The Cheeky Diapers line includes a one size cover, a one size pocket fitted, a one size pocket diaper and wetbags. More on the one size cover and the one size pocket fitted in my review below. The wetbags come in two sizes: 14"x 16" (holds 4-6 diapers) and 16"x 28" (holds 20-25 diapers). They come in your choice of zippered or aplix closure. The Cheeky Diapers line is fully customizable. You can choose the fabric that is on the diaper, the PUL color and the edging color.
The One Size Diaper Covers have a unique closure system. The cover has both snap and Aplix closure. The snaps are attached in the middle of the Aplix strip. The rise is adjusted by folding down the front of the cover when a row of snaps is. This is great because there is no limit to how small it can get (within reason).
The One Size Fitted Pocket Diaper has a side snapping closure. There are 5 adjustments for the rise. The pocket opening is in the front for easy removal. There is also a snap at the back of the diaper on the inside for an additional soaker. If you did not want to stuff the pocket you could simply snap the soaker in and lay it on top. There are also many different insert options. The diaper comes standard with a snap in daytime soaker that has 4 layers of Organic Cotton when folded. There is also a nighttime soaker that has 6 layers of Organic Cotton when folded.
Cheeky Diapers One Size Diaper Cover:
Cost: $15.00 (Click here to purchase)
Ease of Use: Fairly simple. All you have to do is put your desired fitted (try Cheeky Diaper's One Size Fitted Pocket) or prefold on baby and put the cover on. Adjust the rise, if necessary by folding the front down. Adhere the Aplix (snaps optional). It is the easiest one size cover to adjust. There is no snap down rise to deal with, just fold.
Fit: Incredibly trim on James. He has room to grow as well. I even used it over the bulkiest fitted I have and had great results. No red marks on the legs either. The cover worked well for Charlotte too. I liked this for overnights with both of them.
Care: The cover has a wipe down inner which means you can use it again if baby's diaper was wet. Just wipe down and let dry. Washing was a breeze. The cover has laundry tabs for the Aplix which stay down pretty well, I did have a couple of diaper chains. I think an additional snap on the cover near the laundry tabs would be great. That way you could snap the wings to the cover and no more worries about diaper chains.
Material: PUL inner with designer cotton fabric on the outside. To prevent wicking the cover is edged in PUL.
Favorite Feature: The closure system.
Overall Opinion: Beth has really worked hard to build a great one size diaper cover. Her research and development has paid off by producing such a unique product. The fold down rise is easier than it's snap down counter parts. The snap/velcro hybrid closure is sure to please. I do find myself wanting to snap it though.
Cost: $20.00 (Click here to purchase)
Ease of Use: The pocket for this fitted is a little narrow. I have small hand so stuffing the pocket wasn't a problem for me but I don't think my husband could do it. The diaper is a basic side snapping design with 5 rise and waist settings so it's easy to navigate. I found that when using the smallest settings (bottom two), the diaper became really bulky and awkward to stuff. Charlotte is chunky so these settings got little use. The diaper seems to be easier to use on the larger settings.
Fit: James (2 years old, 32 lbs) is on the first snap down rise setting and the second waist snap so he has room to grow. I found that I never needed more than one insert (this organic cotton is super absorbent) so the diaper was always very trim. Then again, neither of my kids are super soakers.
Care: I always unstuffed the pocket before washing but I wonder if you leave the insert in the pocket if it will agitate out in the wash. I'll do a test and see. The diaper dries quickly and looks brand new (even with daily use). There is no pilling on the diaper but there is on the cotton fleece insert.
Material: Designer cotton knit outer. Organic cotton fleece inner. Choice of Organic cotton fleece, organic cotton french terry or microfleece topping for liners. Resin snaps.
Favorite Feature: The Organic cotton next to baby! No worry of pesticides against baby's skin!
Overall Opinion: I loved being able to throw this one size fitted pocket diaper in my bag along with the one size cover when going out on short trips. That way whatever kiddo needed a change I had a diaper that would fit them. I do think this fitted would be better for babies not in the newborn stage (maybe 8 weeks +). I love all the absorbency options and the organic fabrics!
