When we decided to switch to cloth diapers, I tried to stick with buying neutral colors. I did get a few girly colors (purple!) at first, but mostly wanted to build a stash that would work for our future children regardless of their sex. Well, with all the cute prints and colors out there I kind of failed at keeping our collection neutral. When I received opportunities to review diapers I often picked out girly looking ones because, well, I wasn’t paying cash. It felt easier to justify (even though I was paying with my time).
Now that we’re expecting a boy, I’ve been looking over the fluff we have and thinking “uh oh, I need to get some more!”
Though really my mind is going “Yes! An excuse to get fluffy mail!”
I do have a reasonable amount of covers and shells he could wear without an issue, but there are way more for just Rissa than I imagined since I wasn’t keeping the bigger picture in mind. Still, the hundreds we’ve spent is nothing compared to the thousands we would have spent on each kid for disposables! I’m just going to have to remember to save the non-girly ones for baby boy and try to only diaper Rissa in her girly prints.
For now, she gets to enjoy them all though… like the brand new FuzziBunz Elite one size pocket diaper we received. I’ve bought a few FuzziBunz in the past, but I was curious about what differences (if any) there were with the elite.
I picked out the Light It Up Blue color that Rissa can wear for now and her brother can enjoy when he gets here. (Have you noticed that little girls get all the luck – they can wear pretty much ANY color or print without an issue?) The first thing I noticed was the different inserts. These are… minky. SO soft. I just wanted to sit there and pet the inserts they felt so nice. I’ve never heard of minky inserts before only minky covers. My other four FuzziBunz have microfiber inserts.
Besides being super soft, the minky inserts are supposed to be more absorbent and odor resistant. So far they have done quite well absorption-wise. The sizing isn’t any different that I could tell. They still offer replacement elastic, which is great, and the adjustable rise via the elastic band. The lining seemed softer than I remember, but that might just be because the others are worn and pilling after nearly 2 years of usage. The only other change I noticed was the Lifetime Warranty. That’s a great testament to their customer service and how invested they are in their product.
So now that I’ve added in a few more neutral prints and various shades of blue… I’m wondering what else to get for the little guy. Do you have any color or print suggestions for me?
Disclosure: We received the above mentioned reusable diaper to review. No other compensation was received. Sharing my thoughts on my biggest addiction – fluff!
