Bunky Fluff Review and Giveaway!!

Bunky Fluff Diapers is run by a wonderful work-at-home-mom, named Caroline. She has her own Hyena Cart store, where you can buy handmade diapers made by her. She's great about working with her customers so if you don't see exactly the type of diaper you're looking for, contact her! She makes more than just AI2 diapers and she has a bunch of really cute fabrics to work with.

As a stay-at-home-mom who had never cloth diapered, I was nervous about transitioning to cloth with my daughter, Annaliese. I bought a few types, all plain colors and they were working wonderfully. However, I get bored with plain colors easily, I like patterns and designs that are cute and different. I wanted to find a diaper that would catch my eye and remain adorable throughout diapering.

So, to start my search, I did what most other people do, talked to my friends! I got a lot of suggestions, most of them weren't terribly cute, others were much too pricey. Then I found the Bunky Fluff store on Hyenacart.com. I was immediately excited about all the cute prints she had available. It was around the Halloween season and she had her store stocked with Halloween themed prints. Averaging at 19-20 dollars a diaper, I was more likely to purchase from her store. Considering most other handmade diapers I saw from other small shops and online stores averaged around 25 dollars or more.
I ended up buying my favorite print she had listed: Candy Corn Ooga. The diaper was made as a AI2, meaning All-in-two.

I received the diaper very fast, much sooner than I had expected! So Annaliese was able to wear it before and on Halloween! She even wore it under her costume!
For demonstration, I'll be using the 'Going Green' diaper from Bunky Fluff. It's my favorite Bunky Fluff diaper to use! The diaper comes complete with a 'Snake-style soaker' and extra snaps in the front to adjust size to fit your baby. [Snaps to adjust rise and waist circumference].



The soaker easily snaps into the back of the inside of the diaper with a coordinating color snap. For the 'Going Green' diaper, the snap is green. I really loved this aspect when I do diaper laundry so that when the diapers are dry you can easily match the soaker to the cover. Below are pictures showing the diaper without the soaker to show the snap in the back and another picture showing the soaker snapped in.
Speaking of diaper laundry, the diapers I have from Bunky Fluff, I have had for at least 3 months. Annaliese wears them multiple times a week since I do diaper laundry nearly every day to every other day, and they have held up wonderfully. I rinse them, then wash them with bumGenius diaper detergent then rinse again, and always hang dry. Not only do they all still look brand new, but they practically repel stains.
Another wonderful aspect of the diaper's snake style soaker is that you can adjust were you need the most absorbency. All you have to do is fold the soaker to the location of the diaper you want and it doubles the absorbency of the soaker in that spot! Here's how I fold Annaliese's:

Now with some other brands of cloth diapers I have, we have a little trouble with the fit on Annaliese. Turtle, as we call her, is a but of a chunk. Normally, diapers with snaps will either be a little but tight on her belly or too loose, depending on how the snaps come together. My husband actually doesn't like using snaps diapers usually because most of the time they don't come together symmetrically. [Weird, I know.]
Bunky Fluff's diaper's fit Annaliese perfectly! That's probably why I keep going back and buying more! In the pictures below you can see that the legs and belly area aren't being pinched and yet still have room to allow A. to move around like when she's crawling.

All in all, Bunky Fluff Diapers are, and will remain, a favorite of mine. I have yet to discover a downside to my purchases.
Here's some info from her shop:
One Size AI2 made to fit babies from 12lbs to 35lbs.
Diapers feature a 3 step snap down rise for a customized fit!

Outer layer is 100% cotton
Inner Layer is 100% Polyester Anti-Pil fleece
Hidden layer is PUL

Included is a snake style snap in soaker that consists of 4 layers of super absorbent bamboo fleece. When folded you get 8 layers of absorbency!
Diapers are entirely turned and top-stitched for babies comfort.
