FuzziBunz Perfect Size Diaper Giveaway Sponsored by FluffyRump (CLOSED 7/26) U.S./Canada & Review of XS

Fuzzibunz Perfect Size XS 1

I’ve had my medium FuzziBunz Perfect Size Diaper for about 10 months now, and I still love it. Naturally, I wanted to add the XS/newborn size to my newborn cloth diaper stash for the new baby! Though I purchased this diaper myself, FluffyRump is generously sponsoring a giveaway for a perfect size diaper in XS, S, M or L!


FluffyRump is a small (but growing!) cloth diaper retailer, run by WAHM Stefanie and her husband Kevin. They carry cloth diapers, accessories and other eco-friendly items that the owners themselves have used and loved, including LifeFactory glass baby bottles! They have reasonable shipping rates (there’s a calculator right in the shopping cart, and they refund any shipping overcharge.) They offer reward points on every purchase too! Stefanie is very friendly and you can contact her anytime with questions you have!

The XS is estimated to fit 4-12 lbs (preemie-4 months), the small 7-18 lbs (0-8 months), medium 15-30 lbs (6-26 months) and large 25-45 lbs (12+ months.) My son was about 18.5 pounds at 16 months when we bought our medium FB perfect size. He is still rather petite at 23.5ish lbs at 25 months. The medium FB is definitely much larger than other medium diapers we were using, but it fit him well then and fits him well now with tons of room to grow. I doubt we will ever need to go to larges in the FuzziBunz! I don’t have a small though (ahem, I need to get one, don’t I?) so I don’t know how they fit vs. the XS. If you have bigger newborns, you may very well be able to use the smalls and mediums and that’s it!

It has easy snap closures, leg and rear elastic, and a rear pocket opening.

Just like the medium, the XS came with a microfiber insert that was perfectly sized to fit in the diaper.

Here is the XS measured folded and stretched:

Now here is my “newborn model” wearing it. I’ve also pictured him wearing a newborn disposable so you can see how the fit compares.

Our medium FuzziBunz Perfect Size is a “go-to” diaper for us when we’re going to be out and about. It fits well, despite it’s more generous size, and absorbs well. I expect the same performance from the XS, and we’ll find out in December when I get to test the fit & absorbency on a newborn. So, watch for an updated review then! Read about how this worked for our newborn.

Questions don’t have to be cloth diaper related, just email maria at with “Mailbox Mondays” in the subject, or fill out my contact form for readers, which you will always be able to find on my Contact Page.

Someone asks:

What is up with all the newborn cloth diaper reviews? You don’t even have a newborn. Have you gone totally off the deep end?

Fake, made up reader.

I’ve already posted several newborn cloth diaper reviews and I have about 6 more coming up in the next month. I realize that I look like I’ve completely lost my marbles and that I’m in dire need of a cloth diaper intervention.

Newborn Diapers

Well, I know you guys are pretty sharp, so you may have already figured out that we are expecting another baby. Our newest cloth diaper model is about half baked, and due in December.

Um, so that’s my news. If there are any pregnancy or newborn related products you’ve been dying to see reviewed or given away, let me know! 😀

Rumparooz Lil Joey Newborn Cloth Diaper Review

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 1 2 diapers

Rumparooz Lil Joeys are eeny-teeny, snap closure AIO newborn diapers. They are sold in 2-packs for $29.95. Most retailers sell them in packs of 2 of the same color, but Diaper Junction (affiliate link) allows you to choose two different colors.

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 2 in pkg

It was hard to choose from 12 colors and 6 prints, but I chose lazy lime and platinum.

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 3 frontRumparooz Lil Joeys 4 side
Rumparooz Lil Joeys 5 back

These are some of the tiniest newborn diapers I have seen, plus they have an umbilical cord snap down. I’d expect them to fit all but the smallest babies. They are estimated to fit from preemie/4 lbs up to 6 months/12 lbs.

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 6 vs os xsRumparooz Lil Joeys 7 vs os xs side

They are smaller than even the smallest setting of the Rumparooz one-size diapers.

The umbilical cord snap down can of course be used unsnapped as well!

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 10 soft inner with gussetsRumparooz Lil Joeys 11 narrow to fit tiny babies

The inner is super soft, with the same gussets the one-size has. It’s much narrower to fit tiny babies without added bulk.

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 12 sewn in soaker thickRumparooz Lil Joeys 13 thickness of diaper folded

The sewn in soaker does make the diaper a bit on the fluffy side!

Here are the measurements (folded and stretched with the snap down snapped and unsnapped):

It even fits around his tiny chicken legs.

Rumparooz Lil Joeys 27 fits newborn chicken legs

Naturally, my model isn’t a heavy wetter, so I can’t speak on the absorbency. I actually think this would be a great diaper for the newborn baby photo ops. There are so many colors available and they are just so.darn.cute. At under $15 each, they’re also not the most expensive newborn diapers out there. See this on my newborn.
