Okay, so the title is actually a little bit misleading. I’ve talked before about how I got started with cloth diapers and what my first ones were. Plus, you guys probably get it by now that I really like to make my own cloth diaper and that I’m trying to branch in to making even more for my girls like toys and clothing. So really I’m talking about the very first “brand” cloth diaper that I got.
I frequented Diaper Swappers at one point to try to get my hands on some gently used diapers for a fraction of the cost to really get a feel for what I liked before putting a ton of money into building a stash. One lady that I bought a mixed box of inserts from tossed in a Fuzzibunz cloth diaper.
The elastic was already a bit relaxed, (hence why it was tossed in for free) yet it still managed to work for Natalia at 9 months and we used it as an overnight choice. The diaper was a size large and as funny as you might find it, I actually criss-crossed the wings to snap on the waist snaps on the opposite hip. It compensated for the relaxed elastic and smaller waist of my daughter.
I recently tried to replace the elastic on this diaper and after successfully replacing the back elastic I found myself really fighting to get to the leg elastic because it is attached to the diaper along the whole length of the elastic, rather than tacked at the ends like I do in mine. After trying for a couple hours to get out one leg, I gave up and tossed it. I know, I know, send me to cloth diaper jail, but I did it.
I’ve recently been thinking about trying a newer style Fuzzibunz diaper but due to my recent experience with prefolds and covers, as well as using those covers with my fitted, I’m not sure right now if I can spend the $20 on a pocket diaper. Than again, I have a hard time justifying buying pocket diapers no matter the price these days since Jake hates trying to stuff the inserts inside the pocket.
