A few of our favorite brands here at DDL have won iParenting awards!  Congratulations to Sweet Pea Diapers, whose video review you can see here, Fuzzibunz (whose One Size I will be reviewing in two weeks), Bummis, and Cottonbabies for their new Econobums!

Now, the question remains, what are Econobums?  This is the description given by iParenting:

Designed by the makers of bumGenius, we are introducing a new one-size diapering system called “econobum”. Econobum is a less expensive cloth diaper solution for every budget. Econobum is the affordable choice in cloth diapering.

Are you tingling with excitement yet?  The photo provided on the iParenting page is just a plain white diaper.  You cannot tell anything!  The product isn’t even on the market yet, but apparently you don’t have a long wait.  I decided to tweet @bumGenius with the question, “What is econobums?”  Here is what she wrote back:

What do you think it is?  A snap one size?  Pocket, All in One, All in Two?  An elastic adjusted rise?  Lets conjecture in the comments with your best guess!

***Edited for updates!  The Econobum will unveil at the ABC Kids Expo in Las Vegas September 13 and will also hit shelves in September.  The Econobums Website is now live!  Check it out.  There is a picture of a baby wearing one, presumably, but you cannot see any details. ***Rumors: Price point will be around 15.00, they are made in the US.

Kim Rosas began Dirty Diaper Laundry in 2009 out of a desire to help more parents understand modern cloth diapers. She lives in Florida with her husband of 5 years and her two boys. Even though none of her boys wear diapers anymore she is still just as committed to promoting them. In her spare time Kim enjoys video editing, photography, and coffee.

    How cool!!! Hmmm, I would guess All in Two, seems like reusable shells with low cost inserts is a pretty popular way of reducing the cost of cloth diapers lately.

    Updated info: the Econobums will be unveiled September13-14 at the ABC Kids Expo. Now I really wish I were going.

    I am concerned they will be cheaply made and utilizing some sort of cheap labor. The adage is true, you get what you pay for. I guess we will just have to see. I feel bad for all of the wahms out there that will loose business because of this because of what they have to charge to make a dipaer and a profit because they are not a big company like cottonbabies. Can’t wait to see them though.

    i’m late with this… im guessing its their answer to the ‘g diaper’ amd doing a reusable shell with an insert.

    I’ve been testing these new Econobum nappies for British Mother & Baby Magazine. They are a one size reusable waterproof outer shell with a cotton insert, that you fold different ways depending on the age of the baby. They are a change from the usual reusable nappy but good on them for coming up with something that is for people on a budget.

      So it is similar to the Applecheeks or AMP? Sounds interesting! I will get to see it when I go to the ABC Kids expo. Thanks for sharing!

  • Sarah

    Well, guess she did not get you to sign a disclosure Ethans Mum. Seems pretty retro to me but I agree with the comparison to the gdiaper. They are not cheap though.

    But will they have a disposable insert?
