Love Me A Cute Diaper! AppleCheeks Review & Giveaway

Oh, and it’s functional, too. But really? Super CUTE! I’ve been able to expand my fluff stash considerably since having Leyna, and it’s so exciting to try out new diapers. This size 2 AppleCheeks in cherry tomato (and the size 1 in raspberry sorbet before it) did not disappoint. It was the perfect outfit for a hot Memorial Day yesterday.

I love those little ruffles that stick out the back and around the legs! Turns out they’re pretty good at keeping messes in. Not a single blowout or leak in this diaper. Not one.

The inside of the diaper is super soft, lined with micro-fleece. The outer shell is extremely flexible and soft, too. In fact, I’ll admit that, at first touch, the diaper seemed a little… flimsy. As I mentioned before, though, it’s done a super job, has been really durable, and I actually love how thin and light it feels now.

A unique feature of the AppleCheeks pocket diaper is there is no need to unstuff! Really. I swear. I’ve never once taken it out of the dryer and found an insert crumpled down in one end, not clean or dry. I’m a little spoiled by it.

The only downside, for me, about AppleCheeks is they aren’t one-size-fits-all. There are 2 sizes. Size one fits up to 20 lbs, size 2 fits 18-40. Leyna was actually busting out of her size 1 by the time she was 3 months old. BUT, let’s all remember, she’s a beast. 99% of babies will not grow out of size 1 that fast.

And, as with all her cloth diapers, even the largest size is getting a little snug due to her massive leg chub. The good news is they sell these waist extenders, which add an additional 2 inches of wiggle room. While I’m really hoping we won’t need them until she’s much older, it’s nice to know we have that option to extend the diaper life a little longer for big kids.

A Little Bundle, which includes a cover and insert, is $28.71. Β Any order over $40 gets free shipping.

AppleCheeks wants to giveaway a $30 credit to their online boutique. (Please note the winner will be responsible for any remaining balance and shipping if applicable.)

  1. I would want to get an AppleCheeks in Cherry Tomato! We have no red cloth diapers. And my entire stash consist of FuzziBunz and we are starting to have trouble with them after only 6 months of use so I would love to try something new. πŸ™

  2. Jacquelyn MOll on

    I am SO glad you reviewed Apple Cheeks! I have been looking at them for weeks debating if I want to try some for baby #2. I didn’t know anyone that had tried them though, so I was nervous. Now, I just might go get one and see how it does! They are precious! I love forget me not. I am also wondering about their swim diaper!

  3. Oooo, it’s a close between Tomato and St. Lucia … I like my kids in bright colors! I think it would be fun to try a cloth diaper out at home, even though we can’t use them in daycare … this would be a great opportunity!

  4. jenny kennedy on

    we love AC! I love alot of the colors but I think our next diaper would be storm we dont currently have

  5. I would love to have an AppleCheeks diaper in storm. It is refreshing and clean with a hint of colour. It is unlike any diaper in our stash!

  6. I love AppleCheeks! We have 2 in our stash, and they are my first pick in the clean pile. St. Lucia is my favorite color.

  7. I love the color Forget me not!
    These look like great diapers and I would love to give them a try.

  8. I love the coriander or red color! we don’t know if we are having a boy or girl and that works for both!

  9. … and now I follow the AppleCheeks blog. Because I really want to win! πŸ™‚

  10. I am a google follower of the applecheeks blog-shan b
    sbaka3 at gmail dot com

  11. What adorable diapers! I’d never heard of them before. I love the blues – St Lucia and Forget me Not.

  12. Liked Apple Cheeks on Facebook, but in the interest of keeping it real, i LOVE THEM πŸ™‚

    My little Hendrix could rock the red!

  13. I added apple cheeks’ blog to my google reader (though really, who needs to feed my obsession more, I don’t even have a baby to put them on yet!)

  14. Raspberry is my all time favorite, but the current favorite that I DON’T own yet is Storm!

  15. Do I have to pick just one colour? St. Lucia, Chocolate, Storm, Mrs. Robinson… and that’s just because I have a boy…

  16. My favourite colour is St-Lucia! It’s such a pretty blue! But I’m excited to see the prints!

  17. My son has no problem rocking his older sister’s pink diapers but I don’t think he’d mind a dark chocolate one πŸ™‚

  18. Mrs. Robinson! What a great name for a color πŸ™‚
    I’ve been wanting to switch to cloth for some time and I’ve read and re-read your diapering posts… this might just be what helps me finally go for it!

    • Oops, I didn’t read down far enough to realize that ‘like baby rabies on facebook’ was supposed to be a separate post πŸ™‚

  19. I think St. Lucia is my favorite color, especially since this little stinker growing in my belly was stubborn and wouldn’t let us know the sex at our big ultrasound. It is a beautiful color and gender-neutral.

  20. Well, I currently have a St. Lucia and a Lemon Zest, but we have zero red diapers…so I’d love to try a Cherry Tomato!
