Bummis Covers - A Well-Loved Favorite!
Bummis cloth diaper covers have been a long-standing favorite among parents who cloth diaper their children. The two styles of covers reviewed here, the Super Whisper Wrap and the Super Snap, are very similar in construction. Both covers consist of a waterproof polyester urethane laminate (PUL) layer sandwiched between two layers of soft knit polyester. Elastic around the legs and back of the covers ensure a snug, but not too-tight, fit. The Super Whisper Wrap has a sturdy, adjustable Velcro-like Aplix closure with laundry tabs so the covers don't get snagged together during laundering. The Super Snap has snap closures, which some parents prefer over the Aplix.
The Super Whisper Wrap and Super Snap covers are each available in sizes ranging from newborn (7-10 lbs) to extra-large (40+ lbs). The covers are cut generously to properly fit over prefold, contour, or fitted cloth diapers. Their shape helps hold prefold diapers close to your baby, so that pinning or otherwise securing a prefold diaper is usually unnecessary. Just fold the prefold diaper, lay in the cover, and secure to your baby.
Bummis covers are easy to care for. They can be washed and dried along with your cloth diapers at normal temperatures. According to the Bummis website, the fabric "can withstand even the rigors of industrial washing and drying." Avoid using fabric softener, chlorine bleach, or other whitening agents when laundering the covers.
