My son Riley is a little over three months now and we are making the way thru our Diaper Shops and testing out all types of diapers.

We have been using the original style Fuzzi Bunz at night time with my son and hands down these have been working the best for him at night. He is in the size small in the original style. He is a chubby baby and is in the 98% in his weight so the original style small is getting to small for him. (actually the rise is what is really small).

Today, we just sorted out hundreds of the new Under the Sea (ocean) print and they looked so cute I had to try one out. These are the new style smalls and they run bigger than the original smalls.

I tried one on and it fit him PERFECT and even on the tightest snap setting. My little (big) guy I bet is almost 16 lbs and I figure that he will be able to be in the size small for quite some time. If you are considering purchasing Fuzzi Bunz don't size up at all. The sizing is very generous. For an average to slimmer baby my guess would be that you can probably use the size smalls to at least 22 lbs maybe slightly more. With this in mind a majority of babies will only need size small and medium.

Just some food for thought.

Musing about FuzziBunz sizing

This week my assistant (Karley) and I and my 3-month-old son went to the ABC show (All Baby and Child Show) in Las Vegas. It is the largest children's show in the country featuring thousands of manufacturers. We were also excited to go as there was over 30 cloth diaper manufacturer's attending.

I bet you are wondering if I cloth diapered when I was there. Yes, I did!

We stayed at a Marriott Residence Inn where we had access to a laundry facility. If you are planning on traveling and staying at a hotel you can call ahead and ask in they have "Guest Laundry Facilities". I decided to bring what I had in my stash: a Bumgenius Organic All in Ones, FuzziBunz, DryBees, and Wahmies.

I took two days worth and that seemed to be the right amount. One thing I would do differently would be to bring all pocket diapers. The all in one diapers are terrific however take a much,much longer time to dry in the drier.

I bet you are wondering if I used disposables at all? Yes, I am a bit embarrassed- owner of a cloth diaper business and I used disposables. You know it was a good thing and I will tell you why. Almost every single disposable diaper LEAKED!

I decided to use the disposables during our travel days. We left on a Monday morning to go to the airport and my son was hungry about half way there (45 min). I fed him and noticed a strong smell. I unbuttoned his one piece sleeper and there was a poop explosion right up his back. I went through more clothing changes when I used disposables. I also noticed that once my son peed I knew right away as the smell, just with a pee diaper, was so very strong. With the cloth diapers-honestly no smell.

Would I use cloth again traveling? Absolutely yes! But I would do 2 things different this time:
1) Bring all pocket cloth diapers; and
2) Use biodegradable flushable liners (to make cleaning up easier)
