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.
When it comes time to change the diaper, you just open up and you can see that the liner has caught most of the poop. Think of it like an air filter for your house. The air goes through, but the particulates gather on it until you dispose of it. This is the same thing. The liquid goes through, and the brown stuff gathers. You grab the edges and drop it in the toilet, flush away knowing that this is biodegradable and safe for the environment. You also just saved yourself a TON of work trying to clean off the cloth diapers. Sure there's a little brown stuff that gets through from time to time, or squeaks around the edges. Then there are the explosions and you know there is nothing saving you when that happens. But 98% of the time, you've saved yourself 98% of the poop cleaning labor.
You can't go wrong with this product. We have probably purchased 4-5 rolls of this. They last a long time and don't be shy about using them in EVERY diaper. The cost is incredibly cheap, and well worth the time saved. I highly recommend this product, and my does as well. If you have any questions please ask. I'd love to make sure you get the right thing and this is it.
