Funky Fluff lives up to their FUN and FUNKY image!
The name just screams, “FUN!” Doesn't it?! My kids and I had a great time clicking through the Funky Fluff website and admiring all the bright color combinations and “funky” prints they offer! Funky Fluff allowed me to pick out which prints I wanted and they came with a sweet, hand-written card! Such a thoughtful, personal touch!

The Hanging Diaper Pail is definitely a must-have. It saves floor space over having a freestanding pail and keeps all the smell inside! It is made with 2 layers of sturdy polyester interlock with laminate in the middle. Two handles with snaps can be configured in different ways to allow for hanging on a towel rack, doorknob or, in our case, the dresser drawer! The pleated front expands to hold a lot of diapers. I stored 3 days worth and it wasn't full yet! And the woodland creature print is called “Funk eh-Forest.” Could it be any cuter?
Note: Their Funk eh-Forest print has also been nominated for Best New Print of 2014. You can vote for it here.

I am equally impressed with the design of the diapers! The 3-in-1 system can be used as a pocket, all-in-one, or all-in-two. They are available in a stay-dry 2.0 version as well as the all natural Bamboo 2.0. The pocket style diaper has openings at the front and back of the diaper for more easily stuffing and removing inserts. There are also snaps in the front and back to keep the inserts from shifting during wear. I found these snaps helpful whether or not I stuffed the inserts into the pocket.
The stay-dry shell is a high quality PUL outer and microsuede inner to wick moisture away from baby's skin. The stay-dry inserts are microfiber with a microsuede top, so you don't have to stuff them if you're short on time (or energy) for stuffing pockets! Each diaper comes with 2 inserts, a larger heavy soaker and a smaller light soaker. They can be used individually or together for extra absorbency.
The Bamboo 2.0 System is impressive to say the least! It has all the same wonderful features of the Stay-dry version, but with bamboo inner and bamboo inserts. You just can't beat the absorbency of bamboo and this sustainable natural fiber is breathable and light.
Definitely nighttime worthy! There is more cost involved in the production of bamboo resulting in a slightly higher cost for the Bamboo 2.0. In my opinion, that few dollars is more than worth it for one of the softest, lightest, most absorbent fabrics available with an added bonus of environmental responsibility. (And, yes, I made my husband feel the bamboo!)
Since both the Stay-Dry 2.0 and the Bamboo 2.0 are the same cut and design, they both fit the same. Which it to say, “GREAT!” They have 4 rise settings and cross-over tabs to fit a wide range of sizes from newborn and up! Although I prefer to let the cute colors and prints show whenever possible, trimness is key as we head into cooler weather and some of us will need to fit pants over those fluffy baby bums. Funky Fluff's choice of extra absorbent fabrics kept both versions of the 2.0 design light and trim.
Overall, I think the Flunky Fluff 2.0 Diaper System is a winner! They are appropriately priced and well made! Whether you prefer stay-dry or natural fibers, you'll find some bounce in your step with Funky Fluff!
