Last year, Heather Lent owner of Banana Peels Diapers and The Cloth Diaper Superstore filled us in on the top 10 sellers of 2009.  Due to requests by you, I asked Heather to tell us what the list looked like for 2010.

I can’t believe it’s been a year, WOW time sure does fly!

#1 – Pushing it’s way past the top diaper of last year is the bumGenius 4.0! Snap lovers rejoiced at the release of the 4.0. Now with the option of snaps or new-and-improved hook/loop closures. Also, a larger cut to accommodate larger babies and toddlers.  The 4.0 offers something for every cloth diapering family even new artist series prints!

#2 BumGenius Elemental Organic AIO – This diaper has remained my top favorite since it’s release. Easy, organic, one piece, love it!

#3 GroVia – formerly Gro Baby. My love affair with GroVia began this year. A great transition diaper for gDiaper users. This hybrid diaper offers both organic and disposable options and a great fit.

#4 Flip – As per my prediction last year, Flip has shot up to the top of the list. With 3 options: Stay-Dry,  Organic, Disposable. The stay-dry is the top seller although my personal favorite is the organic insert. I stuff an organic flip insert in a bumGenius 4.0 for nighttime.

#5 Fuzzi Bunz – My little guy was just in a hand me down FB from big sis today. I have FuzziBunz in my stash that are now 5.5 years old!

#6 Rumparooz – Poop scoop, internal gussets, original prints. A diaper unlike any other on the market!

#7 Thirsties Duo Wrap – Can’t go wrong with Thirsties! A tried and true favorite wrap over the years. Thirsties work with any diaper underneath. Thirsties introduced prints this year, Blackbird is a top seller and my favorite as well :)

#8 lil joey – These diapers hold a special place in my heart! I gush every time I tell a preggo mama about them. I welcomed the newest addition to our family in February and was so excited to have lil joeys as a part of my stash. They were by far the best fitting and easiest to use newborn diaper. I think I may have one bronzed for a keepsake :)

#9 Sustainablebabyish Bamboo Fleece Fitted aka “Magic Diaper” – my go to nighttime diaper. This diaper lives up to it’s nickname!

#10 Prefolds – Still a great basic diapering option and the backbone to many stashes. With the price of cotton on the rise, the price of prefolds has gone up a lot this year. Many families are opting for Flip inserts which are about the same price as prefolds.

Not a diaper but Rockin Green has been a huge seller this year. Rockin Green simplified my wash routine, to which I am forever grateful. The new Funk Rock wiped out the ammonia in my retired nighttime diapers and made them useable again! YAY!

It’s neat to see the changes over the last year.  No longer in the top 10 are Goodmama and Smartipants. Prefolds went from #1 to #10. Trends are constantly changing in the cloth diaper industry, no doubt next year will bring new names to the list.

All products listed can be found at Banana Peels Diapers.  Be sure and check them out!

    For some reason the four brands that I have tried on my 5 week old daughter all leave red marks on her legs. I have tried bum genius nb, grovia nb, lil joeys, and swaddlebees. Its like they are all too small even on the largest setting, even though she is only 7lbs. Do you have any suggestions?


  2. Katie Says:

    Glad you posted about the best selling diapers of 2010 but what I really want to know is where the heck is your baby??!! I keep thinking that any day there will be a picture of a new little bundly wearing impossibly cute and tiny cloth diapers. Your due date was the 23ish right? Are you still waiting? And I’m I the only one who is impatient? :) Thanks for your blog. I’ve recommeded it to several people (one being a stranger in my OB office who was taking about cloth diapering their first baby). Hope you have a wonderful new year!

    I just bought my first two GroVias and OMG they are amazing. Maybe my new favorite diaper. DH doesn’t like them though. He says the insert is awkward and looks like it would be uncomfy. So he doesn’t ever put that one on my LO.


  4. Sherry Says:

    Thanks for the great list. No matter how long you have been diapering it is always good to know other brands up and coming. BumGenius Elementals and Rumparooz are my two favs. Although I have my eye on some used Goodmamas!

    Great list, I always like to see what the best diapers are
    out there….. but there should be a poll taken for best WAHM
    diapers too! There are a lot of great diapers out there that are
    made by WAHMS. My favorite is of course Cutiepoops, but I also like
    Rainshine Designs.


  6. Kim Says:

    Over any of those I would chose the Ragababe AIO. No

    30+ yr old prefolds work wonderfully! My stepdad had about
    3 doz prefolds leftover from his son that he gave me. My little guy
    is 18 mos now and I have been using them since day one. I love the
    versatility of them…. I keep one laid out on the changing pad so
    I don’t get poop on the cover, I use them as wipes for extra large
    messes and my nighttime diaper is two prefolds, an organic Flip
    insert with a Flip cover. Every morning I was waking to a leaky
    diaper and wet sheets before this set up. Hope they’ll last for my
    baby’s babies :) I love the Rumparooz too…a little pricey for me
    but so squishy soft!

    Hey, I was wondering if you could do a post on your wash routine as well as how you strip your diapers. Explain each step you do, what you use and all that. I have a front loader and I’ve been adding extra water to my diapers but I hate doing that. I was wondering if you had a front loader and if you have to add water. If you could share all your wonderful steps that would be amazing! Thank you! :)

    I’m a FTM waiting out the last few weeks till my little one arrives, but I’ve got my stash ready and I have 5 of the items on the top 10 list! I even started the first wave of my stash from Banana Peels Diapers. From the list, I have lil Joey’s, BG 4.0’s (in snaps), a Fuzzi Bunz, Thirstie’s Dup Wraps, and prefolds. I’m happy to say that my prefolds were free. My mom & I were going through my old baby stuff in her attic and she pulled out a diaper pail with a TON of prefolds! They were the last installment from the diaper service she used when I was a baby. I’m assuming 30+ year old prefolds work as well as new ones… I guess we’ll see. :)

    Thanks for the list, and good to see the prefolds on there…=+)

    If Charlie Banana was more well know I guarantee they would be in the top spot. They knock the socks right off bG for quality and price. I would love for you to review them for Toots n’ Tots. I will email you with details. Great list by the way, what a good idea to see what sells well.
