Review: Bummis Super Brite Diaper Cover

Bummis Super Brite (Small)

2 weeks old Baby V in a small Bummis Super Brite

During Baby V’s first month at home when he poo-ed countless times, he primarily used traditional cloth diapers (lampin) with a diaper cover. I own two small Bummis Super Brite Diaper Covers in Yellow and Blue.

They contained explosive breastfed poo very well and we have never experienced a single leak with these diaper covers. *Truly Impressed!*

Pros:

  • Strong protection against leak (pee & poo)
  • Generous sizing — Baby V used Small from 0 to 4 months old, despite being a large baby

Cons:

  • Velcro tabs produce a relatively loud noise when opened — may awake a sleeping baby
  • Stitching on the velcro tab of 1 diaper cover came loose after a while (This was easily fixed by my seamstress mum.)

    Is the lampin you mentioned the gauze-like material commonly used in SG? I tried it on my baby when he was a new born and he cried non stop the moment he pees on a fresh one. end up I had to stop using it as he can be sleeping, pee and woke up crying.. Now I’m using them to catch my milk and hopefully can use again for #2 in future.

      Yes, lampin is the traditional cloth nappy, gauze-like material, the type our mothers’ generation used.

      Have you tried using it with a disposable / washable stay-dry liner? With the liner, the pee flow into through the liner into the nappy, while baby remains relatively dry. Washable microfleece or suede cloth liner is the same stay-dry material as most modern pocket diapers.

      The lampin is also useful for potty training stage, when you’ll want to let him feel wet instead of dry and comfortable. It speeds up the training process. For example, for pre-bedtime, after wiping / bathing Jae, I may put a lampin on him, go through his bedtime routine of milk drink and stories, use potty, then put on night-time diaper.
