bumGenius Freetime Cloth Diaper review by Doable Diapers

The Doable Details: bumGenius Freetime Diaper {review}

Nolan in bumgenius Freetime diaperI don’t really like to change things up very often. When I find something that works, I just stick with it. FuzziBunz and Rumparooz have worked good for us. I was hesitant about the bumGenius Freetime diaper when it was first released.
One of my objections to the Freetime is that it is an AIO {all-in-one} diaper. I don’t have a dryer, and it usually takes a long time for AIO’s to hang dry. I prefer my pockets and prefolds for this reason. Additionally, with an AIO if one part of the diaper wears out, you probably have to junk the whole diaper. Whereas with a pocket diaper, if the cover delaminates, you can still use the insert in a different pocked. Or if the insert wears out, just buy a new one and continue to use the pocket.

But the Freetime diapers were all the rage, I decided to give them a spin. Besides…I really wanted to get my hands on one in a Sassy color!
Fast forward 3-4 months, and this is my favorite diaper. I’m not kidding! Now, I don’t think it would matter as much to me if I were diapering a girl. But this diaper is hands down, the best thing I have found for diapering a boy!

How to fold inserts jpg
The Freetime is not a traditional AIO with several absorbent layers sewn into the core. There are two inserts, each attached at one end of the diaper. The inserts are then “free-flowing” and can be folded or doubled however you want them. Two sewn seams make it easy to fold and size the inserts. So…you can double or triple the absorbency right in the front where your little boy needs it fastest, or simply double the layers in the bottom for a girl.

Each insert is microfiber topped with stay-dry fleece, making this a great AIO diaper because it locks the wetness away from baby’s bum.

I expected the stitching at the inserts to pull away, rip, or tear, as has happened to me with other AIO/attached insert diapers. This has not been the case, and we use these diapers A LOT! It is hands down the first diaper I reach for to put in the diaper bag. It is incredibly absorbent and if I get stuck while out and about and can’t change the diaper, I don’t have to worry about leaks. It is easy to put on because it is AIO. It’s also easy to clean when I get home. I don’t have to stick my hand into a stale pocket diaper that’s been in the wet bag for 4-6 hours and remove the insert. Just dump the contents in the diaper pail and I’m done.

My one complaint is that it’s a bit tricky to use a diaper sprayer on this diaper because of how the inserts are sewn to the diaper. I found this method on the Cotton Babies blog to be very helpful. As in, aha! Why didn’t I think of that? kind of helpful. But…I still don’t like this particular diaper if Nolan poops.
I prefer snap closures, and I have always liked the stretchy butterfly tabs on bumGenius diapers. The Freetime is no exception – the snaps and closures provide a great fit every time. And because it’s one size, it will grow with my baby and then be used with the next {if there is one}.
So go ahead…try the Freetime diaper. I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Horror at my daughter's kindie - part 1 : The Roslan Incident

I'm extremely disappointed by the experience i went thru today with the Genius Aulad Kota Damansara transport service provider. I have the impression that they are the best all this while & boy i was wrong. I was shocked that the complaint of level of service they've provided me, I'm being dismissed as disrespectful & was told that the are much happier for not having me as a customer. MasyaAllah. Makes me wonder who is the customer here. No word of apology from them & they actually threatened my daughters nursery teacher. Oh dear, what have i got myself into.
            Thankfully, GA Center Manager apologize of what had happened. I'd like her to be aware of what kind of service that Encik Roslan has given me when he is under stress.

Let's see what i went thru today, shall we?
