For somebody just getting started with cloth diapers or starting to browse before taking the plunge, one of the best places to get information and be able to compare diapers may just be a one stop shop type of store. These types of stores carry a wide variety of diaper brands as well as the different types of diapers available. One of these stores is Kissed By The Moon.
What is Kissed by the Moon and who is behind it?
Tami is the amazing owner behind Kissed by the Moon. She began cloth diapering her daughter in 2006 and realized that cloth diapers are easy to use, great for the planet and irresistibly cute as well as being cheaper than using disposables. She had wanted to open an online store for several years, but it took losing her teaching job to get her going with it. Tami lives in Elk Grove, California with her husband, two kiddos and two little kitties enjoying things like picking produce from the garden, baking, going on bike rides and spending time together.
Now, what is Kissed by the Moon?
Kissed by the Moon is more than just a cloth diaper store. It is also a natural parenting store carrying baby carriers, natural teething accessories, mama pampering, bed and bath, outdoor, natural toys and so much more!. Plus, they have the fun Mystery Fluff bundles to add a bit of surprise to your fluffy mail. You are sure to find what you are looking for!
Tami was kind enough to participate in From Belly To Baby newborn event and agreed to send me a FuzziBunz XS to review on my little Charlie man. Now, I will be honest, I was leary about using the FuzziBunz XS on my newborn. I don’t even have a reason why, but it was never on my radar to try out which surprised me because I love our Fuzzibunz One Size and Fuzzibunz Perfect size diapers. We received the brown Fuzzibunz and fell in love right away!
Fuzzibunz Perfect size diapers come in four different sizes, XS, S, M, and L. The XS diaper came with one newborn microfiber insert.
This is one of the trimmest newborn diapers we have! They are designed to fit from 4 – 12 pounds. We didn’t have this diaper from day 1, but we began using it as soon as we received it. I loved the great fit that we got every single time we used it. It was able to hold up to his EBF poo and keep it all inside – yay! I love how simple it is to use. Just slide in the insert and snap on baby.
I love that the insert actually fits from seam to seam, especially between the legs. I have some where there is a bit of a gap between the edge of the insert and the seam on the diaper, and this causes leaks. With the Fuzzibunz XS, we didn’t have any leaks at all. We were even able to use this for naps or long car rides.
For nighttime, I added a hemp doubler and we were able to make it through the night.
The elastic at the back and legs ensures a snug fit every time.
The pocket of this diaper is fairly narrow to stuff and I don’t think big old daddy hands would fit in there very well. I was able to stuff the diaper with the extra doubler quite easily. However, I do realize there isn’t much you can do about that because newborn diapers are smaller so having an extra large opening wouldn’t work for this diaper.
Most of my diapers are pocket diapers, but this is the only newborn pocket diaper we have. I love this pocket diaper because it dries really fast. The downside to using a pocket diaper is that you have to un-stuff the insert before washing it.
I wouldn’t mind if the diaper had crossover snaps to fit extra teeny waists, but I think the diaper is still small enough to fit those babies. We would not have used them with Charlie, but the option would be nice.
The 2 snaps on each wing make this diaper fit and stay in place. However, as baby gets bigger, you can’t expand the waist as much as I would like because of the hip snap that would end up digging into babies skin. If there was a cover for the back snap, the diaper would have fit Charlie longer, but it still easily fit through 12 pounds even with his chubby belly.
With only one row of snaps, the diaper is really daddy friendly – as long as you don’t make him stuff it!
There is no snap down for the umbilical cord stump, so that may be an issue for some people. Both of our kids lost their stump within a week, so it was never an issue for us.
Overall, I LOVE this diaper. It was definitely one of my go to diapers. I love Fuzzibunz and the XS newborn sized diaper is no different. They have a great selection of colors, good quality and you know you can count on them to do their job.

I love FuzziBunz! I plan to diaper my next baby from birth on, so thanks for this great review!
Me too. They are some of my favorites! i just wish they had more prints.
What a great shop! I would love to add some FuzziBunz to my newborn stash that I am starting to create for baby #2!
I bought a newborn Fuzzibunz and had a really hard time getting my hand in there to stuff it! I didn’t use it very much because of it.
I didn’t use cloth for my DS, but I look forward to renting newborn diapers from KBTM next time!
I really like our Fuzzibunz! I only have the OS Elite though, and I’d like to try the perfect size diapers.
I’m not that big into FB. Not my style.
I love that Fuzzibunz come in so many different colors! And the trim fit is great too 🙂 Can’t wait to try the XS size on my newbie!
I love Fuzzibunz! I never tried the extra small but we started with smalls and they were my favorite diaper when my baby was a newborn!!
i have some for my daycare kiddo, love them!
I would love to try this diaper with baby #2 due in January. I love how the insert fits from seam to seam.
I LOVED this diaper for my son. It was the perfect NB diaper for us. They are surprisingly easy to stuff and they never leaked for us. I don’t like the one sized diapers as much, but the XS is awesome.
I love FuzziBunz sized diapers!! I just wish that they would come with the minky inserts like the OS instead of the Microfiber!! I would probably get another FuzziBunz Elite with the gift card 🙂
I have a Fuzzi Bunz OS diaper that I love, and a small perfect sized one that I haven’t tried yet, as my daughter will be born in about 4 months. I think I would get an X-Small Fuzzi Bunz in the Crushed Berries color!
I have a few of these FuzziBunz XS I use for my daughter. She’s 7 weeks and 11 pounds and they still fit. Most of my other newborn dipes are too small by now. I do wish they had a snap down for the umbilical cord though. I couldn’t use mine until her cord fell off.
