AppleCheeks Cloth Diapers Review {Giveaway}

Photobucket

Ilana Grostern and Amy Appleton of Montreal are the designers and owners behind AppleCheeks,  I love the fact that they are both mothers because no one else knows diapers better.  Plus their products are proudly Canadian.

I received  their Cherry Tomato Envelope Cover (Size 2/ Large), one of their bamboo inserts and two Stay-Dry microterry inserts to try out.

Their envelop cover has a waterproof outer layer of breathable PUL and the inside has a layer of extra soft  microfleece.  The AppleCheeks cover has waist and leg elastics that allow for a better fit. I found that having the elastic in the waist area holds down the cover and that helps avoid leaking (specially during nap time since I have a tummy sleeper).

The cover has two rows of snaps that are used to adjust both the thighs and waist and allow for finding the right fit for your little one.  Each cover has an envelope opening (like a pocket diaper) to place the inserts inside if desired. I found the opening was very wide and super easy to stuff.  The insert doesn’t need to be removed from the pocket before washing it because the cover unstuffs itself in the wash.  I LOVE not having to unstuff the cover! Specially helpful when dealing with extra messy diapers.

Their bamboo insert is great and it worked without leaks when we used it during nap times and day time use.  The insert is about 12″ x 15″ and it is super easy to fold it into thirds to get up to six layers of absorbency.  The insert looks like a “flat” prefold when you unfold it  and I love that it takes less time to dry because it is so thin.

I also tried the AppleCheeks One-Size Stay-Dry  microterry inserts and I like that you can use them inside of the cover’s pocket or directly on top and against your baby’s skin.  One side of the insert is made of stay-dry microfleece (the one that should be against their skin) and it keeps their skin dry and protected against irritation and diaper rashes.

I didn’t really try having the stay-dry insert on its own because microterry without another insert (bamboo or hemp) leaks every time for us.

I found my favorite combination was to have the bamboo insert folded inside of the pocket and one of the stay-dry inserts on top with the microfleece against his skin.  He woke up dry night after night when I used them like that.

 I enjoyed trying out the AppleCheeks diapers and inserts we received and the bright red color is gorgeous. I love all of their other fun colors and I recommend you check out their website. If you are looking for Canadian made cloth diapers that work without leaking then look no further.

Win it: One very lucky reader from the US/CAN will win an AppleCheeks little bundle (size, color & insert of their choice).  Enter to win via Rafflecopter below! Good Luck!

    I love them all, but maybe Appletini or Purple Rain because they are so springy… or maybe cherry tomato. :)
