Funky Fluff LUX Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Yesterday DDL was really excited to bring you a video and review of the new and anticipated Funky Fluff LUX 3-in-1 diapers.  The new diapers added many features and they are welcome improvements to an already beloved diaper design.  The two new prints, Maritime and Chantilly, have Lara and myself falling in love!  SWOON!

Funky Fluff Maritime and OPI

As luck would have it, when I filmed this review several weeks ago I was wearing a nail polish color that perfectly coordinated so if you win this package you’ll need to find and buy OPI’s “Can’t Find My Czechbook.”

You love, right?  How could you not?  Want to know more about the new Funky Fluff Lux line?

The details as conveyed by Funky Fluff:

Both Stay Dry & Bamboo Diaper Systems will come with new redesigned LUX Bamboo terry inserts:

  • Both small & large soakers have a contoured shape for increased absorbency area (previous soakers were rectangular shape)
  • Soakers Snap together and onto diaper shell (previous soakers did not snap together)
  • Large Soaker is 6 layers of bamboo terry fabric and measures: 36cm x 11cm x 14cm
  • Small Soaker is 5 layers of bamboo terry fabric and measures: 30cm x 11cm x 14cm

LUX Bamboo soakers will also be available for purchase separately and will be sold as a set (small & large) rather than 2 pack of large and 2 pack of small in the 2.0 version

Also available for our stay dry and bamboo diaper shells are new premium soakers – Funky Fluff DeLux Hemp/Bamboo Soakers.  This is a brand new product for us:

  • Made with hemp fleece and bamboo fleece fabrics. Smooth side of the fabric is visible on the outside (fleece is on the inside) to prevent pilling and give soakers a smooth & soft feel
  • Each soaker has 2 layers of bamboo and 2 layers of hemp (50% bamboo/20% cotton/30% polyester + 2 layers of 55% hemp/45% organic cotton fleece)
  • Bamboo layers are sewn together, Hemp layers are sewn together and connected in the middle by two stitch lines = faster drying time and helps direct liquid toward the middle of the soaker.  Fans out to help with drying time
  • Small & Large Soakers have a contoured shape for increased absorbency area
  • Bamboo on top absorbs quicker, hemp on the bottom holds onto moisture
  • Bamboo & Hemp fabrics chosen for DeLUX soakers shrink at similar rates.  Shrink after washing by about 10%
  • Soakers snap together and onto the diaper shell
  • No exposed snaps on top of the insert make it very comfortable for babies
  • Large soaker measures: 37cm x 11.5cm x 14.5cm
  • Small soaker measures: 32cm x 11.5cm x 14.5cm
  • Available for purchase in a set of small & large soaker

Simplee AI2 by Nuggles- Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links.

We haven’t had a giveaway on DDL for a bit, mostly because we took a small respite from reviews.  Lara and I can get busy and well, it happens!  We are super excited to share this giveaway for the Simplee by Nuggles that Lara just posted a review for.  Nuggles, a Canadian brand, is just starting to be carried by retailers in the US like My Blossom Bottom who is offering a Simplee for our giveaway!  With their various systems, fun coordinating solids with colorful snaps, and cute prints I suspect the US will be seeing more of the brand as more retailers bring them on.

Introducing our newest, trimmest, most absorbent diaper yet! Simplee. by Nuggles!™ is a one-size-fits-all bamboo AI2 diaper!

A true all-in-two, you can stuff, snap & stuff, or snap & lay the insert in.

NO NEED TO UNSTUFF, NO NEED TO UNSNAP. The inserts will ALWAYS agitate out in the wash to get the cleanest they can be!

Comes with 2 bamboo terry inserts (one regular insert and one newborn insert that can also snap to the regular insert as a booster!)

One-size fits most 8 – 40lbs.


Nuggles recently released two new prints- Toucan I Am and Surfing Love.   Nordic Stag and Winter Fox are back from the vault!


In my video I referred to this diaper as an All in One, probably because to me the diaper functions as an AIO or as a pocket diaper.  Without packages of additional snap in soakers to replace the dirty inserts with it doesn’t function or feel like an AI2 to me.  All in two diapers are most effective when they have a layer that can be wipes clean or one that doesn’t absorb much, if any, urine when the insert is saturated.  I just wanted to clarify any confusion I caused in my video.

Thanks to My Blossom Bottom we have a Simplee. by Nuggles to give away to a lucky reader.  The winner will get to pick the color.  Open to US and US military addresses.  Enter using the Rafflecopter below.

Diaper Need Awareness Benefit for GDGH- Be there!

This post may contain affiliate links.

