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.

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