Fuzzi Bunz or Happy Heinys?

We like the FB better! The snaps were a key factor for us, as velcro seems to get caught and wear quicly and we wanted something with longevity. We also haven't run into this problem yet, but I've read a lot about kids who are able to pull the velcro off themselves, but apparently the snaps are harder to defeat. The FB onesize also fit better and are more trim.

I have both Happy Heinies and Fuzzi Bunz both one size. I like them both, but i love the fuzzi bunz more! we have been using them for 10 months and the HH velcro is already getting clogged and they catch on everything in the washer even with the laundry tabs. the HH always make a big diaper chaine of diapers in the wash, i hate it. it makes the outter fabric snag and get bally. I haven't had any trouble with the FB. they can go smaller so you can use them from the get go an they stretch pretty large! they are the cutest and just function great. the other thing with the HH i dont like is that for the one size the snaps that make the diaper get larger unsnap when i put them on the kid so i'm often readjusting the sizing snaps. where as the FB sizing change in the elastic and never comes undone. if i could do it over again i'd to all FB onesize for sure. thats my two cents. i love cloth diapering though! its fun, cute, afforable and saves 1/3 of the landfills. YAY!

I just went to a presentation by a woman who is part of the cloth diaper association- she sells several brands. One specific thing she pointed out was that Happy Heiny's were the only ones still made entirely in USA. There are some of the other brand that are made in multiple countries (including China) and that I should just pay attention IF the "made in USA" is an issue and because of overall quality of construction.

I have fuzzi bunz and like them, but since they've started making them in china, I don't advocate them anymore. the seven diapers that I've gotten that were made in china (all fuzzi bunz) shrank two inches in the first wash, so they went from being larges to being mediums. since then, they've continued to shrink till they are now slightly smaller than my mediums....I talked to fuzzi bunz about it and they didn't have any idea what was going on and though they replaced the diapers, each time they sent me a new one it was from china and shrank...so I finally asked for one made in usa and they found one, but I was told they are all made in china now, so I would be very careful before buying more than one or two....measure, then wash, then measure...

I havent used Happy Heinys before, only ever used Fuzzibunz. I love the one size. I was having trouble with red marks on my daughter's legs/back and leaking when I used the perfect fit ones but the one size I can adjust them so much they fit her perfectly and can be customized to fit her perfectly. But like I said, I never tried Happy Heinys so I cannot comment on them...

I personally prefer Happy Heinys. We have 3 Fuzzibunz, but the rest of out CDs are HH. In the beginning, we had a lot of trouble with the Fuzzibunz leaking. Now they aren't an issue. I have never had a problem with the Happy Heinys. I think they're an excellent choice!

I haven't tried Fuzzi Bunz but I love Happy Heinys! The one size diapers fit my daughter very well. She's 6 months and we still have 2 more sizes in the diapers! They are pretty absorbant, I just have to make sure I dont forget to change them every 2-3 hours or they leak. I definitely love my HHs though!

i haven't tried happy heinys but we have tried the fuzzi bunz one size. i wasn't very thrilled with it...i like the diaper itself, it just doesn't seem to work with with my sons body type (all over chunky with massive thighs lol). i like the way the snaps are, and i like that it doesn't have a flap at the opening of the pocket because it makes getting the insert out super easy when you have a messy load.