September 28-October 4 marks Diaper Need Awareness Week- a time when those involved in diaper bank work like to remind the public that going without diapers is an issue that far too many parents face daily. When families face financial hardships they can apply for and receive benefits such as SNAP to help them buy groceries, or WIC to help them buy formula and other necessities for pregnant moms and infants. Neither program provides the other necessity- diapers.

Cloth Diapers CAN Help from Giving Diapers, Giving Hope on Vimeo.

There are many, many commenters in Internet-land who loudly proclaim these gems “if you can’t afford to diaper your kids you shouldn’t have them” or the always fun “Can’t afford diapers? Don’t use them- that’s what they do in the Amazon.” There are also the commenters who suggest cloth diapers. Usually those comments are from the older generation who proclaim proudly how they were diapered in cloth and their parents were poor- it’s just the logical thing to do if you can’t afford disposables.

Most often these “know-it-all” commenters come from a place of privilege. It’s easy to say what poor families should do with the money they don’t have, and it’s even easier to say those things from behind the computer screen. Would they tell a woman, infant in arms, that she shouldn’t have had that baby to her face? I doubt it.

Diaper need is often overlooked but there are many wonderful organizations, both local and national, that are there to assist families by providing diapers. Usually these diaper banks or food pantries can only give parents a small number of disposable diapers in order to help the large number of families that rely on them each week. Even with this help it’s not uncommon for the families to still run out of diapers before they can get more from the same diaper bank.

I’m one of those people who WANTs to comment on these article- use cloth diapers! They can help! I too come from a privileged point of view. I’ve never once had to choose between buying food or diapers (and not just because we have always used cloth.) I grew up relying on food pantries to eat more than not, and yes I have had welfare cheese. Thankfully I escaped that life and it’s something my own children have never known. Today I am fortunate enough that I can volunteer for a cloth diaper bank. Currently I serve in the role of Executive Director of Giving Diapers, Giving Hope, prior to this position I was their Fundraising and Social Media Coordinator.

I do this because I truly believe cloth diapers CAN help families in need, but the start-up cost of cloth is often a fee families cannot afford. There are so many ways to get started with cloth on a budget but not every family is able to.

Giving Diapers, Giving Hope has enabled more than 1,000 families to start cloth diapering since 2011 for the cost of shipping. We do this with a lot of help from GroVia (they manage all of the shipping and receiving on our behalf which is incredible).  The program loans a set of diapers and families can use them as long as they need them. When they’re done with the diapers they ship them back with a pre-paid label. GDGH helps the families who aren’t close to a local cloth diaper bank. You can find examples of other cloth diaper banks on clothdiaperbanks.org.

This year I don’t want to see or hear “… but cloth diapers aren’t an option for low-income families.”

Why the media feels this statement is 100% fact is beyond me. 60% of families living under the poverty level have access to a washer. Many times this is because they rent a home or apartment that includes a washing machine. Having a washing machine doesn’t imply they are not truly “poor” just as the ownership of a smart phone or possession of a car or computer shouldn’t. Hardships comes without warning, and some families have been gifted such items from family or friends who want to make their quality of life better. Washing machines are not an indication that families shouldn’t qualify for public assistance. In our case it just means they can save $60 or more per month by using a charity like Giving Diapers, Giving Hope.

Yesterday we were so excited to share Lara’s review of the Snuggly Owl Boutique All in One.  This diaper is made by a WAHM, and expertly so in our opinion.  Natural fiber lovers, parents of heavy wetters, and anyone who appreciates a gorgeous diaper will be excited about this one!

The Snuggly Owl Boutique diapers come in lots of prints and options.  This one is a recent creation that I happen to LOVE!

Sugar Sheep Starter Set ($60-$105 Value) Giveaway!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Monday Lara introduced us to Sugar Sheep- an Etsy brand that sells flat cloth diapers (among other things) made from luxurious and soft bamboo terry.  Terry flats are very popular across the pond and for good reason- they’re absorbent and soft.  Sugar Sheep uses a touch of spandex for stretch that makes getting a snug fit easy.


Sugar Sheep wants to get one lucky DDL reader started with cloth by offering a starter Set of their flats in the winner’s choice of size.  This amazing giveaway would make anyone happy and I’m betting the winner will want to roll around in the squishy, fluffy diapers when they are fresh out of the dryer after prepping.

This one’s for the babies! New from Thirsties {Giveaway}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Sounds like the Thirsties team has been busy lately!  They’ve just announced several new and exciting things!  You’ll have a chance to win three of them at the end of this post but first, let’s find out what they are!

In new color news Thirsties now has Poppy!  Poppy is bright and fun and the shade is on the feminine side but it’s also a popular color for men’s polos so I think a little boy could rock it too.

