SoftBums is the husband and wife team of Sarah and Brian Van Bogart. They'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!
Because Sarah and Brian are committed to quality, SoftBums is committed to quality, and you can see that quality in everything they make. They're so confident in that quality, in fact, that they offer a 1 year limited warranty on everything they make.
