a service to your child and the environment, but also to your wallet. 


 
Cons:


I received these a while ago, but wanted to take my time on this review, because honestly I like to be thorough.  I have been using them for a few weeks, and have wet, washed, bleached, and put them through HELL.  The ONLY thing I found was a small fray on the corner of ONE. Personally, I wouldn't even count that as a flaw considering what I've put those little suckers through.  They honestly withstood the Twinsane Mommas test. 


I'm working on getting my hands on ANOTHER set.
Of wipes, NOT twins.....

  15. I follow you on GFC and could totally benefit from Bummas because one of my girls has a sensitive bum and sometimes even sensitive wipes are too harsh. I have tried baby washcloths in the past but Bummas seem much softer and thicker.

  39. I think that we could benefit from theses because it seems that no matter what kind of wipe we use my son hates the feeling of them on his skin. He doesn't mind if I use a regular washcloth {I think that it's the texture of the wipes}...so I am sure he would love to have his own set of wipes just for his diaper changes. Thanks for the chance.

  43. I am using cloth diapers on our newborn and would like more eco friendly wipes too. Also less chemicals on baby's skin is a big plus.
