Many many months ago, Ilana, of AppleCheeks diapers was looking for blogger mommies to review her diapers. I had been drooling after her super cute St. Lucia diaper for as long as I could remember. So..naturally.. I jumped on the opportunity. I
stalked the mailman pretty much every single day waited sooo patiently for my diaper to come in the mail. It wasn't the St. Lucia. I was bummed. It was Coriander. BUT.. after trying on said diaper, I was in love! It looked great with Kylee's skin tone and it was really cute! My diaper came with a one size rayon from bamboo insert which can be folded into thirds (hello six layers of protection!) and a booster as well!
I am that cloth diapering mama who is scared of anything that is not bulky. I feel like bulk = a lot of absorbing action going on. So I was kind of nervous about using only the inserts I received. But.. I had a job to do.. must review this product. So after doing my prepping of the diaper.. I put it on her for nap. 3 hours later.....
NO LEAKING! I was amazed!
Another issue I have with diapering in general is the fact that my girl has some chunky thighs and that usually results in her getting red marks on them from the diapers. AppleCheeks? They passed the test! No marking on her legs!
One of the REALLY awesome things about AppleCheeks is that you can use the envelope cover as just a cover or as an entire diaper. So stuff it.. or don't stuff it.. and you still get great use out of it! But whatever you do.. don't unstuff it! (Because the inserts come out in the wash all on their own!)

My kid pees.
And in large quantity.
So I've been struggling to keep her in cloth during the nights. She's been peeing through everything I toss on her. I had actually switched her back to disposables at night. They were gross by the morning but they worked. Yes they weighed like 5 pounds and were just a mess of cold urine but I wasn't having to change sheets every morning. I started asking around about what people were putting on their heavy wetting toddlers at night and someone recommended Inspired by Mooky. Something new to me.. but I decided to check it out anyway.
I am SO happy I did. Pam makes some of the cutest and softest diapers ever! She made me a super cute monkey print with polka dots diaper. I was in love. The crotch area was too narrow though and I was super bummed. Fear not.. Pam had me send that diaper back to her and she made me a new one and shipped it back in just a couple of days! Now that is some great customer service! Let me tell you about this diaper..
It's a One Size AI2 Fleece Night Time Diaper and the outer part is made up of 2 layers of anti-pill fleece. The inner part of the diaper is organic bamboo raylon velour and it is SO soft! The soaker (WHICH I LOVE!) is 2 petal style (for quick drying) and each petal has 3 layers of organic bamboo raylon fleece topped with velour. It's trifold style and when folded over you get 16 absorbent layers!! This diaper does NOT require a cover.
What I really love about this diaper is that it stands up to my super-wetter overnight, doesn't leave ANY red marks on her at all, and it's super cute and VERY soft! It's made of quality materials and the work that goes into this diaper is so apparent! We have it on one of the lowest settings so I know this diaper is going to be sticking around until Kylee doesn't need diapers anymore! And then it will be passed on to the next sibling when the time comes. (Even if it's a boy.. because boys can wear cute polka dots!..And I'll be the only one seeing their bottoms at night anyways!)
Pam also carries longies, shorties, skirties, wet bags, changing pads, etc in her Cutzie Designs shop. So make sure you check out both of her shops on Hyena! Tell her I sent you!
