What does AppleCheeks say:
AppleCheeks™ are a breakthrough in cloth diapering. Taking advantage of recent advances in the textile industry, they combine form with function, providing you with the best fitting, most-effective reusable diaper on the market to date.
What makes AppleCheeks™ cloth diapers unique from any already existing product on the market, you ask? Firstly, AppleCheeks™ comes with a three-pronged approach to customer service. Each diaper comes with complete washing instructions. Regarding the products themselves, 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 does Crap4MyKid.com think:
Pros: elastic around the top makes it so much easier to get it to fit correctly. Love the color! Like the bamboo and all natural fabrics. Not very bulky at all and fits under her clothes nicely.
Cons: a little tight around the legs, while I understand why they do the envelope stuffing, we are used to a more traditional pocket diaper and the stuffing process with them.
Overall impressions: We really like the AppleCheeks diaper system. I have noticed that this is one of the first diapers I grab when it’s clean. It’s trim, fits well and is a super cute hot pink color. The trimness is important to us. Many of the other cloth diapers we have tried do not fit very well within the confines of Ellie’s clothes and makes her butt look very puffy.
We do notice that when we make the AppleCheeks diaper tight enough on Ellie that it doesn’t leak, the diaper leaves markings on Ellie’s legs. But if we don’t make the diaper as tight as we do, it does tend to leak just a bit.
We used it overnight to see how well it kept Ellie dry over a good 12 hours. In the morning, Although, the diaper itself was starting to feel damp on the outside, Ellie’s pajamas were dry. So, the overnight performance of AppleCheeks is fantastic. That is great for us because our usual overnight option is not performing as well as it has in the past.
I also love bamboo diapers and we don’t have many of them. I would love to have more and try out their whole system.
