Choosing Cloth Diapers: Flip One Size Diaper System



Econobum Diaper


Econobum Cover and Prefold

This prefold is folded ready to go into the cover. It looks like a “traditional” cloth diaper. It is a very thick diaper!

According to Cotton Babies, “Econobumâ„¢ is the cloth diapering solution for every budget! Save money while making the environmentally friendly choice to cloth diaper little one’s bum.”

At $9.95 for the cover and prefold it is definitely a budget friendly cloth diapering system!

We tried out the Econobum first on Emerson:

It was surprisingly easy to put on! Of course I had already put the prefold into the cover but it was not really any different than putting on a disposable! The snaps weren’t complicated at all like I thought they would be. It might have taken me 1 minute longer to put on than it would take me to put on a disposable.

Here she is in the Econobum! I was somewhat afraid that she might cry because it felt different but it didn’t seem to phase her one bit! It fit about the same on her waist and legs as her regular diapers the only difference was it was bulkier but she didn’t seem to care!

Close up of the Econobum all snapped up! It’s on the medium setting since Emerson is 6 months.

Here’s the sweet girl showing off her cloth diapered bottom! She seemed quite comfortable in it!

So that’s getting the diaper on and showing it off but the real question was how did it do?

We kept it on her about 2 hours and it was wet but not soaked when we changed her. She had no leaks and the cover wasn’t wet from the wet prefold!

We did not have a poopy diaper in the Econobum (I’ll share how well it stands up to poop once my baby arrives) however I am confident there would have been no leakage.

Overall, this diaper is a little more work than the Bum Genius 3.0 One-Size and the Flip Diaper since the insert has to be folded and there are no pockets to hold the prefold in. It was the bulkiest of the diapers also but for the price of $9.95 it’s a perfect cloth diaper to try for the first time to see if you like them before investing in more expensive diapers and it is a very budget friendly diaper.
