Pure & Simple Baby~BumGenius Elemental Review & Giveaway~Friday's Fabulous Fluff Feature

When I read a little about Pure & Simple Baby on their website, I immediately felt like Rocio the mom behind the business is someone that has the exact same values I do.  With simple goals of using quality non toxic products on our kids and also making sure our actions aren't harmful to the earth I feel confident that the items in her store are not only great for my family and children but also having a one stop shop for my cloth diapering, babywearing and natural baby toy needs is an added bonus!


Rocio generously sent us the BumGenius Elemental Organic All In One cloth diaper in the moonbeam color for review.  There are so many things I love about this diaper I don't even know where to begin!
Let's start with the fact that it is an AIO (all in one) cloth diaper so you don't have to use a separate cover or stuff any pockets, the diaper is ready to go on baby as quick as a disposable only it is the natural fluffy goodness of cloth.
The soaker is sew in however you can see that the multiple layers allows for the diaper to dry easier verses being one thick piece of material.

6 layers of super absorbent organic cotton make for a great all natural fiber diaper, sometimes I am amazed at how thirsty cotton can be!  It is recommended to prewash this diaper 5-7 times because it is organic cotton it takes more prep than a microfiber diaper.
The soaker is very easily moved to the front of the diaper for boys or layered evenly in the middle for girls.  Organic cotton is not a 'stay dry' material therefore baby will feel wet, I like to use a fleece liner so Tates feels dry.
Two rows of snap closure ensures no wing droop (this diaper is only available in snaps) and a snap down rise allows this diaper to fit your baby from approximately 7 to 35 pounds.  Tates is currently about 29 pounds and the rise is fully unsnapped, the waist is snapped closed on the second set of snaps on each side.
As you can see this diaper is ultra trim and fits Tates thighs very well, never leaving a red mark.  The gentle elastic on the legs and back hold in messes great and this diaper washes very well however does take a bit longer to dry than most of our other diapers which is to be expected with an AIO.
Tates is very comfortable in this diaper and runs around playing in it on a warm day while stealing Daddy's game controller!  I adore how trim and absorbent this diaper is and would love to add more to our stash.  There are 13 colors and 2 prints available in this diaper.
Since Tates is on the higher end of the spectrum for this diaper I wanted to show how small it can really get so I grabbed his little (10" H x 6" W x 4" Dfrog friend and put him next to a tissue box for visual comparison so you can see on the smallest setting this diaper gets pretty darn small!
Buy It: Visit Pure & Simple Baby and purchase your very own BumGenius Elemental cloth diaper or any of the other brands Rocio carries!  You can also check out her wonderful selection of green toys, baby gear and apparel too!
Win It: To kick off our First Friday's Fabulous Fluff Feature, Rocio is generously giving away a BumGenius Elemental cloth diaper to one super lucky Eco Baby Mama Drama reader!  Winner must choose from in stock colors and this giveaway is open to US only.  Please fill out the Rafflecopter form below for your chance to win!
