We've had our fuzzi bunz for about two weeks now, and I really like it! I tried the round tab version a long time ago.. and I wasn't that impressed with it and sold it. It sort of "bulged" in front and didn't fit trimly at all even with just a joey it got all scrunchy and stuff. i got the sage color from naturalbabies.com and it's so pretty. I'll have to admit, that when I first pulled it out of the package (which was sooooo nice btw) I thought "that's it?" for $15 you kind of expect somehting substantial. But, I washed it up and used it that night.. and it did great. We've used it about four times since then and she's wearing it right now. Even stuffed with a pretty good stuffer (6 layers hemp fleec eand three of hpe jersey) it fits nice and trim with no bulges or bumps and pats slip right on. The fit is pretty good.. I'm not in love with the snap placement, but it gets the job done with no wing droop. The fit overall is good, and we've not had any leaks. At the same time I bought that, I bought a few other AIO diapers that I'm a bit disappointed in. I don't think any diaper is worthy of the AIO title unless it does NOT wick or leak. But the fuzzi has passed my tests and I even look forward to putting it on her. Just in case you've been putting off trying one because of all the funky press FB has received lately.. give it a go.. just buy from a reputable dealer such as naturalbabies.com. If it helps anyone, my baby is 21lbs, 17 inch waist, 11 inch thighs, and a 17 inch rise and the medium fits her great with the waist meeting in the middle and with one snap left for the thighs. I think if we ever size up, it will be to the petite toddler size.<br><br>
I just really didn't think I would like the FB this well, so had to share <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I think I might even get a couple more for good measure.<br><br>

The latest verstion of FB is the greatest one so far for my family.<br><br>
It is my aio of choice since I "simplified" our CD system.<br><br>
Another plus is that there are no waiting lists. They're available from lots of wahm's too.<br><br>
It's the best solution for night time diapering I've tried. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I have always liked them. I have no affiliation with MOE, other than that we have many FB's and really like them as they don't leak (for us) are trim and convenient.<br><br>
I love putting him in fitteds and wool covers b/c they're soft, breatheable and sooooo cute, but I still reach for the Fuzzi Bunz often!

I tried one just to see what all the fuss was about, and I liked it. So I tried a HH too. LOVED everything about it except for how it fit...The large was just TOO large! I'm thinking I'll try to swap someone for a medium or something, because I really do NOT like the snaps of the FB! There's nothing wrong with the snap placement, I haven't lost any snaps or anything like that, I'm just a snap hater in general! :LOL

I really like the ones I have that work and have held up. They are great for night. I don't care for the snaps, but like Amber said, they get the job done without the wing droop.<br>
I kinda wish Happy Heiny's had a heavy wetter night time version in the smalls and medium that was wider through the crotch with a bigger opening in back to stuff so that I could fit some of my big hemp prefolds in them better. I use the FB's for that now. They fit in my Large and XL HH, but only if I give them a narrower fold.

Do anyone of you have problems with leaking out the legs of the HHs? I thought I would like them because of the velcro enclosure, but the fleece seems to extend too far (like the seam is showing too much when it shouldn't really visible, should be on the inside if that makes sense) and often my daughter's outfits feel wet around the edges. And then another day, my husband was holding her and she pooped on his shirt out the side. She's only six weeks and in small, so maybe her legs are just too skinny?

If poop is leaking out the leg holes, then yes, it's probable that the legs are too loose.<br>
The fleece being exposed at the edges is not the culprit, although it seems it could be, it really isn't.<br>
Also, if yours are prints with cotton on the outside, they could be wicking a little to the outter material, but again, that could be more likely if the leg openings are too loose.<br>
If you contact Linda at Happy Heiny's, she'll trouble shoot some more with you if you want. She's very helpful!
