Can I Mix & Match Cloth Diaper Inserts? (Diaper Advice)

Can I mix and match my cloth diaper inserts?

Cloth diaper inserts can make or break a diapering experience.  With that in mind, people frequently want to know if it’s okay to mix and match your cloth diaper inserts.

Like most bits of cloth diaper advice, it depends.Can I Mix & Match Cloth Diaper Inserts (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Cloth Diaper Inserts Size

It’s important to use cloth diaper inserts that fit.  I would never use an original FuzziBunz minky insert in a BumGenius diaper.  The minky inserts are just far too narrow.  The size difference is so great that it would be like throwing a hot dog down a hallway.  Because of the gap, the diaper would leak.  Badly.  Likewise, I wouldn’t try stuffing a BumGenius insert in an original FuzziBunz Elite, either.  The BumGenius diaper is so very wide that there’s no way it would fit comfortably.  You’d be forcing it in and your baby would end up with a weird, probably uncomfortable wrinkle under the bum.

Cloth Diaper Makers and Patent Protection

It’s been all over the cloth diaper world: Jenn Labit of Cotton Babies (maker of BumGenius, Flip, and Econobum) is determined to protect her company’s patents.  Some cloth diaper makers have decided that they will not sit back and allow their designs to be stolen while other companies take in the profit.  Tereson Dupuy of FuzziBunz has been fighting this battle for years.

Take a look at these two diapers and tell me that the print is not a knockoff. And that’s only the beginning.

I’ve seen some comments floating around due to these cloth diaper makers’ refusal to have others take credit for their work. [Read more…]

Infant Cloth Diapers for 36 Hours Straight!

I’ve been using cloth diapers from pretty much the beginning.  Mind you, I’ve never exclusively cloth diapered, as there are times that Huggies brand diapers are just so much more convenient.  However, for the last 36 hours, I have successfully used only infant cloth diapers.  36 straight hours in infant cloth diapers was actually a lot easier than I had expected it to be.

I didn’t use any one particular type of cloth diapers during this time period.  I have GroVia diapers, BumGenius 4.0 diapers, a BumGenius Elemental, and a ton of FuzziBunz cloth diapers.  I have to say, it was an adventure, and I’m quite proud of myself for managing for this long. [Read more…]

Overnight Cloth Diaper Options

Everyone has different preferences for overnight cloth diaper options.  There are a variety of factors to take into consideration: how heavy of a wetter one is dealing with, what’s user friendly, what’s available (a lot of us prefer to buy local in my community), and what’s cost effective.  Some popular overnight cloth diaper options were rejected in my house because my husband either couldn’t figure it out or just didn’t like them for whatever reason.

Recently, I asked my local cloth diaper community what they chose for their overnight cloth diaper options.  Some of them were awesome enough to share pictures.
