Fluffy Friday: Charlie Banana OS {giveaway!}

I love trying new diapers… it’s one major plus to writing SEBG because I love to try all different types of cloth diapers that are on the market that I probably otherwise wouldn’t get the chance to try!

This is true of the Charlie Banana diaper that I’m reviewing today.  Snaps became my best friend once Sophia figured out how to undo the aplix diapers.  But with Moreaya, I primarily reach for my aplix.  I just think it’s easier to get a good fit and faster to put on her, well, until now!

When my One-Size Charlie Banana diaper arrived, oh my!  The print!  I just absolutely love the Robot Girl print on the Hot Pink!  It’s so adorable in real life and I probably would have never taken a chance on the print otherwise, but I’m super glad it’s the one we got!

The adjustment of Charlie Banana’s are a bit different than any other OS on the market.  It’s hidden inside the diaper, which is nice and is less bulky than snap-down OS diapers, but they use a “bra strap design” sizer.  It’s super easy to use and you simply slide the metal part to which letter “S, M, L”.  This works so much easier than a numbered system, I think AND you only have one on each side to adjust.  I’m actually using it in the middle of the Small and Medium setting for Moreaya right now and we’ve yet to have a leak in this diaper {and we have quite a few leaks from some of our others} because I’m getting such a good fit!

The OS comes with 2 microfiber inserts and we’re only using the smaller one right now.  I know a lot of companies are switching to minky, and although I love the trimness of minky, I still think the microfiber absorbs and holds more.

This diaper is the first diaper I reach for if it’s clean and I’m most definitely going to be adding a couple more to our stash!

Charlie Banana also sells disposable inserts that can work with this shell, as it has a large flap at the front {where you stuff the inserts} that can hold the disposable insert in place.  I haven’t tried that feature of the diaper, though.

Don’t forget to check out Jenny’s Fluffy Friday post this week… she’s reviewing {and giving away} a set of Blissful Booty Cloth Wipes & Wipe Water!!!

Buy It:  The Charlie Banana OS diapers range from about $19.88 – $21.88 depending on where you buy them.  You can purchase straight from the Charlie Banana Website or at a variety of retailers!

Win It:  One super lucky So Easy Being Green reader is going to win their own Charlie Banana One-Size cloth diaper!

  8. I haven’t tried them yet, but I like the black and the shanghai green.

  9. I like the “under construction” print. I’m wondering how the front opening would be with a boy.

  10. Cutie is cute! I’ve tried CB but didnt’ really like the fit then. So I sold it on a swap. i’d like to try it again though.

  11. The under construction is my favorite print. I haven’t tried them but have really been wanting to!

  13. I like the Lovey & dovey on yellow best! I’ve never tried CB but we’ve been using mostly CCD, since we can get those off ebay for a really cheap price.

    Wow after this I think I’m in love with robot girl. How cute!! I think all their colors are amazing. I kind of want their yellow or orange diapers too.
    I haven’t tried Charlie Banana, but I’d love to try them out. I always thought it was the same as fuzzibunz, but I love that the back elastic is so thick on charlie bananas. They just seem a little higher quality in general.

  15. Christina C says:

    I love “Handsome”! Never tried CB before but really would like to!

  16. Julie Ghrist says:

    I LOVE the Girl Robot print, so bright and the robots are adorable.
    We have 2 from the 2010 collection (Orbit and Black) and 2 newer prints from 2012(Red Petit Coeur on Green and Blue petit Coeur on Yellow). I love the new version of the Charlie Banana. The new slide adjustment system is much easier than the older elastic and button method. I have also found that the inserts seem to be holding up much better than the originals.

  24. Lexi Conklin says:

  30. I haven’t had a chance to try them but would love to :) My favorite print is the Cutie.

  34. I have on Charlie Banana OS. I love it. Great fit and super absorbent. I wonder how the sizing elastic will hold up.. and a I found it a little finicky the first time I tried to resize. But it seems to hold well and isn’t actually very difficult. My favorite print is the Handsome, or colour is black.

  35. Jennifer B says:

    Really want to try this brand! I’ve had my eye on the red petit coeur on hot pink.
