An Applecheeks Swim Diaper Review

Last summer, we were introduced to the Applecheeks swim diaper for the very first time. We got a size 2 in Corsica and put it to use almost right away. Here's what Applecheeks has to say about their swim diapers:

"AppleCheeks™ Washable Swim Diaper is a super soft, super cute swim solution! As we know you LOVE the styling of the AppleCheeks Envelope Cover, we've translated the design to a product that really works for the pool, the lake or the beach!

Two layers of 100% polyester Canadian-milled mesh allows water to comfortably move through the diaper while keeping any solids, should they occur at an inopportune time, out of the water. Our diaper is completely designed and manufactured right in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, just like the rest of our AppleCheeks™ line.

And our signature two-size system with snaps at the waist and separately adjustable snaps at the thigh means your little one is guaranteed a comfortable, long-last fit.

Size 1 fits approximately 7lbs - 20lbs

Size 2 fits approximately 18lbs to 35+lbs."

When we first put it on, I noticed how trim it was, even with the infant sized prefold I put in it to catch any pee before we got to the pool. Plus, even at the lowest recommended weight for the size 2, it fit him really well. There was no bagginess in the leg holes like I thought might happen since he had (and still has) no butt coupled with thin limbs.

And, true to form, Ian tried out his swim diaper almost right away, placing a deposit that tested the swim diaper's abilities. And it passed! Lol.

So since we got a size 2 last year and Ian is only up to about 25 pounds this year, we'll be able to use our swim diaper again this year! That's a huge plus for me! It feels like the swim diaper is free to us this year! I know it's not, but it sure feels that way!

Despite the difference of about 8-10 pounds between last year and this year, plus several inches in height, his swim diaper fits him very well. Thanks to the snaps, which I love, our Applecheeks still looks brand new and will adjust to just the right size for him. I'm looking forward to lots of days this summer hanging out in our local water park and even doing some swimming in a pool.

Thanks for the review. I've been wondering about the AppleCheeks swim diaper. Is it just mesh on the inside and mesh on the outside? BTW I like the idea of slipping in a prefold or something on the way to the pool.
