Econobum is a prefold and cover diapering system made by Cotton Babies, the creators of bumGenius. They are a low cost, high quality system that just about anyone can afford. They come with vibrant trim colors as well as all white.
Econobum was one of the first diapers that I purchased when I was trying to figure out what I liked when first starting out on this cloth diapering road. I found it to be a very nice system for the money. The covers are thinner than your more expensive diaper covers, but they fit very well over the included prefolds and we never had a leak with them. In some ways I liked that they were thinner because they gave a trimmer fit than some of my other covers. While they’re thinner than other covers, they don’t feel cheap and flimsy. Not a bad looking cover, is it?
The prefolds included are thick and absorbent. While they seemed a little smaller than other prefolds that I have, they’re still easy enough to use with a Snappi or to use as a tri-folded insert.
- The quality for the price
- Trim fit for a cover
- For the price of this system, nothing, though I do wish that the prefold was a little bigger
This system retails for $11.95 for a trial pack which includes a cover and three prefolds. A full kit retails for under $50 for three covers and twelve prefolds, and just a cover with a prefold is under $10. Honestly, how can you beat that?
