I've tried a few different types of cloth diapers since I started using them, but have pretty much stuck with my Bum Genius Deluxe 3.0s. However, a few months ago I was lucky enough to win an AppleCheeks cloth diaper and now I get to review it!
About AppleCheeks
AppleCheeks is a Canadian cloth diaper company created by two WAHMs, Illana & Amy, who wanted to show the world that cloth diapering is not like it used to be. Gone are the days of diaper pins and uncomfortable plastic covers! The AppleCheeks envelope cover and insert provide a unique combination of style and functioning. The form-fitting washable cloth diaper is praised for its trim design, which fits skinny legged babies, too!

My Thoughts
I was originally interested in AppleCheeks for two reasons: the vibrant and uniquely named colors, from Mrs. Robinson (navy blue) to Lemon Zest, and the slim fit since Liam is a preemie and is smaller than most babies his age. I had leak issues with other cloth diapers in the past because the legs were too wide. 
When my package arrived and we tore into it, I was immediately amazed at the softness of the inside of the cloth diaper and the insert! (The insert is made of rayon, bamboo and organic cotton fleece and the inside of the diaper is microfleece.) Not only did I love the feel of the diaper, but so did Liam. He grabbed the insert and didn't let go! I didn't have the heart to take it from him so, after 2 months, that original insert is still his. I had to buy extra inserts to actually try out the diaper! He prefers the insert over other blankets, stuffed animals, and other fabrics and carries it around everywhere! 
The fit? It is absolutely perfect for Liam. The rows of snaps allowed me to custom fit the diaper to Liam and the stretchy elastic contains messes completely! I've never had a leak, which is more than I can say for some cloth diapers! At first the inserts were not very absorbent, but Illana assured me that if I washed it a good 3 times before using it, the absorbency would increase drastically. Sure enough, the insert was plenty absorbent once washed a few extra times.
I love this diaper! It's easy to use and economically priced at around $18 USD.

Buy It
Make a purchase from the AppleCheeks Store. Also, there are several retailers listed on the AppleCheeks website.

Win It
One Lucky Winner Will Receive a AppleCheeks Mini Test, which comes with 1 envelope cover and 3 bamboo inserts, instructions & a reusable bag!
