Since we are done with diapers I had friends of Everything Mom and Baby review their two styles that were sent to me. Here are their experiences with Funky Fluff™. Heather Lynn is a newbie to the cloth diapering world and Tara is the experienced cloth diapering mother.
First Impression: My very first impression of Funky Fluff was intriguing. A diaper that boasts a 3 in 1 system. The diapers construction seems well put together. I snapped and unsnapped the snaps for about a half hour checking to see how they would hold up, which they did. The seams all look great and the elastics are nicely sewn. I do like how the soakers have a built increase so that they can fit nicely into the shell when the diaper is snapped up.
Another thing that caught my attention was that the diaper is trimmer.
Performance: My first time using the Funky Fluff™ diaper I used the smaller soaker in the AI2 (All In 2) style. I changed my daughter after two and half hours and found that she had a leak. Perhaps she’s considered a heavy wetter.
The third time I used the diaper I used it as an AIO(All in One) two hours of wear and again NO LEAKS.
I loved the fact that I can toss it the wet bag and forget about it. I have yet to experience any other AIO and I must say I can definitely see the appeal. It’s just plain easy and so close to a disposable it almost made me re-think my diaper stash! They stay dry soaker did indeed keep my darling daughters bottom dry.
The final stage of my test was the overnight, leaving the diaper in for 12 hours. I double stuffed the diaper with both soakers, as overnight my daughter is a heavy, heavy wetter and tummy sleeper to boot.
I stuffed the diaper as I would a pocket and left the larger soaker unsnapped and folded the crease and snapped the smaller soaker into the front. I found when I snapped the larger soaker on the rear snap it gave my daughter a serious Plumbers crack, so I unsnapped it. In the morning her bottom was dry, the liner of the cover was slightly damp and the soakers were indeed soaked. I think if I just used one soaker, regardless of the size there would have been an accident.
Overall: The diaper performs as it should and holds up to the wash and wear. I do like the idea of 3-in-1 as it is unique. The third snap to prevent the wing drooping is a great feature! I’ve never experienced the phenomenon myself but I see how well it works to prevent it.
As an overnight diaper, with both soakers, it works amazing! I’m dubious if I could say the same with a single soaker.
If you’re new to the wonderful world of cloth and haven’t a clue what sort of system you’d like to set up, the 3-in-1 Funky Fluff™ Stay Dry is for you! Want the flexibility of changing your diapers as you see fit? Funky Fluff™ Stay Dry is for you!
Tara reviewed the Funky Fluff™ Bamboo 3-in-1 System
Funky Fluff™ Bamboo diapers were designed for parents who want incredible absorbency and natural fibres against their baby’s skin. Bamboo is very sustainable and environmentally friendly. Its crop grows quickly and requires little maintenance. Fabrics made from bamboo are especially soft and have great ventilation. They keep babies comfortable and cool. Bamboo is also one of the most absorbent fabrics available for cloth diapers.
It’s comparable to a Charlie banana or FuzziBunz in almost every way. The main difference is the liner stays soft, unlike the microfleece. Overall it’s a decent PUL based pocket diaper.
Reading both reviews, I’d have to say I’d be willing to try both for when baby #2 comes. I love reading honest reviews like the two above. We do have a giveaway to offer you and a discount code!
