Bum E Kins

After many many mornings waking up to wet sheets started to research alternatives to just stuffing a million inserts into my sons pocket diapers. I found fleece covers. Then I got to thinking these would also be awesome to have him wear during the day so his clothes don't get sucked up into the diaper and soak him. I was pointed in the direction by some other cloth mommies on a B/S/T page and by a WAHM page on Facebook to Bum E Kins. I got into contact with Heather the owner or Bum E Kins and asked her if she would be willing to have me test out one of her covers to see how they would hold up to my heavy wetter. I was very impressed with the professionalism from her and am very happy with the service I received  I got to pick my choice of prints (Thomas the Train, and Polar Bears) I just love how cute they both are on my little boy.They are super soft, and fit him like a glove. The custom made to order soakers are the way to go. I have a few others that are just done by sizes S, M, L, XL and my little man seems to be just between a large an XL. So having someone make something specifically to fit my son was an added bonus of the cute prints. The price is hard to beat since they are custom made to size, but generally speaking prices range from $7.00-$12.00 with a shipping fee of $3.00 for US customers. If you are outside the US additional fees may apply. Not bad for a custom made fleece cover that really works! Heather does such a good job and supporting another WAHM while giving my little man a soft, cute, breathable option over his fitteds makes me a very happy momma! 

Now how did they stand up to the heavy wetter!?
I first had him wear them during the day, this test was absolutely no problem with the soakers with the extra layer of fleece sewn into the wet zone. I had him wear them when I put him in his jumper. No problem! With the fleece soakers from Bum E Kins his pants didn't get caught up in his diaper! The next test was in the car seat, and not just for a short little ride, I tested them by having him wear them on a 7 hour drive to Anchorage. They passed the test! My last and final test was to see if they would hold up over night with my heavy wetter, he sleeps 12 hours or more with his fleece on so this was the REAL test. I was a little scared I must admit, not much works for us at night but by morning I was excited to see that I had no wet sheets. I co-sleep with my son and he is 7 months old now, so when I have to change sheets on my bed every morning it is NO fun! Up until last week we only had one set of sheets so this had to stop. I am happy to say that Heathers design fit our needs and would definitively recommend anyone wanting to try out fleece to give Bum E Kins a try. 

A little bit behind Bum E Kins-
Heather is a mommy herself and started to make fleece covers for her little girl after seeing the rising costs of cloth and how much it costed for her to get custom covers made for her little girl. She had friends ask her to make them some, and she asked them for their opinion. They all gave her positive feedback on them and all thought she should start to make them and sell them to other mommas so they could get a good deal on something made just for their babies. She wanted more opinions from people she doesn't know to make sure that this is something she should really take into consideration  Well all thumbs up and she went live with the FB page to sell fleece covers. She has since started making other items that I have to say I am tempted to be on her testers group since they all look like great quality and super cute! She currently makes fleece covers, fleece longies, wool soakers and longies (which she will even lanolize them for you for an additional cost!). 

If you have any questions please feel free to ask! You can email Heather directly at bumekins@gmail.com
