I will agree with the OP that a review of FB needs to include 'versions,' but I'll go off descriptions.
My favorite style FBs were the rounded-tab ALL FLEECE. I found these back in October 2000 when they were still retailing. It was a sleep saver for me as Meredith would pee through anything and would wake at feeling wet. My husband had left for a training for 8 weeks and I was exhausted from lack of sleep. The all fleece FBs were sooooo soft and fit perfectly. We built up our stock 6 at a time until we had nearly 18 of them. Meredith wore primarily FBs and the cpfs with nylon pull-ons when the FBs were soiled.
At that time there were prints available. Here
is a picture of Meredith in her camo FBs. She was growing out of these size Mediums at this point, but isn't the picture cute? They did wick if the inside soaker became too wet, but they were adorable and had somewhat of the same fit as the all-fleece, albeit not so stretchy. We liked these under sundresses and blue jean dresses b/c they were 'flashy.' The nursery workers at church used them without contest because they were so cute and were so easy to care for -poops at that point were 'falling off' easily when Mer soiled them.
When the PUL outer, but still rounded-tab, FBs came out I was initially disappointed, but after having some - again, I was thrilled. They literally NEVER leaked for us. We had stock in these in Size Large - and still have those to use for Kenny when he gets to that size. Though there were issues as the 'versions' changed with fleece and sizing and leg casings and what-not, the Fuzzi Bunz, in essence, is a smart design that has done a good job of getting mommas to cd that otherwise would never have been interested.
Through the growing pains, the co. is often back-ordered and it takes a while to receive the diapers . . . but it seems many are willing to wait (at least those that have experienced the FBs without problems).
As a whole - I give them a
s up for our household.
