Half price FuzziBunz cloth nappies!

FB summer of fluff

Yes you heard it correctly, there are half price nappies to be had!! FuzziBunz are having a ‘Summer of Fluff’ and you can buy 6 of their one size pocket nappies for £44.85, bargain!

One small catch if that I think they will be bringing out the new and improved 2013 version later on in the year but that doesnt mean these are bad nappies. We have used and loved Elites – I have to say that since trying the Charlie Banana one size nappies that they are now my favourite pockets but the Elites are still good and at that price they really are a bargain. Perfect for padding out your stash or maybe getting some spare nappies for nursery/nanny’s house etc or for putting away for a future baby?

But anyway our FuzziBunz Elite review is here if you want a look but in a nutshell:

  • They are a one size/BTP nappy and fit from roughly 8-35lbs
  • Have adjustable leg and waist elastics so you can get a perfect fit on your LO, whether they have a big/small waist/legs etc. (plus it’s replaceable should it ever go slack/wear out and a spare set of elastics is always included)
  • Are a pocket nappy and have a soft, stay dry fleece inner.
  • Comes with 2 minkys inserts which are as absorbent as mf but stain and odour resistant, quick drying and trim.

So there you go, if you want some cheap nappies then hurry as the offer finishes on the 20th July!

Fill Your Pants have the offer with free delivery over £40 as do other FB retailers or you can order direct from FuzziBunz who have free delivery over £30.

Happy shopping!

FuzziBunz launches UK site and affiliate program, plus 10% discount code and free delivery

 

Firstly please excuse the delay in posting this, I did mean to get this up on Monday but better late than never! So, FuzziBunz have opened up a UK site that stocks everything in the FuzziBunz range, BTP and sized nappies, boosters, bags, wipes, breast pads, training pants, comfort pads (CSP) – the list goes on and on! I love our FuzziBunz Elite nappies, see the review here – which is not linked to this at all and I bought the nappies in it with my own pennies way before this program was mentioned! And so I was super happy that there’d be a place to get everything in their extensive range.

FuzziBunz are a great brand, they’ve been going for 12 years, being one of the first modern cloth nappy brands and with a lifetime warranty on their nappies you can see why they are a favourite with many parents all over the world.

Also this week they have launched their first ever affiliate program, so that people who recommend FuzziBunz to their friends can earn commission on products their friends go on to buy from the site. I think this is a great move for a company that doesn’t normally advertise and rely on word of mouth and recommendations, it’s a great way to give back to the people that love the brand. When I heard about the plans for this the other week I went ahead and signed up, I love the FB products anyway and if people read my reviews and posts and want to buy something to try then it would be great if they can use my link (http://myfuzzibunz.co.uk/miclare) as any commision I earn will go to fund giveaways on the blog.

So if you are interested in having a look at the site then this week is the perfect time as until the 18th is the perfect time as if you use the code FUZZIBUNZ you will get 10% off your order and free delivery (it’s usually free over £30). The badge below will take you directly to the site using my affiliate link if you want to take a look.

You can also sign up to be an affiliate yourself and you can earn commission when people use your link – you wont be making enough to fund a holiday or anything unless you are some kind of a super sales person. But if you have a passion for cloth nappies and believe in the FuzziBunz brand then it is a nice way to earn a few extra pennies. If you’re interested and want to sign up then again please think about using my link (http://myfuzzibunz.co.uk/miclare) or click on one of the FB badges above and signing up you will earn the same commision as everyone else but I’ll earn a tiny bit for refering you.

As I said, I love our FuzziBunz elite and have one of the new limited editions and some comfort pads on the way to us now but I’ve still got my eye on some of the perfect size xsmall and small nappies for bump! Remember the discount code will finish on the 18th June so hurry!!

Review: FuzziBunz Elite pocket nappy

http://fuzzibunz.com

FuzziBunz have redesigned their popular pocket nappy and have released the Elite, which is an all singing all dancing one size nappy that looks like a sized. Gone are the rise snaps on the front and inside is a set of fully adjustable elastics which will allow you to get a perfect fit for your LO. They’ve also redesigned the standard microfibre inserts most pocket nappies come with and have gone for minky inserts. And as if that wasnt enough, they also come in a large range of colours; pastels, brights and a limited range with funky slogans on.

So here are the details on this new Elite nappy, they are £14.95 for the plain colours and £15.95 for the ones with slogans. They are designed to fit from 7-35 pounds and you can get a snug fit every time with the button-adjustable waist and leg elastics, which give you 8+ settings on the legs and the waist adjusts to 4+ settings. To adjust the nappy you simply pull and re-button the elastic at the legs and waist, much like most childrens trousers. There are numbers marked on the elastics and a chart to refer to and help guide you but really you need to just try a few different settings. The elastics can be easily replaced and a spare set is actually included with every nappy.

