Bummas Wipes Review and Giveaway!



Well I am getting my reviews and giveaways up even if it is 8:30 at night! The joys of motherhood!

I had the pleasure of working with a wonderful company called Bummas. The people there are so sweet!

Their Bummas Wipes are intended to be used after you wipe your baby's butt, to dry it before the diaper. I confess I spray my baby's butt with her wipes solution and dab her booty with these babies! I know they are intended for a different purpose, but this just shows how versatile they are! If I have to use a soaking wet wipe to clean my baby, then these come in handy to dry her up. They have 2 functions for me and that just makes me love them even more.

I love their sologan " After the wipe and before the dipe, use a soft kiss of cloth to dry bums off. Keep diaper rash at bay the Bummas Way"

They do state on their site that you can use a wet Bumma to clean your baby's bottom and that made me happy since that is what I have been doing!

These are my first "actual" baby wipes since all the ones I have are homemade or washcloths I turned into wipes. I have to say I can see a difference in using these!

Bummas wipes are so soft and luxurious, made out of 100% cotton - woven velour terry cloth. They make them the perfect size to use as well! All of my homemade versions are too big in my eyes. These are the perfect size measuring 5" x 7". I fold mine up and store them in a plastic wipes container I had lying around and they fit perfectly.

They also carry many different color sets:

The boys, The Girls, The Calm Ones and The Wild Ones! Aren't those adorable names? I got to try out The Wild ones. Each wipe is a different color! I love that variety. I also love The Girls for my little Violet and will be buying those next! Here is a pic of The Wild Ones up close:

You can wash your Bummas and use them again and again. I have a good feeling that these will last me through Violet being in diapers and probably on another baby! Don't tell my husband about another baby though!

These would also be amazing to use on your little one in the bath! I have to try that out next. I always feel like some baby washcloths are much too scratchy for delicate baby skin! These would feel amazing in a bath setting!

I also take my Bummas with me on the go in a zip top bag in my diaper bag. I use a small portable bay wipes solution in a squirt bottle, so these dry wipes make it easy to travel and to not have to buy disposable baby wipes. That is another bonus for me and another reason I love that they are not bulky!

You get 10 wipes per package for $16.99, which is a good value for what you get. 10 sturdy, soft and resuable baby wipes that will last you! How much would you spend on disposables? I figure a box of 8 packages of disposable wipes is about $9.00. I know I could easily go through one a month. If I spent $9.00 a month times 12 months that would equal to $108.00! If you bought 2 packages of Bummas wipes for $34.00 and reused them, you would save a lot! Not to mention their use beyond a year! What a money saver. It shouldn't be a surprise that I am all for saving money, that was a big chunk of why I started cloth diapering! Imagine how many baby wipes would be out of landfills from you reusing cloth wipes though! You would really be doing a small part to help the earth!
