Crappy Pictures has sponsors. Sponsors do giveaways. AppleCheeks is doing a giveaway! Yay!
Before I chatter on and on I’ll let them introduce themselves:
“AppleCheeks is a mom-owned and operated cloth diapering company that prides itself on having perfected the concept of cloth diapering! Manufactured in Canada, this system is not only simple and easy to use, but super cute to boot!”
**For us non-Canadian folks please use their Shop Local search to find a retailer near you. The search also pulls up online shops.**
The company is owned by two moms, Ilana & Amy. Ilana sent me this link to a video about them. I’m not sure if she actually wanted me to post that but I don’t care. I love seeing the real people behind businesses. Don’t you? (Speaking of real people, it is Ilana’s birthday today. Happy Birthday!)
They sent me two diapers, a black one and an aqua one. I knew Crappy Baby would be excited about the black color. (Or “colour” as Canadians say, which looks much prettier in writing. They win.)
He put them on. They fit him well. He said they were cozy. The big reveal…
Crappy Boy called them “ninja diapers” because clearly, if a ninja was going to wear diapers, they’d be these cool black ones. Right?
That pretty much sealed the deal of happiness.
So Crappy Baby does what he thinks ninjas do, which is to put his arms out at awkward angles and yell “I is a ninja!” at everyone. Pretty close.
Now onto the nitty gritty about the actual diapers…
See my brilliant illustration above? You can see the real diaper photo here that I crappified. Which you should look at so it actually makes sense.
/Diaper geekery will begin now.
1. These diapers have front elastic. Front elastic means no front moisture wicking on a tight shirt and it is an added shield against massive poop explosions. Those are super good things.
2. These diapers have an “envelope style” opening. This means Crappy Papa can’t complain that his “big man hands” can barely fit inside to stuff them. Believe me, he has tried this excuse. It also means that inserts don’t need to be removed before washing. They’ll fall out in the wash. I’ve heard this line before from other brands and it has never worked for me. So I tested it (three loads of laundry and counting) and it worked! That alone made me all warm and fuzzy inside.
Both of #1 and #2 are pretty ninja-like. At least in the sense that they are awesome and ninjas are awesome. That works, right?
Diaper geekery ends./
Here are real, actual babies wearing the real, actual diapers:
Awwwwwwwww. (Is that little one on the right standing in front of a hot tub in a greenhouse? Why didn’t I get an invite? I’ll even wear the diapers if that gets me access. Is it in Canada? You guys have all the cool stuff.)
Oh yeah, diapers.
Here are the actual AppleCheeks diapers:
The outer shell (they call it an envelope cover) is the same, but the inserts of the diaper are available in bamboo or microterry.

Lynsey: Baby #2 is coming in August and I’d love to try cloth diapers! These look great!
Melissa: I will be cloth diapering my baby that is due in May and I would love to try this brand. I really love that they’re made in Canada (another Canadian here), they come in great colours, and the fact that the insert agitates out in the wash is convenient.
