Bummas Cloth Wipes Review

by Mama Chocolate on June 11, 2012

Another generous sponsor of the Fluffy Butts Cloth Diaper giveaway hop, Bummas is giving the lucky winner a set of their premium cloth wipes in Mama Chocolate’s fluffy giveaway prize package! Comment on this post for extra entries into that giveaway!

How Bummas got started:

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.

*review by Katelyn F

After these Bummas wipes arrived I had some doubts about them because they didn’t feel very absorbent. However, after one wash I’ve had a lot of fun with them ever since! My babies always have wet bums after a wet diaper. Just wiping leaves them still wet, and that just increases the rashes. My homemade wipes don’t dry very well, and are rather rough, anyway. These are luxuriously soft, and it surprised me how with just gentle pats everything got dry!

This is the Wild set. I must confess, I am an as-bright-as-possible type, so these colors thrilled me!

The Routine:

Grab a Bumma cloth wipe 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.

They are 5×7, which is as big as my hand, so that was nice. When I go to clean a really dirty bum, I like a big wipe. But unlike the throw-away kind, these are thick and don’t let things through! I haven’t had to ward off a sneak attack from my baby boy with these yet (just watch, now that I’ve said that it’ll happen!), but I’m sure these could handle it.

It was hard to start using them for awhile because my daughters liked the ‘soft cloths’ so much that they promptly absconded with them!

Bummas recently won the well-deserved Parent Tested Parent Approved Award!

You can purchase set of 10 wipes for $15.00 each directly from the Bummas website.

They look so soft and I love the colors


Beth R June 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm

I love how soft they are. We have a set and love them. Plus who couldn’t love the bright colors


Bekah Kuczenski June 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm

Wow these wipes must be very absorbent if one wipe can sick up an entire lee accident lol


Stephanie Hungerford June 11, 2012 at 10:37 pm

I love that they are absorbent so that you can use them to avoid little squirters. I also love the bright colors. and that they are a green wipe I have always thought if you are going to cloth diaper why not use cloth wipes


Dandi D June 12, 2012 at 7:33 am

These wipes are so colorful and fun! They’ve been on my wish list for a while.


christina skinner June 12, 2012 at 10:36 am

Great idea! I’m having a boy and am scared of the sneak attacks during diaper changing. I never though to do that.


Toby June 12, 2012 at 12:02 pm

To be recognized by PTPA is an honor! :D


Toby June 12, 2012 at 12:09 pm

Bummas are soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloths that soak up all the wetness before putting on the diaper. They look sooo soft!


Rebekah Keiser June 12, 2012 at 1:47 pm

These look soft and absorbent. I am interested in trying them out.


Rachel N June 12, 2012 at 2:03 pm

I really like all the bright colors they offer.


Danielle June 13, 2012 at 1:10 am

I still haven’t used any cloth wipes….but these I’d like to try.


Rebecca June 13, 2012 at 7:00 am

I’m still looking for wipes to love, these look great. I tried some homemade and tried just using washclothes…


Geri Fink June 13, 2012 at 8:43 am

These are all great ideas. I will have to try them!


Momma Momo June 13, 2012 at 12:26 pm

I love all the bright colors! Beautiful wipes |:)

I’ve been hesitant to switch to cloth wipes but these could definitely change my mind. These look so soft and I’m loving the colours.


Saba @ Less is More (Fun) June 13, 2012 at 8:15 pm

Love the colors!


Hanna Grace June 13, 2012 at 9:46 pm

I have been so afraid to make my own diapering stuff although I am a huge diy fan I am just terrified that the things i need wont actually work if i make my own. Most of the time I cant beat the cost savings of doing it myself but with these I feel it is a perfect blend of saving money and getting something that works well!

I love just how big the wipes are, and the fact that they look very soft. I would love to try these as traditional wipes do not always get all the pooh off my daughter’s bum.


sara D June 14, 2012 at 8:53 am

the colors, size & absorbancy… whats not to love??
I am requesting some for my shower… must have!!


Rachel C. June 14, 2012 at 11:15 am

Love the bright colors and how absorbent they are.


Nikole H. June 14, 2012 at 12:23 pm

I really like how soft they are. I usually wet my wipes to clean with, so the softness comes from the moisture most of the time, but the wipes I use to dry with I like to be fluffy soft :)


Christine M Tubbytelly June 14, 2012 at 12:24 pm

I love using cloth wipes. These would sure add some pizzaz to my stash.

These are great! Cloth wipes are really the best. I won’t use regualar baby wipes because of all the chemicals.


Sarah Jane June 14, 2012 at 3:25 pm

I like the nice vibrant colors.

I love the shape of these wipes. All our current wipes are square and don’t fit into our wipes warmer as well as I would like


Brittany C. June 14, 2012 at 4:41 pm

I wasn’t thinking of doing cloth wipes as well as the cloth diapers, but the more and more reviews I see like this….the more I’m starting to change my mind!


Maria Ivey June 14, 2012 at 6:19 pm

These look so soft and I like the colors too. I think they are too small for cleaning up poopy messes, but would be awesome to use for little messy faces.


Audrey Jensen June 14, 2012 at 7:11 pm

I see so many more uses too, once the diapering phase is over!


Ashley O June 14, 2012 at 7:16 pm

I haven’t ventured into the world of cloth wipes yet, but these seem so easy to use and seem like a great size to get the job done!


Danialle Meyers June 14, 2012 at 8:01 pm

Their little color bundles are cute! I like having a variety. I only have 2 types of cloth wipes atm. I would love to try these out!


Amy R. Smith June 14, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I love that they are super abosrbent (enough to hold one pee!)! I normally use a baby washcloth with my little man to prevent getting sprayed, and to pat dry his bum dry… but they don’t work well and absorbing all of the wetness when he pees during the diaper change! Would love to try these!!


Marion Scharf June 14, 2012 at 9:02 pm

I use cloth wipes regularly and have some that I prefer over others because of their absorbancy or softness but these look like they offer the best of both worlds. I would love to try them!


kristi June 15, 2012 at 7:43 am

This is my first go round cloth diapering and using cloth wipes. I am really excited to try these!


Nicole S June 15, 2012 at 7:47 am

These seem a little small to me, but I like that they’re nice and thick.


DeAnna C. June 15, 2012 at 9:19 am

I love the colors and how soft they are.


Rebecca A June 15, 2012 at 11:08 am

I love the color of these wipes!

These wipes sound great! I love the Calm Ones set.


heather c. June 15, 2012 at 6:29 pm

I currently have a combination of GroVia, BabyKicks, and PlanetWise wipes, but these look like something I’d like to try!


Amanda Blanco June 15, 2012 at 8:04 pm

I don’t have any reusable wipes yet and would love to try these out! They sound perfect!


Alison Miles June 15, 2012 at 8:53 pm

I make my own wipes, but I would love to try some different ones!


hayley June 15, 2012 at 8:56 pm

LOVE the colors and seem like a good size
