I received the Bugs Life Pt. 2 Collection from Bambino Mio in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. I only promote what I truly love!
Since starting our cloth diapering journey a little over 4 years ago, I’ve certainly seen my share of fun and beautiful prints and diaper styles. I’ve probably tried at least 20 different brands of cloth diapers, and I’ve used multiple types of inserts to stuff them with. When Bambino Mio reached out to me to get a first-hand glimpse at their latest collection that had not yet released to the public, I was incredibly intrigued. I had heard of Bambino Mio, but it was a brand I had never tried before. When these beautiful diapers you see below made their way to my door from across the pond (they’re the most widely used cloth diaper in the UK,) I knew right away I was in for quite a few “firsts” with Bambino Mio!
The first thing that I noticed about this brand new Bugs Life Pt. 2 collection is that it’s exactly what is says – a true collection. The notion of a diaper “collection” was completely new to me. When I opened up these diapers and saw how cohesive, yet uniquely different they all were, it really did feel like I was watching a mini episode of Project Runway. I’ve seen diaper companies release multiple styles and prints at one time, but never a collection where all of the prints have common elements to tie them together. In this particular collection, a rainbow ties each print to the next, and it’s done in such a way that is absolutely charming!
Their hook and loop closures were also new to me, as all of the other diapers I own use snap closures. The hook and loop (or Velcro) type of closure is, in my opinion, the most similar to a standard disposable diaper when it comes to fastening. This makes the diaper changing process much faster, and there are two little fold back laundry tabs in place to secure the hook and loops when washing so that they do not scratch the other diapers when in the wash. I found the quality of the hook and loops to be outstanding, and the diaper itself has the perfect amount of elasticity to stretch perfectly over my baby’s waist to create a secure and snug fit without digging into her skin.
These diapers are available in two styles: Miosolo All-in-One and Miosoft Diaper Covers. We received this collection in the All-in-one variety, meaning that the insert is built into the diaper so that your diaper and insert are never separated. This makes the laundering process very easy, and the insert has a quilted feature that helps lock in wetness and prevents leaks. I have never seen a quilted insert before, and I think the idea of it is absolutely genius! The insert also has a pull out tab system that makes removing the insert from the pocket without actually touching the insert a breeze!
We also received a pack of Mioboost Diaper boosters, which are additional liners or inserts that can be added to the diaper for extra absorbency. This is probably my favorite “first” – I have never seen inserts with prints on them! This is definitely a trend that I hope other diaper companies begin to catch on to! Plus, these boosters have that lovely quilted feature that helps lock moisture in, and I absolutely love it!

The newly released prints in the Bugs Life Pt. 2 lineup are Rainbow Rays, Sunshine Stripes, Snail Surprise and Honeybee Hive. During my daughter’s 1st birthday party last month (which happened to be bumblebee themed,) Honeybee Hive made a very special appearance, and everyone at the party raved at it’s cuteness. It quickly became our favorite print in the entire collection of buzz-worthy prints!
