Applecheeks Cloth Diaper Review

Applecheeks Cloth diaper review - Running On Eagles Wings

It is no secret around here that we love cloth diapers and that one of our favorites is an Applecheeks Cloth Diaper. Emily introduced me to Applecheeks with their two-size system as a great newborn cloth diaper solution. Let’s just say – I got hooked FAST! We have continued to use Applecheeks cand they graciously sent us a Size 2 diaper along with a 2-ply & 3-ply bamboo inserts!

Applecheeks Cloth Diapers are a an envelope pocket diaper that can be used as a pocket or as a cover! This makes them some of the most versatile diapers available. Additionally, they come in two sizes to cover you full from Newborn to Potty Training. Hannah easily fit into her Applecheeks diapers before she potty trained  at 2.5. (and still can fit into them if the need were to arise!) I started using the size 1 Applecheeks diapers on Teddy at 1 week old and he is now wearing the size 2 diaper at 22 months! Update: He still fits in the size 2 pockets at 36 months!

There are a few different features about the Applecheeks cloth diaper system than your other pocket diapers. If you prefer to stuff your pockets like I do, the pocket is quite large and because the opening is about ⅔ of the way down the diaper, it’s quicker and easier to stuff. Because of the wide opening – you can stuff a lot more in the pocket – such as multiple inserts for night time diapering. My other favorite feature of the pocket opening size & location is that it allows your inserts to agitate out in the wash – meaning you don’t have to touch the yucky and can just toss it in the wash!

Applecheeks has some amazing rayon from bamboo inserts to go with their pockets. They have a 2-ply insert which is great for newborns and daytime use. Then there is a 3-ply insert which is great for toddlers, heavier wetters, and naps! The 3-ply easily lasts during Teddy’s 2-3 hours of nap time. Additionally, you can pair BOTH inserts in the pocket for nighttime diapering! The rayon from bamboo inserts retain twice as much moisture as a cotton insert!

One of the pretty & functional features of an Applecheeks cloth diaper are the ruffles on the edges! You may think why would you ruffle a diaper? Those ruffles give this diaper a great fit on ANY size baby leg from skinny to chunk! They are also spectacular at holding in poop. Applecheeks has elastic in the front as well to help reduce that ‘tummy’ leak from a tummy sleeper or a little boy who can go go go!

Applecheeks cloth diapers come in solids and they have quite a few fun prints they have made over the last few years. So if you like either or both – there are choices for you! Applecheeks are our main diapering system and will continue to be as long as we have kids in diapers!
