They're here! They're here!!

BumGenius 3.0s are my very favorite diapers in the whole wide world. Not too long ago, they announced that they were coming out with a new diaper - BumGenius 4.0s. We ordered a couple of 'em... and they arrived today!

The first big change is the colors! BumGenius recently stopped making bright colors, and now are making pretty pastels with these diapers. The older colors also looked brighter on their website, but are the same as before. The lighter color is "Sweet", which is a light green {the camera flash makes it look white}. The other green is "Grasshopper", which is the same as an older color. You can see them in this picture - the two on top are 4.0s, and the bottom is a 3.0:

The next big thing is that they are way bigger than the older style. In fact, they are a whole size bigger! Now, both versions are considered a "one size" diaper {that fit from small babies to large}. On the highest setting, the 3.0s are about the same size as a medium sized BG. The new 4.0s are about the same size as a large diaper. The Grasshopper color is the 3.0, the Sweet is the 4.0:

The size is also a big deal because they were smaller than other one size diapers before. Now they're even as big as Fuzzibunz diapers.

Another HUGE change is the fasteners. They now offer snaps, and the hook and loop is a lot different than the previous styles. Hopefully it lasts better!

That being said, our first cloth diapers we bought almost 2 years ago were BumGenius 3.0s, and they still work great! The hook and loop fasteners are a little curly and worn, the inners are dingy, and the elastics are a little stretched though. And these new BumGenius 4.0s make it easier to change the elastics if they get stretched and worn. Here's a picture of our old and new version 3.0s:

Overall, I'd say these are huge changes, and super great for me. Now I can wear my BumGenius diapers even longer. Here's me in my old 3.0, and in my new 4.0. As you can see, I have a whole snap setting of room to grow!

Have you tried the new BumGenius 4.0 diapers? Let me know what you think of them! If you haven't, but want to, Mom's Milk Boutique has them in stock with free shipping!!
