We are huge cloth diapering advocates at Little Gummi and we have been thrilled to partake in The Great Dad Challenge from Bambino Mio. This is a brand that has taken the cloth diapering world by storm with their award winning products that are designed to protect baby’s bum as much as it is the environment. Their aim is to bring superior customer service and products that will enable you to focus solely on the joys of parenthood. This shines through each nappy and the kindness behind the brand.
As part of The Great Dad Challenge we were given 5 challenges, one each day as part of a way to incorporate fatherhood into the cloth diapering world of uncanny messes and making cloth mainstream!
CHALLENGE #1 THE STAY AT HOME CHALLENGE
For this challenge we really capitalized on testing performance over anything else and found that Bambino Mio truly outdid their diapers from strong velcro to strong performance. One of the aspects we closely followed was the soft material on our sons skin. Because he has eczema sometimes different materials can flare it up and we were so happy that Bambino Mio has created a lush fabric delicate enough for even the most allergen ridden skin.
We absolutely adore the Miosolo and think it is a great fit and great alternative to get you started in your cloth nappy journey!
CHALLENGE #2 THE OUT AND ABOUT CHALLENGE
This challenge was all about testing and trying Bambino Mio Miosolo out on the go. We took our nappy downtown and hit the shops and dining without having an ‘uh-oh’ moment of “did Miller get water on him…or?” which was awesome! Bambino Mio also makes a super sleek and compact wet bag so when you do have that dire need to change the diaper, you have a leak proof bag that will handle all your needs!
CHALLENGE #3 THE OVERNIGHT CHALLENGE
As we wrap up the overnight challenge (too early, I might add! Where does the energy in these kids come from?!) We were very pleased to see that these nappys held up with our 6-8 hour sleep session and came out on top. We usually have to change the sheets for our son when he wakes up as he is a very heavy night soaker but when adding the Mioboost it really maximized protection. For overnight I would try to limit any extremely long spans of usage so you don’t have a leak but we were pretty pleased overall!
CHALLENGE #4 THE WASHING & DRING CHALLENGE
The sound of my washing machine going and the smell of soapy clean suds. Am I the only one that likes that?! We are not usually super picky about changing up brands for laundering our cloth nappies but Iove how fresh the miofresh is! Hence the name, eh?! As we complete our weeks challenge we are preparing for many more uses of our cloth diapers from Bambino Mio and their ever-so perfect designs.
We have absolutely loved partaking in The Great Dad Challenge and all of the daily activities we got to try out in doing so. Bambino Mio is giving away a start pack complete with
15 x miosolo all-in-one diapers
160 mioliners (biodegradable diaper liners)
26 oz of miofresh (diaper cleanser)

3 x mioboost (diaper boosters)
1 x diaper pail
2 x laundry bags
1 x reusable plastic tub

At Little Gummi we are huge fans of sleep suits and sacks so we of course had to add the Miracle Sleeper from Miracle Ware to our collection. This awesome sleeper makes the transition from swaddle to sleeper so much easier especially when you have routine adjusted babes such as our little ones.
At one point or another, we have all experienced the glory that is our children’s bodily fluids in the most uncanny of moments. At Little Gummi this is all too familiar and amidst a baby and a potty training two year old we are as thankful as ever for Peapod Mats and their desirable glory in a bedwetting world.
A really big interest at Little Gummi has been reusable baby wipes. We have tried the cloth diaper wipes previously but we were not exactly sure how to make that work until we came across Baby Bits which is a fantastic company built upon home made diaper wipes with an extensive topic of usage.
Do you ever need a place to safely put your little one while you do the laundry, cook dinner or just need an ‘ahhh’ moment to relax? Yes?! Me too! Look no further than this super sweet Music and Lights Comfy Car from Playgro! This plush car promotes play and learning through music as well as a safe place for sitting for those younger Littles from 6months on. While it was intended for our 7 month old, our 2 year old has taken quite a liking to the Music and Lights Comfy Car as well. It is safe to safe it is officially a Little Gummi favorite.
The Playgro Music and Lights Comfy Car is plush enough for your Little to comfortably sit without fussing (Tell me my kids aren’t the only ones who do this?!) and entertaining enough to keep them occupied and happy for endless fun. This comfy little car is the right size for 6 months and on. It has an opening at the bottom where the feet go so even my 2 year old can hop in and play in the ‘race car’ as she calls it.
With music and lights the entertainment is as endless as the development your babe will incur from this plush car. The steering wheel with activities is removable so your Little can take their favorite car with them on the go. We love to sing the wheels on the bus and the Music and Lights Comfy Car is such a great addition as it provides the ultimate hands-on learning to go right along with our song. The indicator lights blink, the horn honks and the steering wheel moves for your little driver.
We cannot get enough of the Player Music and Lights Comfy Car and think it would make a great addition to any home! With its compact and plush shell there’s no where you can’t put your little racer!
Settling in as a new, or seasoned parent can arise many questions. The baby world is always changing and improving and that doesn’t stop with breast pumps. From the original 1800’s hand pump “governed by feeling and intelligence” to todays pump that is smart phone compatible, there’s no wonder this hot market item is always changing to adapt to us, the mothers, the feeders and the providers. Lansinoh is leading the industry with their Double Electric Breast Pump and we had to share.
