the bummas way
Never heard of Bummas? Neither had I until I connected with the owner of Created By Mom (dot com), an online boutique created by a mom, marketing gifts made by moms to other moms. Wow, that's a mouthful. But a sensible one!
Bummas are a savvy, and stylish response to diaper rash. Made right here in California, Bummas marketing message is, "After the wipe and before the dipe, use a soft kiss of cloth to dry bums off. Keep diaper rash at bay, the Bummas way."
The premise behind the product is a multi-faceted approach to diapering. Use them to cover baby boy's privates so you don't get caught off guard, use them to dry off baby's bum after using a conventional wipe or go green by wetting them and using them in place of a wet wipe.
Sold in a pack of ten wipes, and a variety of colors, these cotton wipes are far more useful than they even admit! With two kids nearly out of diapers, I plan on storing some with the night time diapers, stocking a few with the bath supplies, packing a few in my handbag, and keeping few in the car. Not only are they soft on bums but I imagine they are going to prove very handy on little fingers, toes & noses too!
Packaged in a darling brown wrap which includes both the history of the company & cleverly written directions for use, a pack of Bummas retails for $21.00 and makes a perfect gift for a new mom.
Support moms & locally made products. You can find Bummas on their website or where I did, on Created by Mom (dot com).
