I vividly remember, while packing my hospital bag, I was browsing through diaper options on FirstCry.com, when I stumbled upon Bumberry Diapers. Back then, unfortunately, I had absolutely no clue of the concept of advanced cloth diapering and was sure that I won’t be able to make heads or tails of it, so I decided to pick the conventional cloth nappies and a pack of disposables instead. Slowly and gradually, I learnt more and before I realized, I was exclusively cloth diapering my little one. Exactly 10 months later, I saw Bumberry make an appearance on a social media platforms too and realized it was the perfect time to try them out. So, after a month of extensive use, I’m here to share my personal experience with you all.
Bumberry sent me two diapers to review: One pocket diaper and one cover diaper along with a wet-free insert. Let’s dive into the review of all three.
Pocket Cloth Diaper with one 3 Layered Microfibre Insert
Bumberry pocket diaper comes in a package along with one insert which is apt for the diaper. It’s designed for 2.5 to 15 kg which means you can start using it right from birth and use until toddler-hood. The pack said it’s best for sleep time and quite honestly, I wasn’t convinced how a pocket diaper would perform at first, so I waited and tried using it during the day only. After one week, I mustered some courage and used it for night-time and boy! I was blown away by its performance. Even when I tried it on her for the first time, it stayed absolutely dry as if it was freshly dried in the sun- and that was after more than 13 long hours of being worn!!
It’s trim, perfectly sized and the snap buttons are placed appropriately to fit all sizes. The outer cover is soft and inner lining is great too. However, the microfibre insert doesn’t seem to be of the same quality like that of the cover diapers. Although, it doesn’t come in contact with the skin and absorbs pee really well, so I have nothing to complain about.
Price: Rs. 780/- for the set
Available on: Firstcry, Amazon, Hopscotch and their website
Cloth Diaper Cover with 1 Bamboo Insert
This cover diaper is a great day time option, especially in winters. Since it comes along with a bamboo insert- which is known for super absorption and its quick drying properties, it’s the best you can get for the season. I loved how soft the upper part of the insert is which makes it suitable for even kids with highly sensitive skin.
In my use, I noticed that it usually lasts for 5-6 hours easily after which it has to be changed.
Price: Rs. 760/- for the set
Available on: Firstcry, Amazon, Hopscotch and their website etc.
Wet Free Insert:
If you’re considering to buy a diaper for your small baby who’s extremely sensitive to the feeling of wetness and gets cranky easily, then this insert is for you! It has three layers of microfibre terry cloth with one layer of extra dry suede to serve the purpose. It’s designed to fit along with Bumberry cover diapers and miraculously keeps both the diaper and the baby’s skin absolutely dry. Of all the products, this one took me by surprise the most! I’d highly recommend trying this insert. Priced at Rs. 660/- for 3 inserts, I believe it’s a steal.
Available on: Official website of Bumberry, Firstcry, Amazon, Hopscotch etc.
I hope you found the review helpful!

P.S. This was a sponsored post but my opinions remain unaffected by the association.
Cloth Diapering is a sustainable and economic option only if the diapers are taken good care of. Since they go on the bum and in the machine very frequently, they’re quite likely to develop molds, pilling or reduce the life of the fabrics used.
To prevent these consequences, it’s important to follow certain rules/tips that ensure they remain well maintained. If you’re a cloth diapering mama, these tips will definitely help you make your diapers last longer and stay fresher.
Tip 1: Under The Water 🚿
Even if you’re unable to wash the diapers immediately, make sure you put them under running water so that the stain/smell of the pee is washed right away.
Tip 2: The Storage Story 🤨
Store the soiled diapers in a breathable pail (those with holes) separately until they’re washed. Also, after drying store them in a cloth bag or a different shelf altogether such that they don’t get twisted.
Tip 3: Don’t Spin Me Everyday 😫
Washing them regularly in the machine reduces their life span. Opt for gentle handwashing once in a fortnight at least.
Tip 4: I Need Some Vitamin D Too 😉
Sunlight acts as a natural disinfectant. Try to sun-dry them often. It’ll not only kill the microorganisms but also make the diapers whiter.
Tip 5: Don’t Soften Me, Please! 🤭
Avoid using rash creams and fabric softeners. They stick on to the soakers and clog the pores, which may result in early leaking of pee from the diapers.
These were some of the tips I tried which helped me in keeping our Superbottoms in a super condition!

Happy cloth diapering to you 🙂
Yes, they’re environmental friendly and don’t take 500 years to discompose unlike its disposable variant, they’re economical and oh-so-cute! But here are additional 5 reasons why you should consider cloth diapering–
1. Space savers:
In a city like Mumbai, where most of the homes are already doll-sized, baby stuff takes almost all the space. After my baby’s arrival- came home her crib, her rocker/bouncer, a basket to keep toys/books and cupboard for her clothes and diapers too. I remember vacating one complete shelf in my wardrobe so that there’s room for her disposable diapers- which I generally purchased in bulk.
Cloth diapers, on the other hand, are usually limited in number and can be easily stacked with baby clothes 😊
2. Good for the animals:
How many times did you notice animals around the dumping yard, trying to dig in the garbage to feed themselves? I always feel bad when I throw pads/diapers in the dustbin and fear these animals accidentally opening the pack to eat the disposables filled with excreta. Cloth diapers are just not good for the environment, they’re good for the animals too.
3. CDs can replace bloomers:
Now I don’t need to worry about what can I make her wear under those tiny frocks. Cloth diapers double as bloomers and look absolutely adorable too!
4. Signs of cold:
Those who aren’t moms yet, may find this gross- so please skip this part if you aren’t prepared for #pooptalk 🙈💩
We all know how stickiness and mucus can be a sign of cold. While on disposables, I often cleaned her quickly and threw the diaper without checking for any stickiness on it. Since cloth diapering demands washing, I am able to detect cold easily and treat her before it affects her health adversely.
5. Not bulky on the bum:
My daughter can stand wetness, but not bulkiness. She cries her lungs out when the disposable diaper gets bulky- and if it’s OTB all night, she doesn’t sleep well. We all know how the gels take in the pee and swell up thus giving the dry feel, but resulting in very heavy diapers by the morning. After switching to AIO, that did not happen and she now sleeps peacefully!
