What’s a Diaper Demo?
Meet up with Bummin’ Around for 20-30 minutes to learn all about our diapers! Touch them, feel them! Let's diaper a teddy bear together (or your toddler or your baby)!
How does a Cloth Diaper Service work?
Once each week, Bummin’ Around brings a fresh supply of clean cloth diapers to your home and picks up your soiled diapers. Together, we'll determine how many diapers and liners you'll need each week and then we'll deliver the right amount, right on time.
When you're done changing your baby, toss the cloth diaper and any liners or wipes you've used, into the bag provided by Bummin' Around. The day before Diaper Delivery Day, you'll be contacted, via text, for your clean diaper count and given the approximate delivery time. On Diaper Delivery Day, you'll put out your dirties and we'll make the swap, whether you're home or not. And we'll make sure you always have enough clean cloth diapers and liners on hand (including delivering extras if needed).
What are Bummin' Around diapers?
Our diapers were designed by a local mom and sewn together at an independent facility in Edmonton (story coming)! They are one of a kind!
Bummin' Around diapers have a natural cotton interior, a sewn in bamboo liner, and soft fleece exterior:
Cotton Terrycloth Interior – natural, soft material against your baby’s sensitive bottom
Fleece Interfacing – fleece not only has great absorption, it also wicks moisture away from the skin and in this case, toward the bamboo
Bamboo Felt Liner – exceptional absorption properties, dries quickly, feels cool when wet
Fleece Exterior – it's so soft, has great absorption, and wicking-back ability (keeping the moisture inside the diaper so your shell stays drier longer)
Multiple snaps for best fit choices
Layers of loveliness!

These wee little diapers are designed for preemies and small newborns. With their triangular shape and fitted legs and waist, these diapers fit well and keep in those newborn messy messes!

Small: 8 lbs to 15 lbs
Perfect for the bigger newborn, the fitted legs and waist hold in the messes while the cotton and bamboo work to wick moisture away from baby's delicate bottom!
After the first few weeks, expect to use up to 60 diapers per week! That's almost 250 diapers per month kept out of our landfill! Excellent!
Medium: 15 lbs to 25 lbs
Life is getting busy and your baby is on the move (or so close) so, it's important to have a diaper that fits around the legs, back and waist, for ease of movement, comfort, AND retaining the messes!
You can expect to go through 35-50 diapers per week At the low end, that's 140 diapers per month not in our landfill! Brilliant!
Large: 24 lbs and up
Carrying on with our fitted legs and waist, these large diapers hold in the mess, while giving your child lots of range of motion and comfort!
You can expect to be using around 35 diapers per week. That's 140 diapers per month not in our landfill! Super!
As your child potty trains and moves into underpants, you can rest easy knowing you kept 2000 pounds per child per year of disposable diaper waste out of our landfills by choosing cloth! Well done!
Extra Protection Liners
Some babies are heavy wetters, and may need extra protection, especially at night! Included with our service, Bummin' Around offers three different choices of liners:
Cotton Terrycloth Liner
Same as the interior of Bummin' Around diapers, adding an extra layer of cotton terrycloth will offer that little bit of extra protection your baby needs to stay dry!
With it's excellent absorption and wicking characteristics, fleece makes an great diaper liner, and offers slightly better protection than the cotton terrycloth liner.
Fleece-Microfiber Combo Liner
These double-sided, colour-coded, and super absorptive liners are great for overnight use!
- Orange side up (soft) - fleece absorbs and wicks away moisture
- Yellow side down (rough) - microfiber has excellent absorption and retention properties but should not go against your baby's bottom
