The Rumparooz were born in 2006, shortly after the birth of Autumn, Chad and Julie's second daughter. They quickly learned that she was highly sensitive to disposable diapers and could not wear them even for a few hours. They became discouraged after lengthy research and sampling of many different brands of cloth diapers. Julie and Chad could not find a cloth diaper that had both the fit and function that they liked. Each diaper change additionally became a full outfit change as the cloth diapers they used could not contain the frequent messes, similar to disposables. Julie started brainstorming, problem solving and inventing leak prevention technology in her own ideas for diaper patterns.
