It’s been a long while since my last post since I have been quite busy with work these past couple of months. And now that I have some room to breathe, I decided to write about: Fluffy Pwets!!!
Last year, I got an email from Tina de Guzman, mompreneur and the brains (and heart!) behind Fluffy Pwets cloth diapers. She told me about her upcoming project – FP Collabs, which is a collaboration with different celebs for custom design prints. She asked if I was willing to record their Fluffy Pwets Lullaby, which was written and composed by talented songwriter, Jeff Cifra. My answer (with clearance with my manager, Tita Sherbet Ilacad) was a resounding “yes!!”
Upon hearing the study of the song, I got teary-eyed ‘coz the melody and lyrics were so touching. I think Kobe was about 5 months old at that time, and while studying the song, I was of course singing it to him.
I got to try Fluffy Pwets cloth diapers after Tina sent me some for Kobe. Of course, the first thing that attracted me were the super cute designs of the fabrics of FP! One of my mommy friends, Dra. Carl Aquino-Biolena, actually warned me that cloth diapering is addicting, because of the different designs that mommies go gaga after, hahaha! Kobe looked so cute trying out his first ever cloth nappy (with matching shirt)! And it’s good that he had no issues whatsoever with using it. We also used FP Rascals Trainers and Rash Guard for Kobe when we went to Bohol for our first trip with him.
I remember Tina telling me in her email that cloth diapering is a lifestyle that not all parents are prepared to commit to. I myself have used disposable diapers for Kobe since he was born. But after I tried FP cloth diapers, we have been using both cloth and disposable diapers for him. I always tell my cloth diapering friends that I am not brave enough to use cloth nappies for Kobe when we are out of the house or even at night. But among the brands available in the market, I believe that Fluffy Pwets is one of the (if not “the”) best. It is the first hybrid fitted diaper line in the country, and is made of organic, breathable, and hypoallergenic cotton. It does not contain plastics or any chemicals whatsoever. Because of this “purity” of FP diapers, they are not waterproof, so it is best to use what they call bamboo “boosters” for heavy wetters like Kobe. I like that FP cloth diapers are breathable and “presko,” especially now that summer is here, and it is getting hotter and hotter everyday! I usually just dress Kobe in a cotton sando and diapers at home. I’m glad I have so many mommy friends that also use cloth diapers, so I have them to run to for advice and tips on cloth diapering.

The FP Collabs Launch event was held last January 28, 2016 at the Glorietta 5 Activity Center. Upon arriving, I saw the very charming and whimsical setup. On display were the unique custom designs made with celebrities Amanda Griffin-Jacob, Dimples Romana, Ginger Arboleda, John Arcilla, and Martine de Luna. Tina had a introduction about FP Collabs, and Fluffy Pwets’ journey since their launch in 2013. Then each personality had a short talk about how their design inspirations and their experience working with the FP team. Shortly after, I sang the FP Lullaby live, with Kobe watching from the audience! The event was hosted by pretty mommy-DJ Gelli Victor. The FP Collabs Launch was a 2-day affair – with many mommy and baby products on exhibit as well. I was able to catch up with Ms. Candy Oanes of CEO Emporium (official local distributor of Tula and other brands of baby carriers), Ms. Maricel Cua of The Parenting Emporium, and Ms. Jen of Chubby Toes. I was also able to chat with my table-mates Mommy Shen Gee of www.shensaddiction.com and Mommy Frances Sales of www.topazhorizon.com.
I am no expert in cloth diapering – I actually consider myself still a beginner, but I am happy to be part of this generation of moms that are becoming more and more conscious of the choices we make for our children’s (and their children’s) sake. Thank you, Fluffy Pwets, for making me part of this journey towards intentional parenting.
Here are my favorite designs from the FP Collabs line:
