bumGenius V3 is discontinued, New nappy to be launched!

bumGenius V3 Discontinued

Big news from Cotton Babies over in the US (makers of bumGenius and Flip) . . . The best selling bumGenius one-size V3 nappy is to be discontinued and replaced by a completely new nappy.    The news was announced on the Cotton Babies blog yesterday with details of dates for the new product.  Full details of their new nappy will be released on 29th June and it will also be available for pre-order from this date with delivery expected 14th July.

What will the world’s biggest washable nappy brand come up with to replace their best selling nappy, well let’s speculate.  The “Flip” nappy and the “bumGenius Organic” nappy are to remain unchanged so we can guess that the new nappy will be either a pocket nappy (as the bumgenius V3) or an all in one nappy.  We can be pretty sure it will be a microfiber nappy as it seems unlikely they would leave a gap in their range.  I’d also guess that aplix (velcro) will be ditched in favour of poppers to give a hard wearing and long lasting nappy.

Other than this we just don’t know and will have to wait until 29th June to find out.  We don’t even know what it will be called, bumGenius one-size V4 ? bumClever ? We’d love to hear any guesses you might have on the new name, add a comment below (just for fun).

    They cant go I love them.

    I really dont know what they can do? Maybe change the microfibre

    Bit of a tangent, but can the microfibre inserts be washed at 90 occasionally? Thinking of varying my washing patterns.

    poppers would be a bonus, definitely.

    I’ve washed the microfbre inserts occasionally at 90 when they get a bit stinky – they’re fine (and smell lovely and clean).

    I never quite saw the attraction when I first starting using cloth and gathering advice from other cloth users but as it turns out I am not a huge fan of velcro. Poppers would make me give them another go! I love Flips!

    bum ingenious? bum star? bum go?

    as you can see I don’t work in advertising…..
