We are in need of a new brand of cloth diapers. We are currently using Yucky Ducks that I found on eBay and they are awful. I have stuck with them from the beginning but am now sick of all the leaks. Any suggestions?

Why bamboo cloth diapers?

Bamboo thrives naturally without using any pesticides and fertilizers and is 100% biodegradable.

Bamboo has been praised as the natural green, Eco-friendly textile material of the 21st Century. Bamboo thrives naturally without the use of pesticides.

It is a natural cellulose fiber which is converted into yarns without the addition of chemicals, and is 100% biodegradable in soil by micro- organism and sunshine, causing no pollution to the environment.

The unique make-up of the 'Bamboo' fiber, whose cross section is filled with various micro-gaps and micro-holes gives it a moisture absorption rate three times that of Cotton.

Bamboo fiber is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti static.

Its natural antibiosis function keeps bacterium away so that it won't produce bad odors.

I am using BumGenius 3.0's too and I think that they are great.



They do get stinky though so you need to make sure that you wash them within a day or two of being soiled. You also need to make sure that you wash them in the type of suggested detergent. If they get stained, leave them out in the sun and the stain will bleach out in under an hour.

I like fuzzi bunz as well. I would try one or two before you buy a bunch though. Bum Genius didn't fit my LO at all, the rise is way too short for him (even the 1 size diaper). The FB is much more generous. I also like happy heiny one sized diapers. i liked the velcro on the BG that I tried but I don't like the velcro on the HH, it's too thicky and pokey. good luck!

Wow nobody mentioned g diapers > I don't know why> I love them > I use a cloth diaper tri-folded instead of the flushable inlay> and yes velcro after time can get full of lent but you can clean it off or put undies over the diaper to keep it from coming loose. (=

I have just ordered the Gdiapers. www.gdiapers.com They have disposable inserts that are not bad for the environment. You can even flush them. Really cute cloth covers!

We have 10 AIOs for days out (church, shopping, grandma's) and 20 or so prefolds with 6 covers for home. I wash every other day and have plenty.

We used bumGenius 2.0 for 9 months and they started falling apart at 6 months, so am very leary about getting any of the 3.0. The stitching around the velcro and along the back started coming out, the laundry tabs became useless and we started experiencing leaks with every diaper. We did follow washing instructions to a T.

As we change sizes at 1 yr, we are trying FuzziBunz, HappyHeiny's, and Thirsties.

I would suggest getting a few different brands to start to find out you like.  I made the mistake of getting all one kind of diaper right away without trying others and I hated the ones I got.  Also they have one size pocket diapers, like the Bum Genius 3.0 that adjusts as the baby grows so they are cheaper in the long run then the Fuzzi Bunz would be.  I have never tried the FB so they may work great, I just wanted to point that out because it sounds like you don't want to spend a lot.  Although one downfall to the BG is you will have to find a dealer in your country.  As for quanity of diapers, you will more than likely be doing laundry every other day with only 18, since you wlll be using 8-12 diapers a day.  Not sure if you have checked out  www.diaperswappers.com or www.diaperpin.com, but they are some good resources.  Hope this helps.


Quoting Andrea:

I am going to purchase Fuzzi Bunz to start, and I will see how I like them. They come in Small, Medium, and Large. Does anyone have any advice for how many Smalls I should get. They are expensive so I don't want to get too many. If I wash every third morning will 18 be enough? Too many? I think the smalls only last until 3 or 4 months, then we'll have to buy the mediums or switch brands if needed. Any advice would help me get started!

I love my Tiny Tush elite diapers. They are one size and use snaps so they hold up well in the wash. Check them out at www.nellsnaturalbaby.com

I use BG 3.0 and Happy Heinys. I did have some leaks with the BG 3.0 at first, but it resolved as soon as I opened the diaper up to the larger size. They are both great diapers. I have not had any problems with the velcro tabs either. At first I thought we would only use cloth diapers when we were at home, but they work so well, we use them all of the time now!!

I love, love, love the pocket diapers from Daiper Change. Her Minkee Diapers are wonderful for night time use. Check them out at http://hyenacart.com/DiaperChange/

These diapers use snaps and the snap combos are not complicated like Fuzzi bunz. I send these to day care because they are so easy to use and they work great!

BumGenius 3.0 are the best. I've tried many types and I love these. Never have a leak and they fit really well. Never have had an issue with the velcro- it holds up really well and there are washing tabs so they don't get stuck together. Fuzzi Buns were nice too, but they don't fit quite as well since they snap and they only come with one insert and are more expensive.

I love love love Kushies. I haven't had a leak yet. The only thing is they are a tad pricey.

