I love having organic / natural fiber diapers in my stash. For the past two years, I wondered what the rave was about bumGenius Elementals, and I finally got to try one!

Bouncing Babies sent me the BG Elemental in my favorite print – Albert! (My son calls this the “Science” one! He has the Albert for his Flip Trainer – haha). Hubby loves this print of course, being a chemistry teacher. But enough about the cute print. What about the diaper!?

To those familiar with bumGenius brand diapers, at first glance, the Elemental looks similar. It’s a one-size diaper with the same butterfly snap closures and 3×3 sizing options as the BumGenius 4.0.

But then… you notice the differences.

Like the All-in-One “no stuff” attached insert – in 100% certified organic cotton! Which you can fold to size for your baby and place the extra layers in front for a boy or middle for a girl! This insert / liner is created in two sections so it’s fast drying.

Or the absorbent non-wicking layer inside the waterproof PUL outer.A gentle leg elastic which is slightly different than the BG 4.0. Be sure this is rolled IN otherwise you risk having the inner layer poking out which then would wick into your child’s clothing – otherwise, if you put this diaper on correctly you will not have any leak issues.

I love love love this diaper, probably mostly because it’s an AIO and Organic cotton. And gives me the same great fit as all my other BumGenius products! Were it not for the $25 price tag I would certainly have more of these in my stash! But you can always find a good deal if you scope out the sales!

Bouncing Babies, owned by two moms who are just as cloth diaper addicted as the rest of us, carries an extensive line of cloth diapering products, including the full range of bumGenius Cloth Diapers. They also have a Cloth Diaper Package for mamas just getting started – I highly recommend checking this package out! I did one similar when I started out and tried several brands and styles of diapers to see what best suited my needs. The Bouncing Babies package includes a umGenius Elemental, too, plus several other one-size diapers and accessories!

    We love the bumGenius Freetime diapers. I have been wanting to try other bum genius diapers and I think the Elemental will be next. I love all the colors and patterns!

    Thanks for the review. I have not yet tried the Elemental. I should though, especially since I really like how their 4.0s and Freetimes work for us.
