Soft Bums sent their Echo System with an organic bamboo pod for us to review this time around. If I had to wear a diaper all day, I would want to wear one with an organic bamboo pad inside. Can you say soft?! Oh and it does its job too, we haven’t had any leaks. I love that the pod snaps into the echo diaper, so it stays put when trying to chase around a toddler during a diaper change. They are also very budget friendly, as you can reuse the shell a few times with a new pod to cut down on the amount of diapers you need to buy. Logan still rocks his Omni diaper, but I’m loving the trimness of the Echo diaper now that he has stretched out.
Both the Echo and Omni fit from birth to potty training. They use “industrial strength closures” that won’t wear out (unlike some of the other diapers in my stash). The quality of these diapers is outstanding. I think they are the perfect diapers to show hesitant husbands/daycares/friends/etc. how simple cloth diapering can be. You simply place a pod in the echo diaper shell and place on baby. Or with an Omni, you can either stuff the diaper and/or place a pod on top (a great option for super soakers). Soft Bums offers a bunch of different pod options, so you can customize your diaper to your baby’s absorbency needs.
Echo Shells with Slide²Size are like no other! Unlike other one-size-fits-all diapers, the Echo uses no unsightly, complicated external snaps to size the Shell. The secret is the Slide²Size system, which adjusts the size of the diaper by letting you choose the size of leg openings, just like you'd work a drawstring bag and similar to high quality baby clothes and athletic gear. This diaper is so adjustable that it has no actual sizes at all! You can adjust the leg openings to be anywhere from 2″ to 14″. This means SoftBums Echo with Slide²Size really will fit a newborn, and really will fit a potty training toddler. Only SoftBums can guarantee to fit EVERY baby

Indulge yourself and your baby with this plush, top of the line diaper. We use only the highest quality materials to ensure a diaper that will last for years, and still look great. Support Fair Trade by supporting a USA business. Because we only make our shells in the US, we can keep a close eye on quality, ensuring a diaper that is top quality every time. Our elastic is the best we could find, and have tested it for years on many babies, including our own, and it really does last for years. Our premium quality, industrial strength, hook and loop closures are made to work well wash after wash, dry after dry without curling or melting. The tabs are nice and wide so they stay closed through the wash cycle, are much easier to put on, and more adjustable in size than snap diapers. Dads love Velcro diapers! The PUL and Fleece on our diapers will last regardless of how you wash them. We don’t like a diaper that doesn’t last, or is too hard to use, and we think you feel the same way.

Our Echo and Omni shells are Made in the USA with highly talented women at their sewing machines, to help you and your baby enjoy cloth diapering.
Sarah Van Bogart, founder, co-owner, and designer for SoftBums, has been sewing and designing diapers for over 10 years. She brings her unique experience as a mother of five, La Leche League leader and even training as a midwife to her products. She works hard to provide the best products she possibly can, because she knows how frustrating it is to have a diaper that fits badly, leaks or wears out after just a few months.
The Slide²Size system is the result of years of designs and prototypes in Sarah's quest to create the perfect one-size-fits-all diaper. It all started when one of Sarah's friends bought a whole supply of small size diapers for their newborn son. They loved the diapers, but before long he had outgrown them all! They were so frustrated that they decided not to buy more diapers in a larger size and started using disposables instead. Sarah knew there had to be a better way and started working on her first one-size design. This was in 2003, and hundreds of prototypes and patterns later, the SoftBums one-size-fits-all diaper was born!
As awesome as the original one-size SoftBums diaper was, it was made even better with adjustable leg elastic. It was Sarah's husband Brian, with his technical background, who helped inspire the adjustable leg design now known as Slide²Size. With Slide²Size, babies with super skinny legs as well as babies with super chubby legs get to wear the same diaper and have a nice trim fit with no leaks! Pregnant moms can finally buy a diaper before baby is born and know that SoftBums will actually fit their tiny 6 lb newborn and last until potty training no matter what size or shape baby is!
SoftBums now sells the Echo diaper and the new Omni diaper with Slide²Size on www.softbums.com and through a growing list of stores in the US and Canada. Check one out now and discover why we think this is the best-fitting diaper in the world!
