I loooooove cloth diaper reviews. I love the fact I get to share the soft squishyness with my readers. I keep it simple when I say I use cloth because it costs less for me, its better for my kid’s skin AND its cute! I’ve done a few reviews and though I have a great stash of work horse bumGenius diapers, they are a bit too bulky for a toddler running around in the day time, so I am been looking for trim fitting pockets for Aiden for daytime. AppleCheeks diapers are an outfit out of Canada that manufactures some of the softest diapers to ever grace my sons tush. AppleCheeks sent me a couple of their Envelope systems to test out. This system consists of a Rayon Bamboo insert and an Envelope Cover. Best part of this system? You can use it as an All in Two diaper and switch out the insert and reuse the cover OR its got a built in pocket so you can use it as a pocket. Absolutely versatile.
Here is some information right from the site:
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!
What is my take on the diaper? I love how absorbent it is and how nicely it fits. I don’t use fleece liners so we use our diapers as pockets. I can’t stand the feeling or the thought of feeling moisture around Aiden’s skin but with pockets that is not a problem. And with the fleece the poo rolls right off so its easy. AND I don’t have to pull the insert out which is a huge plus. If I could afford it I would want to have at least half if not more of my stash to be AppleCheeks. I am serious. And the reason is because of the versatility of the system. AND it uses bamboo which I have found to be a lot more absorbent with Aiden. He is not a heavy wetter but there are some pockets we have that he leaks in. He doesn’t ever leak in bamboo! And the trim fit, I just can’t believe how trim this fit is with a folded insert! I Love it!
Buy It: You can get AppleCheeks diapers in the USA at Squishy Tushy (shout out to a Michigan retailer!) and you can find all the retailers in Canada, USA, Mexico, Europe and Australia by clicking here. The system retails for around $19 which is right on par for All in One/Pocket and Bamboo!
