New Products

Our followers have spoken!  Our latest poll asked which new products you would like to see us carry in our store, and Thirsties was our winner.  You can expect Thirsties to be appearing on our site within the next few months.  Rockin' Green was a close second, so this line of diaper detergents will be the next new product we add.  I anticipate having full stock of products from both companies, as well as increasing our in-stock supply of products from our current wholesalers by late spring or early summer.  Stay tuned for updates as we continue to grow as a business!

Great Cloth Diaper Hunt: Are you Ready?

We are proud to be a sponsor of the November 2011 Great Cloth Diaper Hunt! Have you hunted before? If not, here's how it works:

The Great Cloth Diaper Hunt (GCDH) is a huge internet scavenger hunt running from November 1-30, 2010. During the month, you will get the chance to visit many great websites (many WAHM sites as well as others). You'll follow clues to find a hidden diaper icon within each site. By doing so, you will qualify for 71 random prize drawings, including One Ultimate Grand Prize worth over $500 and a Daily Prize for each day of hunting!

The idea behind the hunt is to introduce consumers to some of the great WAHM businesses that are out in cyberspace, and also to many new products!

Think the hunt is too time-consuming? You are NOT required to find all the icons...just work at your own pace and find as few or as many as you like. Just be sure you register for the hunt so you can be qualified for all the great prizes! You can register by clicking on this link:

Also, Diaper Decisions has a facebook page. You can receive updates about registration and sponsorship by becoming a fan of their page. They will also be giving out prizes through the facebook page, as well as running chats with some of the sponsors during the hunt.

When you register for the hunt or become a fan on facebook, be sure to say Bum Covered Diapers sent you!

Diaper Trials, Fitteds, and Flushable Liners!

We've gotten shipments in from Planet Wise and from AppleCheeks within the last few days. One new item of note is Flushable Liners! If you (or anyone you know) love the idea of using cloth diapers but don't want to deal with the poop, these flushable liners are just the solution for you! You lay these liners inside your reusable diaper, then when the baby poops just dump the liner and poop straight into the toilet and flush! No mess required! Each package comes with 100 liners, and another thing to note is that the liners can be washed and hung to dry if they are not soiled.
We added two additional items today as well: our diaper trial package and custom fitted flannel diapers.

Diaper Trial Package:
Here's how the trial works: You pay the rental fee + deposit, and then get to try the diapers and accessories risk-free for 3 weeks. After your trial period is done you can either return the diapers to us and be refunded your deposit, or keep the diapers and receive a $15 discount on them! (Please wash all diapers before returning them. Diapers must be returned clean and dry for a full refund on your deposit.)
Shipping to you is included in the cost of the trial, but return shipping fees are your responsibility.

Our Cloth Diaper Trial Package includes the following:

--5 diapers (a variety of the diapers we sell, such as One Size, Pocket, AIO, and Envelope diapers by bumGenius, Knickernappies, and AppleCheeks)
--5 inserts
--a medium Planet Wise wet bag
--samples of detergent, wipes solutions, rash cream or wipes
--information guide to cloth diapering

You can find them here:

Custom Fitted Flannel Diapers ($7.00-$10.00 depending on soaker type)
These fitted diapers are made with four layers of flannel and a heavy terrycloth or microfiber soaker pad sewn inside. We can create a custom diaper especially for your little one. You choose the color and the soaker material! (The colors and designs pictured give you an idea of the fabric we have, but we can get almost any color or design you request...your choices are in no way limited to what you see here!)

These diapers will require a waterproof cover. Plastic pants will do, or PUL covers like Thirsties, or Bummis Wraps will work fine. We do not have covers available at this time but hope to carry Thirsties covers in the very near future!

Because we are using new patterns to sew these diapers, we're offering them at a LOW price. In return, we hope that you would give us your feedback on the style, fit, absorbency, etc.

Please allow at least 2 weeks for us to sew and ship your custom diaper orders. Larger orders may take longer than 2 weeks to complete.

You can find them here:

Diaper Trial Package

Starting October 25th, we'll be offering a new product at Bum Covered Diapers! As a new mommy, I was hesitant to spend a fortune on cloth diapers without knowing how I would like them. I know a lot of other new mom's have similar hesitations, so hopefully this new package will be a way for you to try cloth diapers and discover the kinds you prefer without all the financial risk.
Here's how it will work:

For a small $15 rental fee (+ refundable deposit of $120), you get to try out 5 new diapers (of every style we have), plus a wet bag, wipes, and wipes solution for 21 days. You get to use them, wash them, re-use them, and hopefully fall in love with them over this 3-week period! If you don't like them, you just return them after your trial and get a full refund (via Paypal) of your deposit. If you do like them, we'll refund your rental fee and you keep the diapers at a discount!

Also, from Oct 25th through Nov 20th, your rental fee will be half price...only $7.99.

If you have questions, feel free to comment here or email me:
