Featuring Apple Cheeks! CLOSED

I thought I already owned my favorite cloth diaper. When I got the chance to review an Apple Cheeks diaper, I was fairly certain it would become just one of the stash, but never expected to LOVE it more than my other diapers!!!! This diaper is completely different than any of the other brands we own and it is definitely my new favorite. I don't really even need to buy more diapers but I am planning to buy a few more of these!


Here is a brief description of an Apple Cheeks cloth diaper...

Apple Cheeks is a 2 sized envelope diaper. Ladybug is wearing the size 2 which will last through the end of diaper days. It is an envelope (pocket) diaper BUT you do NOT have to remove the insert if you use it this way-the insert falls out in the wash!!!!! YAY!!!! Although it is an envelope diaper, you can also use it as a cover/insert system, laying your insert right on the top of the dipe and reusing it until the cover is soiled (we used it this way 4 times)!! I LOVE the options of how to use this diaper, although I was a bit confused at first! Here is a great video tutorial of how this diapering system works.

Click to enlarge this awesome photo with details about this amazing diaper...


What I love...
  • The Mini Test I received came with a size 2 cover, and 3 hemp inserts. I LOVE the hemp inserts and am now using them in other diapers as well!
  • I used the cover and 1 hemp insert laid on top-3 times, and then put a microfiber in the pocket...then finally threw the cover in the laundry bag! It was awesome! 4 uses from one cover! AND for the final wear, I did NOT remove the insert and it DID fall out in the wash!
  • The diaper fits Ladybug so well and snug, but not tight. It is adorable and I can tell it will grow well with her.
  • The snaps are great, easy and snug. There are 2 rows, giving a great fit at both the belly and the leg.
  • Elastic at the front and back...great for containing the mess!
  • The color!!! I finally got a teal (St Lucia) diaper!!! The other colors are so beautiful too, I have no idea how I will decide when I do order some more!
  • The customer service I received while working with AppleCheeks was awesome-I am very picky about this and it can make or break a company in my mind.
Yes this diaper is priced a bit higher than the others I like, specifically because you buy the cover and the inserts separately (unless you get the Mini Test). At first I was put off by this, but now I understand. You do not need as many covers with this system, buying 1 cover and several inserts is cheaper than buying several diapers that come with inserts. In my opinion it is worth the extra cost, if you're looking for a great diaper. All in all it isn't really extra cost, it's just a different way of diapering.

Apple Cheeks is based in Canada but they have retailers all over the world, you can find one near you by looking here.

Apple Cheeks is giving one of YOU a Mini Test, which includes a cover and 3 inserts (bamboo or hemp)!!!

MAMA BEAR said...

Hi Carisa
I'm hoping I can be included in this giveaway. I don't think I see anything on your post about *American residents only*.

After looking at the colours, I would have to choose lemon zest.

I don't have any yellow dipes because I'm not very fond of most yellows out there, although this one looks rich and solid.

MAMA BEAR said...

We are a cloth diapering family.


My little miss wears mostly Happy Heiny pockets regular and snap dipes and I have a few cotton prefolds with Thirsties covers.
I like snaps. But I love how Thirsties covers can be re-used and don't leak around the gussets.

MAMA BEAR said...

I would take a photo of my little miss in an Apple Cheeks for sure.
Gotta support Canadian companies.

I am indeed a cloth diaper user but have never tried applecheeks. I use fuzzibunz and bumgenius. I have never heard of the idea of putting the liner on top rather than in the pocket. I have some extra inserts and may try that with my current diapers tomorrow!
