I was wondering if any one else uses Bummis Cotton Wrap covers. those are the only covers i have used and i really like them but i never hear/read anyone talking about them and was wondering if anyone else out there uses them.

I had one when DS was a newborn. But it really wicked rather quickly on us so I didn't use it all that much. It is sitting patiently in a box waiting for my next little guy to be born. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Do you like them?

I have a small and a medium one. I had a few problems with wicking (wetness getting on the cotton outer of the diaper) with the small one so didn't use it too much. I got the medium one to use as a swim diaper. It worked fine for that. I find the rise to be too low to fit over some of dds diapers, she has a pretty long rise though. It works with a very trim fitting diaper in it, like a trifolded infant CPF, or just a Joey Bunz. But I make sure I check her frequently and change her as soon as she wets. The Bummis SWW have a little longer rise, so they fit dd better.

One of my first covers for my 1st dd was one...I didn't care for it very much, it wicked quite a bit. I ended up selling it & getting the PUL ones instead, then eventually sold those in lieu of getting wool & fleece. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Are you using the pull up kind? If so, you might try Dappi pull on pants. They are cheap, effective, but plain. (No cute prints)

is the cotton wrap the one with the prints? like the cow? i have one of those and i love it for folding in thirds. much much trimmer than the sww. we can actually wear "regular" clothes when we use it. sure, it probably does wick more to the cotton print but i knew that it would and don't use it at night so its fine. i actually really like the lightweight covers for that reason. its easy to tell when its time for a change yet you don't have to change all their clothes since those dont get wet really. next best thing to coverless.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have one (the cow) but I use it on DD as a swim dipe. I've never used it as an actual cover.

Are all bummi prints cotton? If so, then I have 2. I had no idea that they were different though, someone gave them to me.<br><br>
They do wick more than the regular Bummis.

The bummis sww have some prints and there is no cotton on them. It's all poly. I like them better b/c they fit over almost diaper, rarely leak, and fit both my girls who are shaped very differently.

You can get the Bummis SWWs in frog or star baby print and they do not wick. Bumkins also makes print covers. I really like Bumpy covers too. They have the cotton outer, but they do not wick at all.

I have a couple of these in the polar bear print that we used mainly as swim dipes in the summer. Now they're too small, but I'll probably get some more for swim dipes for next season. I got them from <a href="http://www.greenmountaindiapers.com" target="_blank">www.greenmountaindiapers.com</a>.

i hadone whendswasa about 5 months old and i loved it. it was the ONLY velcro cover i have ever had (and we went through lots before we discovered snaps, ec, and wool :LOL ) that didnt' scratch ds's chubby belly. iwill probably get another one for the new baby for when i want somethign more trim than wool. we never really had aproblem with it leaking (wicking) through the fabric and pul gives my babies rashes, as well as making htem sweaty. So here is atleast oen postive response for htem<br><br><br>
i think if you liket hem you should stick with them and if you dont' you should try something new <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">
