A Bright Bumms Change Pad is a waterproof, machine washable and dryable diaper change pad. These Canadian hand made change pads have two unique sides. The quilted side is created from a variety of fun cotton fabrics and the water proof side is made from ProCare fabric. ProCare is a durable, waterproof, washable fabric, which is an environmentally friendly choice.
Here’s the Bright Bumms story in founder Jordi’s own words:
I created Bright Bumms out of the need for a
change pad that was a more environmentally friendly product to the
disposable paper change pads and a cleaner option to the wipe off only
poly-vinyl ones. I was frustrated with the non-washable change pads
because they looked dirty and I wanted the option to wash or wipe. So I
began a search for a washable material that was also waterproof and I
found ProCare fabric. I then looked for some colourful fabrics that I could quilt to make fun and colourful pads.
As your child gets older you can use the change pads as seat pads(keep
the mess contained). Use them on a cold or wet bench and on wet or damp
grass. Keep everyones bumms warm and dry!
