i like them for around the house. cute prints. no leaks on my guy.<br><br>
the flannel is not the most absorbent inner--it ends up feeling rather wet.<br><br>
i use the for daytime around the house or at grandma's. not for going out and about or overnight.<br><br>
at wholesale prices i would definately get some. if you don't like them you can sell them for at least what you have in them...probably more.

I love my Bumkins AIO. They are great. I have to add a double sometimes, but as far as leaking Ive never had a leak with them yet. They go on so easy. I wish I had tons more.<br><br>
They are so much better than Kushies AIO. Id get some if I were you.

I had the opposite experience and thought my Kushies AIO's were more absorbant than my Bumkins. I think it's one of those YMMV (your miles may vary) things.

I love Bumkins and would have an entire stash of them if I could. I usually put a thin doubler in them if I'm using them out and about.

I've got a big stack of Bumkins and they are my absolute favorite dipe! Good for skinny or fat thighs (i've used them on both my kids) and they're absorbant enough for even two good pees. I don't nap him in it or anything though, b/c it does wick through after the flannel is soaked. They folder aplix is fantastic, sometimes even TOO sticky when you're in a diapering hurry, and it lasts forever. I've got a 19 lb baby and he'll wear them well past their weight range I'm sure, as he has lots of waist room left. I also have some Kushies AIOs, and I far prefer the Bumkins. So much trimmer than the Kushies, and the fit around the waist is far superior. Like one of the pp's said, the Kushies might be a tad more absorbant, but you can't easily lay a doubler in a Kushies w/out having it sticking out in the stride (IMO, anyway).<br><br>
LOVE my Bumkins!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I love Bumkins! What a great deal for you! They arent the most absorbent dipe out there, but just pick up some fleece topped doublers somewhere, and they'll be great!

Hmm i guess i'm the opposite in all ways. i've tried kushies & bumkins & neither were very good on my 2. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> They are cute prints on the bumkins but my 2 leaked horribly. Even with an extra doubler. I guess they just never fit my 2 kids good.<br><br>
But great deal though to get them wholesale... its atleast worth it to try them out i would think.. If you tried them & decided you did not like them you could sell them on ebay. They seem to move pretty good their.

We had some and liked them fine w/ a doubler. They are nice and trim under jeans <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

They are pretty good diapers. I'm not a big fan of the material they use inside because it doesn't seem like the softest material to have against a wet bum. We usually add a JB fleece-topped insert and they work well. Even as a going-out diaper. I agree that they are nice and trim under jeans.

I like Bumkins AIOs too! I add a preemie prefold as a doubler and they work great. Fabulous for outings and trips to the grandparents house<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I like Bumkins and Kushies are okay. I say that there is no better diaper bag diaper than a Bumkins! (well maybe there is, but they are a really great diaper to stick in the diaper bag!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">

Ooh I love <b>both</b> Kushies and Bumkins AIOs! Kushies is all we use for nighttime. He starts off with a Bumkins or FB, then once we go to bed (family bed) we change him into a Kushies, and that's usually good until DS and I wake up for the day. You just have to cinch it up! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Anyway, if I were you I'd get both.<br><br>
And if you hate them, PM me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> Kushies and Bumkins at wholesale? Where can I get a friend like that?!!? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
