NAK--

the easy--we use a lot of prefolds, and I like side snaps.

If you only use supertrim fitteds, the bomb might be your thiing.

Fuzeasy...I prefer the cut, it's softer & cheaper!

Another vote for the fuz easy. Its a much softer wool than the bomb, and it's much stretchier and I also personally like the cut better too.

I use mostly Fuz Easys and fitteds. It is trim for a wool cover. I've got 5.

buzfuz is fuzbaby's hemp diapers, but I don't think Lori's making them right now, maybe never?

My vote is for the easy...they're wonderful! The fuzbomb just didn't fit right at the legs, although it's a beautiful cover...

Hmmm, interesting...I kinda thought everyone preferred the bomb for some reason, but I HATE front snaps, they never work for us. I think I'm off to get a Fuzeast with my remaining Paypal right now...:

You won't be sorry. Plus it is fun to customize them with contrast trim and snaps.

Okay, so I'm thinking about getting a "bark" brown cover with blue snaps and trim. Does anyone here have any input as to which blue out of the three would look best? It's kinda hard to tell from the little bitty swatches on there...How light is the sky blue? How purple is the periwinkle?

ETA: I'm thinking about bark with either sky or periwinkle...opinions?

I have a periwinkle and I would personally call it a cornflower blue. It is a very nice color but not purplish at all, IMO.

cornflower - that is just what I was looking for! Okay, I think it's settled unless someone can offer a compelling argument for the sky blue...:LOL

Easy.

I prefer side snap over front snap. Fits my DCs body type better. And they are a MUCH softer and stretchy wool.

Bomb.

Gorgeous diaper garden designs.

BuzFuz is a hemp/cotton fitted Fuzbaby.
PureFuz is an organic cotton or colorgrown cotton fitted Fuzbaby.
ReFuz is a fitted made from recycled fabrics. Usually cotton jerseys. Lori doesn't make these anymore because they just didn't hold up as well.

Kellieblue, the easy is very trim, I don't know about that picture on her site, I think the child is wearing a size too big for him, but I got a small for my then 3 month old and when it's the right size, it's very trim and well fitting.

I'll be the odd one out and say the fuzbomb is my favourite. There is just absolutely not anything like a fuzbomb for fit and construction. It's a beautiful diaper cover. I love the gussets at the top and the legs. I love the way it looks on the baby and how trim it is. If the fuzbomb fits your babe I think it's one of the best covers out there.

I adore the easy's too. I have some of those for my kiddos. I don't think they are all that trim though, not really - perhaps it's the color I got or something. The easy is truly an easy fit though.

As to color, I like the brown, sky blue option - how pretty.

Mama to 12, and 9 and 3.

I loved the Fuzbomb's styling- the gussets, etc. But it really didn't fit well over our fitteds. I bought them to fit over SOS at night, but they just didn't fit perfectly.

The Easys are the way to go, IMO. They fit over most everything, very adjustable, not too bulky, etc.

I like the fuzbomb, too. I agree with Oceanone: if the fuzbomb fits your babe, it's one of the best covers out there. Fuzbaby garden fitteds and fuzbombs happen to fit my son's shape perfect, and they are our best fitting options out there. I also think the more substantial wool of the fuzbomb is the softest wool ever. The easy is soft and stretchy and nice, and the fuzbomb is a non-stretchy wool which most people don't prefer, but I love that you can lay in diapers into it to create an instant WIO and they don't shift around (meaning my son will actually pee on the diaper part of the WIO! woohoo!). I also think the bomb is softer for petting purposes, personally.
