I have another great find for all the moms of babies out there! Bummas is a company that makes small, soft, luxurious, eco-friendly baby-sized cloths made especially for drying your baby’s bottom (and for blocking surprise squirts!).
Bummas was created by Casey Schwartz, a mom of a baby boy who received all kinds of advice on how to diaper her new baby. I’m sure all the moms out there can relate. I know I received so much advice when I had my first child that I often wondered what the right way to do things was! Even with all the advice, Casey still didn’t know how to dry her little guy’s “stuff” after a change. His bum was too wet to just put a diaper back on and she didn’t want to have to blow air down there to get things dry. So she created Bummas which solved her problem!
Bummas are for use after you wipe the baby off, but before you put the diaper back on. It helps to keep diaper rash away and eliminates the need for powders or talc. For little boys, you can place the Bummas over his parts so you don’t get a surprise attack. You can also use them instead of a baby wipe- just wet a Bummas.
Bummas come in packs of ten and there 4 colourful themed combinations in each pack. They are made from 100% cotton-woven velour Terry Cloth and are 5″ x 7″ in size. They are durable and can be machine washed over and over and won’t pill, shrink or fade.
I tried Bummas out on my little niece, Avery who is 10 months old. We used them after each diaper change to dry little Avery off and didn’t use any powder. Avery didn’t get a diaper rash so the Bummas do their job well! Laura also used them after Avery’s bath to dry her off. She found them to be a nice, soft thick material that absorbs moisture extremely well- even better than a towel.
I received the Wild Ones Bummas which contains 10 assorted colours. They also have The Boys, The Girls and The Calm Ones. I’m sure this product would work well on a little boy to block a stray spray. We are all girls in our family so I wasn’t able to test it out on a little boy. But seeing how well it absorbs, I am sure it would do a fantastic job.
The price of the Wild Ones Bummas is $16.99 on their website and they offer worldwide shipping. I think it would make a great gift for a baby shower or for a new mom. In fact, Bummas was featured in Pregnancy Magazine’s 120 Best Products for Mom and Baby in 2009.
