I’ve been toying with the idea of cloth diapers ever since Elliott was born over 2 years ago, but was never ready to take the plunge. I was scared of the extra laundry, the messes and the upfront costs.
About 6 weeks ago, I received an email from Apple Cheeks, asking if I would like to sample their diapers. I jumped at the chance, since a start up pack of re-useable diapers can be expensive and I wanted to make sure I liked them before agreeing to use them with our second child.
I received 1 diaper for Elliott, 1 swim diaper and 1 diaper for the new baby (who is due at the end of March).
Elliott was not a big fan of the diaper at first, but I think that was just because it was different. After he wore it a few times, it was just like any other diaper to him.
My only complaint about the diapers is that they can be a bit bulky, but other than that, they are great! I may consider using them for baby #2 (we do have a lot of disposables in the stockpile though, but I suppose we could use those for overnight and travelling).
Apple Cheeks has generously offered to giveaway a cloth diaper package (including 9 micro terry inserts, 3 envelope covers and 1 swim diaper – a value of over $100) to one lucky MrsJanuary.com reader.
