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!

Mommy and Me Monday | Toddler Foods Ep. 2

And Another week has gone and with it August! This past week was pretty typical around here. We hit up the gym every day and the kids had a BLAST in the bouncy house. We also went out to eat a couple times so I’m going to share a few pictures of our toddler foods when eating out methods! And there are some funny faces being made on a regular basis that are just too good not to share!

We went to our favorite taco store last week on Tuesday to celebrate Auntie’s birthday – Even though she isn’t here with us! Its her favorite place to eat at our house! I usually get nachos and so we have lots of chips – but the kids aren’t huge chips fans because they are so hard. The guy sat this place are super accommodating to toddler foods and so we order a plate of rice, a plate of beans, and some flour tortillas. They bring us plastic spoons and the kids ate almost all of the food! You can see their plates here and most of it was gone when we left! Serious win!

We also went to 5 guys burgers this week and the kids split a little hamburger. They both ate their half a burger plus a good bit of yummy fries! I realize it is peanut friendly so not great for everyone – but they definitely enjoyed it and Hannah asked for more after it was all gone!

We also get Jersey Mikes once a month – I get turkey on white bread and they both eat 1/2 of the kids sandwich (they split one).

We had some super fun play time and some good brother & sister play time. these moments make my heart so happy to see them having such fun with each other. Yes they fight at times. Yes Teddy actually but Hannah this week. But they have fun playing cars, coloring, and always with our Lillebaby carrier!
