FuzziBunz recently introduced a new diaper called the FuzziBunz Hemp. The FuzziBunz Hemp comes in one-size, vanilla color cloth diaper and includes small and medium hemp inserts with each diaper. The inserts are made from 55% natural hemp and 45% certified organic cotton. (The cotton adds flexibility to the insert).
While hemp sounds great and you’ve probably heard a lot about this wonder fabric, you may be interested in knowing exactly how hemp is beneficial to your modern cloth diapering experience. Let’s discuss:
- First, hemp makes your diapering experience ultra-green. Hemp requires no pesticides to farm and it doesn’t deplete soil like cotton. Using cloth diapers means you’re being green already, but adding hemp to the mix super-sizes this “eco-friendly” experience.
- Second, hemp has natural anti-microbial properties, which, some say, may aid in deterring mold, bacteria and fungus.
- Third, hemp makes a great absorbing agent and can hold a good amount of liquid. Most moms with heavy wetters enjoy hemp inserts, especially at night, so their baby and their baby’s bedding stays dry!
- Forth, hemp is a breathable fabric and durable by nature. Since it’s used in your baby’s diaper, this makes for a more positive and comfortable diapering experience for your baby.
If you haven’t given hemp a try, now might be a good time to do so. What have you got to lose?
