Fluffdom Express: Charlie Banana {CLOSED}

http://www.charliebanana.com/images/products/nap_v1.png
Charlie Banana - The one diaper that has it all... okay, except for aplix tabs. But as long as the snaps don't get stuck in the dryer, I don't mind! {smile}

Charlie Banana Size Diaper Is Hybrid. 
While traveling, or for any occasional situation the ability to us a disposable insert is sometime necessary. You now have both options. When using Charlie Banana you can use reusable insert or disposable ones. Of course we recommend that you use the reusable inserts most of the time.

They have a One Sized diaper as well as sized ones: XSmall, Small, Medium and Large. Great colors and prints and attractive packaging. Of course, the fact that they also have a sizing guide on their packages for sized diapers is an added attraction!



Charlie Banana is a pocket diaper with the opening in the front. The one-size diaper have elastic that is adjusted with little buttons. On the largest setting for the elastic, the OS diaper fits J well. I asked a friend who also cloth diapers to try a OS on her 15 month old little girl. It fit very well on her, although it was a bit bulky with 2 inserts. She didn't have any leaks except for once when the insert rolled to one side.

There is wider elastic in the back and in the legs, which has been wonderful for keeping messes in. The other thing that is different about the Charlie Banana sized diapers is the three snaps on the tab and an extra snap to cross over for those skinny waisted toddlers. The Charlie Banana inserts also seem to be much more absorbent than our other microfiber inserts.
Another bonus is Charlie Banana makes and sells disposable inserts. These work great for protecting the diapers from any non-cloth-diaper-friendly cream. And for traveling since these are inserts. They're also very absorbent, even with just one.

Their color choices are fantastic also. They have your basic colors including black and they're adding in some prints which are adorable. I'm very excited about Charlie Banana diapers and look forward to see what else they'll add to their great line. Of course, I'm hoping for more of their great pocket diapers in larger sizes and perhaps a fitted diaper as well!

Right now Amazon and Baby R Us are the only places that carry Charlie Banana diapers yet.

WIN IT: Charlie Banana has offered one (1) very lucky reader of  Happily Southern their package of OS 2-in-1 diapering system.


***Giveaway CLOSED***
winner is: #104: Madeline
