Do You Have a Bum Placement Obsession?
Posted by Crunchy Nana on October 17, 2014.
Before the bumGenius limited-edition madness really gained momentum, I had never heard of the term "bum placement". When my kids were little, bum placement meant, "Sit down on your bottom and listen to Mom. Right now!"
However, in the market for used bumGenius limited edition prints, bum placement gets a lot of attention. Certain diapers command a premium in resale when it comes to the arrangement of wording and/or images on the back of the diaper.
One of the most coveted bumGenius prints, Jules, has even spawned its own terminology in cloth diapering circles. "Trifecta bum" refers to a Jules diaper where the squid, the anchor, and the submarine are all visible on the diaper's backside.
The newest bumGenius limited edition print, Martin, is a gorgeous black and white design with just one main element, a lion, which is alternated right-side-up and upside-down.
Martin should please those bum-placement-obsessed mamas, since at least one part of the design will be right-side up whether you're looking at the front or the back of the diaper. In addition, the back should always have the majority of the lion visible (at least on the diapers we've checked - but no two will be exactly alike!)
If you're a little OCD like I am, I understand how you can be a little obsessed over the placement on your beautiful new diaper! Just leave me a note in the order comments and I'll do my best to find the placement you're looking for. (Flips are the exception - they come folded up inside a package, so we can't check on them).
