Next up on my cloth diaper adventures are Apple Cheeks! I've heard so many amazing things about these diapers that I had to try them for myself.
So far..? We love them!
I was sent a Little Bundle (which is cover and insert set), a pack of diaper liners, reusable wipes and cleansing spray.
Some people like the "fluffy" butt look... I do not. Instantly I loved how trim the diaper I received was. If you do not know, Apple Cheeks are made in Canada where they've been tested on the babies of the makers so you know they work and stand up to all the washing you may put them through.
The diaper I received come with a Rayon Bamboo insert and a Envelope Cover. Why do I love it so much? Because you can use it a few different ways! You can either place the insert on top and come diaper duty time simply change out the insert and continue to use the cover OR stuff the insert inside the pocket, which means these can be used as AI2's or pockets. You gotta love the versatility!
I'll let you read directly from the site to get a better idea!
All AppleCheeks™ cloth diapers and accessories are proudly designed and manufactured in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, and have been tested on our own babies, so we know they work! Our diapers fit a larger range of babies than similar products on the market, and stand up better to the rigours of the washing cycle. They are fully customizable and can be used as a diaper cover over our viscose from bamboo inserts, with boosters for added absorbency if so desired, and fleece liners to keep baby’s skin dry and rash-free. Alternately, the handy, wide envelope opening allows you the option of placing your absorbency underneath the microfleece lining, wicking moisture away from baby’s skin and keeping him feeling nice and dry while still absorbing to the max! So many options in one diapering system!
AppleCheeks™ 2-Size Envelope Covers also fit nicely over a wide variety of fitted diapers. With the AppleCheeks™ system you will get less leaks and a much trimmer fit than with using fitted cloth diapers. AppleCheeks™ covers feature a unique envelope design, similar to a pocket diaper, but with NO NEED TO UNSTUFF. The absorbent inserts come right out in the wash!
So how does the diaper really hold up? AMAZING! It is extremely absorbent and fit so nicely around Kendall's chunky little legs!
The inner layer of the diaper is micro-fleece and it's incredibly soft and with elastic around the waist, also paired with the two rows of snaps gives you an adjustable, fit that's easy to do. An added plus is that I never saw those nasty red marks around Kendall's legs, so I know Kendall was never in pain while wearing this diap. AppleCheeks fits babies from birth to potty training and come in 2 sizes. Their size 1 fits from 7 - 20lbs, and size 2 fits from 18 - 40lbs!
I used the diaper as a pocket with the insert folded into thirds and I placed two disposable liners on top. Within a couple minutes Kendall went number 1 and I was surprised that the pee didn't leak through to the actual cover. Believe me, I was surprised because the disposable liners are extremely thin and my guess is that they were only there to catch the poo and protect the diaper. So yay, it stopped pee too!
Later in the day she finally leaked through the liners and the diaper was soaked. No leaks though! I didn't even realize I had to change her but since it had been a while I checked and that's when I discovered how wet she was. Through all that pee the diaper stayed just as trim and tight, it never looked saggy or anything.
If I could afford it I'd build my entire stash around these diapers 100%.

I hate "about me" sections. Who can honestly break down who they really are in 1 or two sentences.
I'm a junk food lover who is trying to say "no", I love to sing and dance. I am pretty shy and not really the talker of the group. I have two amazing daughters who I cannot get enough of... but I love "mommy time" alone. I'm now a stay-at-home-mom trying my best not to go crazy.
