Try cloth diapering before buying!
Starting out with cloth diapering can be overwhelming. There are so many styles of diapers on the market – how will you know which ones you’ll like best?
This is the main reason why we introduced our popular Diaper Trial Kits. They give you the opportunity to try out all of the styles of diapers Bumbini offers for 30 days, for about the same price as a month of disposable diapers.
How does the trial program work?
We have tried to make it as easy for you as possible. Simply order the kit through our website, and we do the rest. Your kit will arrive with everything you need – a large selection of diaper brands and styles, a diaper pail liner and wet bag, instructions for using all of them, detailed wash instruction, and our contact information in case you have any questions.
As well, your kit contains everything you need to ship the kit back to Bumbini, including a prepaid shipping label.
How long is the trial period?
30 days from when you receive the kit. We feel that a nice long trial period gives you a chance to really get to know the diapers, as well as to establish a cloth diapering routine that works for your family.
How do I ship the kit back to Bumbini?
In each kit is a shipping bag and prepaid shipping label. When your rental is due back to Bumbini, all you have to do is put all the items in the bag (clean and dry), stick the shipping label on and take it to your nearest Canada Post office. That’s it! There is no additional charge for the return shipping.
What if I have questions while I have the kit?
We hope you do – that’s one of the benefits of doing a trial is the ongoing customer support! We will answer your questions promptly through email, phone or even Skype to make sure you are on the right track.
Where do you ship the Trial Kits?
Anywhere in Canada. We don’t currently ship to other countries just because of the increased shipping costs and logistics surrounding customs.
How do you know the diapers are clean?
When a kit arrives back at Bumbini, we give it a thorough bleach soak followed by several hot washes. We then carefully inspect all the diapers for stains, wear and defects, and replace anything that isn’t suitable.
How big/old should baby be?
Since some of the diapers are one-size and don’t fit well on newborns, we recommend baby be at least 2-3 months or about 10lbs when you receive the kit. If you would like to use cloth diapers before this point, we do have a Newborn Rental Program as well.
How many diapers does the kit include?
The kit contains approximately 20 diapers, dependent on which styles we are carrying.
How far ahead should I book?
These kits are wildly popular, so we recommend booking at least a few weeks ahead of when you would like to receive the kit. We know it is difficult to predict how fast baby will grow, so feel free to book ahead with an approximate date and let us know when you are ready for your kit.
