If you've been reading for a while (and if you haven't and you're just here to snag you some free Fuzzi Bunz...git it, girl!) you already know this, but I don't like to pass up a chance to
What? Pioneers totally had front loading washers and running water.
Okay, where am I going with this............? Oh yes! Fuzzi Bunz!
The other day Colleen, a fellow Michigander and small-business-ownin' mama, asked me if I'd like to try some FuzziBunz and then give some away to you guys and I was all "Do bears poop in the woods?" (which isn't some kind of diaper code phrase, I swear). Then the FuzziBunz magically appeared in our mailbox and I tried them and, well, I kind of love them.
See, because I'm a cheapskate, we normally use pre-folds (those are like the cotton rectangles you imagine when someone says "cloth diapers) inside of a waterproof diaper cover. That is the cheapest way to cloth diaper and it's been fine for seven months. But then I used the Fuzzi Bunz and guess what?
1) less bulky (not a huge deal for me but may be for some)
2) easy to put on because the absorbent thing is INSIDE the diaper and not laying on top (nice, but not again, not huge deal for me personally)
and...here's where the laundry room thing comes in...wait for it...
3) super fast drying on the indoor drying rack (HUGE DEAL FOR ME OH MY GOSH GIVE ME A HUNDRED OF THESE)
Seriously, these things dry so fast it's crazy. Crazy awesome. Super awesomely crazy. Faster than the Bumgenius inserts, which I've also tried. Oh, and the soft inside lining somehow magically stays dry against the baby's bum while the absorbent insert thing gets soggy. How is that possible? I do not know. Science is hard.
Alright, let's talk about the options available. You can get the one-size-fits-all adjustable Elites, which are great for new babies who are growing really fast or petite nuggets without enormous thighs.
Mary, who is a chunk-a-munk and has enormous thighs, fits better in the standard Fuzzi Bunz, which come sized. At 7 months old, she weighs 21 lbs and has inherited my super long butt (sorry, baby) so I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to squeeze her into the Elites. The size medium, on the other hand, fits her GREAT.
Just check out this size comparison:
Anyway, I pretty much love these diapers and as fast as I can wash them I use them again. If you want a pocket diaper, get these from Colleen's site Fuzzi Bunz Seconds Factory because a) her prices are great because she stocks seconds and b) she offers a buy-5-get-1-free deal. Free! I love free!
Ready to try and win you some? The good news is that you can choose your own color and size from what's in stock at her shop and the better news is that I'll be drawing TWO winners. Twice as likely to win! Yay!
