FuzziBunz Perfect Size Diaper Review & Giveaway (CLOSED 10/9)

When I was expecting my daughter (she’s 5 1/2 now) I did a little research and thought I’d want to try FuzziBunz Perfect size diapers.  6 years ago, there just wasn’t the wealth of information that there is now (or if there was, I didn’t know where to find it!) So, I thought this was an appropriate review/giveaway to start my one year cloth-iversary event!

I knew I’d probably need around 25 in each size however, I (wrongly) thought I would need to buy XS, S, M, L and XL diapers which is no savings over disposables.  That, combined with the cost of washing (we had city water with outrageous out of city water/sewer rates) and already feeling overwhelmed with the idea of new motherhood, closed the door on that!

I’m sure you’ve already guessed that I’m kicking myself now!  Their site says: “Did you know that most babies only go through two sizes of FuzziBunz® from birth to potty training—Smalls from 0-6 months and Mediums from 6-36 months?”  I could swear that wasn’t there six years ago, ha ha!  I know now that my daughter probably would have needed just Small and Medium, perhaps some XS as well.    I could still be using them for my son now!

My son was about 14 pounds when we started cloth diapering at 4 months.  I have tiny little peanut kids, so at 16 months now, he’s only about 18.5 lbs.  I have mostly one-size diapers because I thought it was more cost effective that way, but my son is still in the same size medium settings he wore at 4 months old (though I probably could have used small then if I wanted to.)

(I do have a FuzziBunz one size diaper, but I don’t care as much for the fit when it’s on a smaller setting.)

At first glance, the perfect size look very similar to the one size.

They have a PUL outer, snap closures with the diagonal pattern (though this one doesn’t have the third hip snap that creates the befuddling triangular snap pattern.)

They have a microfleece inner to keep baby’s skin dry, and a pocket opening for the microfiber inserts.

The insert for the perfect size is wider than the one size; the diaper is wider as well.

This brings me to the perfect size shocker.  As soon as I took it out of the package, it seemed huge!  I checked at least a dozen times to make sure it really was a medium, and then I started wondering if I’d received a mis-labeled diaper.  It is far larger than any other medium, larger than the largest setting of the one-size diaper, huge!

FuzziBunz O/S, Largest Setting

Note: In the picture above, I have the Fuzzibunz O/S on the outermost holes of elastic.  According to Fuzzibunz, the one size “large” setting is on hole #2, which is smaller than what I have in the picture.  As pictured, the elastic is nearly fully extended and there is very little stretch to it (not sure why the extra holes are there.)  The elastic is intended to tuck into the holes; I only left it out to show that it was fully extended and still smaller than the perfect size medium.

No, really.  It’s big!  That makes me think that FuzziBunz perfect Size would be an awesome choice for bigger or special needs children.  XS is estimated to fit 4-12 lbs (preemie to 4 months), Small 7-18 lbs or 0-8 months (I think my son could probably still be wearing a small), Medium 15-30 lbs or 6-36 months, Large 25-45 lbs or 12+ months.  They also have specialty sizes for Petite Toddlers, and Extra Large.



There it is folded and stretched.  For comparison, here’s a Bumgenius 3.0, medium:

Finally, A Bumgenius 4.0 on the large setting, stretched, and a FuzziBunz one size on the largest setting, stretched.

I promise, I’m not trying to make this entire post about how OMG big this thing is!

It fit really well, despite being big, and didn’t leak.  It was trim, as far as cloth diapers go as well.  I do wish FuzziBunz had an aplix closure option though.  P.S. I realize there are a lot of weird picture issues in this post.  I tried blogger, I tried livewriter, and I spent hours on this.  If I had tried again, I would have smashed my computer to smithereens, so you get what you get, LOL.
