This is the STAY-DRY SHELL ONLY. We do not include microfiber inserts because cotton inserts are superior for so many reasons. Stuff this pocket diaper shell with your own cotton inserts of your choice, sold separately. Prefolds or flats that you already own are wonderful inserts. See below.

The original bumGenius pocket design released in 2005 put bumGenius on the map as one of the best‐selling cloth diapers in the world — and this top‐rated cloth diaper just got even better! With an updated stay‐dry inner fabric that stretches to provide a secure fit and a redesigned pocket that is more trim across the back, the bumGenius Original 5.0 also includes the same patented features that make bumGenius so genius! Adjustable sizing, snap closures and two inserts for customized absorbency make this a diaper for all needs: day or night, light or heavy wetters, small or big babies.

Made in USA

Oeko‐Tex Standard 100 certification indicates that bumGenius diapers have been stringently tested and are free from harmful or problematic substances.

Stay‐dry lining is super soft and wicks moisture away from delicate skin

Waterproof outer cover and insert stopper prevents leaks

Note from Karen: I'm so happy this diaper is now available without the microfiber inserts included! I could never succeed in washing microfiber. It is so difficult to get microfiber (polyamide) clean. Cotton washes easily, but not those stubborn microfiber inserts.

What to use to stuff them with? What absorbency should you put inside the pocket? There are many choices and different preferences. Here are some ideas (sold separately).

Smallest rise: Newborn orange edge prefold (bulky but absorbent), or Birdseye flat in size Half (trim), otr 2 yellow edge small sherpa doublers or 2 blue edge Cloth-eez Inserts (you control bulk/trimness by putting either 2 or 3 in the pocket)

Medium rise: Novice light green edge prefold, or Birdseye small/one-size flat

Largest rise, unsnapped: Medium red edge prefold or Intermediate blue edge prefold,or Birdseye small/one-size flat or Muslin flats, or 3 green edge sherpa doublers.

There are many choices and different opinions about what works at what rise setting. Fit and needs vary.

Here is a link to a blogger's review of this Mama Bananas Adventures Blog

Note from Karen: I don't care for microfiber. I don't like how it feels on my hands and I can't get it clean in the wash. Don't confuse "microfiber" with microfleece or polar fleece which is a stay-dry layer and is ok. Microfiber is polyamide and it holds onto urine and stink. Cotton washes more easily. Without going into the science of why this is true, experinces shows that this really is true. Keep diaper washing simple and use cotton prefolds, flats or cotton inserts in your quality made in USA pocket diapers. You will be glad that you did.
