I remember hearing about AppleCheeks cloth diapers online way before I was pregnant. Their bright colors, fun names & cool designs stood out to me. Then I met the oh so fun & sweet Katie from AppleCheeks at BlogHer ’11. And even though Zach & Lucy were just a dream at that point, I looked forward to using the diaper she gave me on what I then called ‘future baby’.

Katie & I have kept in touch, and when I mentioned that the AppleCheeks Wild Child size one diaper was the first cloth diaper Zach ever wore & how much I loved it, she offered ever so kindly to send me two more. Because both babies needed AppleCheeks love & one to spare!

So excited to receive fluffy mail!

I chose the Cherry Tomato {hello NCSU red!} & Appletini envelope covers & bamboo inserts because they were cheery, bright colors that would also work on either baby. After multiple washes & dries {I both line & dryer dry depending on how much time I have}, the colors are still as fun & radiant as ever.

And speaking of washing & drying, I also love that the soft bamboo insert in this pocket/envelope style diaper doesn’t need to be removed for washing. Unlike some inserts that get stuck in the pocket, these easily slide out in the wash aka no Suz digging out pee soaked insert FTW! And the inserts slide in easily enough that husband’s hands can do it.

These diapers are very trim fitting which means that while they work great on my skinny babies’ legs & booties, they might not be as perfect of a fit on chunkier babies. Although they’ve grown well as Zach was 7 lbs in the top photo & around 12 in the photo below.

I’m hoping my babies will last in the AppleCheeks size ones {up to 20 pounds} for a while longer because they are honestly some of my favorite diapers they wear. It took me a little while to get these photos & this post done because they are a daycare top pick!
