Why I Like It
I’m back to cloth diapering for my littlest one and purchased a few of the BumGenius 4.0 diapers to add to my collection of BumGenius 3.0 diapers. I purchased some of the newer colors (which my favorite is the “Bubble” color) and did notice that there was easier access to the elastic that is around the leg openings. The hook and loop closures have also been improved and seem to last longer than the did on the 3.0 version.
There’s debate on which type of closure is best. I stuck with the hook and loop closure purely for the fit that I can get from pulling them tight. A couple moms I know mentioned that the hook and loop tabs started curling up and was losing it’s holding strength. You can request replacement tabs from BumGenius and use basic sewing skills to replace them, however I don’t want to spend the time sewing. Here’s what I did to solve this little issues. I purchased strips of hook and loop closures with sticky backs from my local craft store. I cut a piece of the hook, and a piece of the loop and stuck them together to make one solid piece (hook on one side, loop on the back). Then I trimmed the corners to make them rounder and used that on top of the curling tabs to keep them down and fastened. This piece of hook and look doesn’t get dirty so I just reuse it any time I need to.