They only come in snap fastenings, which is my prefered choice. And have three snaps on each wing, two for the waist and one for the thigh. There are no crossover snaps but seeing as you can tighten the back waist elastic then I dont really see it being an issue on smaller babies. Inside is a quick dry fleece, which feels super soft and will stay looking lovely and new for a while. As you can see from the pictures the front panel isnt as wide as other pockets so there’s less chance of wing droop. And because there’s no rise snaps it’s also lovely and streamlined looking when on.

Each nappy comes with two minky inserts, a small and larger one and they are meant to be better than microfibre as they are odour and stain resistant. Which are both part reasons for why I dont use mf but of course only time can really tell if the claims are true. I can say that they do make for a trimmer fit and absorbency wise I think they seem to be about the same, they do feel lovely and soft though and dry very quick.

As mentioned, for a limited time, FuzziBunz have also bought out some Elites that have funky slogans, like ‘Cloth is cool’, ‘My Little Cupcake’ etc digitally printed on the backs. Which is a nice addition, I’m hoping they refresh them a few times a year with new ones but I dont know if it’s a one off or not.

So how are we finding the Elite, well I’ve ended up buying 5 more so that must go some way to say how much I like them! The best thing is that as Chloe is small around the waist but has chunky thighs, I can adjust the leg elastic looser so that it still fits lovely and snug and there’s none of the excess fabric/rise snaps at the front. Plus they are super super trim between the legs, they honestly do fit like a sized nappy when on, I’d be hard pushed to guess it was a BTP nappy by just the look of it on. In the picture is an Elite on the largest setting next to the smallest setting. Apart from looking very cute the smallest setting one doesnt look as bulky as normal BTP nappies do on small settings.

Ease of use: Fantastic once you’ve adjusted it correctly, I will admit at first I was a little bewildered by the elastics and it did take a few goes to get the right settings for Chloe but now it’s done I can just forget about it till she has a growth spurt. I love how even with Chloe being skinny around the waist but with chunky thighs it still gives a lovely fit with no gapey bits.

Performance: With both minky inserts in we can get nearly 3 hours out of it which is very good for Chloe, if we use a bamboo insert on the bottom and a minky one on top then we can get nearer the 4 hours mark, oh and no leaks at all. The only thing to be careful of is the pocket channel is quite narrow so any spare inserts you might want to use to stuff the pocket with might not fit so well. I’ve been using the FB organic cotton inserts which are slim and flap open for faster drying. Drying time is great, the shell and especially the minky inserts dry in no time at all, quicker then other pockets and mf inserts, even when just on an airer inside. And the inserts still feel soft and fluffy and look good wash after wash – I’m not a fan of mf inserts, especially when they go grey and hard, so the minky ones are getting a thumbs up.

Design: I am so impressed with these,  they look like a sized nappy when on and the fit, especially between the legs is just so trim! I do find stuffing the pocket a bit of a faff, the pocket opening is lovely and big but the minky inserts seem to catch on the PUL side of the pocket and drag plus the fact that the pocket channel is very trim and not very wide does make it fiddly. But the narrow channel is the trade off of it being so trim between the legs when on and it’s a trade off I’ll happily accept. I really love the vibrant colours, there’s definitely something for everyone’s taste to choose from. The only real improvement I can see on the Elite is if the pocket were a sleeve design so there was no need to unstuff and if rather then numbers on the elastics, they had XL, L, M, S, XS just so it was easier to get to grips with.

Overall: These are a keeper for us and are now my (and Daddy’s) first to reach for pockets. I can definitely see these lasting from small baby to potty training – and being a great fit all long the way. I do actually prefer these then BumGenius V4s, the fit is just so much better. I did take a comparison picture to try and show the trimness between the BG V4 and the Elite, They are both on their largest setting and you can see how much narrower the Elite is between the legs.

These are great nappies, really well made, give a perfect fit, reliable, great range of funky colours (you can see them all here) and hopefully better than your standard pocket inserts. These are definitely a nappy I’d recommend to people new to cloth who want something easy and that will last but also to those wanting to pad out their stash with something reliable but funky – even if they arent a fan of standard pockets. The amazing fit of these just means they are too good for anyone to pass up on trying, they’re pretty much perfect.

I bought the nappies mentioned in this post and did this review because I wanted to, no compensation was received for doing it and no one told me what to write.
