FuzziBunz – One Size vs. Elite

I’ve been a FuzziBunz user for as long as I’ve been using cloth diapers.  When Norton was born, I had a stash of 18 FuzziBunz one size pocket diapers waiting for us.  In the last two years and nine months, my cloth diaper collection has grown to excessive amounts.  Still, though, I have a love for my FuzziBunz diapers.  FuzziBunz are my husband’s favorite diaper and the first thing that he reaches for.

Still, though, the FuzziBunz Elite is definitely an upgrade to the One Size.  Here’s how they’ve changed.

FuzziBunz One Size vs Elite (Cloth Diaper Addicts)

Elastics

FuzziBunz One Size vs Elite Elastic (Cloth Diaper Addicts)The Elite and the One Size elastics are both adjustable in the front and back.  Both diapers come with a spare set of elastics.  They can both be repaired without any knowledge of sewing whatsoever, but a safety pin will make the job easier.  The only difference is that the elastics on the Elite are adjusted on the inside of the diaper in the pocket, while the One Size diapers are adjusted on the microfleece layer.  While it’s easier to adjust the One Size on the fly (like when you put on the diaper and notice then that your baby’s legs have gotten a bit chunkier), the new design has a definite bonus.  You’ll never find a red mark from the buttons against your baby’s skin with the Elite.

Snaps

FuzziBunz One Size vs Elite (ClothDiaperAddicts)The snap configuration on the One Size features four buttons per side on the top and four on the bottom per side.  There are three snaps per tab.  The configuration for the closure is the same on the Elites, but it’s missing the most interior snap on the bottom.  I haven’t found it to be a big deal.  Another interesting thing is that the snaps on the top row are a bit different.  On the One Size, the snaps are equally spaced across the top.  On the Elite, the snaps are closer together with a bit more of a space in the center.

FuzziBunz Inserts

Both diapers come with a newborn size insert and a one size insert.  However, the One Size insert is made of microfiber and is a bit wider.  The Elite inserts are minky and a bit narrower.

Sizing

The FuzziBunz Elites are a bit smaller and narrower than the older One Size.  On the positive side, that means that I get a much trimmer fit on my daughter.  The downside is that it’s a tight fit on my toddler.  However, it does still fit him.  He’s two years and nine months old and roughly 33 pounds.

At the end of the day, though, both diapers are great to have in your stash.  I have both, and I use both on my nine month old daughter and my toddler (who is two years and nine months).  Do you have the One Size or the Elite?  Do you have a preference?

  1. I had the old one size that I used with my first son and now I have a few elites that I am using on my 2 month old daughter. I find the elite to be WAY smaller. That is good right now when my baby is so little they fit her really nice. I can’t see getting a great fit on my toddler though. I also really like how they moved the elastics to the inside of the diaper.
