One of the most popular and widely known cloth diapering companies is FuzziBunz, makers of pocket diapers. They began out of necessity in 1998 when founder Tereson Thomas needed something to help out her three-moth old son's chronic diaper rash. Her response was to hand sew a diaper that was easy to clean, prevented leaks, was economical, and would keep her baby dry. Eleven years later, FuzziBunz is the top-rated cloth diaper company according to DiaperPin.com and is worth multi-millions of dollars.
What makes them so special? FuzziBunz offers a range of diapers including One Size and Perfect Size pocket diapers. They offer all of the regular sizes as well as a range including XS, Petite, and XL to fit your special needs or hard to fit child. Their diapers come in a wide range of PUL fabrics on the outside (colors and prints!) with a white microfleece on the inside to keep baby dry. There's a pocket in the back of the diaper that allows you to adjust the absorbency as needed.
FuzziBunz sent me a size medium red diaper to try out. We've used FuzziBunz previously, but found that the diaper they sent me is a newer and better design. The snaps on it allow for good adjustment, and we only have leaking problems if the fleece part isn't tucked in right. The diaper runs about $17.95 and is said (by the company) to be able to withstand over three years' worth of wear and tear, and also to have the ability for easy elastic replacement if need be. It's not a chunky diaper on your baby either, which is definitely a nice thing when you're trying to pull a pair of pants over their bums.
When I received the email from FuzziBunz yesterday telling me that they want to give one of my readers a One Sized Diaper in the winner's choice of color, I got onto their website and started reading about this One Size diaper...I want one! It apparently comes in all of the great colors and prints and will fit babies from 7-35 lbs. The thing that gets me is how they've made it to be adjustable by using elastic instead of snaps. Here's what they say about the diaper:
"The FuzziBunz® ONE SIZE diaper is adjustable through adjustable elastic, NOT snap downs on the front of the diaper like most one size diapers on the market today. Similar to adjustable waistbands for children and maternity wear, the waist and legs have been made customizable through a button / elastic adjustment system. So instead of 3 length settings, you can set to 8+ very customizable sizes. Instead of NO waist settings, you have up to 4+. So you have a SUPER adjustable diaper without an excess of snaps. It may take a bit of "adjusting" to get to the right size, but when you find the right fit, you set it and forget it."
