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.
