While at BlogHer’12 I had the pleasure of meeting Beth from Me as a Mommy. Through our conversation I came to learn a great deal about a new-to-me brand of cloth diapers, Applecheeks. And from what she described, my little miss needed a cute delicious Applecheeks diaper of her own!
So the first thing I did when I got home (after greeting the family and handing out presents) was went to check out what Applecheeks is all about. I wanted to know the prints, the sizes, the options! And was so excited to read a few great reviews and learn more about the company.
I was excited to get my hands on this gorgeous Delicious print Applecheeks diaper (in the pictures included in this post). Not only is it super cute, but it had some great features I hadn’t yet seen on a cloth diaper. With the gussets not only around the legs but the waist as well, I’m assured that I get a good fit every time I put this diaper on my daughter.
And the insert was the perfect size to add absorbency without the bulk. Now I love my fluffy butts but when fluff butt turns into ginormous butt, we have a problem. Not only did this diaper fit well in my daughters pants, it also stayed on when I took off her pants. We have a problem with her tiny waste and diapers coming off while I pull her pants or shorts down. That gusseting at the waist really does help!
Applecheeks are not a pocket diaper. They are an envelope system.
What does that mean, you ask?
Well it’s similar to a pocket diaper but there’s no need to un-stuff the diaper before washing. Due to it’s unique design the insert will come out in the wash through the washing machine’s agitation.
Our Applecheeks 2-Size Envelope Cover included a super soft micro-fleece lining, a waterproof shell, two rows of snaps to insure the perfect fit, and gussets on the legs and front and back of the diaper.
Since my daughter is so petite I wasn’t sure if I’d get a tight fit with the snaps but because of the double rows I had no problem getting a snug, secure fit.
At first I wasn’t sure if the rise would be too high without the option to snap down to a different size but it seemed to fit and didn’t stick out too much when I put pants on her after we were done with our photo shoot.
Even though she fell asleep an hour after we put it on and stayed asleep for 2+ hours, she didn’t leak at all during nap time. And this diaper wasn’t even fully prepped! It’s only been washed twice so far.
Over all, our initial impression of Applecheeks is a good one. We’ll definitely be looking to add a few more to our stash and cannot wait to start shopping around for new patterns and colors to try out.
