{review and Giveaway} Apple Cheeks Cloth diaper!




I've done lots of reviews on this blog but this is the first time I've ever been given something to review from the manufacturer. Needless to say, i was very excited about the opportunity to try a new cloth diaper made by Apple Cheeks.

All my excitement was not in vain, either. My (err, Baby C's) diaper arrived quickly from Canada--where, I might add, these diapers are entirely made with pride! The first thing I noticed when I opened the package was the diaper's incredible color! The hue was a bright but oh-so-fun shade of Raspberry Sorbet.

Then I couldn't help but notice the amazingly soft microfleece interior--which, after 3 washings, is still relatively pill-free which never happens with my other microfleece dipes!

Perhaps the most exciting feature of the Apple Cheeks diaper is also on the inside--their bamboo and hemp inserts fall out in the wash. Let me repeat that: the inserts fall out in the wash! i.e.: no unstuffing yucky dipes. I really doubted this feature the first time i washed C's diaper and actually unstuffed them myself pre-wash. Then, i decided to test it and, to my amazement, out they came, as fresh and clean as ever!

How does this ingenious method work, you ask? The inserts fall out easily because Apple Cheeks' unique pocket opening is in the middle of the diaper. It is a super wide opening which means anyone (even J, my mom, the babysitter, etc.) can stuff them with ease!

Until Apple Cheeks came along, C never wore a sized fitted diaper (always one-sized). I don't know what I was waiting for because this sized-diaper fits her better than any diaper we've tried and we've tried LOTS! By placing elastic at the back and at the belly nothing can escape and it creates a snug fit! Genius!

I'll admit, I was a little leery of the snaps because I know that I can get a snug fit with my adjustable aplix. Not to fear, Apple Cheeks thought of everything--each diaper comes with two rows of snaps that allow for independent adjustment at the thighs and at the tummy and make for a beautiful fit! Not to mention, the snaps keep C's prying hands from pulling off her diaper and keep the diapers from sticking to each other in the wash.

While Apple Cheeks diapers may be considered high-end, their package pricing is still extremely competitive and affordable. You can buy them online or in local stores (check out their retailers here). And, pretty soon, Kelly's Closet will be carrying them, too!

Thanks for hosting the giveaway- I had never heard of this brand before. I really like the names for the colors that Apple Cheeks makes. :) I was torn b/t Mrs. Robinson & Raspberry Sorbet but I think I'll go w/ the Raspberry Sorbet b/c I do not have a diaper that color. :) If I win, you can leave a comment on my blog & I'll email you back. Thanks, again!
