Necessity is the mother of all invention. Necessity is what led Tereson Dupuy, founder and CEO of Mother of Eden, the parent company of FuzziBunz® diapers, to invent the FuzziBunz® pocket diapering system. Tereson invented FuzziBunz® pocket diapers in 1999 in response to her four-month old son, Eden's, chronic diaper rash. The disposable diapers contained chemicals that inflamed her son's diaper rash. The cloth diapers on the market were clunky, old-fashioned, hard to clean and did not keep her son dry and rash free. She faced the challenge of inventing a product that would keep her baby dry, be easy to clean and care for, prevent leaks as good as or better than disposables, and still be more economical than disposables and other cloth diaper options. She was looking for a real diapering option to fit her modern lifestyle.
After an exhaustive search, Tereson developed her own diapering system by hand-stitching diapers made from fleece in her home. The diapers she invented worked and she decided to share her unique invention with mothers around the world who were also disenchanted with the available diapering options. Within one year, Mother of Eden and the FuzziBunz® diaper empire were born.
Mother of Eden first introduced the new fleece pocket diaper product to a community of mothers on the Internet who were already using cloth diapers. One customer turned into two, two into four and the customer base continued to multiply from that point on. On June 17, 2003, Tereson was officially and legally granted a patent for her product. FuzziBunz® are the only fleece pocket diaper to hold a patent and was the first to introduce this diapering concept to the diapering community and it has changed the way people view diapering their babies.
FuzziBunz® diapers can be purchased through small work-at-home-mom Internet boutiques and small physical boutiques.
