Fuzzi Bunz One Size Pocket Diaper Review

The Fuzzi Bunz One Size Pocket Diapers are the first diapers that I purchased. I really like them, they seem quite absorbant.  My son is a more heavy wetter, depending on how much he has had to drink. But we can go anywhere from 3-5+ hours in one of these diapers (single stuffed) or all night in a double stuffed.  They have stained up a bit, but I'm sure that's just because we have had some diarrhea issues the last 2 months.  The weight range is from 7-35lbs per manufacturer instructions. I would say this is pretty accurate, although I didn't use these when he was a small baby.  He is now about 27 lbs and they fit well.  We have all the elastics set on a 2-3 (the legs and back ones) and he uses the loosest to next to loosest snap setting. So we can still let the elastic out and have plenty more wear left.   This diaper fits well around his chunky thighs.  It is narrower in crotch width than the BumGenius, but it fits well between his legs.  I love snaps!!  I'm a snap diaper mom, the velcro is alright, depending on the situations of when putting it on, but snaps are my fav. Plus, your baby will most likely not be able to unsnap the snaps as soon as undoing velcro.  I like the pocket, because you can add more inserts for the needed absorbancy.  The elastic curls out of the "holes" that it fits into, but only when washed, which is pretty typical for elastic that is not sewn down.  So when stuffing your diapers just have to push it back it. It's no big deal.  They are quite trim. Overall I like my Fuzzi Bunz.  They are a good pocket diaper.  I would give them a 4.5 out of 5 rating.

Cloth Diapering

I am a cloth diapering mom with a 15 month old son. I LOVE cloth diapers. My goal here is to help educate mom's on the benefits of cloth diapers and how to use them. As well as all the other mommy and baby items that are out there. I am going to be trying to review things for you, so that you don't have to make mistakes like lots of people and get something that may not end up working for you. Be sure to check back often and see what's up.
