I have been cloth diapering for a little over a year and it seems every couple months, I find a new feature to love about certain cloth diapers. While I am not a huge velcro fan, and 95% of my diapers are snap closure, I really wanted to try a SoftBums Echo diaper!
I was sent a SoftBums Echo cloth diaper in *Sugar and Spice Giraffes* print for review.
|Don't you just love that print!!?!|
SoftBums Echo Features:
- SoftBums Patent Pending Slide²Size is the ONLY variable adjustment of it's kind
- Fits all legs widths from 4" - 14" for NO red marks EVER. Made in the USA!
- Choose your own Pods for a customized diapering system!
- SoftBums Echo looks smaller than leading brands, because it's Ultra Trim
- No Leaks, Thanks to Slide²Size Technology!
- SoftBums Echo protects against rash; up to 80% less rash than disposables!
- Industrial strength velcro closures are long lasting and won't "wear out" like other velcro
- Reusable Echo shell saves money, space, and resources

I am so used to stuffing pocket diapers...when I got this diaper, I got a little excited because there is no need to stuff anything! The "pod" just snaps in and the diaper is ready to use. This would eliminate a lot of diaper laundry time if I had more of these.
|The Pod contains 4 layers of absorbent microfiber and are topped with creamy soft microfleece.|
Look at the photo below...you can actually SEE the softness! (the smoother texture is what will be against baby's skin)
The SoftBums Echo has a perfect fit on BuBu.
Since I started using this diaper, I am starting to love velcro! Having a velcro closure allows me to get the perfect fit around BuBu's waist. When using snaps, sometimes the snaps are in a bad spot, leaving me with the choice~ leave it loose or a bit too tight.

Now, on to the exciting part...the sizing for this diaper is genius!
The SoftBums Echo diaper has a unique Slide2Size sizing system. The Slide2Size system allows you to adjust the size of the leg openings easily by using an elastic with a toggle, for each leg. If that confused you, please refer to the photo below.
|Sized to the smallest setting~looks like the perfect size for a newborn*although I unfortunately didn't get to test it this way.|
|Largest setting~although the velcro would allow a larger waist setting.|
SoftBum Echo diapers come in 9 colors and 4 super cute prints!
I have been nothing but impressed with the SoftBums Echo cloth diaper! This diaper washes and dries easily, it does not leak and the hook and loop velcro is heavy duty! By the way, the laundry tabs work GREAT! They stay fastened and did not snag my other diapers while in the washer and dryer. This diaper works 100% at containing poo...even tummy bug poo!! Most important, the SoftBums Echo has not left any red marks on BuBu's legs, waist or back! I haven't had an issue at all with this diaper! Definitely planning on adding at least one more of these to my stash!
Good news for all my snaps fans, SoftBums now come with snaps!!
You can purchase SoftBums at the SoftBums website as well as many of their retailers. The Echo shell retails for $21.95.
