Cloth Diapering

Charlie Banana OS pockets

Re: Charlie Banana OS pockets

  • Not a fan. IMO you can find a much better diaper for the same price or cheaper. Not only are they overpriced, they're cut too trim for my baby, I don't like the bra-strap leg adjustment, front pocket is yuck.  Cute prints though.

  • I have one. I liked it at 1st but after I tried BG's I hate my CB. As PP said it is very narrow which means adding extra absorbency it difficult. I added a bamboo to the MF insert and it made the legs gap on DS. The diaper also looks really worn on the inside after only being used a couple of times. DS2 loves the print so he wears it as underwear now but we do not use the CB as a diaper anymore. BG's are cheaper, hold up better and work really well for us.

  • I think they are overpriced.

  • I had a ton of Target gift cards, so I bought a dozen CBs. Thankfully, they work great for us. I love that they are trimmer, and I haven't had any trouble adding extra absorbency (except for at nighttime...and that's another ballgame). The bra-strap adjustment is kind of a pain, but it's not something that you have to adjust often. I agree that they are overpriced, but it is convenient that Target carries them if you don't want to do a separate registry on Amazon or at a CD store.

  • They are the least favorite in my stash. The part where the insert goes is too narrow, they are hard to stuff, I don't like the way they adjust around the leg. Definitely way overpriced for what you get.

  • I didn't mind them. They weren't my favourite by far, but I liked that they were trimmer. Once I had to double stuff the diapers I didn't like them as much since their inserts are so much more fluffy.

    This! I've overall been really happy with my CBs.
  • I'm pretty new to CDing but I really like my Charlie Bananas. They fit my little girl really well and they are super cute. I purchased boxes of 6 for $84 by combining codes on diapers.com so IMO they aren't too pricey. Also, I have only used two types of CDs so I'm no expert but they are working well for us!
