As many of you probably know, Funky Fluff is a company much beloved by This West Coast Mommy, and for good reason! For one, their LUX line is the peak of diapering perfection. And they never stop innovating ways to make it even better.
Funky Fluff, made two big releases this week: their brand new color palette and lining option for the LUX collection. The hype has really been building around this new launch, and I got a first chance look to see what all the buzz is about.
Their six new colors are really gorgeous, and they’ve all got fun new names: Kryptonite, Mint to Be, Sweet Coraline, Maverick, Aloha, and Razzleberry. I received one in Sweet Coraline with the new athletic wicking jersey lining and one in Mint to Be with their bamboo terry lining to do a comparison.
Riley is now almost 7 weeks old and between 8 and 9 lbs (I apologize for the ambiguity, but her next visit to the pediatrician isn’t for a couple of weeks, and my bathroom scale is a liar). Both diapers fit about the same for her, which makes sense since the basic construction of their LUX diapers hasn’t changed with the new inner shell option. I’ve had no problems getting a good fit on her little newborn bum with the smallest rise and leg settings and the second smallest waist setting. The crossover snaps were not necessary for us. The elastic is nice and snug around her legs and back without being too tight.
Brooks is now nearly two years old and 22 lbs, and the LUX diapers fit him nicely as well. It was interesting to see both him and Riley wear the exact same diaper and “measure in snaps” just how much he’s grown.
Aaand now I’m getting emotional over cloth…moving on!
There’s still plenty of room left to grow. We’ve got one rise setting and several leg and waist snaps to go on him. I never thought I would be glad to have two in diapers at the same time, but Funky Fluff diapers are so beautifully made, I’m happy he gets a chance to wear them for a while.
Athletic wicking jersey is the Cadillac of diaper shell liners. As the title suggests, it definitely does wick moisture away from the skin, but it has multiple other special properties as well including stain resistance, breathability, quick dry time, and anti-pilling.
Breastfed poo stains are no joke. I was always changing my wash routine with Brooks and sunning his diapers to try and keep them looking nice, but, truth be told, I’ve gotten a little lazy with Riley. Let’s just say there’s a reason I didn’t buy the bleached white prefolds for her, and it’s not because of the chemicals. Tan covers a multitude of stains.
Funky Fluff’s bamboo terry has a natural tan tinge to it, but the silky, stretchy athletic wicking jersey is bright white, so that resistance to staining really comes in handy. It has held up nicely to those breastfed poos so far and still looks brand new out of the wash.
My babies both have pretty sensitive skin, and the more we can keep moisture wicked away and give those buns a chance to breathe, the better. The bamboo terry fabric does a great job with absorption, but some kind of wicking layer really is a must for my kids. For most of our diaper changes, I have to place an extra fleece liner where it comes into contact with the most liquid. It is so nice to skip this step with the athletic wicking jersey liner. Add their bamboo terry soakers, and you have the perfect combination.
Funky Fluff really scores big on both look and feel. These are definitely some of the best diapers I’ve tried, and they seem to be so comfortable on my kiddos. You know that favorite pair of underwear in your drawer? The one you look forward to wearing? It’s like that, only in diaper form. You can tell that they’ve really thought about what the products feel like for their tiny little customers to wear, and I appreciate the consideration and compassion they put into making this whole dirty diaper business a little more enjoyable for those tiny little people and the big people who do the washing.
