Review of Funky Fluff Fusion #clothdiapers from Thinking About Cloth Diapers

Cloth Diaper Brand - Funky Fluff Fusion

Diaper Type - All in Two or Pocket

Overall Rating: ♥♥♥♥

What size did you purchase? - One-size (8 to 40 lbs)

Approximately how much did you pay for it? - $18 for stay dry and $20 for bamboo including two matching inserts!



What do you love about this diaper?

In a word, versatility!  Of all of the brands I've seen, Funky Fluff packs the most features into a single diaper.  I really do think they thought of almost everything when they designed this diaper!  Where were these diapers when I first started out???  I love that it has:

  • Flexibility: coined the AI3 system by Funky Fluff, this diaper can be used interchangeably as an AIO (simply fasten insert to the shell using hidden snaps on either end), an AI2 (replace the insert and reuse the cover if it isn't soiled or wet), or a pocket (stuff the insert inside the shell's sleeve, and you don't even have to unstuff it after, since it has openings at both ends allowing the insert to usually agitate out in the wash)
  • Gussets: Since these diapers hit the market well after my little boy was born, I haven't had the opportunity to try this diaper on a newborn, but will be excited to some day!  With gusseted leg openings (a second row of elastics that form a double barrier against blowouts from around the leg openings), I expect this diaper will be very effective at containing messy newborn bowel movements!  NOTE: the gussets are only functional if you use this diaper as an AIO or pocket...


  • Fabric choices: The Funky Fluff has a waterproof PUL outer, and is available with both stay-dry suedecloth and bamboo inner options.  There are lots of cute colour options, including plenty of gender-neutrals, and I can't wait to see the new prints that are launching in January 2013!
  • Inserts included! This diaper comes with 2 snap-in inserts (that can also be stuffed) - a shorter one perfect as a doubler or for use on smaller settings, and a full-length one, as well.  If you purchase a bamboo diaper, you'll get two inserts made from rayon from bamboo, and stay-dry diapers come with 2 inserts made from microfiber topped with a soft stay-dry suede-cloth. 

  • Front flap: with a short strip of PUL on the inside, plus a fairly long cover in front, I love that inserts don't shift around.
  • A natural fiber option: the bamboo in a pocket diaper is fairly unique, and they are incredibly absorbent too!  You do need to wash bamboo 4 to 5 times before it's fully absorbent, so don't use this overnight the first time!


How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers?

This diaper runs true to size.  That said, the size range for this one-size diaper is awesome!  With 4 levels of rise adjustments, cross-over snaps, and a ton of waist adjustments, this truly is a one-size diaper!  I find that the Funky Fluff Fusion offers a very reliable fit (probably best from 8 or 9 lbs), and it really can fit up to 40 lbs!

Funky Fluff cloth diaper fits from 8 to 40 lbs.  It's a great one-size option with so much flexibility.

Would I recommend it to a friend?

Yes, on a scale of 1 to 4 (with 1 being never, and 4 being absolutely!), I give the Funky Fluff Fusion a 4.  If you're not sure you want to commit to either pockets or an AI2, this system offers you both options.  I'm not 100% sure it would fit right from birth, but if you start cloth diapering later, this would be one of my top recommendations due to the flexibility it offers!


What would you change about this diaper?

I love that this diaper is designed in Canada, and would love to see it produced domestically as well!  That said, I've had experience with other non North American made diapers, and this is by far one of my favorites!  This is not a cheaply made diaper, and I love the price tag and the incredible value it offers with so many features included, and quality control has been very tight!

The other thing I'm not a huge fan of is the hip snaps.  I didn't find them necessary, and they're just one more thing to worry about when you're trying to attach a diaper to a wiggly toddler.


Where to Buy

Funky Fluff sells diapers directly from their online web store.  You can also purchase them from Lagoon Baby.  Funky Fluff also sells pail liners and double-pocket wet bags.

Kim, Ontario, Canada.  Purchased 2012, $19.00, used 7 months.

How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers or average? Average

What do you love about this diaper? Its versatility!  It can be used as an all-in-one, all-in-two, or pocket diaper - it's really the best of all worlds.  It has an extra row of riser snaps, so it goes smaller than most one-size diapers, allowing it to be used from birth, and they included smaller and larger inserts (which are SUPER absorbent), really cover all the bases.

What would you change about this diaper?  I honestly can't think of anything....

On a scale of 1 to 4, how likely would you be to recommend this diaper to a friend?  (with 1 being never, and 4 being absolutely!): 4

Other comments: I liked this brand of diaper so much that I decided to start selling it myself - you can't get much happier with a diaper than that!

Alanna, Kentucky, USA.  Purchased 2012, $20.25, used 3 months.

How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers or average? Generously sized (fits large)

What do you love about this diaper? The size range! My 28 lb 2 year old has plenty of room to spare. I am sure that a child well over 35 lbs can use this diaper. This diaper combines ALL of my favorite features that I look for in a One-size diaper : double gussets, natural fibers, one-size, two rows of waist snaps (with cross-over snaps), 4 rise snaps (versus 3, which most OS diapers have), super stretchy PUL for perfect fit, inserts that snap in on BOTH ends, what is there not to love?

What would you change about this diaper? I would love to see printed diapers and maybe an additional snap on top of the inserts so that if you need more that one, they all stay snapped together.

On a scale of 1 to 4, how likely would you be to recommend this diaper to a friend?  (with 1 being never, and 4 being absolutely!): 4

Other comments: Definitely one of my FAVORITE cloth diapers! I honestly feel bad for not claiming that it is my absolute favorite because there is one other brand that I love just as much...but is it in my top 2 favorites! :-)

If every diaper you owned was clean, would you reach for this one first?: No, I have others I prefer more

Courtney, BC, Canada.  Purchased 2012, $19.00, used 6 months.

How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers or average? Average

What do you love about this diaper?  The options!  And the fun colour. And the different colour snaps "belt" makes it easy for daddy so he doesn't snap the waist snaps on to the rise snaps.

What would you change about this diaper?  Not much, it fits and works and looks cute!

Rebecca, Ontario, Canada.  Purchased 2012, $17.00, used 3 months.

How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers or average? Average

What do you love about this diaper? I love the versatility of this diaper.  I especially like the double gussets and the fact that in a really bad poop explosion that I don't Have to get my hands dirty digging the insert out - they really do agitate out, in both my old top load and my new front load washer.

What would you change about this diaper?  The way the insert folds over does make it a touch bulky. Not sure what could be done about that - maybe sized inserts?

What do you love about this diaper? I love the colors they offer and the contrasting snaps.  Love the gusseted leg opening.

Beth, New York, USA.  Purchased 2012, used 2 months.

How do you think this diaper fits relative to other diapers or average? Average

What do you love about this diaper?  I love how convenient it is!  And you can use it so many different ways!!  

What would you change about this diaper?  I won this diaper in a giveaway before my daughter was born, and originally I used it as an AI2 and my daughter's breastfed poop didn't stay in the diaper at all.  But since I started using it as a pocket it works much better now.  I think I would suggest putting gussets on the insert to help hold in the watery breastfed poops.

What do you love about this diaper? I love that this diaper can be used as an AIO, an AI2, or a pocket.  It is so versatile.  I also love the colors they come in!
