here with Day 17 of Kickin' It Off With Cloth!
Rump Arounds is a small Canadian company that is based out of the home of it's owners. They are committed to the environment and strive to make affordable, good quality diapers so more families can join them in protecting the environment.
I received this adorable red EcoRumps for review. Let me start by saying, I LOVE the color! It's so bold and vibrant. The contrasting snaps are a great touch!
Rump Arounds EcoRumps are a one-size pocket diaper with an outside made of super soft waterproof TPU. There are four rise settings and two rows of waist snaps (with 10 snaps in each row). The snaps come in alternating colors (black and white) so those who are new to cloth diapering will find it easier to match up their snaps. Just a word to the wise - when snapping black to white it can be a little tricky to unsnap them and you might need to use your fingernail to get it unsnapped. This will loosen up over time though. Each tab has 4 snaps on it to prevent the dreaded wing droop. There are also crossover snaps to ensure a great fit for small babies. EcoRumps have a great snap wrap feature so you can wrap up your dirty diapers just like a disposable - this is especially handy when you're out and about.
EcoRumps are designed to fit babies from 6.5 to 40 pounds. You can see how small it gets in the photos below. My son was just under 7 pounds at birth and I think it's very likely that this diaper would have fit him right away.
The inside of the EcoRumps is made of soft bamboo fleece with my favorite feature of all - double gussets! Double gussets are amazing for containing messes! The insert included with the EcoRumps is a 100% bamboo 3 layer insert. In fact, just recently Rump Arounds has decided that every insert for their diapers will be made of 100% bamboo from now on!
Now, onto the fit of the EcoRumps. I LOVE the fit I was able to get on my little guy! He is currently 6.5 months old and about 19 pounds. He's on the small rise setting (out of XS, small, medium, and large) and has plenty of room for growth. I can see how these diapers would fit a larger toddler up to 40 pounds.
This diaper is amazingly trim, super absorbent, and has gentle elastic. And, at only $15 right now, EcoRumps are an absolute steal! For 100% bamboo that is an amazing price. Overall, I'm really impressed with this diaper and would love to have a few more EcoRumps in my stash!
Since this diaper is made of bamboo you'll need to wash and dry a minimum of 5 times before it's really ready to wear. It won't reach it's state of maximum absorbency until about 10-12 washes. (Need help learning to prep your diapers - read more about that HERE).
