Here’s a business where the “bottom” line is really all that matters. WAFB’s Allen Tumey has found a diaper factory in Iberia parish.
This thriving New Iberia enterprise started because five years ago a mother had a problem.
“After I had my second child, Eden, he had a rash that would not go away,” says Tereson Dupuy. “It would literally make me cry.”
No lotion, powder or diaper would help, so Tereson came up with her own solution, and that solution led to this factory. Here 20 full-time employees make “FuzziBunz®.”
“This is fleece material, polar fleece like a jacket would be made out of. Feel that, how soft. When a baby wets on here, this doesn’t retain moisture so what we have is a super absorbent insert,” says Tereson. “This is made out of micro-fiber material. It’s a very progressive new-age type material. There’s a lot of people using them these days. This goes in the pocket, and what that does is make them very clean. Take them out, and it’s very easy to clean, very easy to dry.”
FuzziBunz® are sold worldwide in much the same manner as Tupperware — by a company that’s part business, part outreach, teaching parenting values.
Tereson says, “We think that people deserve a better quality of life. That’s kind of what drove me to create the diapers. I felt that my baby needed something better than what was already out there.”
