I’ve been looking at Charlie Banana Cloth Diapers for awhile now, so I was thrilled to be given the chance to try one out. I was sent a Charlie Banana® 2-in-1 Reusable One Size diapering system from their Fashion Collection in “Kate”. So adorable!
The Fashion Collection by Matthew Langille, are innovative, modern hybrid diapers available in six original designs including BlackBeary, Lovey and Dovey, Handsome, Cutie, Robot and Petit Coeur – all featuring punchy colors and an artistic, retro feel. This exclusive line of chic options features upbeat humorous prints, revitalizing the cloth diaper industry and making this Fashion Collection even more fashionable for baby. Each diaper print uses pops of color and quirky, lighthearted designs.
The Charlie Banana® 2-in-1 Reusable One Size diapering system can be used with either reusable washable inserts or disposable inserts. The diaper comes with 2 reusable inserts – One in size small and the other in Medium/Large. The Small is intended for newborns but can be doubled up with the medium/Large insert for extra absorbency.
The inserts themselves are thinner than all the other inserts I own, and I loved that they have a pretty (and well made) label on them which makes laundry time so easy.
This diaper features an amazing front pocket with a flap which easily became my favourite feature after a very messy dirty diaper. My fingers didn’t have to go anywhere near it! You can see it in the photo above.
Another feature I really love with this diaper is the size adjustment system. You may have noticed the lack of snaps all over the front, as a matter of fact, the front of the diaper has a nice clean face. That is because the size adjusts using a bra-strap like adjustment system hidden inside the super soft fleece lining at the leg holes.
This system works wonderful for Keira since she is such a lean baby and while she has some nice fat stores on her legs, they are still very small. Once adjusted for her properly, which was easy enough to do, I found the diaper fit nice and snug all over without leaving any marks on her.
I’m also really impressed with just how trim this diaper is on her! I think that has to do with how slim the inserts are as well as the lack of snaps. In any case, I just low how pretty this diaper is on her. It truly delivers fashion and function, something my little diva just loves!
