I received this item free for review. All opinions remain my own.
Am I crazy to think that Ella Bella Bum diapers have a cult-like following? (Not a scary cult, a happy, fluff-loving cult!) These made-in-Canada creations are ridiculously popular, with product stockings selling out like Justin Bieber tickets back in his heyday. (Isn’t it nice that his heyday is over?)
So what’s all the fuss about? Let’s take a look:
I’m so sad that it’s winter and I can’t let him run around in just his EBB all day, all the time!
What I love about our EBB:
- The fit is ample even on a 30-lb, tall, toddler;
- Athletic wicking jersey is hands down my favourite “stay dry” pocket fabric. It launders much easier than the more commonly-used fleece;
- The colours are so carefully matched on all aspects of the diaper;
- There’s a lot more stretch to the waist than other brands, including BumGenius;
- The placement of the closure snaps is my favourite (two rows of closure snaps) and I don’t miss the hip snap at all.
- It’s made in Canada by Sam and her small team of WAHMs.
What I love less about our EBB:
- You know what, the only thing I don’t love is the insert. I find it is just too thick for our needs. It may be perfect for heavy wetters: it’s a bamboo/zorb combo that you can fold up and snap depending on the rise of the diaper. I never used the included booster with the insert, but I did love the booster in other diapers! I prefer the fit of our EBB with our Öko hemp trifold. Trimmer, and, in our case, plenty absorbent. Luckily, EBB pocket diapers can be purchased without inserts!
Is it weird that I kinda think that every cloth-diapered baby should get to wear an EBB? Well, that’s what I think.
To get your hands on an EBB of your very own, keep a close watch on the EBB Facebook Page for stocking details, shop right away for the solid-colour Ella’ssentials online, and if you’re looking for second-hand (not necessarily cheaper) EBBS, join the Facebook B/S/T group.
Have you tried an EBB?
Gotta pay the bills...
