You may remember that when I first started this blog, I reviewed an adorable organic cotton onesie and some great pink leopard print BabyLegs from Sandbox Lane. Sandbox Lane is a one stop shop for all of your eco-friendly baby needs. From fabulous baby clothing, feeding supplies, eco-friendly toys and more, they really do have it all. Well, Sandbox Lane also carries a HUGE selection of cloth diapers from some of the absolute best brands on the market, including BumGenius, FuzziBunz, GroVia, DryBees, and even the newly launched Incredibum Bamboo Diapers! (I am an IncrediMom, so stay tuned for some upcoming reviews of this amazing line!)
But you know what else Sandbox Lane carries that I am super excited about? Charlie Banana's NEW line of Fashion Prints! With so many new styles to choose from, it would be impossible to choose just one. There are new bright prints for both boys and girls including their fun new Cutie and Robot Girl designs for that little princess in your life as well as more masculine choices like Handsome and Robot Boy for your little men-in-training. They even have an adorable, gender neutral black and white bear design called BlackBeary!
By now you already know I am a HUGE fan of Charlie Banana's One Size 2-in-1 diapers. Aside from the downright adorable appearance of these diapers, they are also THE softest diapers I have ever seen. The interior of the Charlie Banana OS Diaper is velvety soft, as are the included inserts. So soft, in fact, that my daughter likes to grab these diapers (when they're clean) and rub them all over her face. She even fell asleep snuggling these dipes! Yes, Charlie Banana diapers are really that soft!
Another great feature of this diaper is that it offers a 2-in-1 diapering system. You can stuff it with reusable inserts, which I prefer to do, OR you can tuck in a disposable pad when you're on the go! Charlie Banana OS Diapers have a front flap that you can tuck the disposable insert into, and then lay it directly on top of the fleece, making this a perfect Hybrid diaper! I have not personally tried using disposable inserts with this diaper, but it's nice to know that this is an option. Especially when leaving the kids with sitters who aren't exactly cloth-diaper enthusiasts!
I was thrilled to receive the new Charlie Banana Robot Boy print to review. I told Linda over at Sandbox Lane to surprise me with the print of her choosing since I have a boy and girl in cloth, and I couldn't have been more pleased! The Robot Boy print is absolutely adorable and fits my Xander's personality perfectly. The diaper is a gorgeous, vibrant sky blue and features whimsical little robots in an all-over print. Take a look at how ridiculously cute this is!
But looks and feel aside, let's get down to the important part: Do they work? In one word: Absolutely! Charlie Banana OS Pocket Diapers are fully adjustable to fit babies from about 8lbs all the way to potty training. So my Charlie Banana fits both of my children wonderfully. (I am including photos of Xander in this diaper to keep things gender appropriate, but even Sophie, my girly girl, loves this diaper, too!) Xander is 9 months old and weighs about 22lbs and Sophia is almost 2 and weighs about 27lbs. They even offer unique hip snaps to offer a snug, secure fit on smaller babies!
I tried this diaper for both day and night time use on both babies. For daytime use, this diaper is fabulous! Neither child experienced any leaks at all! I had similar results at night, although I did have to double-up on the inserts with my heavy wetting daughter. This is nothing new to me, though, as this is usually the case with any diapers I use for overnight purposes. Charlie Banana OS diapers offer great protection against leaks and keep messes in the diaper where they belong. On top of that, Charlie Banana offers one of the softest, best fitting diapers on the market today! With all the great prints and vibrant colors, Charlie Banana OS Diapers are a fashion statement all by themselves. We are quite happy with our Charlie Banana OS Pocket Diaper, and this has become a favorite in our normal diaper rotation.
