Bummis Bio-Soft Liner, Large
- When using cloth diapers that feature synthetic fabrics like suede cloth against baby's skin (as in many "pocket" type diapers), it is recommended that you choose the large size of liner, as it will not move around inside the cloth diaper
- Please note that although the bio-soft liners are highly biodegradable the flushing of any product like this can cause blockage in old or damaged drains or very sensitive septic systems
- Please discard pee soaked liners in the garbage and let the soiled liners soak a few minutes in the toilet before flushing just so that they absorb water and break down a bit before they are released into your septic system

Smaller footprint on the changing space (a consideration for us because we have limited space there)
Large enough to possibly split into 2 liners per sheet (so effectively 200 per roll instead of 100) for a smaller baby, but not for a larger one
The differences I noticed most with the Bumkins were:
Larger (could easily split into 2 liners per sheet for even a larger baby)
Pop-up style, like a tissue box, seems easier for one-handed use than the Bummis tear-off sheets. In practice, however, I found that it made little difference, because I still needed 2 hands to get the liner properly folded and positioned on the diaper! For this reason, I generally find it easiest to get the liner out and position it in the new diaper before I take the old diaper off of the baby.
Both brands seem to flush equally well, and both do an excellent job of staying in place. I cloth diapered without liners for my previous baby and with this baby until he started solids, but I definitely prefer the ease the flushable liners add and wouldn't go back to not using them at this point unless we had a septic system that couldn't handle the flushable liners. I do recommend letting the soiled liners sit in the toilet for a couple of minutes or more before flushing -- it supposedly helps them break down more easily and reduce the likelihood of clogging the toilet, though in practice I've never had either brand's usage result in a toilet clog.
All in all, I do slightly prefer the softer feel of the Bumkins, but the differences are minor, and I like the smaller footprint for the Bummis. For personal preference the Bumkins win out by a hair, but both brands are similar enough that I wouldn't hesitate to buy either.
We haven't had a problem with them being too narrow, but your mileage may vary here.
Overall, I've been very pleased with them. They are much softer than the Gerber brand of liners (and being flushable is a huge plus). We've not had any issues with flushing them either (we have a septic system and an older toilet), and they work fine for what we need.
The only thing I would caution is that if you're needing them to protect a cloth diaper from an oil-based cream, you might want to fold it or use two liners, since they are so thin. But this product comes in two rolls, so there are lots of sheets included.
In regards to the person making the claim that a tissue from the grocery store will work just as well...Think again. Typical paper towel and tissue products will break down and disintegrate in a diaper under normal wear and usage. My tight wad self has tried that. If you expect a diaper liner to work you are going to have to spend the money to BUY a diaper liner. If softness is what you want I haven't found anything better than Bummis. If multiple uses is desired something like Imse Vimse is a better choice.

This is a great product. We did cloth diapers for our kids and at first we'd have the mess of poop diapers all over the place. We tried rinsing, that failed miserably. Read morePublished 22 days ago by J&J

Used on a toddler who couldn't stand to have it in his diaper so we never got a chance to see if it worked. It's pretty intrusive, I guess and a little scratchy. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Shannon Mock

Gets the job done. Most of the time the liner bunches up even when making sure to leave the edges outside of the diaper while putting it on. Somehow it still goes in and bunches. Read morePublished 1 month ago by alleymarie
