FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper: 2013 NEW and IMPROVED Sizing!

Thursday, March 14th, 2013

How Does It Measure Up?

First take a look at the old FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper on top compared to the 2013 NEW FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper on the bottom. Both are on the largest setting both with elastic and snaps:

The picture above clearly illustrates the size difference between the two. FuzziBunz makes an awesome diaper and has a great reputation in the cloth diapering community. However one commonly expressed issue was that their one-size diaper ran on the smaller side. In other words the one size diaper sometimes didn’t fit chubbier babies or older toddlers very well. Additionally the narrow crotch made stuffing the diaper difficult for some. FuzziBunz listened to this feedback and responded by improving their Elite One Size Diaper. Let’s take a look:

The overall design of the diaper is basically the same but the new one is about a half inch bigger on each side:

White FB on bottom is the new size; Brown FB on top is the old size

One of the main issues was the narrow crotch.

Old FuzziBunz is 5inches across

New FuzziBunz is 6inches across

While an extra inch doesn’t seem like much, it definitely makes stuffing so much easier! It also allows for a larger variety of different inserts to be used.

Another difference is the snaps. The old FB had 8 snaps across the top while the new FB has 10. Again this provides more generous sizing options:

Old FB on left hand side; New FB on right hand side

The new FuzziBunz comes with two microfiber inserts while the old FuzziBunz came with two minky inserts. The inserts are larger with the new FuzziBunz. See pictures below for comparison. The first picture is a side by side comparison of the smaller insert from each diaper:

Old FuzziBunz on left hand side (4inches wide); new FuzziBunz on left-hand side (5inches wide)

And now a side by side of the larger insert from each diaper.

Old FuzziBunz on left hand side; New FuzziBunz on right hand side

I put each diaper on the very largest setting for both the snaps and the elastic on my two year old. The old FuzziBunz is a perfect fit, while the new FuzziBunz had plenty of room to grow into (however I could have made it into the perfect fit by adjusting the elastic and snaps).

Old FuzziBunz on largest settings

New FuzziBuns on largest setting

Even he could tell the new diaper didn’t fit him properly. He kept pulling the front of it and saying “pocket! pocket!” He thought the extra room was a pocket.

Showing me his "pocket" (ie- the extra room in his new FB)

So what does a toddler want to do with a new found pocket in his diaper? Put a glue stick in it of course, l0l!

Basically take everything you LOVE about FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper (see recent review here) but simply IMPROVE the sizing options so it can fit a wider range of babies and boom, you’ve got the 2013 FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper! I think FuzziBunz fans are going to be quite pleased with these modifications! I know I am. 🙂

Friday Family Spotlight: Meet Bonnie’s Family

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Last week you met Bonnie, co-owner of Mom’s Milk Boutique. Well this week I would like to introduce you to another Bonnie. She is a mama to FIVE awesome kiddoes!! Her and her hubby are getting ready to celebrate their ONE YEAR anniversary this Valentine’s Day. Read on to learn more about Bonnie and her family (and check out her super cool breastfeeding photo!):

Whats your favorite MMB product?
My favorite? There are so many wonderful products. I would have to say my favorite are the Swaddlebees Simplex 2.0. I love the cute prints. I had ordered two and fell in love with them…so I ordered three more. 🙂

Who are the members of your family?
Well there is me of course 😉 My wonderful husband that I married last Valentine’s Day. In addition to marrying me, he accepted the role of being Dad to my older 4 children.  My oldest  daughter is Serenity she is 12 going on 20! (lol, scary how fast they grow!). I have  2 boys  close in age; Brendan is 10 and Virgil is 8. They are very active  little boys! Next is my little “princess” Kaitlin, age 5.  And my youngest and  newest addition is Skyler, he just turned 7 months. 🙂


What’s your favorite carrier and why?
I have tried the Moby Wrap which I do like but I have had an issue problem with due to the strength in my arms. I find that the fabric is too long for me to handle. My favorite that works well for us right now is the Boba carrier. I love it…especially now that Skyler is older the back carry works out great! Not to mention I love the prints selection. We have the Kangaroo print.


Decsribe your cloth diaper stash:
My diaper stash consists of a lot of different types; I had never heard of cloth diapering when my older 4 children were born (except how my mom used to do cloth diaper us lol), so when I started to learn about it while I was pregnant with my last child I was overwhelmed. I had no idea what I was doing or what to do buy. I ended up buying a few Fuzzibunz which I liked. Then I bought some Bumgenius.  Now that he’s here and is my last baby, I want to try everything!  So my stash now includes: Fuzzibunz, Bumgenius, Thirsties, Grovia, Blueberry, Swaddlebees, and a cover with some prefolds. My next venture is wool…

What goals does your family have over the next year or two?
Our biggest goal for my husband and I is to get our new company off on the right foot and make it a success so that we can buy a bigger home for our large family.

What are some of your “me” time indulgences?
Being a mommy of 5 really doesn’t give me much time to have any “me time” but I definitely love being able to take a hot bath without anyone knocking on the door or yelling out my name…which doesn’t happen often though. 🙂 Another is when a quick nap is able to happen..

