We just found out we are having a GIRL!!!! and so I ordered 9 clearance pink FBs. But then it occurred to me that maybe they are clearanced b/c there is something wrong with them. Did I make a mistake in ordering them?

My understanding is that FB is about to come out with a new version. So everyone is clearing out their stock of the old version. I bought some from EarthyBirthyMama that were just fine. In fact, I've been wishing I ordered more. Thanks for the reminder.

Nope nothing wrong with them. I have a couple. They're just making a few adjustments to them I guess...
Congrats on the baby girl news!!

That's a wildly popular diaper, I wouldn't be concerned about issues. Fuzzi Bunz is making an update in their current line (releasing later this month), and have brought production back in to the US. The special that they're running is fantastic for 1st quality diapers, and includes inserts - so well worth the investment, IMO. If for any reason there were a problem with your diapers, they have great customer service and will gladly help you

I was just worried b/c the last time I bought FBs it was in 2004 when I got all my boy colors, and they have held up well, but I thought I had seen some complaints recently, though.

What's "funny" is that $13.95 was the regular price back then and now it is clearance! So it doesn't seem like a sale to me!

Does anyone know where to find small baby pink or peach? I can't find those.

their normal price now is 17.95. The ones you got are made in Mexico most likley and people have noticed there are some size differences (smaller then the us ones) and more variations in the ones that are the same size. Things that should be fixed now that they are back in the US.

I just bought 25 clearance FBs are two different websites. Some are made in USA; some are made in Mexico. I cannot find any differences between the two and I love them all. Smalls and mediums are hard to find right now. Cottontailbaby has some in stock. In pink and hot pink.

so does cutietooties

These are where I got mine! They are great.

I ordered several from here. They're a dollar more per pocket but come with the inserts and free shipping and also a sample of a Honeychunk wipes solution. Plus she has fast shipping and a great selection of the FB left. Some are made in Mexico and some in the USA, but like the pp I haven't been able to tell a difference in the two kinds. Both work great.

Happily married, busy mom to a houseful :-)

Expecting again early Oct 2014!

Many retailers are just clearing out this version to make room for the new ones coming soon.

I bought two at full price 17.95, and then 6 at $10 from fuzzibunz online and then 4 more at $10,

$10 ones are seconds, nothing wrong with them, no inserts.

Love them.

Sorry I bought bg now.

We thought it would be way to confusing to mix the two products, the Fuzzi Bunz with many adjustments that is coming out today to the public look different and we wanted to make it as easy for the retailers as possible to move out the old stock and only have ONE style of Fuzzi Bunz to sell. Plus we have not had a sale in 6 years so we thought it would be a nice time to do so. There is nothing wrong with the diapers on clearance, it is a very very good deal.

There's nothing wrong with them; a bunch of diapers have been clearanced for the end of the year because there are new lines coming out.

Wow! An answer from on high! Thanks!

I got all the FBs I ordered and they are fine- thanks so much.
