Well, it’s been almost a month now of using Fuzzi Bunz on the munchkin and they are working out very well. We’ve noticed that the hemp inserts are definitely better than the micro-terry at soaking up large quantities of liquid. On top of that, the hemp inserts are less bulky. We got our hemp inserts from JamTots at the same time we bought our diapers from them.
We still use a disposable diaper about once a day but it’s for two sort of odd reasons:
- We bought a pack of size 1 diapers that we want to use up
- The disposables are a little less bulky between the legs and allow the little one to stretch out a bit more.
Once the disposables are gone we probably won’t buy any more unless we’re going somewhere and can’t wash the Fuzzi Bunz. At Christmas we’re heading to the in-laws and it might just be easier to use disposables for the drive down and back.
Anyways, we have 17 small diapers now and that is enough to last 2 days, most of the time. Most sites recommend 24 diapers so you don’t have to do laundry “every day”. As it stands, we’re doing laundry every day because we’re changing little spitty-uppy a fair bit. It doesn’t really matter if we have to do diapers too. ;) Of course, everything depends on the child as some need to be changed more often to keep them calm.
