Fuzzibunz Cloth Diaper Review

Meet the Inventor

Tereson Dupuy is the founder and CEO of Mother of Eden and the inventor and patent holder for FuzziBunz® pocket-style cloth reusable diapers. Tereson is often called the Mother of the Modern Cloth Diaper.

This determined mother-of-three invented FuzziBunz® diapers in January 1999 because her four-month old son, Eden, was suffering from chronic diaper rash. She tried every cloth and disposable diapering system on the market to no avail. After an exhaustive search, Tereson knew there had to be a better option and that’s when she invented the modern cloth diapers, now known as FuzziBunz®. Today, FuzziBunz® diapers are found in hundreds of online and in-store boutiques and have been used by millions of babies around the world! Tereson is not only a mom, but also an entrepreneur and has received numerous recognitions for her invention. In 2006, Tereson was named Entrepreneur of the Year by the Stevie Awards for Women in Business, an organization referred to as the business world’s Oscars. Tereson has been featured in the New York Times, CNBC’s The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, and The Sundance Channel’s Big Ideas for a Small Planet.

Tereson’s invention has also received recognition from leading media sources, including Parents, Pregnancy, babytalk, American Baby, Time, The Today Show, In Style and Pregnancy & Newborn. It has been awards seals from PTPA Media and iParenting Media.

Tereson is a New Orleans native. Prior to founding Mother Eden, Tereson worked as a victims advocate for the Rape Crisis Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. Tereson lives in Broussard, Louisiana with her three children, Sarah, Eden (who she named the company after), and Bennett.

I had contacted Fuzzibunz in the past, via their blogger form, but when their new line of Diaper Talk diapers came out, I reached out to them again and was allowed to review their FuzziBunz® Diaper Talk™ One Size Elite Pocket Diaper in cotton candy pink!

For a limited time only, FuzziBunz® is bringing you a cloth diaper line that is fun, functional and oh-so-funky and fashionable too. The FuzziBunz® Diaper Talk™ line is digitally printed (not screen printed) on our One Size Elite cloth diapers. These fun designs can be seen printed on cool background colors with contrasting colored snaps to boot—See the colors! These designs will not peel or fade and will bring a splash of color and interest to the rest of the well loved FuzziBunz® color collection.

As I'm sure you've all noticed, I try to find and review anything I can cupcakes! I've been obsessed with cupcakes since Madison was born in late 2007, and while it was a hunt then, cupcakes are everywhere now, so it allows me to fully indulge in the amazingness of cupcakes!

I was so happy that Fuzzibunz sent me this particular diaper because my husband wasn't willing to let me buy it. I had never tried a Fuzzibunz and my husband was skeptical of the printed on decals and how they will really hold up over time. That being said, I love this diaper!

Could use cross over tabs for my petite little girl

Double stuffed, SO TRIM!!!

Double stuffed

I'll be honest and say that I did NOT think this diaper was going to fit my 26 pound 2 1/2 year old child AT ALL. Even though it's a ONE SIZE diaper, it looked small and I thought maybe they somehow sent me a fitted diaper instead.

Well, looks can be deceiving because as you can tell from the pictures, this diaper fits McKenzie GREAT! I like how soft it is, hugs her well, leaves no marks, she looks adorable in it, and it holds well for a heavy wetter like my little girl. I use this diaper double stuffed since I've had it because it can last her longer than other diapers and its just become a habit to put both inserts in at the same time. I love that it comes with two inserts, especially the small, because I know this will be a favorite diaper to put baby in once she arrives and having this diaper fitted to a small child, the small insert will get a lot of use. I do wish that it wasn't so hard to stuff though. The insert seems to get stuck on the inside of the diaper and my hand is just as wide as the pocket so I do have a a little trouble. I even asked my husband to try to stuff it just to see if he had the same issue and he did. I'm sure in time, I'll figure out an easier way and the insert will go right in the pocket.

The fact that Fuzzibunz can be sized up or down to better fit your child is something I've never seen and a feature that I feel is almost a necessity. This is where I've always been a little concerned about my ONE SIZE diapers fitting such a small baby when they can fit my 26 pound so well with still plenty of room to grow. Because this diaper has the elastic to size the legs, once baby is big enough to fit in it, I will no longer use this diaper for McKenzie because I have a feeling that Fuzzibunz will be one of baby's first cloth diapers to fit besides the ONE newborn diaper we have.

At just $19.95 you can't go wrong with a Fuzzibunz diaper! Most diapers are averaging $15-$20 but none have the adjustable features like Fuzzibunz, as well as each diaper coming with two inserts, extra elastic, and a one year replacement warranty. Whether it's winning or buying, everyone should have at least ONE Fuzzibunx in their stash because one is all it takes to want more! I know I do and will get more in the future!

The Diaper Talk™ diapers are for a limited time only, retail for $21.95, and come in four different prints, with each diaper being sold in multiple colors.

I clothed diapered my son for six months. These diaper covers were just becoming vogue. I love the advances they have made. These look awesome!

I LOVE Fuzzibunz!! I didnt even know they had prints now!! Fantastic! I would wash them inside to protect the decal.

Tiffany said...

We like FBs! I might have to get a print.. Oh and I noticed the ones made in China have tight pockets but the ones made in Turkey are easier to stuff.

Michelle, we used Fuzzi Bunz with my Princess when she first came home. I thought they were great. Thank you for sharing more products with us. They are so cute!

Happy New Year!

They're super stretchy and the softest diaper I've felt. Nothing scratchy touching the baby, and since they stretch and fit comfortably snug no matter what, you never have a pile of left over diapers that don't fit him anymore, when they go up to a new size. They fit till the end, and they overlap each other in size rage so there are no weird periods of growth when he's an 'in-between' size.