Whats your number one secret to stretching a dollar?
It would have to be shopping at the Dollartree. Not all their items are a good but they do have a lot of name brand items that end up saving us money.

Thanks Bonnie for sharing your family with us! We wish you and hubby the very best as you build your business to support your family!

Would you like to have your family featured in a Friday Family Spotlight AND win a FREE $10 gift certificate to Mom’s Milk Boutique for your participation? If so email sarah@momsmilkboutique.com with the subject line “Friday Family Spotlight Inquiry” and share something interesting about your family in your email message.

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Product Review: FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diapers

Monday, January 28th, 2013

First order of business if you have not yet entered our FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper Giveaway be sure to before it ends on Sunday, February 3, 2013. There are several different ways to enter the giveaway and you can get up to 14 entries into the raffle! It’s super easy to do…rafflecopter will walk you through the whole thing, it’s just a few clicks…and viola, you are entered for the chance to win a FREE FuzziBunz Elite Cloth Diaper.

Now if you are not familiar with the FuzziBuns Elite One Size Cloth Diaper, let me tell you a little more about it. I just added a few to my cloth diaper stash and cannot believe I waited so long to try FuzziBunz! Especially considering that FuzziBunz has a great reputation in many cloth diapering circles. Most people rave about FuzzinBunz products…and now I see why!

First off, the color choices are awesome! I tend to like the bright colors when it comes to fluff, and FuzziBunz has lots of fun colors to choose from.

Now onto the all important features regarding function. This is a ONE SIZE diaper meaning it is designed to fit newborn through potty-training. While one-size diapers are generally not my first choice, I definitely like having a few in the mix.

I LOVE that this diaper comes with replacement elastic…actually I think it’s kind of genius! 🙂 And the fact they the design of the diaper makes it super easy to replace the elastic if/when the times comes is even better. There is no sewing required. Not only is the elastic replaceable…it’s adjustable too! You simply button the elastic at the proper size to fit your extra-small 7lb baby or your 30lb+ potty training toddler! There are suggested settings for various weights, but the cool part is you can basically get a custom fit because you can adjust the legs and waist separately! I have tried a lot of different brands of fluff, but this feature is definitely a first…and I am digging it!

The FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper is a pocket diaper. It comes with not one, but TWO super-duper soft, anti-microbail minky inserts. They are plush and extra absorbent but without the bulk. The diaper is super trim fitting…perfect for a busy, wiggly baby!

The snaps are adjustable; providing lots of options so you can get just the right fit on your little one. I also really like the angle of the snaps as they lie nice and flat across baby’s waist/abdomen. We didn’t experience any bunching like I have with some other brands of one sized diapers.

The most important question about a cloth diaper is “does it effectively contain pee and poo”, right? So I like to test a diaper overnight and with a few messy poops before I give it a thumbs up. In short, FuzziBunz Elite One Size Diaper passed both tests with flying colors! In fact it’s become one of my favorite “out and about” diapers as I trust it for long periods of time without any leakage or blowouts!

The only caution I have is that I have often heard that FuzziBunz run a tad on the small side, and I have to say that I agree. Just something to keep in mind if you tend to have chunkier babies…I love me a chunky baby!! 🙂

All in all the FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper would make a great addition to any cloth diaper stash…and now is the perfect time to add a few to your stash while they are on sale at Mom’s Milk Boutique!!

Sunday Funday Giveaway: FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

Looking to expand your cloth diaper stash but unsure what diaper to select? Definitely check out FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diapers! They are on sale right now at Mom’s Milk Boutique for a smokin’ price. In fact I just added a few to my stash and am LOVING them! I promise to give you a full review tomorrow but here’s a quickie overview of them:

First this is the only diaper I know of that comes with its own replacement parts! If you have had a well-loved diaper in your stash for a long time, you know all too well that the elastic can get stretched out/worn out and no longer be effective in containing messes. Usually when this occurs the rest of the diaper is still intact and fully functional. Often crafty mamas will attempt to salvage the diaper by replacing the elastic themselves (which can be extremely cumbersome depending on the design of the diaper). Another option is to pay someone to do it. I have seen people charge up to $10 per diaper to replace the elastic in a diaper…which seems kind of steep to me!

Well leave it to FuzziBunz to think of everything in their diaper design! They have definitely stepped things up a notch by providing replacement elastic with their FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper. Not the crafty type? No worries!! It is super duper easy to replace the elastic…no actual sewing required! How cool is that?!?

Also gotta love the awesomely bright color selection of FuzziBunz…they are seriously cute diapers! Lots of gender specific and gender neutral options to choose from.

FuzziBunz has a solid reputation in the cloth diapering community and for good reason…it’s an all around GREAT diaper choice! Be sure to check back here tomorrow for more information about the fit and effectiveness of FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diapers. In the meantime, please enter this week’s giveaway below for your chance to win a FREE FuzziBunz Elite One Size Cloth Diaper!!