I have been using BumGenius 3.0 for 4 months and love them. They are so easy and we rarely have leaks. BM blowouts only happen for us in disposables, never in BumGenius. On a couple the velcro tabs are wearing down, but it will be cheaper and easier for me to replace them myself (it's only a straight stitch). We never have diaper rash. I love that they grow with my daughter and I won't have to buy different ones. They come with a newborn liner and a regular one and you can double up at night or for long naps to reduce leaks. Also, you should change your cloth diapered baby more often than when using disposables. Usually every 2 to 3 hours depending on your child. I love that I can use bleach every once in awhile to get them really clean. We keep a dry bag in the bathroom, throw them in without pulling out the liners and they come out in the wash. So easy.

i love fuzzi bunz. they are the best for us, because of the snap closures... and ability to change which snaps you use at a given age. i tried the ones with velcro, and they were just ok... the buzzi bunz have been the best. i do also use more than one insert at a time, though...

I have about 8 different nappy brands but the itti bittis and the bumgenius 3.0 are by far the best. They both fit well, they are very absorbant, and just aesthetically pleasing to look at! Good luck. Oh I have been using cloth for about 20 mths.

Bum Genius 3.0 and Goodmama. Both work very well. Goodmama's need covers BG are all in one.

I should also mention that we only need 4 diaper covers because one will usually last all day without needing to be washed (unless we get a really messy diaper!) Good luck!

We use Nikky or Niji diaper covers with a folded cotton prefold inside. This is a great, easy system and fairly inexpensive. You may have to change your baby more often due to the 100% cotton prefold and not wanting it to sit next to baby's skin, but I just have a huge stack of prefolds and never run out :) Also, I am thinking of buying some polar fleece or wool and just making a little slip to put over the prefold (between baby's skin and prefold) that will wick moisture away from her skin. I think this will accomplish the task.
This is a very easy and inexpensive diapering, no pins or snappi's needed.

I've never had a problem with the velcro on the bum genius diapers. I've been using them for about 5 months and they still fasten great. They also have laundry tabs to fasten them to so they don't catch on anything in the wash.

I still highly recommend this diaper.

[deleted account]

We love our FuzziBunz, and since the mediums have worked for my youngest since she was a couple months old, and her 14 mo older brother, I don't really see why people spend the extra money on BumGenius ones with all the extra snaps to change sizes. but we all have to do what works for us.

I agree with PP's about the velcro closures. Especially if they can't stick down nearby for washing, then you can't keep them on the child and they come out of the wash all stuck together. what a mess. So glad I only had 2 of those! But they were so cute....

I've only had 2 AIO's too, and my problem with them is that they take FOREVER to dry! but, again, the Zebra print was too much to resist...

My favorites this time around are Swaddlebees pockets. They fit trim and rarely, if ever leak. Check out diaperswappers.com for info on mom favorites, and you can buy used to try different brands. That was my obsession when I first started cd'ing...trying one of everything!

I use Fuzzi Bunz and love them! The only time I found them to leak regularly was when I was moving to a new size and that only lasted for a week or so. They have snaps instead of velcro, which was a huge plus. They are easy to care for and haven't stained (even with the second child!). I recommend them to everyone looking to use cloth diapers.

I too love my bumGenius diapers and Thirsties and Fuzzy Bunz are great too...the only cloth diapers I have experienced leaks with are Bumwear, which had such good reviews...I was shocked, but have consistently leaked with them. Hope this helps. Beckey

I really like my BumGenius 3.0 but they are velcro and i haven't had any problems. I did not like my fuzzi bunz all that well because they always leaked just 2 lines by each leg.

Can anyone recommend what a new mom would need to order to get started? I am leaning toward all-in-one cloth diapers. I have heard good things about Fuzzi Bunz and BumGenius. I will be a first time mom in May but I live overseas. I will be visiting the USA at Christmas and need to buy my supplies then. Also, has anyone found it cheaper to order online versus buying in a store?

One thing I have learned about cloth diapers is to NEVER get ones with velcro closures. They do not stay closed and the velcro wears out after just a couple washes. Wish I had known this before we spent $100 on ALL velcro!!!

We use Fuzzi Bunz and LOVE them. They rarely leek unless he has a massive pee. At night we just add a second pad inside and it will last all night with no leaks. We also like that they have snaps instead of velcro so there is no fraying. Two thumbs up for Fuzzi Bunz.

I have heard a lot of great things about the BumGenius 3.0. I guess I'll save up and give them a try.

The ones we are using now claimed no cover was needed but my daughter (not a heavy wetter either) will pee once and then it leaks through the so-called built in cover. So we had to buy covers to go over the diapers that are supposed to not need them!!

How often do you all change your babies in the BumGenius diapers??

BumGenius all the way! They are the Cadillac of cloth diapers. A little more expensive than the average cloth diaper, but well worth the investment. They grow with your baby, so you don't need to buy more as the baby grows. I have been using them since my son was 4 months old, and he is now 9 months. It's also a very durable diaper and the great thing is you don't need to use plastic cover pants, because the liner is built right in. I wouldn't go back to any other brand. I highly recommend these ones.
