SoftBums is the husband and wife team of Sarah and Brian Van Bogart.
We're based in Minnesota and have been selling the unique Echo diapering system,
formerly called PerfectFit, since 2008.
Sarah Van Bogart, founder, co-owner, and designer for SoftBums, has been sewing
and designing diapers for over 10 years. She brings her unique experience
as a mother of four, La Leche League leader and even training as a midwife to
her products. She works hard to provide the best products she possibly
can, because she knows how frustrating it is to have a diaper that fits badly,
leaks or wears out after just a few months.
The Slide˛Size system is the result of years of designs and prototypes in
Sarah's quest to create the perfect one-size-fits-all diaper. It all
started when one of Sarah's friends bought a whole supply of small size diapers
for their newborn son. They loved the diapers, but before long he had
outgrown them all! They were so frustrated that they decided not to buy
more diapers in a larger size and started using disposables instead. Sarah
knew there had to be a better way and started working on her first one-size
design. This was in 2003, and hundreds of prototypes and patterns later,
the SoftBums one-size-fits-all diaper was born!
As awesome as the original one-size SoftBums diaper was, it was made even
better with adjustable leg elastic. It was Sarah's husband Brian, with his
technical background, who helped inspire the adjustable leg design now known as
Slide˛Size. With Slide˛Size, babies with super skinny legs as well as
babies with super chubby legs get to wear the same diaper and have a nice trim
fit with no leaks! Pregnant moms can finally buy a diaper before baby is
born and know that SoftBums will actually fit their tiny 6 lb newborn and last
until potty training no matter what size or shape Baby is!
SoftBums now sells the Echo diaper with Slide˛Size on
www.softbums.com and through a growing
list of stores
in the US and Canada. Check one out now and discover why we think this is
the best-fitting diaper in the world!
Because Sarah and Brian are committed to quality, SoftBums is committed to quality, and
you can see that quality in everything we make. We're so confident in that
quality, in fact, that we offer a 1 year limited warranty on everything we make.
