Pocket diapers are my favorite overnight diaper. I love the flexible options I get with a pocket. I can stuff it with microfiber, bamboo…whatever I feel like. I personally have always done one layer of microfiber closest to baby (not touching skin as microfiber should never touch skin!) and then farther away a 2nd layer of hemp or bamboo.
AppleCheeks have a few different kinds of inserts. They offer a basic microterry insert that is super absorbent. This features a stay dry microfleece inside to keep baby with a stay dry feeling. This insert can be placed into the pocket of the diaper, or lay on top of the diaper and directly against the skin, the FLEECE side against the skin. The tag side is the rear/microfiber side and this should never touch your babies skin.
The other type of insert AppleCheeks offers is a rayon from bamboo insert. This is a flat rectangular insert. This is to be folded either in a tri-fold or in half, depending on how you want to use it. I always tri-fold mine and place it into the pocket of the diaper. You are able to lay this in the diaper (not in the pocket) and have it directly touch the babies skin. This insert is so cool. I have never seen another diaper company with a product like this. They are super absorbent and silky smooth. They offer 2 layer or a 3 layer option for this insert. I would recommend both thicknesses. I have even used the 3 layer in a tri-fold overnight without any leaks!!!! I am SO excited for this. Having a diaper double stuffed, like I mentioned above can cause a gap in the leg gusset for my son. His skinny legs can cause a gap with the extreme thickness. Now I can have a tight leg gusset and an overnight absorbent stuffing. Mind blown!
AppleCheeks Diapers: Size 1 fits from 7 – 20lbs, and Size 2 fits from 18 – 40lbs.
The pictures here show my son who is 20lbs and 19 months in a size 2. I need to have it on the tightest setting due to his skinny butt and legs.
Now that you have seen how super great these AppleCheek pocket diapers and inserts are, you have a chance to win your own!
