How do the FuzziBunz and BabyKicks (1.0) compare? Absorbency: There is no competition here, the BabyKicks with the Joey-Bunz insert will far outsoak a FuzziBunz with its smaller microfiber insert. Dry-Feel: Again, no competition. This time the FuzziBunz comes out on top. The bamboo rayon inner of the BabyKicks is not a stay-dry layer; it &hellip Continue reading »
