This week my daughter finally outgrew her small sized FuzziBunz pocket diapers. These six diapers were the beginning of my stash, and gifts from family and friends at my baby shower. I think I got a lot of “mileage” out of them. At 13 months, my daughter is a skinny 18.5 pounds. So these six FuzziBunz are retired…until June or July when the next baby arrives.
I still have a colorful stash of pocket diapers, as you can see from the picture below. I have FuzziBunz One Size and medium Perfect Size diapers. I have bumGenius 4.0 diapers with snaps, and Rumparooz G2 One Size Diapers. I also have a Doopsy, a Knickernappies, a Kissaluvs, and a Happy Heinys. And of course, I have dozens of prefolds!
The six diapers that are now safely tucked away awaiting baby #2’s arrival were nearly enough for a whole day of cloth diapering. In their absence we will be returning to prefolds and Flip One Size diaper covers. The majority of our diaper stash which we purchased consists of prefolds and covers. After all, we started using cloth diapers to save money, and stocking up on prefolds and covers is probably the most economical way to do cloth diapers!
I don’t mind using prefolds. They are not quite as easy and convenient as pocket diapers, but there is something nice about their simplicity. My prefolds are a little “crunchy” because I don’t have a dryer. Sometimes I just like the soft polar fleece in my pocket diapers. But prefolds have been around for a long time – they are definitely tried and true!
How about you? What kind of diapers make up the majority of your stash? Were they gifts, or purchased by you? What factors influenced your decision to go with that type of diaper?
