Another cloth diaper that I recently tried is AppleCheeks. It's a 2 size diapering system. Size 1 fits from 7 - 20lbs, and Size 2 fits from 18 - 40lbs. It can be use as a pocket diaper or as a cover. They sent me two size 2 to try for Emma and Libby.

I have been using this diaper for a month now and I really love this diaper. It fits Libby (she's 37 lbs) so well! It's probably the trimmest diaper I ever tried for her. It's as trim as gDiaper or even trimmer! She can wear her fitted or skinny jeans without any problem. When I first tried it with Emma she was about 19 pounds and the size 2 is a little big but it did not effect the performance of the diaper. Now that she gained more weight it fits her even better.
I prefer using the AppleCheeks as a pocket diaper when using it for Emma. The micro fleece liner keeps her feeling dry. But this diaper is not your regular pocket diaper. The pocket opening is almost at middle. It makes it so much easier to stuff. And you don't have to unstuff it when it's dirty. The inserts come right out in the wash. How cool is that? It washes well also and dries really fast. I always hang dry my diapers and both AppleCheeks cover and inserts dry the fastest out of all my diapers!
Because this is the only diaper that fits Libby so well, she uses it more than Emma. And since we are working on potty training her I prefer using it as AI2/cover so she can feel the wetness. I just lay the insert on top and when it's wet, I just change the insert and as long as the cover is clean, I reuse it. I really wish I have more inserts to use because I really love how this diaper fits her.
The inserts has two layers of ultra-soft 70% rayon from bamboo/30% organic cotton fleece. When the insert is folded to thirds you get six layers absorbency. At first I was a little worried that it was not going to hold a lot of urine because the insert is very thin even when folded to thirds but I was wrong. It's super absorbent! I never had any leak! It can even hold Libby's first morning pee! And I love how it dries fast compare to a microfiber inserts. They are super soft and does not get stiff even if I just hang dry them.
I also like that it has elastic in the back and front. Not only gives you a better fit but it helps contain blowouts. The elastic around the legs are gentle and does not leave any red marks. It does a great job containing all the mess. And I love the ruffle effect of the elastic! I think they are cute.
The cover cost about $19 and the insert is $8.83. It's a bit expensive compare to a pocket diaper. But that's because you get an organic cotton insert instead of a microfiber insert. You can actually save more if you use it as a AI2 system. But since it's a sized diaper, you will have to buy two sizes. However, if you hate having your babies in bulky diapers, AppleCheeks is definitely worth getting. Compare to other perfect size diapers, AppleCheeks only comes in two sizes, 1 and 2 instead of having small, medium, large.
