Sarah Van Bogart, founder, co-owner, and designer for SoftBums, has been sewing and designing diapers for over 12 years. She brings her unique experience as a mother of five, La Leche League leader and even training as a midwife to her products.

They have an All-in-two called Echo and their Pocket diaper/All-in-Two called Omni released after it. Softbums have had a great reputation amongst cloth diapering parents and many of their fans are brand loyal. Unlike most other one size cloth diapers, their one size does fit newborns quite well and DDL compared this fact in a video.
