bio-soft liners $6 per roll

They make using cloth diapers even easier! Bio-soft liners are flushable diaper liners that make clean-up a breeze – this product is the perfect compromise between convenience and cloth diapers. Bio-soft liners absorb the solid waste - and then you simply discard the soiled liner in the toilet and flush away the mess. They are non-irritating and ever so soft and comfortable against baby's sensitive skin.

Our new Bio-soft liners are made of a non woven material with no binder, and will biodegrade very quickly (within 8 days in a sewage treatment system or 20 days in a septic tank). They are 100% viscose rayon, a cellulosic fiber derived from natural sources, and are made to Bummi’s specifications in England.

100 sheets per roll. Each sheet is approximately 12 X 5 inches.

Please note that the flushing of any biodegradable diaper liner may cause blockage in old or damaged drains and in sensitive septic systems. Please discard pee soaked liners in the garbage and to let the soiled liners soak a few minutes in the toilet before flushing just so that they absorb water and break down a bit before they are released into the system.

Sisters Day has come and gone - WOW!
June 2nd marked one year that Haydee has been home with us. Many of you supported us through the adoption process, which began long before Buzzie Bee Diapers opened in October 2005. Most adoptive families celebrate the adoption day in one way or another. We called it Sisters Day as it’s the day Haydee and Liefe officially became sisters. We spent the weekend with family, looked over Haydee’s scrapbook, dreamed and schemed about our next trip to Guatemala, and ate ice cream cake - a reminder of all the ice cream Liefe ate at Casa Grande, the Guatemalan hotel where we stayed, waiting three weeks for Haydee’s visa to come through.
In celebration of sisters and babies everywhere, we’re pleased to extend a 20% discount on all retail purchases throughout the month of June.

dates of note:
A reminder about holidays - diaper service continues without interruption on all holidays (except Christmas and Thanksgiving). If you plan to be away over the summer holidays, please let is know. We’ll do what we can to accommodate you with a vacation credit.
Deliveries on June 18 & 19 will happen mid morning rather than super early in the morning. This is because Broo (who helps Buzzie Bee by being Monday delivery driver, Tuesday childcare provider, and round-the-clock wonderful husband - who at one point long long ago thought cloth diapers were gross) will be on Vinalhaven participating in a graphic design seminar. We’ve enlisted the help of babysitters but couldn’t find one willing to be here at 4AM...
