Review & Giveaway - The Green Bumkin!

The Green Bumkin is an awesome, proudly Canadian cloth-diaper business run by a friendly, fabulous mama named Amy!


She was an amazing sponsor for the Canada Day Extravaganza! Unfortunately, the post was slow because of the 2 holidays on either side of the border, and I didn't get the review diaper in time to do a complete write up for you guys! So, without further ado, a few days late, we are going to take a look at this awesome diaper!!
Here is a picture of the front of the woodsy AIO! And believe me, it's an AIO like no other!


She sent a chocolate brown diaper with adorable woodland critter tabs in matching fabric--complete with birch trees and everything! This diaper screams Canada--land of many beautiful things (including Green Bumkin diapers!!) I fell in love instantly. Amy and I you see, share a love of moose! So, she did some special searching to find a fun moose-y sorta themed fabric for me! Well done Amy!


Amy shipped the package super quickly (it wasn't her fault the post on BOTH sides of the border was slow!) and she took the time to do the extra step of vacuum-sealing the diaper! It was in perfect condition when I opened the fluffy mail!

Here is the bum-view.

And, a tag shot!


The outer is PUL. The diaper has a sewn-in double insert. This all-in-one is like no other, like I said before, but did you know it has 5 LAYERS of Oeko-tex organic certified heavy bamboo/organic cotton fleece WITH a hidden Zorb layer? WOW!!! I love the fit on my 25 lb+ toddler--it's wonderful--it's very trim but not at all restricting. This diaper is the only one I've ever found with this type of sewn in system, and I think it is the reason it is so trim. I'm really fond of it. Another awesome fact? Only NATURAL fibers ever come in contact with babies skin, so mama can get those much-needed Zzzz's without worry!

So here is the inside...
...but lets take a closer look!

Here is the first sewn-in insert, folded out.

And this, is BOTH inserts (sewn-in) folded out!

I really love this system. It gives you AWESOME absorption but still has a trim fit. I was also reallly impressed that it dried fast. I hung it out with my regular pockets, AIO's and inserts, and it was dry and ready to come inside at the same time as the others! So, this is quite the dipe!

A snapping rise allows you to adjust the size of the diaper to grow with your baby! But, one size does fit most between about 12-35 lbs!

Here is a look a the diaper on our handy puppy model and next to a BG Artist Series.

We were able to use this diaper for long naps and at nighttime with one extra bamboo insert, just to be safe since I have a heavy wetter (and I've only been using wool successfully at night). The diaper as-is would be GREAT for kids up to a year or more I'd say, night or day. I ALWAYS overstuff at night as a precaution! This Green Bumkin diaper was really excellent at keeping the moisture away from our little guy -- and no leaks!

So, since we missed out on this great diaper during the Canada Day Extravaganza, let's hold a little contest to help one of you readers find a spot in your stash for a Green Bumkin! If you just simply cannot wait or know that this diaper is for you, BUY one!

THIS CONTEST IS OVER.

  11. I like the ladybugs in the fitted section and the butterflies and swirls in the printed PUL section! Too many decisions : ) I guess I'd go with the swirls because they are just too cute and whimsical.
