I am always willing to try different cloth diapers, in fact, when I actually get excited when a new diaper arrives on my doorstep! As my boys get older, I am finding that their diapering needs are changing! My 2 year old is a heavy wetter at night and I am currently in search of a cloth diaper that will keep him dry! He is approximately 30+ lbs and not yet potty trained!
I have been working with Ilana over at Applecheeks and she was kind enough to send me a size 2 little bundle in Mrs. Robinson, and a roll of their new flushable diaper liners (center)! This diaper arrived super fast, and it is so beautiful and cute! See...
I couldn't wait to try it. It came with a brochure that gave detailed care instructions. So after washing and drying the diaper, insert and booster (right), I was ready to go! Now the great thing about Applecheeks diapers (in my opinion) is that they can be used as a pocket diaper, or they can be used as an All-in-two, with the insert simply lying on top of the diaper (no stuffing)!
I tried the Applecheeks first on my 2 year old son as a pocket!
Next I tried this diaper on my 10 month old son. He is a smaller baby, with thin legs and weighs approximately 17 lbs. On him I also used the Applecheeks diaper as a pocket, and also used the booster as he was wearing it for his nap. He usually sleeps about 1 to 1.5 hrs at a time. When he woke up he was wet. Again, after talking with Ilana at Applecheeks and doing some trouble shooting, we decided he was probably too small for the size 2, or I didn't fasten the diaper tight enough and I decided to purchase a size 1 for him to wear. I did try the diaper on him again though, not as a pocket, but as an AIO and had no problems. I also changed the setting, instead of the second to tightest fitting, I used the tightest fitting and it worked like a charm!
I tell you... Ilana over at Applecheeks shared with me a wealth of information! She is great at answering any and all types of questions that relate to Applecheeks, and cloth diapering in general.
Here are a few very useful how to videos that Ilana shared with me.
These videos are chock-full of useful information, so I am passing them along to you :)

I just love my Applecheeks. Overall, I would say they are very easy to use, easy to care for and very practical. Oh, did I mention how stinkin' cute your littles are when they wear em'?
