Welcome to a new Meme done by yours truly. I love using Cloth Diapers and have been Cloth Diapering for over a year now. Through the last year I’ve come up with tons of diapers that I absolutely LOVE and other’s I’m not so hip about. Every mom who starts Cloth Diapering wants to know what the best products are out there, so we see out other mom’s who have been through it to help us find our way!
Enter Favorite Fluff Fridays! I will be reviewing & suggesting some of my favorite Fluff products!! Here we go! :)
A while back when I went on my search for Snap Diapers instead of Aplix I came across Fuzzi Bunz. Don’t get me wrong it’s not like I’d never heard of them. When I first heard of them I thought to myself, Snaps??!? really? Why would I want to try to snap diapers onto an already squiggly, wiggly, baby.
When Kaitlynn figured out how to get her Aplix diapers undone & they started to show wear I decided it was time for snaps. First let me tell you, Snaps are SOOO much easier than you think they might be. Even with a squiggly baby you can get them done!
I contacted Fuzzi Bunz to see if they would be interested in having me do a review. Fuzzi Bunz was nice enough to send me 4 Perfect Size Diaper (1 size Medium & 3 Petite size) and 2 One Size Diaper. When the package arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at how soft they were on the inside. I also noticed they had a VERY large pocket opening for the insert. However they do not have snaps for the insert to be used smaller, but do come with a Newborn insert (on the one size). Not to mention the fact that they have SOO many colors to choose from as well as a few cute prints!
Fuzzi Bunz is new though to the One Size Diaper system. For years they have had their Perfect Size Diaper(sized diapers), but recently came out with the one size. Their One Size diaper is unique in the fact that there are no rise snaps. Instead there is elastic on the inside with buttons to size (think kids jeans with the elastic waist you can cinch up.) At first I thought that would be a problem. After trial and error I was able to find the fitting that fit the best for Kaitlynn. Would I recommend them to mom’s who have more than one child in diapers? Probably not. If you just like to grab a diaper and then size it, this is not the way to go. But if you have different diapers for each child then GO FOR IT!!!
The Perfect Size diapers are a sized diaper that you can buy in many different sizes as your child grows out of them. At first I didn’t think this would be a “smart” way to go about Cloth Diapering, but after receiving these diapers I might actually try it. We received one diaper in the Medium Size about 6 months ago when Kaitlynn was barely 20 pounds. She now only weighs about 25 pounds, but can still wear this diaper 6 months later people!!
We also received three of the petite diapers as well. When I told them about Kaitlynn’s measurements and fear of her being so tall/super skinny they recommended the Petite’s. I’m not exactly fond of these diapers just because they don’t fit Kaitlynn well. I think they would be better for an older child who weighs slightly more, and may be too tall for the Perfect Size Diapers.
Overall I LOVE these diapers!!! The Perfect Size diaper surprised me at how well they fit, and how long they'll last in just one size! I also liked the One size diaper for just having one baby. They have no snaps down the front, and so they make for a fluffier cuter picture taking diaper!
