Funky Fluff Cloth Diapers’ New Athletic Wicking Jersey vs. Bamboo Lining

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.

Bringing-Funky-Back-Colours

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.

The Fit

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.

The Fabric

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 bamboo vs. athletic wicking jersey

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.

  • Thank you for the thorough comparison. I haven’t tried Funky Fluff, and I’d be hard pressed to pick just one!

  • I’m definitely curious about this! I’ve heard about using that material for cloth pads, too, and I’m interested in trying it for them as well.

  • I have always heard good things about funky fluff. Now I think i will finally add one to my 3rd babies stash:) looks like I can’t g wrong with this brand.

  • Thank you for the indepth review – it’s nice to see an upclose look at the different types of materials. Definitely pros and cons to both! I really love the new colors 🙂

  • I am so curious to try out the AWJ. I love microsuede as a stay dry to switch back and forth between natural fibers on my girl. I think AWJ would be a nice alternative.

  • I have a stay dry and bamboo system I like, but I feel like I would really love this new jersey style athletic wicking material!!! And all the new colors are gorgeous <3 <3 <3

  • Thanks for the review! My little guy is sensitive to wetness too so it’s good to hear the AWJ helps with that (I guess it’s in the name but it’s always good to hear it from someone else too). 😉

  • SOMEHOW, every time I come here, I read that
    MY BATHROOM SCALE IS A LIAR

    and I LAUGH OUT LOUD ….EVERY time

  • Love the review. I’ll have to give it a try, the wicking jersey might help my guy avoid rashes.

  • Boy have cloth diapers changed since the birth of my children and granddaughter. I really love the color choices on these diapers. Bright colors are great for babies and helps to keep them stimulated and happy. I have two new babies in the family and these would be a great gift for either one of them.

  • I like the mint to be! Super cute! These cloth diapers look easy to use which is good for first time mommas who are new to cloth diapers!!

  • I have only ever tried pockets and AIOs.. with a newborn on the way, I am interested in trying out new systems.

  • My friend is expecting and talking about going with cloth diapers, will have to tell her about these. The athletic wicking jersey sounds like one to check out.

  • I have my first Funky Fluff coming in mail and I can’t wait! They look so trim and I am in love with their colors, especially mint to be!

  • Thank you for the review! There are several things that piqued my interest. First, I love the colors, and I may love the names of the colors even more! Secondly, I love the fit. They look like they’d be fairly leak proof, which is definitely important! I also love that you get to pick your fabric. And stain resistance? Yes, please!

  • I’ve never tried Funky Fluff, but it looks like a great diaper, and I love the colors!! I may just need to get my hands on some. Thank you for the thorough review – I liked seeing how it looked on both babies and toddlers.

  • Thank you for the review! We are expecting our first baby in just a few weeks! These look like great diapers! Thank you so much for the give away!

  • These both sound like fabulous diapers. I love the new colours and how comfortable the material sounds. Your little ones are super adorable!

  • Okay, I love Mint to Be, but my daughter’s middle name is Coraline, so torn! Funky Fluff Lux is on my wish list, but my stash is now at a level where logically I need to sell off a diaper or two to justify a new purchase. Sigh. And I told myself I’d never become a diaper fanatic and stay practical.

    I was so naive.

  • The fit of these looks awesome! So helpful to see it on the two ends of diapering age too. I’ve been wanting to try funky fluff, but their new releases and AWJ and that fit, I need to – it’s just “mint to be”! 😉

  • Thanks for this review! I started CD’ing almost a year ago with exclusively BG Freetimes. While I love them, I’ve recently started exploring new options for inserts, particularly bamboo. I also saw the athletic wicking fabric and was intrigued. Your info was so helpful!

  • I have been wanting to try Funky Fluff and even though I am a lover of all things natural in diapers, I do love the athletic wicking in our Chelory. I may have to give FF a shot.
    Thank you for the review! The Sweet Coraline has that soft little Easter feel to it ♡

  • The AWJ sounds amazing! We have a few of the terry bamboo and while I love it it’d be great to have FF with stay dry material.

  • I have been trying different cloth diapers on my new 13lb 7 week old and am very curious about the new funky fluff. I love that they have the bamboo line. Thank you for your very informative review. Its awesome to see how they fit your two little ones.

  • I’ve been considering trying Funky Fluff for a while now and your review has really helped my decision! I will be ordering Mint to Be in the AWJ!

  • Love the review especially the great pics showing off AWJ and bamboo shells. I can’t wait to try AWJ 🙂

  • I appreciate the review of the AWJ. I’m really curious to try it. I like the idea of it being stretchy and stain resistant. Also, the colors you reviewed are beautiful!

  • This sounds like an interesting kind of fabric. Anything that keeps me baby dry and happy is awesome! Thanks for the info 🙂

  • Would love to try funky fluff, and see how soft the bamboo terry is. Does it get rough and pilly after washing I wonder?

  • Thanks for the review. Wanting to change to cloth diapering and now I’ll add Funky Fluff to the wishlist!
