Fuzzi Bunz - Page 2

post #21 of 48
Fuzzi Bunz are my favorite diaper for both of children. I have never had a wicking or leaking problem and my kids sleep 12 hours straight at night. I have been using the saem ones for almost 2 years on two kids and they have held up extremely well.

My kids have sensitive skin and get rashes easily unless they have microfleece to wick urine away immediately after peeing. This is another reason why I prefer Fuzzi Bunz. They also have a lifetime warranty on the snaps of all 1st quality diapers.

We love our Fuzzibunz. They are a great dipe. They were the first dipes we bought, and we find them really useful at night and when we go out. We have the newest ones, with 6 snaps at the waist (3 on each side) and eight on the legs (4 on each side). It makes for a good fit, because our babe has a skinny waist and chunky thighs. I like how you can customize the fit and absorbency. We stuff with one Joey-bunz during the day, and usually add a UBCPF at night for extra absorbency. He sleeps for about 8-12 hours. We haven't had any leaks day or night with the Fuzzibunz. The fleece has begun to pill on some of our dipes, but not all of them. I'm not sure why, because they all get used the same amount (I'm very careful of that). It doesn't seem to affect the performance, it's just a bit of a nuisance to sometimes have to remove a pill that has stuck itself to ds's bum. On the whole, FBs are a fantastic dipe. DH loves them. And, they're really easy to travel with.

I use them at night or on long day trips. They ate good for heavy loads and iff you don't want them so bulky just put in one insert and they are almost disposable size.

Bad Experiance with FB outlet on ebay

I waited more than 6 weeks and still didn;t get the FB 2nd I won on ebay. Whereas I did eventually get a refund, I was told several stores, lied to, and ignored in the process -- something I didn't expect from them. I like FB, but getting this kind of treatment alters my whole perspective on them. I am glad I got a refund, as I never did get the dipe, but i also wanted to warm mammas to as for DC or spring for insurance as one of the tales I was told was that their mail was being stolen.

I bought 4 of these on the TP, two with rounded inner tabs in bright colors and two with pointed inner tabs in more pastel type colors. (I'm really not familiar with all the different kinds of FB). I got them to use at night on my super-soaking toddler. There was like a week-long learning curve as to getting a good fit and how many liners to put in but now I like them a lot. I put 4 motherease liners in them. It seems to help at night to have it really stuffed so it fits better. I think the large may still be just a tad too big for him, but with 4 liners we haven't had leaks for 4 nights or so and he wakes up a lot drier than when he was in fitteds. They're definitely cute...

I just recently acquired 2 FB, both in the newer style ,I suppose with four leg snaps and maybe 6 or 8 waist snaps. One in a small for my 3 month old, and one in a lg for my 2 yr old... they are fab. This is the FIRST time I have EVER successfully nightime diped her in two yrs....She can pee straight through a lanolized Aristocrat, but i put 2 jb's and one MOE terry insert and she can go 12 hrs and be dry inside and out, WE love them

Fuzzi Bunz are a staple in our home, and we are very happy with them. They are our no-fail nighttime diaper, and they're so easy to use, that my in-laws don't mind using them. The big pockets are easy to stuff and unstuff, and I love how the fleece layer keeps my daughter feeling dry.

With five different sizes, it's easy to find a size that fits your baby. My daughter was in mediums from 6 months to 18 months, and they always fit her, even as she grew and her body shape changed; and now that she is outgrowing the rise in the mediums, the petite toddler size fits great.

I plan to continue using Fuzzi Bunz until my daughter potty learns.

Mixed review on FB's for us. At first I loved them, been using them for about a year and 1/2. I had the style w/ the cream colored fleece, this style was my favorite . It kept my ds dry, no more 5-6 diaper,clothing changes a day!

However I've had a lot of problems w/ seconds, purchased from retailers & ebay. Tags coming off, snaps coming off. They used to replace them when problems happened. Now the warrantly is much shorter 60-90days?

They did work well for us up until about a month ago. My ds had a growth spurt and they are too low in the front now. They are constantly sagging.
I just purchased a few new ones and I HATE the new thicker white fleece. The urine repelled off the diaper & down his leg. I'm returning them.

I'm so sad they switched the fleece

FB don't work for us

I was really looking forward to trying out these rather pricey (I'd say overpriced) diapers. Most of the reviews I read were extremely positive, so I expected a great diaper. Sadly, we've had nothing but problems with them.

I initially purchased a package of six diapers with inserts. After one/two washings, three diapers had already lost their snaps. I'd heard very good things about the MOE return policy, but WOW, I couldn't believe how difficult it was to get replacement diapers. I had to write 3 e-mails, call them on the phone, and finally return the defective diapers through the retailer. When the replacements finally arrived, they were all different sizes (although they were supposedly all size Large). Despite this fact, I managed to get them to fit using different snap-settings for each diaper. I agree with pp that the new fleece is awful and repels urine.