OOTD for Toddler Boys featuring Poppy

For a little inspiration here is an outfit I think boys can rock featuring Poppy!  Shirt- Vineyard Vines, Shorts- Old Navy, Shoes- Sperry, Diaper- Thirsties, Hat- Crazy 8, Glasses- Target, Necklace- HazelAid.

Beyond the exciting news of a new color Thirsties has other big news too!


Their Newborn All in One now has hook and loop!  Snaps are great for durability but in a newborn diaper most parents appreciate ease of use and the ability to get the tummy nice and tight!  A welcome improvement to their newborn AIO.


Thirsties NB Cover Aqua 250x250Thirsties also introduced a new Newborn/Preemie sized cover!  For the expecting moms out there these are a must for little newborns.  My first son’s first diaper was an XS Thirsties Cover from waaaay back in 2008.  These new covers with infant prefolds or flats will be great for those first few weeks and months.

And finally, their Diaper Covers (sized) will now come in Snaps!  

I say Thirsties has been busy because on top of these new products and improvements they have new product videos you’ll be seeing at your favorite retailer soon.  If you want to see them now visit the Thirsties YouTube channel.  


Win it!


You have the chance to win THREE products from Thirsties here on DDL: 1 newborn all in one hook and loop, 1 snap poppy duo wrap, and 1 newborn/preemie diaper cover!  Enter using the Rafflecopter below.  Open to US and Canda.  Ends July 23.

Grateful Naturals and Summer Skincare {Giveaway}

This post may contain affiliate links.

Summertime is here and that can often mean there’s a combination of bothersome bugs, sweat, and sun.  Luckily Grateful Naturals has offered up several items from their skincare line that can help!


“First time mother, Monica Mayer, has always had a passion for natural products and remedies for herself, and now her son. After researching natural skin care products she realized there was a need for more wholesome ingredients that are non-toxic and pure in essence. We are a local company that is actively engaged in the development of natural skin care products you can safely use on your entire family.

We believe that healthy bodies have beautiful skin, which is your body’s largest organ. Skin is a vital functioning system that protects your body from injury, keeps fluid in and bacteria out. It is your first line of defense against life threatening disease. Sickness in your body can be seen on the skin. That is why healthful living contributes to the condition of the skin.

Grateful Natural’s goal is to promote natural health & well-being through creating a nourishing natural botanical skin care line. Our products are good for the entire family and our planet. Our main purpose is for everyone to replace their toxic skin care products with all natural alternatives. You can feel good about using Grateful Natural’s knowing that the products work well and are made locally in the USA.”

Monica sent a sampler pack my way.  I’m a lip balm junkie so that’s been my new go-to for my chapped lips and the fact that it comes in a tube versus a tin is a bonus.  I enjoy natural lip balms but they do often come in hard to open, sometimes messy tins.  I also appreciate a user friendly natural deodorant.  I have used natural deodorant pastes in the past with great success but one that comes in a stick can be a good introduction for people wanting to switch to a natural deo but not sure about applying with their fingers.  It’s the little steps.

Grateful Naturals does sell a cloth safe  natural diaper balm, of particular interest to readers here, and it comes in the same user friendly stick.

You can enter to win a Summer Skincare Kit with All natural sunscreen, deodorant, and bug repellent from Grateful Naturals! (products in graphic not identical to prizes winner will receive) This contest is open to US only. Enter using the Rafflecopter below. Thanks to Grateful Naturals for sponsoring this prize for DDL readers!

A Binky D Giveaway for Two!

This post may contain affiliate links.

Already the feedback on our Binky D Hybrid Fitted review has been outstanding!  It’s so great to know there are brands with such loyal fans and that the products are making so many people happy to be using cloth diapers.


It’s time to reward TWO people for their patronage of DDL and Binky D!  Binky D Diapers is providing two prizes, one in stock item of the winner’s choice and one custom embroidered diaper with their choice of 1 design on the bum!  This giveaway is for two winners, first pulled gets the in-stock choice and the second pulled gets the custom!  If you’re already a fan of Binky D Diapers you know how hard it can be to get a diaper sometimes so this is even better than a golden ticket!

If you didn’t get a chance to see the review Lara did on their Hybrid Fitted here is a bit more about what that is: “A hybrid is a fitted cloth diaper that is designed to be worn coverless made with a hidden layer of poly fleece, to push moisture back into the soaker system and keep the outer shell dry.”

Since Binky D Diapers are often so gorgeous it can be hard to want to cover them up.  That’s why the hidden fleece layer is so fabulous!  You can have them on longer without needing a cover before wetness makes it to the front of the diaper!  They’re also good for daytime diapers when you need a rash to air out since they will be more breathable than a diaper with a PUL cover.

Since you know you want to win one enter using the Rafflecopter below. Open worldwide!
