Thanks Mama - FuzziBunz Elite Review and Giveaway

By Jennifer (Double Duty Mommy) at 11:38 AM

Thanks Mama is an online store that sells a huge variety of cloth diapers and cloth diaper accessories, as well as toys, body products, items for moms and moms-to-be, and even nursery furniture!
Unlike other baby shops on Thanks Mama lets you create a gift registry on their site which is awesome! Thanks Mama gets my *Thumbs Up* because they offer info on donating to Children of the Promise, an organization that runs an orphanage in Haiti. Love anyone that participates in charities!

Helena-the mama behind Thanks Mama-recently sent us a couple OS FuzziBunz diapers to test out. But these aren't any ordinary FuzziBunz, we were sent the NEW FuzziBunz One Size Elite diaper.

(Buttercream & Spearmint)
 So what's different with the Elite you may ask?
Well in my opinion there are a lot of new and different features that make this diaper just that much better.  As you see below the bright white in the first picture is the Elite. Of course there is a color difference but that might just be that my old FuzziBunz have changed due to washing? I don't know but what I'm trying to point out is how soft the white one looks. And believe me it is soft!
The inserts are the biggest change as they are minky instead of Microterry. O.M.G. They are heaven! Seriously so soft, so thin but oh so absorbent! Just look at the thickness comparison of the old insert (bottom) and new minky insert (top). This makes the diapers so trim, the trimmest diaper we've ever used to be honest.
I do love me a pocket diaper but I mostly prefer to just have the insert on top, problem with that is it was giving Kendall HORRIBLE rashes because I recently learned that you aren't suppose to put microterry or microfiber against baby's skin because it will pull the moisture from their skin as well. Uh yeah, we definitely experienced that first hand with her open sores. Well with the minky inserts in the FuzziBunz Elite you can put it against the skin and no harm done just as you can with Hemp, plus I'm sure the minky feels amazing, lol.

Another huge thing I noticed was that even though it's trimmer the minky is much more absorbent the my other inserts. my husband John even accidentally put Kendall to bed with just one minky insert in instead of our usual two bed time insert routine! I was so mad at him because I just knew I would be giving Kendall a bath first thing in the morning and throwing her sheets and blanket in the wash but much to my surprise the minky held up and we didn't have any leaks. I thought it was just a coincidence but after testing it out it turns out that nope, with the minky insert we only need one to get us through night time. Other inserts, even hemp we still need two.

But if you do love using a pocket diaper for its intended purpose then you will be happy to know that FuzziBunz didn't change a thing and their huge pocket opening is still the same, if not a tad bigger in my opinion.

You can get some seriously huge man hands in this baby!

And the number 1 cool feature is that they changed the button placement on the Elites. FuzziBunz One-Size (or OS) diapers are customizable so that you can adjust the legs and waist using elastic button system. But now instead of having the buttons on the outside that touch baby's skin and may leave indents (we have that happen) they have moved the pull system to the inside of the diaper (you can see in one of the pictures above).

no button and elastic on the left side!

see, located inside so it never touches baby!
 And now let's look at the trimmness of these gorgeous new FuzziBunz

See so pretty!
Thanks Mama is the perfect place to get your FuzziBunz Elite diapers because you can get so much more in one place and of course their Gift Registry option that other cloth diaper sites don't have.

Thanks Mama is giving one of my readers the chance to win a FuzziBunz Elite so let's get to it!
