Ease of Use ✩✩✩✩✩ The Bumware Extreme is just about as easy to use as a disposable diaper. The Velcro closure makes it easy on and off. The fact that it is sized means it is trimmer than many one size cloth diapers and there is no need to adjust the rise. This does mean that you will have to buy a new set of diapers when/if your baby grows out of it.
Bang for the Buck ✩✩✩ 18$ is a hard to swallow price for a Sized diaper since many leading One Size Pockets can be purchased for the same. If you value trimness then you will likely be ok with that amount, at least for a couple to have for certain outfits or occasions.
Performance ✩✩✩✩ I didn’t dare try this diaper for overnights. It is so thin that I couldn’t fathom it lasting all night. Daytime use worked perfectly fine for us with no leaks. Everett, at the longest, wore the diaper for 5 hours over a nap and a bit before that. I was expecting a leak but it didn’t happen. The diaper didn’t feel extra heavy either so that is a testament to my son not being a heavy wetter.
Fit ✩✩✩✩ I purchased a medium but think a large would have worked better for us. It did fit but I had to be very careful with applying the tabs since he was about to max out that waist. The tabs were right over his chunky thighs and posed the threat of rubbing. It did occur once. The trimness of this diaper is unbelievable and I can’t think of another cloth diaper that is trimmer.
Overall- the strangest thing was that this diaper doesn’t have elastic at the back! One of the reasons I love cloth diapers is that the back elastic holds in those poopslosions. Since buying the diaper he hasn’t pooped in it. I have a feeling if the conditions were right the poop would possibly explode up the back. Still, to those parents who worry about the bulk of cloth diapers this is a contender in the trimmest cloth diapers department!!!
