Today’s post is written by my IRL friend Sarah. She blogs at Life With The Seefeldts.
I’m a first time mom and my girl is almost one year old. I’m relatively new to cloth diapering but have gotten to try out a few different kinds.
Here is a little about my experience with Fuzzibunz One-Size diapers.
I’ve had Fuzzibunz One-Size in my diaper rotation for a couple of months now. Fuzzibunz One-Size are pocket diapers, so they are waterproof on the outside and you don’t need a diaper cover over them (that was important for me). One-Size means you can use them from birth until potty-training.
What I like:
• Super-soft fleece against my baby’s bottom
• Snaps so she doesn’t pull off her diaper!
• Thick, absorbent inserts
• Adjustable leg-holes so you can get a unique fit
• Really cute colors!
• With two inserts the diaper gets bulky (but not really more than other pocket diapers I’ve tried)
• I have had leaking before when I didn’t get a good tight fit
• Seem to be a bit narrower than other diapers
Here’s a great thing, though: I can totally trust it as a night-time diaper! I stuff both inserts in and add another insert (Thirsties or bumgenius) or a prefold and my baby is good to go for 12-13 hours. She gets milk right before bed (around 7:15) and then nurses again about 5am and goes back to sleep and I don’t change her until 7-8am. No leaking!
My girl has a fluffy tummy and thick, chunky thighs. That’s why this diaper seems a bit narrower on her than others that seem more generous in the bum. I think the leaks I got were from not getting it snapped tight (she moves around during diaper changes) and then the narrow fit allowing leaks when she moves. (Maybe that wouldn’t be a problem with skinny babies) It’s not my go-to diaper during the day but I use it when I know I can change her in a couple of hours. I definitely use it at night.
Sarah, I will add that I am so glad I’m not the only one who has to wrestle my child or have an older child sit on Sterling during diaper changes. Very annoying. Where Kate has the chunky thighs Sterling has nothin’. Both have problems. I get leaks often because diapers don’t go tight enough.
Thank you for reviewing the Fuzzi Bunz One Size!
