Re: help me choose a berry plush!

Of your choices, I'd say to go w/ the turquoise or jaguar--both are limited edition and will not be made in those colors anymore. That will also make them even more in-demand if you need to resell (as if they're not already a hot item.) I have to say, though. I have ocean and it is SO pretty!

If you have ANY doubts that the size you're considering is going to be too small, size up for sure. The number one reason for these being sold on FSOT (from what I've seen anyway) is that they're too small in the thigh. It's as if they're not made for babies w/ normal chunky thighs...

(If any of you find they don't fit your little ones and you need to sell, come to me. Me, me ME! Nothing breaks my heart more than seeing BPs go before I get a chance to buy them. )

This is helpful thank you! My dd is on the small size, and 8 months. She has super chunk thighs too! She falls within the size of the Med perfectly. Here is their sizing:

Small: Rise 15.5", Waist 10-18", Leg 5-12"
Medium: Rise 17.5", Waist ", 11-22", Leg 6-14"
Large: Rise 18.5", Waist 13-25", Leg 7.5-14"


and here is my dds:
Waist: 17 Rise:16 Thigh: 11 3/4

so what do you think? Go for large or stick with med?

I would stick with the med since when your DD starts walking her legs are going to lose the chubbiness.

Thats a good point, thank you! She is also shorter in the torso so I know that the rise on the large would be too big. She just moved up to M fuzzibunz and even they are a bit big on her still!

Yeah sounds like med's your best bet (although since you're getting 3, you COULD make one a L to put aside...)

Re: help me choose a berry plush!

I have four and love them. The turquoise is really pretty in person and the jaguar is cute too. Here is my advice on sizing. Just get the mediums unless you are gonna have really tall kids or something. Because that's the only difference in the medium and larges, a longer rise. My dd wears them on the second tightest leg snap and the tightest waist, on both sizes. I wish all of mine were mediums, because they would fit her a lot better. Good luck with your purchase you'll love them!!

The medium's should fit perfect, that's what ds wears and our M FB's are a little big too!

I have the rainforest one and it is gorgeous, the pic they have on the site doesn't do it justice. I have seen the ocean one IRL on a friend's DD and it is beautiful too
I'd vote rainforest or turquoise
