Well? I don't know if they are worth purchasing, and I'd hate to buy them without some positive reviews!

The print looks cute, but I haven't seen them for sale yet either. The Bummis web site says they went on sale Nov. 30.

I was just wondering this--has anyone seen them available yet? My LO has outgrown his small covers, and I really want to try the Super Brite in medium...

I have one coming in the mail from Diaper Junction. I'm curious how they will fit with the gussets (regular BSIWW never worked well because of the gape in the legs).

Hi there,
I have had a chance to try them. My dtr is going to be one in 3 days and she is really tiny with tiny thighs. So the SB is great for her legs, no more gaps! The material is thinner than the SWW as there is no poly knit laminated to the inside of the cover. So it's a bit trimmer. I use it with fitteds (mostly bamboozles and AMP hemps) and snappied on hemp flats so none of the inside touches her skin. I think it would feel nicer for her to have a SWW on if the inside of the cover touched her - perhaps if you trifolded a prefold in there... I also think that if you are trifolding a prefold, the poly knit on the inside of a SWW would hold it in place a little better....
I find that the leg casings seem softer but I think this is just a function of them being more flexible as the material is thinner.
I think it would also work great for escaped poop (esp nb poop) as you could wash it down on the inside really easily.
And the best thing is that they come in PINK - so girly and nice for a change. I give Bummis two thumbs up for this design. Oh and the other nice thing that is a change from the SWW is that the NB size has a notch for your baby's umbilical stump.
Hope that helps.
Karen

Thank you! I just purchased one. I wanted to get two, but I had to reign myself in until I tried them.

MAN. I was REALLY hoping that they had the same thickness of the BSWW. So basically, these are exactly like thirsties.

I just ordered one in green. Shipping was only 75 cents!

I really wanted a blue one, but I think I will wait to check out the fit of the green one first.

We use BSWW and do not have any problem with gaping leg holes, but my boy has thunder thighs. I'm a little anxious that these might be too tight on the thigh area which is usually our problem here.

I bought one to try and we like it. DS has worn it a couple of times, nothing exciting but at least there are new prints and colors which is always fun. I pretty much like whatever covers bummis makes, they are all that we have now. We use mostly BSWW but have a couple of the snap kind and now the super brite. These remind me of kushies or some other cover which is thin in material but holds stuff in well with the gussetts. I'm sold, but I am a big bummis fan anyway

I got one. It is exactly like a Thirsties to me. I will like it for the little stage, but still love SWWs for bigger babies. I just like how much thicker they are.

I am new to CDing but I have used the SB, SWW, and a Prowrap classic and I have to say for my tiny NB I grab the Prowrap every time. My girl has tiny legs and I can't get the SB tight enough around the legs to keep the poo in, it does fit better than the SWW but still not the best. FWIW, I'm using the covers with jellyrolled snappied prefolds. I'm actually considering selling the Bummis covers and getting more Prowraps, I really wanted to like the SB because they are cute but they just don't work for us.

LOVE the Superbrites. My DD just outgrew NB Proraps at 12lbs, so shes pretty tall and thin. The Bummis Super Whisper Wraps don't fit yet because they don't have a gusset. The Superbrite is wonderful for thin legs.

Funny that about the Proraps...i loved the NB ones, and then bought smalls when DS outgrew the NB ones. However, the fit on the smalls totally was different and the diaper was always sticking out...so now we use a mix of covers, no more Proraps...

Re topic--we got a super brite in yellow...it is thinner than the BSWW, but I like the gussets so far.

We have a M yellow SB and I love it! It is so trim and sooooo cute and girly. The gussets I can take or leave. I have an oooold Bummi Polar that has them too; they just get poopy ime. Whatev. But this cover is great for under tighter fitting pants, b/c it is so thin and trim. It makes me think of a better fitting Bumkins. (never had a thirsties)
BTW I also llove Proraps, mostly because they are really cheap and you can't hurt them. No matter what!
