Bottom Line

One size may not fit all when it comes to cloth diapers. Because of that, parents say FuzziBunz Perfect Size pocket diapers are worth a look. While buying different sizes can be expensive, reviewers say the trimmer, more custom fit these diapers provide is worth it. Most parents say the diapers do a good job containing messes and are well constructed, but some report problems with the leg elastic breaking.

Performance

Closer fit comes at a price. FuzziBunz Perfect Size cloth diapers earn high marks for softness and absorbency. Parents can stuff these pocket diapers with whatever inserts they please. The diapers come in four sizes, which allows for a closer, trimmer fit. However, as some reviewers note, that means you'll shell out more for them over time versus one-size diapers. The diapers' snaps are highly regarded for ease of use and durability over diapers with Aplix tabs, which can wear out sooner. Most reviewers say FuzziBunz Perfect Size diapers are durable in the long run, but a few owners have had problems with elastic wearing out and breaking. Some parents have qualms about sizing, with a few saying the leg openings were too loose for their skinny-legged babies.

Material

Included insert doesn't cut it for some. FuzziBunz Perfect Size diapers are made of moisture-resistant polyester urethane and fleece, which parents say makes them extremely soft. They come with microterry inserts, but parents say they need more than one insert or a different kind for heavy wetters or overnight use. Organic cotton inserts (*Est. $18 for three), odor-resistant minky inserts (*Est. $12 for three) and hemp fleece inserts (*Est. $10 for three) are also available. The diapers are available in 14 solid colors, from subdued pastels to vibrant primary shades. Limited edition prints are occasionally offered, too.

Review Credibility: Excellent Porter reviews FuzziBunz Perfect Size diapers, based on more than 30 parent surveys, and compares them to other pocket diapers. She says respondents like the diapers' trim fit, ease of use and softness, although some dislike the cost of having to buy several sizes. Chunky babies had the best fit. Parents were able to customize absorbency overnight, but leaks were still an issue for some.

Review Credibility: Very Good In an in-depth review, Corley gives FuzziBunz Perfect Size diapers 4 out of 5 stars. She says the diapers are "incredibly cute" and come in vibrant colors. Even stuffed with inserts, they are still trim, though a tad bulkier on smaller children. The fleece interior does a good job of wicking moisture, and the inserts are absorbent. Sizing allows for a custom fit, and the diapers are easy to use once snapped, she says. However, the cost of new sizes can add up over time, and the elastic at the legs can wear out and break. Inserts may also shift, and she wishes the diaper came with more than one insert.
