Charlie Banana Cloth Diaper Review + Giveaway!




Sponsored review and Giveaway 

Time for a milestone
I have been on diapers for 2 years of my life. In the interest of saving money toilet training me, my parents toy with the idea of getting me off diapers when I turn 2. However they are not so keen on me creating a mess and were looking for ways to toilet train me.

Starter Set
Thank goodness for the good people of Global Outsource Solutions. They had decided to sponsor me a few models of Charlie Banana Diapers for me to learn to transit from Diapers to underwear.

About Charlie Banana
Charlie Banana is a Hong-Kong based company that produced eco-friendly diapers. These diapers comes in washable insert or disposable insert options. The cloth based diaper prevents diaper rash, it healthy, eco-friendly and not to mention cost savings. Normally it takes me 1 week to use my packet of diapers. With Charlie banana, we have cut down the usage of disposable diapers by half. In other words, more savings for Daddy to buy me some more toys!

Hurrah!

We have a pack of 6  ( SGD 199) - one size starter kit.
It comes with 12 inserts and 6 diapers. The inserts can be reusable and disposable. The Disposable inserts are mainly use for those outdoor trips where it is more convenient to dispose after use.
Diaper System with disposable/reusable inserts
This is a diaper with options. It is recommended to use reusable inserts for normal everyday use at home. That way, you can be eco - friendly and save money on diapers as well. (You can do without the insert once the child get use to toilet training) I love the soft feel of the cloth diaper. The organic daipers also prevent nappy rash which is great for my sensitive skin!

The diaper set does come in sizes, however the one size system is preferred as it can grow with your child. One Size fits age newborn to 40 months or weight 3-16 kg.They come in various sizes and prints and we had the unisex pastel colours for the trial.

The Fashion Collection from Charlie Banana
If you are unsure about getting a starter kit, you may consider getting the diaper individually. They are available in various colours and it comes with 2 inserts. I loved the funky prints on The Fashion Collection .
One Size Cloth Diaper and Training pant
In addition, there is also the 2-in-1 Swim Diaper and Training pants . I think the swim diaper / training pants are excellent as they are convenient to use. The Swim Diaper is not bulky and have a waterproof, outer layer and a soft organic interior. This is much better compared to disposable baby swim diapers that are bulky and hard to remove. Moreover this functions as a training pant when I am out of the pool.

Charlie Banana can be found in Harbourfront Mothercare and selected mothercare outlets.
A special thanks to Global Outsource Solutions for providing the diapers for my use and review.
