The creation of Bummas came about when we had our first baby boy. When your first arrives, you are given all kinds of advice: "Use the wet commercial wipes, don’t use the wet commercial wipes, use gauze; use whatever is handy to block the pee; use another diaper to block the pee; don’t use that, use this; use powder to dry them off, don’t use powder-it contains talc and studies have linked talc to cancer.”
The one thing that was never mentioned was how to dry our little guy’s “stuff” off after the clean up. Our baby’s bum was just way too wet to put a diaper back on--and blowing down there until you’re blue in the face just wasn’t working. Thus Bummas were born. A soft absorbent, luxurious baby cloth to soak up all the wetness.
BUMMAS SUGGESTED ROUTINE
Grab a Bumma cloth wipe before opening the diaper. Sneak “attacks” are frequent and will happen the second you open the diaper! Place the Bumma over the privates while tending to the other parts. One Bumma will soak up an entire pee. Clean up baby with a regular wipe or wet a Bumma and clean up sensitive skin. Use another Bumma to thoroughly dry baby off. Re-diaper. If the cover Bumma gets soaked rinse it off and throw it in the wash. The payoff- a dry bum, no diaper rash, and no surprise squirts. Save money on diapers, and save by not having to buy powder, and ointment.

I love Bummas wipes. They come in many different colors, have one rough side, and one soft side, and THEY DON'T SHRINK! I have another set of wipes and after the first wash, they literally were HALF the size as when I first got them.
I like the two different sides of their wipes because it comes in very handy for the messy poo and yet soft for just a wet diaper. They're also great for being used as a regular wash cloth. I have used them to wipe the girls off after eating and they work great.
I've had their wipes since we switched to cloth, and they've held up GREAT! My only down fall is that the color has faded but that's expected when they're getting washed multiple times a week since March 2011.

I've only tried Bummas wipes and one other brand, but I have not looked for any others to try because I love these so much, they do their job, they stay in good condition over time, and they have multiple good uses if you choose.
A set of Bummas wipes retails for $15.00, comes in packs of ten, and five different sets of colors.
