I began using the Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry Fusion cloth diaper a little under a year ago, after being drawn in by the fun colors and multiple diapering options. I love the fact that I simply snap the detachable soaker in and use the diaper as an all-in-two (AI2)/all-in-one (AIO). I’ve been pretty vocal about my dislike for pocket diapers, so the fact that Funky Fluff allows me to bypass the pocket option is a bonus. However, all of you pocket diaper lovers won’t be disappointed, as the Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry 2.0 is a diaper that will appeal to fans of AIOs, AI2s, and pocket diapers.
Having used the original Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry Fusion diaper, I was delighted when Funky Fluff sent me the 2.0 to review. I’m always curious to compare styles when a cloth diaper company makes changes to their design, especially when the original design functions well. Without further adieu, here is how the Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry Fusion 2.0 cloth diaper compares to the original design:
At first glance, you can see that the Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 is noticeably longer with a slimmer design. Those of you with younger babies may not appreciate this new feature, but as the mom of a 21 month old, the additional length is a godsend for my long and lean little guy; the additional length is perfect for longer babies, truly making this a one-size diaper fit for use from birth to potty training.
This side-by-side comparison illustrates some of the changes Funky Fluff has made to the Stay Dry diaper design:
- the elimination of the double gusset, creating a trimmer fit
- narrow design, allowing for a trimmer fit
- not shown in the picture: a slightly wider back elastic to create a more snug & comfortable fit
Take a look at the fit of the Funky Fluff Stay Dry 2.0 cloth diaper compared to the original design:
The additional length of the Stay Dry 2.0, combined with a slimmer design through the crotch area, makes for a better fit. The rise is slightly higher, which I appreciate as the mother of a boy (the front waistband design of cloth diapers is important here) and for diapering a 21 month old. Do I dislike the fit of the original Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry Fusion design? Absolutely not, but I really like the design of the 2.0 in comparison.
The above photo makes it pretty clear that the design improvements of the Funky Fluff One-Size Stay Dry 2.0 cloth diaper have greatly improved the fit (especially in the back of the diaper). Removing the double gussets, adding additional length, and slimming down the middle of the diaper create a trimmer fit, without sacrificing the cloth diaper’s performance. Again, the design changes create an excellent fit for cloth diapering boys.
While I really liked the original Stay Dry design, Funky Fluff’s Stay Dry 2.0 gets two thumbs-up from me. I love how trim the diaper has become, and the additional length provides a higher rise for diapering my toddler son: win-win!
