The original bumGenius pocket design was released in 2005, and put the bumGenius 4.0 Pocket Nappy on the map as one of the best-selling cloth nappies in the world — and this top-rated cloth nappy just got even better!

With an updated stay-dry inner fabric that stretches to provide a secure fit, new proprietory elastic designed for nappies, and a redesigned pocket that is more trim across the back, the bumGenius Original 5.0 also includes the same patented features that make bumGenius so genius! Adjustable sizing, snap closures and two inserts for customized absorbency make this a nappy for all needs: day or night, light or heavy wetters, small or big babies.

Style: Pocket Nappy - Each bumGenius 5.0 One-Size Pocket Cloth Nappies include a small‚ lightweight insert for newborns and a larger one-size insert for your growing baby. When your baby outgrows the newborn insert‚ it works as an overnight booster or as extra absorbency for heavy wetters.

Sizing: One Size Fits Most (snap down rise) - 3×3 snap down design adjusts the sizing to fit small‚ medium and large sizes (approximately 3.2-16+ kg/7-35+ lbs). Three snap-downs on the front of the nappy allow you to easily adjust the size of the nappy as your baby grows. For newborns‚ fold down the insert stopper for an extra-small rise.

Closure: Available in Snap closures

Composition: Waterproof PUL outer with soft stay dry suedecloth inside. The soft‚ waterproof outer fabric keeps the nappy trim on your newborn and toddler. Stretchy, soft‚ sueded inner fabric gently wicks moisture away from your baby's skin. Nappy comes with two microfibre inserts: a newborn insert for newborns and a one-size insert (made of 3 layers of the thickest microfibre terry available anywhere) for your older baby. Super stretchy‚ gentle leg and back elastic with rolled out casings keeps the yuk in and help to keep red marks away. The unique covered slot opening keeps your baby protected from moisture.

  • Durable snap closures help keep nappies on older babies.
  • Generous sizing accommodates larger babies.
  • Easily replaceable elastic.
  • Trim‚ snug and comfortable stretchy tabs provide a custom fit.
  • Waterproof insert stopper prevents leaking at the tummy.
  • Wide slot opening makes it easy to stuff and remove insert.
  • Slot cover protects your baby from wetness.

I won this nappy online through the facebook group MCN Reviews. I received the Mozart nappy which has a really cute print. I like the fit of the nappy and I haven't had any leaks in it yet. The leg elastics and back elastics are nice and snug but have not left red marks on my bubs skin. He is currently 6kg and has one rise snapped down.
Initially I was hesitant as I have not used microfibre or liked previous pocket nappies. The opening of the pocket is large making it easy to stuff and the inserts have 2 layers and are nice and squishy. It held up well containing his wees but at the moment is an average wetter. It fits nice and trim. If you like pocket nappies, then this is a nice and easy choice!

This is a great nappy. I had bought the previous version - BumGenius 4.0. It is soft and easy to clean and retains moisture really well. Fits perfectly well with my DD from 6 months to 2 years. Much recommended!

Love love this nappy, especially the stretchy tabs which mean I always get a good fit. The nappies I bought for my first are still going strong on bub no. 2. Just have to remind Dad and grandparents to stretch the tabs to get a snug fit, otherwise they leave it too loose and they leak.

I love, love, love this nappy.... but not the inserts! The Bumgenius shells fit great on my first bub from when we started our MCN journey at 6months and lasted through until toilet training. I'm very happily using them again on bub number 2 - they have held up well through frequent washing and storage between bubs. The winning feature of these nappies is the stretchy tabs which make for an awesome fit that is neither too tight nor too loose. These never leave red marks on my chubby bub's thighs, they never give her a muffin top despite her ample belly, and they never gape at the leg or tummy! They just fit well. (Even hubby, who tends to struggle a bit, gets a good fit every time with these!) Now, I don't love stuffing pockets, however it pays off with the Bumgenius nappy for 3 reasons: (1) stuffing the pocket for absorbency leaves the nice stay-dry inner of the nappy against bub's skin; (2) we find that other care givers find pocket nappies very easy as once stuffed (usually by me), there is no fussing or folding when snapping the nappy on, the insert stays nicely in place; Finally, (3) the Bumgenius has a generous pocket which is actually quite easy stuffing no matter your hand size. But what to stuff them with? I didn't mind the inserts at first. They are very trim, even with the additional booster, and have snaps in order to adjust the insert size as bub grows. Over time, however, I found the microfibre inserts simply weren't absorbent enough. Bamboo is all the rage in cloth nappies these days, and I wish Bumgenius would hop on the bandwagon! While the microfibre inserts dry quickly and stay soft, even when dried in the hot Queensland sun, they simply are not thirsty enough in my opinion! Not to worry though - I simply stuff my awesome Bumgenius shells with prefolds these days and save the microfibre inserts to use as boosters.