Next problem was the leaking. There is no way I can take DD out in these diapers for more than an hour at a time, nor can I use them overnight. They leak constantly. I don't know why I've had so much trouble! Other people rave about leak-free fuzzi-bunz experiences. Our experience is exactly the opposite, even though I've tried many combinations and types of inserts with these diapers. On the other hand, we also use Mother-ease one size with air-flow covers and have never had a leak in over 20 months of diapering. Not one leak! Also, the Fuzzi-bunz look trashed after only a quarter of the usage our ME receive. The ME dipes look as good as new! And they were half the price of FB!

A few positives:

- nice trim fit under clothes
- easy to use and quick to wash/dry
- they can slip on and off like a training pant (now that DD is potty learning, this is a definite bonus)

Overall, these diapers just don't work for us. I wish I'd tried one out before wasting money on a package of six. I can't understand why they seem to work for everyone else, but not for us.

We have about 3 doz. fuzzy bunz ranging in size from preemie to med. and 2 pt. toddler. They are a bit bulky and ours leaked often even with changing DS at least every 2 hours. I have found that DS is a very heavy wetter and does much better in a diaper wrap and a prefold. (bumkins are awsome and much cheaper.)
post #33 of 48
Mixed review here. I really wanted to like FB, mainly because they are cheaper than a lot of others I'm trying (before price increase). I only have one diaper - a recent version, I guess, with the pointed ends. I'm not totally happy with the fit, and the bottom snaps have come undone on their own a couple of times (since he's only worn the diaper 2-3 times, that seems like a lot to me). I expect the diaper to stay snapped during normal toddler activity! He hasn't pooped in it yet, but the diaper held up fine during 4 hours or so of naptime/afternoon wear (varied inserts).
post #34 of 48
A great buy . . . if you stick to the trading post or other mom-centered sites (NOT ebay) to buy them. Even new, the package deals look great.

I have 6 Large Round tab rainbow serged (2002) and 8-10 large pointy tab colors. I always use hemp Joey bunz or hemp wonderfulls with them. These almost never leaked as long as laundered and stuffed properly.
sometimes these can get a little skunky-smelling, in which case you need to strip them-- wash on hot with no detergent until there are no bubbles in the water.

the only problem we've had with them is that my mom can't snap things easily due to arthritis. So we had a few Happy Heinys (aplix closure) for when she babysat.

If you aren't enjoying your FB, adjust your inserts. If they still don't work for you, they have great resale value.
post #35 of 48
I'm VERY surprised to find that people have had leaks. I can't believe how much I love our fuzzibunz! DS is in mediums and I have never had a leak. He sleeps in them overnight with a MOE doubler and it works grea! They're soooo soft, the colors are awesome and they seem to have a very comfortable fit. A+ in this house!

Irregular Poor Quiality Control

Purchased Date - Nov 18, 2006
My new Fuzzi Bunz are irregular. The "red" dp the leg wholes are so big the pea just flows out the sides, it is at least a 1 inch gap. The white diaper fits perfectly, the orange dp one leg whole is bigger then the other leg??? For the amount of money I spent I just can't believe the quality control is so horrible. :

Moreover I called the store were I purchased the FB, Baby Belle Bottoms. The store did admit that this has been an on going problem with FB for years however they told me that I had to contact the manufacture directly per FB. The store was not “allowed” to handle defective items that were not new...sounds like BS to me.

I read some great FB reviews on this forum before I bought them. Out of my order half of the FB I purchased are irregular and leak because of it.

Fuzzi Buns is going to send me new DP to replace the irregulars. I have to pay for shipping which just stinks in my book. I just wanted to say that my fuzzi buns that fit work great. If you do go with Fuzzi Buns find out how the store will handle any irregular size issues.

Another mixed review...
Overall I love fuzzi bunz, they are my favorite diaper. We've had a few leaks, but nothing too major. The thing I hate right now is that XS's are too small in the legs on the largest setting, yet S's are too large on the smallest! So we're having to use disposables right now because I just haven't liked prefolds and we don't own any other diapers and don't want to buy any just for the transition from extra small to small.
post #38 of 48
FBS worked great for my DD when she was in smalls but never fit again there after. the mediums not only had a huge leg gap (and my dd isnt skinny she has chubby thighs) but they leaked horribly (and it wasnt from the detergent i used)and i dont mean a little pee here and there i mean she just peed through the leg gap so id have pddles of pee on the floor and her diaper would be perfectly dry : i wont be buying fbs ever again!
post #39 of 48
Even though I sew my own diapers I have to say that I love FBs since they are a great workhorse diaper. Smalls fit my ds until he was 4 months old, and he is still in mediums at 2 years old! I have 14 mediums (the newer ones) that have been going strong for almost 2 years with constant use and I still have 12 smalls for the next baby that are in perfect condition.

They are leakproof as long as you don't use a detergent that causes them to repell. I had problems with Charlie's Soap, but once I switched to cheap Sun they work perfectly. I have never had snap or elastic issues. They are all slightly different sizes and loose threads are a problem so quality control is not so good. But the differences are minor enough to cause no problems. This is a great diaper for someone who wants something easy and that can last through 2 kids.
post #40 of 48
I love fuzzi bunz! I have used them on a 2 year old as an overnight diaper, size smalls on a newborn-4 month old, and mediums now on my 6 month old. So far, they have always seemed to fit right and no real leak issues. These are the diapers that we use when we need to be sure baby stays dry, so for long car trips and overnight.
