Are you ready for reusable diapers? No one is suggesting you ditch disposable diapers altogether, but switching to reusable for, say, when baby is playing at home certainly reduces waste. And something like a FuzziBunz®, above, is so ridiculously soft you can’t help but want it against baby’s skin. You wash the diapers in the washing machine; shockingly, they don’t hold stains ($18-$20/each; fuzzibunz.com)

Before my daughter was born, I approached this subject with friends with young children and was advised that cloth diapers are not a good idea. They’re messy, leak and are, according to some sources, not any better for the environment than disposables. I was also told that babies get diaper rash more frequently with cloth diapers, they’re bulky and less comfortable for baby, and they require extra time and energy, especially if you wash them yourself. Basically, friends told us we’d be a little crazy to sign up for cloth diapering along with new parenting.
Having considered all of these points, I just couldn’t stand the thought of my daughter’s waste wrapped in plastic in a landfill for the next three hundred years.
Therefore, we took the gamble and invested in cloth diapers. After much research, we chose FuzziBunz®. They offer beautiful, functional diapers in a rainbow of colors. When the gorgeous bouquet arrived in the mail I was so excited. I tucked them all into a big basket and showed a friend the arc of pretty little diapers. She rolled her eyes and said, “Oh yeah. I’m sure that’s exactly how it’s going to be.”
I have to say, it IS just how it’s been. I have LOVED cloth diapering, and 17 months later, I’ve never purchased a disposable for out little girl.
The white microfleece that touches her skin is incredibly soft. Forget about pins; these diapers are fashioned so that they grow with baby, featuring a multitude of snaps. And the color choice (they now offer some prints, as well) is so sweet; they negate the need for diaper covers.
They’re not cheap, (they generally run about $18/diaper and $5 per insert) but they’ve paid for themselves dozens of times over. Their re-sell value is terrific (check out eBay), and I love that she’s so comfortable. As far as washing, I find it to be a non-issue. I’m doing so much laundry, anyway, I hardly notice the difference.
So, I’ve become a cloth fan. And some of the friends who advised us against them have had their second. Guess what? They’re using FuzziBunz®.
So tell us.

Diapering should not be fraught with angst — there are enough parenting decisions that are. But there are so many choices now that even the most Zen parent can get ready to toss her wipes.
Cloth versus disposable has been debated since the first throw-away, but a resusable diaper, FuzziBunz®, may convert even the most ardent anti-cloth advocate. These diapers, developed by a mother of three whose second child was allergic to the chemicals in disposables, offers an alternative that is convenient, low-cost, and keeps kids dry. When Tereson Dupuy fist put her son in cloth diapers, his diaper was always wet; when she came up with her design, he stayed dry and his rash cleared up, she maintains. The diaper has an inner core made of polyester fleece; moisture draws through to an absorbent core without chemicals. FuzziBunz®, which has been on the market for six years, just came out with cute prints, including gingham and trains. $17.95 includes the diaper & insert; Tereson estimates that the average user will save over $1700 by using her product.
Huggies has two new super premium diapers: Huggies Supreme Gentle Care and Huggies Supreme Natural Fit. The diapers, for newborn-size 6, replace Huggies Supreme, and offer a more customized fit.
There are two mothers who have more radical approaches to diapering — or the lack thereof:
- For when you’re past desperation level, Teri Crane has written Potty Training Your Child in Just One Day: Proven Secrets of the Potty Pro (Simon & Schuster, $11.95). Crane asserts that even the most stubborn child can be trained in one day, with . . . wait for it . . . a potty party. This three-step process starts by giving your child a doll that wets, getting a child to use the potty, then a party with a few friends and relatives to celebrate. She includes many themes, with decorations and treats to motivate a reluctant child.
- Or you could end the debate by going the diaper-free route. Christine Gross-Loh, who writes in the new The Diaper-Free Baby: The Natural Toilet Training Alternative (Regan Books, $15.95) that she found diaper-free advocates extreme, eventually embraces the movement and offers a balanced look at this controversial early (as in from birth) toilet training method.

An excerpt from Pregnancy Buyer’s Guide, December 2006
We asked real moms nationwide to recommend their must-have gear during their baby’s first yer. We know you’ll find their advice as invaluable as we did!
“FuzziBunz® cloth diapers make cloth diapering unbelievably easy. Not only are they already cut to shape, but they have snaps that help the diaper fit perfectly. I have never felt anything so soft in my life. I’d like my own pair of FuzziBunz®!”
–Rebecca Redstone, Almeda, California

Okay, you know you’re in trouble when your husband starts sending you links to products like FuzziBunz® microfleece re-usable diapers. “But I saw them in Wired,” he protests, “And they fit with your whole earth-friendly, reduce, reuse, recycle ethic.” Whatever, man. You’re sending me links about diapers.
That said, FuzziBuns® do look pretty snappy (pun intended). They come with durable snaps that let you adjust the size to fit your baby’s legs and waist. They’re made with microfleece, which according to the site, “gently touches your baby’s skin, pulling away moisture and keeping your baby rash-free, dry, and comfortable.” The outside layer is waterproof. And they come with a “patented, pocket-style opening” that acts as, well, a pocket, so you can stuff it with inserts or towels to increase the diapers’ absorbency.
According to groups like the Institute for Lifecycle Environmental Assessment, the jury’s still out on whether cloth diapers are better for the environment than disposables. They use more energy to clean, but take less energy to produce and create a lot less solid waste. And of course there are the parents who suggest that if less is more, none is best – and therefore advocate going the diaper-less route.
At Really Natural, we think it’s up to you as a parent to decide what’s right for you and your child. But if you’re thinking about going the cloth or re-usable diaper route, FuzziBunz® deserves a top to bottom look.

What: FuzziBunz® Diapers
Why: While the thought of cloth diapers both intrigues and irks you, you just can’t imagine slaving away like your mom and grandma did to keep your baby in fresh diapers. You’re also concerned about leaking, comfort, pins and rashes and any other sacrifices you might have to make in order to stop contributing to the earth’s landfills. With Tereson Dupuy’s ingenius design, you don’t have to make a single one.
FuzziBunz® diapers are absorbent, waterproof, pin-free and extremely comfortable. The fleece that touches baby’s bottom is both incredibly soft and stays dry as it whisks away moisture to the highly-absorbent insert of the pocketed diaper. Sure they’re a little expensive, but they’re so worth it; they pay for themselves several times over in just a matter of months. And don’t even worry about washing. Simply wash them in a regular cycle and extra rinse on hot, and they’re as good as new. No soaking or bleaching required!
