I’m always talking about cloth diapering on the blog but I figured it was time to share what makes Charlie Banana* our brand of choice. I spent countless hours researching the top cloth diaper brands and landed on Charlie Banana for the reasons I’m about to share with you. Keep reading to find out how you can win a sweet prize pack from Charlie Banana*.
5 reasons why we love Charlie Banana:
1. Pocket Style
We love being able to add extra inserts at night for extra absorbency. We can really play around and customize our absorbancy! This also means they take less time to dry compared to an all-in-one style diaper because the insert comes right out of the pocket for washing and drying.
2. Adjustable Leg Straps
Without the overwhelming snaps that most one size diapers have, we are able to easily adjust the leg opening for our growing baby from new born all the way up to 35 lbs! That equals some serious savings! The rows and rows of snaps on the front of most one size diapers can be awfully daunting for those not familiar with cloth diapers.
3. Disposable Inserts
If you think you might want to do cloth diapers part time, this is a great option. Pop on a Charlie Banana Disposable Insert* and all you have to do is throw it in the trash and replace it with a new one at diaper changes. A great option for Grandma and Grandpa’s house or on long trips. We haven’t used this option yet but it was one of the things that drew me to this brand. I love having OPTIONS!

4. Back Elastic
This contains any messes that they would call a “blow out” in the disposable world. They are virtually non existent in our home. I’m confident that his diapers will hold in anything yucky all over the place. That’s some real peace of mind!
5. 1 Year Warranty
Charlie Banana backs their product up 100% and are confident you wont have any issues with your diapering system. What helps me sleep at night is knowing the brand we chose to diaper our son in wont let us down. and if for any reason we have any problems, I know all it takes is a quick email to customer service and you can chat with their experts about any issues you’re having.
Would I recommend Charlie Banana OS diapers?
No question. They have been so perfect for our lifestyle. We recommend them to all our friends who are watching us cloth diaper and are interested in starting.

Charlie Banana also sent us a package of their Double Sided Wipes* to try out. Before I had tried them I used baby wash clothes but now that I’ve tried these cloth wipes, we wont be using those ever again. They are soooo soft and fluffy. One side is super soft fleece that feels like velvet to the touch and the other side is organically grown cotton. They are very gentle yet still do the job. I put them on my Christmas list so I can start using them for myself as make-up removing wipes. Now I just have to decide if I want one with Charlie Banana blue stitching or hot pink! I give the cloth wipes an enthusiastic two thumbs up! I would feel really comfortable recommending these wipes to anyone who thinks cloth wipes are something they’d want to try out. Once you’ve made the switch to cloth diapers, cloth wipes are the natural next step. Recently I did a post about my very own cloth wipe solution recipe, which goes so well with these new wipes.
We LOVE Charlie Banana for so many reasons but one of the most important reasons: they work! They don’t leak, they are durable, and they fit so well on our guy! It’s a product I trust to me on my child 24/7.
