Goodbye Disposable! Hello CLOTH! Thankful For Cloth Month Kickoff with Charlie Banana! + a GIVEAWAY!


It is now officially the
2nd Annual Thankful For Cloth Month
at The Bee Hive Buzz!




We are kicking off the event with Charlie Banana's


We are new to Charlie Banana but I have seen mamas going bananas for these cloth diapers so I really wanted to get one of these on my daughter's bum!  I wanted to know what all of the hype was about.  So the folks at Charlie Banana sent us the prefect diaper.  If you're not familiar with this event, Thankful For Cloth Month at The Bee Hive Buzz is a month long celebration of cloth diapers and other cloth and ecofriendly family products.  Making the decision to use cloth diapers was one of the best decisions that I ever made as a parent and a decision I will always be proud of.  Cloth not only saved our budget when we couldn't afford anything else, but its also great for our planet, great for our budget, its ecofriendly, green and healthy for my baby!  So for November, in the spirit of giving thanks, we are putting cloth in the spotlight and featuring some amazing cloth diapers and ecofriendly products!

Now onto the fluff!



This my friends, is the Charlie Banana One Size Cloth Diaper!  There are lots of things I love about this diaper. 



Its got a super soft inner lining which my daughter loves.  Shes little Miss Picky Pants!  Shes a little particular sometimes about the lining of her cloth diapers.  Shes got sensitive skin and sometimes....well....linings get her buns feeling a little itchy scratchy if the lining isn't soft.  She loves the Charlie Banana lining!

The other cool thing about these diapers is the sizing option.  Charlie Banana does carry sized diapers but the One Size diaper is adjustable with leg elastics inside the diaper instead of having a snap down rise like many once size diapers. They are quick and easy to adjust.  Just slide the elastic to your desired tightness and you're ready to go. 


 I love diapers that can be used from birth to potty learning.  We had a tight budget when we first started, so being able to buy a diaper to put on my newborn and be able to use that same diaper until my kid is 30+ pounds was ideal for me!  But thankfully, Charlie Banana has lots of options for different preferences.  The One Size fits babies from newborn to about 30 months or 35 pounds.


The fit is great on my daughter.  Since I can adjust the legs to perfection, we don't get red marks from being too tight and I can adjust them so that we don't have any gaps.  And the fit around her tummy is nice and snug and comfortable.  The reusable microfiber inserts are absorbent and we haven't had any leaks, not even at night.


The One Size diaper comes with 2 inserts and stuffing is easy with the large opening in the front.


I really like the placement of the front snaps as well.  Depending on how diaper snaps are placed, I've found that we have issues with wing droop on some.   But the extra snap where the arrows are below, helps keep the wings in and keeps the rest of the diaper fitting snug.  I've had some diapers that don't have this snap layout and can definitely notice a difference!


Be sure to check out Charlie Banana online to see their other styles and prints.  You can purchase Charlie Banana cloth diapers on their website and other great online retailers such as Nicki's Diapers!
You can also connect with Charlie Banana on Facebook and Twitter!

  10. This is a great article. I’ve read in many
    other places before that but
    I did not get this type of effective and
    more useful text. It is really important now to
    vary your anchors as this seems more natural to user.
    This article helped me a lot to understand information.

  29. I would honestly keep it. We have Charlie Bananas now. They're my husbands favorite diaper. They're incredibly easy to use and have the cutest prints. When our son was smaller, they were the only diaper we could get to fit him well (skinny waist and verrry chunky thighs). I've been wanting this print for quite awhile!!
