As you probably know, bumGenius is one of the heavyweights in the cloth diaper world. The 4.0 is a one size pocket diaper with stretchy tabs. The stretchy tabs are great for babies (like mine) who are kind of in between snap settings.
The 4.0 comes with a microfiber insert and a microfiber doubler. The insert has a snap so that you can fold it down to the size you need and there is a generous pocket opening for easy stuffing.
The bumGenius 4.0 has a generous fit. K is a little over 21 pounds and he is on the medium setting and just moved to the second waist snap setting. There isn't any added bulk in the crotch area which makes it easy to fit under most pants and jeans.
The fit on the legs is snug but not tight, so no nasties can sneak out of the diaper while allowing free movement and no red marks on the legs.
And the fit in the butt is trim without any fabric bunching.
Overall, this is a great diaper. I only have one of them in my stash, but that isn't because I don't like them. Honestly, it's only because they don't have very many colors/prints that I like. Their colors are pretty muted and blah and their brights are a pretty generic blue, green and pink. They did just come out with two new, bolder colors and two new prints will be out in December that look promising.
What I like:
- Stretchy tabs
- Trim fit
- No leaks
- Easy to stuff
- Adjustable insert
What I don't like:
- Color/print choices
- The feel of the microfiber insert is "prickly" (I don't know how else to describe it)
This diaper retails for $17.95 USD so it's reasonably priced for a very good diaper. ♫♫♫♫
