We love our cloth diapers in the Little Miss Kate household. I started cloth diapering the day we brought monkey home from the NICU, and have been using cloth diapers ever since. There was even a time when we had TWO kids in cloth diapers. No I am not some die hard hippie, cloth diapers are not those yucky plastic pants that our parents had to use on us. We have come a long way from those days and Funky Fluff, a brand I have been using since 2012, has just released a new line of diapers that take FUNKtional cloth diapers to a whole new level. The new Funky Fluff LUX line up has me loving the diapers even more. Since the inspection of Funky Fluff the owners Kathy and Tricia have really listened to feedback from their fans to make improvements in the diapers. I have used all the versions of Funky Fluff including the “Original Funky Fluff” also known as Funky Fluff 1.0, then the 2.0 and now the LUX. Lets check out some of the differences and features of the Funky Fluff LUX cloth diapers.
Shells – Funky Fluff has always offered 2 options for shells – Stay dry and Bamboo – depending on your preference. The LUX line is available in both versions and now is a little bit wider in the middle of the diaper to give more room for stuffing the diapers. The elastics have also been upgraded for durability and the snaps are backed by PUL now for an extra layer of protection. As always the shells have 2 openings, and as long as you don’t snap in the insert the insert will come out of the shell by itself when washing (can’t say how much I LOVE this).
Colours and Prints – The Funky Fluff LUX line is available in 10 gorgeous colours and 4 prints! 2 of those prints and brand new and absolutely stunning. I was so excited to be able to get a “girly” diaper for Baby Roo. After cloth diapering 2 boys, it fun to be able to have all the colours and prints as options. That said, I really love the new Maritime print as well, so I am sure that will be added to our collection shortly as well.
Inserts – This is where the biggest, and most awesome changes happened with Funky Fluff. Funky Fluff will no longer be selling microfiber inserts, instead both Stay Dray and Bamboo Diaper systems will come with the LUX Bamboo terry inserts. The diaper systems will come with both a small insert (5 layers of bamboo terry) and larger insert (6 layers of bamboo terry). The contoured shape offers great coverage and absorbancy in the diaper while keeping a trim fit and making the insert easy to stuff.
Funky Fluff is also offering premium deLUX inserts made from 2 lays of bamboo and 2 layers of hemp. This insert is also contoured for a nice slim fit, and offers excellent absorbancy protection. The bamboo and hemp layers are sewn together by stitching down the middle meaning a faster drying time, which I like, because I always found hemp takes so long to dry. The duel action of the 2 fibers of this insert allow for faster absorption from the bamboo, while the hemp on the bottom hold onto more moisture.
Both types of inserts are also available for purchase separately as a package of 1 large 1 small insert.
