I have finally jumped on the Fuzzi Bunz bandwagon. When I was still pregnant with Eloise I was trying to get some idea of what cloth diapering system I would need to set up that would be economical but also practical. I got my hands on four Fuzzi Bunz and so far they are, by far, my most favorite thing to use! Of course, Miss Eloise pees about a gallon an hour, so with only four Fuzzi Bunz, she's not in them for very long. I had grand illusions of folding recieving blankets in to dipes, like I did with Iris, but I just don't have the luxury of time to get in to it. I decided to buy a dozen Infant sized Indian Pre-folds (well, I ordered a dozen, they only sent me 11, grrrr). I really like them, actually. Last night I figured out that the stack of fitteds I have is just barely starting to fit Eloise, so I am using those, as well. I still haven't figured out the best way to keep her dry, though. I don't use cloth for night or for outings, yet, because I don't want to have to deal with changing her during those times (if I don't have to). Right now I could change her once an hour and it still wouldn't be enough! I think I need to think layers, with fleece next to her skin, but I can't imagine how many layers that would actually take. She also sleeps so long during the day, I just hate that she's stewing in pee the whole time . . . sigh. I guess it must not bother her, as she sleeps for up to four-five hours in the day, but it bothers ME!
So, I just ordered six more Fuzzi Bunz, but in the next size up since she won't be in smalls for too much longer. I think I might end up buying a bunch more, since they have such a high resale value, and sell everything else I've got. Diapering with Fuzzi Bunz is practically as easy as paper diapers, except for the laundry factor. Hopefully I purchased enough doublers to stuff them up nice and plump to absorb all the pee!
I should get a picture of Eloise and her gigantic cloth booty. For the short time Iris was in cloth Matt and I would joke that she had a "J. Lo. booty". She really did!
