NEW IBERIA, La., – New parents enter a whirlwind of choices when baby arrives – everything from whether the baby should sleep in the family bed to what kind of stroller they should buy. But one up-and-coming choice that many new parents consider today is whether to use cloth or disposable diapers.
According to Tereson Dupuy, the inventor of FuzziBunz® reusable diapers, cloth diaper usage is gaining significant momentum. “As shown by the steady increase in demand for our diapers and the amount of real-world and easy to use options, more and more moms are trying their hands at cloth diapering and making it a part of their child rearing practices.”
And it’s not just suburban moms who are turning to cloth diapers. Tinseltown is taking on the trend too. Anna Belknap, star of CBS’s CSI-NY, is a known FuzziBunz® fan, as are country music star, Brad Paisley, and his wife, actress Kimberly Williams. Madonna was recently spotted changing baby David’s cloth diaper and Dave Matthews and Maggie Gyllenhaal have been widely reported as a cloth diaper users as well.
MaryLenore Arsenault, celebrity publicist and owner of BopStarBaby, which provides gift baskets to new celebrity parents, says, “Hollywood’s elite new parents are always looking for the next best trend. Environmental friendly items, like FuzziBunz®, are definitely a hot item found in many of today’s A-lister’s baby nurseries. I wouldn’t be surprised if more and more celebrities made their cloth diaper duties publicly known.”
With environmental issues at a peak, it’s no wonder that today’s new parents are looking for greener options. According to statistics from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in 1960, there was almost no diaper waste. But by 1970, the EPA reports approximately 350,000 tons of diaper waste and by 2005, 3.6 million tons of diaper waste annually. In another EPA report, disposable diapers are documented as the third largest waste item in today’s landfills – a significant number given they are only used by a small percentage of the population.
While many parents can still opt for old-fashioned fold and pin diapers, many are turning to the newest modern option, pocket diapers, which include snaps or Velcro and allow for absorbency customization. And while disposable diapers come in one color, reusable diapers come in a plethora of colors and print choices, ensuring that today’s baby is sporting style from top to bottom.
Dupuy adds, “New moms are always telling me that they are pleasantly surprised at how easy FuzziBunz® diapers are to use and wash. Cloth diapering is nothing to be scared of – not any more with today’s modern options.”

NEW IBERIA, La. – It’s set to be a joyous holiday season for Hollywood’s newest parents and their little bundles of joy. Suri Cruise, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt and Moses Martin, along with 17 other famous babies, are receiving the gift of comfort and style this holiday season thanks to Mother of Eden, the makers of the FuzziBunz® Stay Dry Diapering System. As part of FuzziBunz®’s exclusive diaper category placement in the specialty celebrity gift baskets created by BopStarBaby, each celebrity baby will receive a supply of 12 diapers festively arranged in forest green, red and white for babies celebrating Christmas and in blue and white for babies celebrating Chanukah.
“Offering FuzziBunz® to Hollywood’s newest arrivals enables us to spread the word to a larger audience about doing what’s best for baby and what’s best for Mother Earth. Even today’s celebrities are looking for ways to contribute in a positive way to society and FuzziBunz® are an easy way to keep diapers out of landfills and babies happy and clean,” said Tereson Dupuy, CEO of Mother of Eden and inventor of FuzziBunz®.
FuzziBunz® are a reusable diaper made of three layers using the latest technology in textiles. The first layer is an ultra-soft polar fleece that gently touches baby’s delicate skin and wicks away moisture, keeping baby dry and rash-free. The second layer is a waterproof outer shell to keep messes contained, and the third layer is a pocket opening between the two layers where a parent can add a super-absorbent micro-terry insert to absorb moisture.
“Every new mom – no matter if you’re Angelina Jolie or Jane Smith – wants to make this world a better place for her children. Using FuzziBunz® allows a mom to make a stylish statement about the importance of using reusable versus disposable baby products. And best of all, FuzziBunz® are nothing like the cloth diapers of yesteryear because they are much more appealing, practical, convenient and easy to care for and they are way more stylish than prefolds and other cloth alternatives. In other words, they are actually appealing to today’s conscientious new moms,” commented Dupuy.
Twenty of Hollywood’s most elite expanded families have received the gift baskets this December, including Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise, Brooke Shields, Angela Basset, Matt Damon, Russell Crowe, Mark Walberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Greg Kinnear, Gwen Stefani, Nadia Comaneci, Britney Spears, Mark Paul Gosselaar, Jamie Dean, Jann Wenner and Matt Nye, Kobe Bryant, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Christie Turlington and Ed Burns, and Rachel Weisz.
