When we became pregnant with our third daughter one of the first things we did was start shopping for what brand of cloth diaper to use.
We already were in the world of cloth with my two year old who was wearing gDiapers but with baby number three we wanted something that would last. It took a lot of research and time (five months to be exact) before we discovered Fuzzi Bunz One Size.
A local store sold them so we were able to go in and look at them instead of just ordering blindly online. We bought several to test with my two year old.
From the first use until now I have been in love with Fuzzi Bunz. The elastic in the legs and waist were easy to adjust, though a bit tedious, and it was easy to ensure I had the right fit for my daughter. The elastic was stretchy enough with plenty of padding against her skin she didn’t get red marks or feel confined by her diaper.
Finally, my third daughter was born and right away we put her in her first Fuzzi Bunz. The great thing we found about these diapers was how well they contain those infamous ‘blow out’ messes. There is not one of her outfits with faint orange stains and the diapers themselves wash marvelously.
The micro-fleece which touches babies skin and catches the mess is still as white as the day we bought them. We did not have a problem with leaks in either my toddler or newborn.
Fuzzi Bunz come with two different sized inserts and as baby grows out of the newborn adjustments the newborn inserts are used as over night soaker pads.
Another great thing about Fuzzi Bunz is the color selection. Like most moms I love cute baby clothes. I was a bit scared by the bulk of the one size, and it is a bit bulky on a newborn until baby grows in length and starts putting on weight. I was also unsure about the bright colors hindering certain clothing I had already purchased for her.
It did not and in fact it made clothes just that much more fun. She was able to wear matching diapers for any of the outfits including dresses, onesies, pants, button ups, and sleepers. Not to mention how adorable just a diaper was!
The bulk went away in just three months and if you hadn’t known she was wearing a cloth diaper you wouldn’t have known they were so smooth under clothing.
I have nothing but good things to say about Fuzzi Bunz One Size. The diapers are easy to use, clean, and don’t take up a lot of room in a drawer.
I love that if I needed to I could just make a few adjustments and go from my toddlers diaper to my newborns or vice versa. We have had our originally purchased diapers for over a year and they are still in wonderful useable condition with no stains, odors, pulls, or tears.

My name is Jessica Carver. I live just outside of Little Rock, Arkansas where I have lived my whole life. I am an Art Therapy major but have set that aside right not to be a mommy. I have three beautiful daughters. Beatrice is 4, Grenly is 3, and Avery is 9 months. I am a Church of Christ member and homeschool my children through a Christian program. My quest to have a more “natural” lifestyle started with making our own baby food for Beatrice. That led us into looking to more and more ways to “reduce, reuse, and recycle.” Grenly ended up being allergic to any and all disposable diapers and wipes and any soaps with fragrance. This led us to using cloth diapers and wipes and finding natural soaps and detergents. I work on a Facebook page (Natural Parenting- Arkansas) to promote natural parenting in the Arkansas area offering recipes, local farmers market locations, advice, and links to articles.
