BumGenius began very small - with $100 worth of product in a tiny green milkcrate stored in a shelf in the kitchen of Jimmy & Jenn Labit. It grew from there to a bookshelf, then a closet, then a bedroom, then a basement and finally, in 2005, the business expanded into a small commercial space. They opened a retail store in 2006 and in 2007 moved their shipping center into a larger warehouse set to double in size in 2008. Their focus from 2002 through 2005 was retail through Cotton Babies. In 2005, they launched the bumGenius product line. This product has provided the primary fuel for the growth of their company. Today, Cotton Babies employs many people in the St. Louis area who work in the warehouse shipping orders, in the retail store helping our local customers, in the offices providing administrative support or in their homes sewing products.
They are proud of the way their company has grown and the positive impact that they are having on families worldwide. Five years ago, Cotton Babies began providing enough income to feed just their family. Today, Cotton Babies provides income that puts good food on literally hundreds of tables worldwide. They consider each and every staff member, distributor, retailer and customer part of their extended Cotton Babies team. With the help of their world-wide team, bumGenius has become one of the best selling diapers in the world.
