2015 Fluff Love Awards!

Home >> Fluff Love Community >> 2015 Fluff Love Awards!

Welcome to the First Annual Fluff Love Awards!

One year ago, a group of moms with a cloth diaper obsession started a Facebook group. It was small, it was quick, and it didn’t even spell out “cloth diaper” in the name – but boy, did it grow! Since its inception on July 4th, 2014, Fluff Love & CD Science has grown to over 59,000 members, a groundbreaking website, and much more. With our first year behind us, Fluff Love feels it’s time to honor those who brought us to where we are today – the cloth diapers themselves. So, without further ado, I present to you the 2015 Fluff Love Awards!

The categories

In May and June of 2015, we conducted a series of surveys asking Fluff Love members to rate more than 100 brands and styles of diapers. With over 7,000 responses, our survey data provided an accurate snapshot of the Fluff Love Community. For each style of diaper (pockets, AIOs, AI2s, fitteds, flats, prefolds, and covers) we gave out the following awards:

Overall winner: In this category, we wanted to balance both popularity and top reviews. For each style, we calculated the median number of responses per brand. The overall winner was the brand with the highest overall satisfaction rating that received at least the median number of responses.

Hidden Gem: This award was given to a highly rated but less popular diaper. The diaper with a lower than median number of total responses and the highest overall satisfaction rating was named hidden gem.

Honorable mention: Any diaper with more than 15 responses was eligible to receive this award. Honorable mentions went to two or three brands with very high overall satisfaction ratings.

Most popular: Regardless of overall satisfaction ratings, the diaper with the most responses in each category was named most popular.

Best budget option: This was given to a lower priced diaper with a high overall satisfaction rating. Note that it’s not necessarily the most cheapest option out there, but instead, a well-priced product that also delivers great service.

We also compiled winners for two special awards:

Fluff Love Favorites: The brands that consistently were rated very highly across multiple products or in multiple categories.

Customer Service Stars: The brands with the top rated customer service.

And finally, Fluff Love admins voted on several special awards.

Making Cloth Accessible to All: For a charity focusing on helping low income families access cloth diapering supplies

Most improved wash instructions

Humanitarian award: For good works

Making cloth mainstream

Fluff Love Favorite New Prints and solids
