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.
