bumGenius Flip Nappy System

Flip re-usable nappy system It’s here!

It’s coming soon and looks set to change the way with think about cloth nappies forever.  The flip nappy system has been designed by the makers of bumGenius for parents on the go.  So what’s it all about?

The nappy consists of an outer shell with interchangeable inserts of microfibre and organic cotton.  So when you change your baby you simply change the insert and re-use the outer shell.   But the big news is there will be a DISPOSABLE insert!  You heard correctly . . . . that’s right, I said a ‘disposable insert’. Unlike any other eco-disposable nappies on the market the flip nappy disposable insert will be made from 100% biodegradable material making the flip nappy system a genuine, easy to use, green alternative to nasty supermarket nappies.   The disposable insert has already achieved Oeko-Tex certification and contains none of the chemicals commonly used in disposables.

So the idea is you buy some flip nappies with extra organic cotton or stay dry (microfibre) inserts for normal use,  if you fall behind with the washing or you’re going on holiday you can buy some disposable inserts to make life a bit easier when needed.  Huggies and Pampers watch out. . .  Cloth nappies just got a whole lot more flexible!

And because the flip nappy is made by those washable nappy experts ‘bumGenius’ it has all the features you’s expect.  Below we have a few pictures of what to expect.

    This sounds amazing! I’m wedded to real nappies, but find myself forced to use despicables (sorry, disposables!) when I go away for more than a couple of nights, as a trip to the launderette doesn’t make for a lovely break for me…
    This could be the answer – the best of both worlds. Really looking forward to seeing these nappies and giving them a go!

    Hi Sara, thanks for your reply. We’re bound to send you a sample of this new nappy as soon as we get our hands on them here at BabiPur! It was lovely to finally meet you ‘face to face’ in the shop the other day! Jo x

    We’re really excited about this new nappy by bumGenius as many of our customers admit to using disposables when they’re on holiday or when the washing gets on top of them. Also, many of our customers want the ‘all in one’ nappies but seem a bit puzzled as to why they have to wash the ‘whole thing’ every time.. It seems they want the ‘all in one’ design with outers which do not need to be washed with every nappy change. This idea of having interchangeable inserts which are available separately is fantastic! A bit like a cross between a 2 part nappy (without the bulk) and an all in one which also has disposable inserts Genius!

    The Flip nappy’s disposable insert will be 100% biodegradable which is a first for disposable nappies, even the current eco disposables are only partly biodegradable.

    As Peter says, these nappies should be with us by January 2010.. but that’s not all ! ! ! bumGenius are also bringing out another nappy called the Econobum…… more about that later 🙂
