Bumgenius V5 Original Pocket Nappy Overview
BumGenius V5 Original Pocket Nappy is a a long standing best selling nappy. The original bumGenius pocket design was released in 2005 and put bumGenius on the map as one of the best-selling cloth diapers in the world. The bumGenius V5 includes the same patented features that appear on all bumGenius nappies -patented features that really do give you the best fit.
The V5 has the bumGenius insert stopper at the waist line which helps prevent leaks and maintains the perfect smooth fit at the front.
The patented stretchy tabs are fantastic and ensure the very bit fit. The stretchy tabs are so accommodating it's almost impossible to but this nappy on incorrectly.
The bumGenius is ideal for a nursery or childminder as it's so simple and quick to use. Although the fleece lining means you don`t have to use any additional liners your child care provider may prefer to use disposable paper liners inside the nappy for quick removal of solids and doing so will have no adverse effect on the performance of the nappy.
BumGenius V5 fits from 8-35lbs.
The waist fastens with poppers in my favourite vertical popper position. The vertical position holds the tabs firmly in place and minimises wing droop. The stretchy tabs also offer a highly versatile fit as the tabs stretch so you can angle the waist poppers for the perfect fit for your baby.
The nappy length is altered by the 3 x 3 poppers on the front to offer you small, medium and long length, the nappies grows with your baby.
How do I use it?
The nappy comes with two inserts one a newborn insert and a onesize insert. Newborn insert can be used for extra absorbency for heavy wetter.
Before putting the soiled nappy into the bucket remember to remove the insert from inside the nappy. This ensures when they are washed they get thoroughly cleaned and the water is spun out of them. Due to the removable inserts the bumGenius is very quick drying and remains soft to the touch even when air-dried.
Many parents stuff their pocket nappies once the inserts are dry from the wash so that the nappies are ready to go just like a disposable.

The inner fabric is a stretchy stay-dry inner fabric that stretches to provide a secure fit. The lining is super soft and wicks moisture away from delicate skin and a pocket that is trim across the back.
For night time we recommend you use a two part nappy system for excellent night time reliability. You will only need 4-5 night time nappies and ideally 2 wraps. Excellent night time nappies are the Bumble, Bamboozles or Motherease wraps.
Wash dark colours separately, especially 'dazzle', for at least two washes until you are sure no colour is coming out of them.