My sis tried FuzziBunz for her daughter, but they were too big at the time to fit. This size would have been perfect I think.
I’d buy more prefolds!!!
I love my OS fuzzibunz but I would probably by more wool dryer balls I need more!
I think I like one size diapers best just because I don’t have to buy diapers in all different sizes, but I like that they offer the color brown! i love that color!
I used some Fuzzibunz XS with my daughter and found that she quickly outgrew the absorbency of the insert. They would have fit her longer if the insert wouldn’t have leaked as much.
Haven’t tried Fuzzibunz yet, but plan to with my newborn in January! If I win at KBTM I will pick up some extra inserts for my stash. Anne Sweden
I will buy a wetbags from kbtm with the gift card.
I haven’t tried fuzzibunz (a bit too expensive for a diaper in my opinion). I would probably buy a few covers with the gift card 🙂
I’d probably use it towards Sustainablebabyish woolies.
I love my OS Fuzzi Bunz and Fuzzi Bunz Elites. I couldn’t imagine not loving something by Fuzzi Bunz!
I absolulely loved using XS Fuzzibunz when my little one was a newborn. She was a preemie so we got alot of use out of the XS Fuzzibunz we had. They were a pain to stuff, but that is to be expected from any diaper that small.
It has a nice look. Having to take out the insert is what I would dislike about the diaper. However, a secure fit is important, so I would probably buy the a sized diaper like the one reviewed here.
I don’t have pocket diapers because stuffing and unstuffing sounds so unappealing to me…but you don’t make it sound so bad. Maybe I should try a fuzzibunz. I’d like to get some newborn diapers for the next one.
If I won I would get Sustainablebabyish organic bamboo fleece fitteds – natural contrasts.
These are seriously amazing! I just got some from gogonatural.com and have been loving them! I wasn’t sure if I would.. but they have been great!
Thanks for the review and the comments about Tami – I love KBTM and I think her customer service is second to none. I would love to try an Sbish!!!
i would most likely get a set of boingos and a couple prefolds!
I love that you can add a hemp doubler for night time
Kissed by the Moon is one of my favorite shops. I would buy a Peachy Green AIO!
I would love to try the perfect size fuzzibunz. I love that it gives you a better fit than one size. I would probably get some kind of newbron cloth diaper. Maybe some boingos and a prefold or two
I love that these are so day care friendly. I’d get a fuzzibunz
i love my fuzzibunz. they are great for during the day. fit well i don’t recommend them for over night
We only have one FuzziBunz diaper – a one size elite. I loved the trimness, but it seemed to run smaller than my other one size diapers so I wasn’t able to use it as long. I’d love to give them another try with a newborn. ekesqueaky (at) gmail (dot) com.
I would love to try this diaper for our baby girl due in Feb! I have read great things about FB! Love the XS for newborns.
I love FB OS and have a Medium for my daughter that I got from KBTM. It’s the only CD store I shop at anymore and I would use the gift card towards an sbish fitted.
I loved my fuzzibunz xsm, but my littlest outgrew the absorbency before the fit. They were the cutest and trimmest newborn diapers we had. A pain to stuff, but really not that bad.
We only have one fuzzibun diaper and it’s a one size. I would be interested in trying their fitted sizes just because we’ve had horrible luck with my son and the adjustable elastic. If I won the gift card, I think I would try a sustainablebabyish for overnight though. He has to wear disposables at night because we haven’t had luck with any of our pockets or any types of inserts.
i have never used a FB but i would love to try one
I love how cute cloth diapers are and they save tons of money
I didn’t use cloth when my baby was NB. If I were going to invest in NB cloth I’m not sure if I would go this diaper. Traditionally, my babies cord stumps have taken a few weeks to fall off and crossover snaps might also be a need. I appreciate the review. I think this diaper would probably work for us once the baby is about 1 month. With that said, if I were going to invest in NB cloth I would want to get the most out of it.
I like it because FuzziBunz is one of my favorite diapers!
I’m new to cloth diapers and haven’t tried fuzzibunz. this diaper sounds wonderful! I may have to try it out on our new little miss.
I didn’t even know they came in XS!
I haven’t been able to afford a fuzzibunz yet but i really want to try them soon. the design elements are genius!
I got xs fuzzibunz in my KBTM rental and I absolutely loved them!! However, I’m not a fan of the FB elites.
I would probably buy some wool dryer balls from them. I would also love to try the fuzzibunz newborns! It looks like a great option!
I loved my FuzziBunz extra smalls! They fit my daughter for about a month or so and were so soft. I only wish they fit a little longer!
I love the different sizes.
I have a FuzziBunz XS to use on my newborn, but have yet to try it. I think because I didn’t like the FuzziBunz OS Elite. Maybe I will give it a try now. 🙂
I’ve never tried FuzziBunz XS, but their OS Elite diapers don’t work for us. I’d love to support their company, but it’s a no-go on my LO’s legs, and I’ve had a hard time with their customer service.
I loved the FuzziBunz XS on my LO! We were able to use them for almost 3 months, so one of the longest lasting newborn diapers I tried!
If I won I would use it to buy some sbish wool!
I’ve tried to love Fuzzibunz (bought a 24 pack) but I realized I just don’t like microfiber at all!! I have converted completely to cotton and bamboo. I would love to add to my SBish stash if I win! Little gal is growing out of her medium flats!
i would love to try fuzzibunz and start nb cloth diaper stash! everthing sound great i would def buy!
Peachy Green is on my wish list
This diaper is otb right now in the bigger size, I love the sizing with elastics on it.
These look so nice–I’d really like to try them with our newborn.
