Review - Charlie Banana 2-in-1 Bamboo Diaper Liners & Wipes

            In case you haven’t seen, Target is now selling Charlie Banana brand diapers and some accessories! I’ll be honest, I have not tried any of these diapers personally, but I have heard good things about them from a friend. While checking out the products they are selling at Target the other day, I came across these bamboo diaper liners. I HAD to try them out!
            I can be rather picky and hard to please at times, but I honestly have NOTHING bad to say about these liners! First of all, they are very soft. They kind of remind me of dryer sheets in the way they look, just a lot softer. (And not full of chemicals, of course.) I love that they’re made from bamboo, but was also kind of surprised because they are flushable! Even better, they are super thin so it doesn’t add any extra bulk to baby’s diapers! This is a big plus for me because my poor child already has enough bulk going on down there. They come in a fairly compact box, so you still have plenty of room at your changing station or could even put them in your diaper bag. The box I bought has 100 pieces and I believe the price was around $10. I thought that was a pretty good deal considering I only use them for the anticipated “poopy time”. That brings me to my next perk of these liners.
            You’re probably wondering, “Ok, so how do they hold up?” Like I said, I don’t actually use the Charlie Banana diapers; I am still using prefolds, flatfolds, and covers. The liners still work nicely with these! With them being so thin, you are still going to have some poo to wash off of whatever diaper you are using if your baby doesn’t have really solid poops, but they do seem to help with staining. I like these because you can just toss these with the poop into the toilet and flush all of it instead of having a battle of poo vs. sprayer (or whatever method of diaper rinsing you use). ;) These can also be wetted and used as wipes, although I have not tried that. I highly recommend you check these out and give them a try yourself!

  1. I'm so excited to see cloth diapers in target now! I squealed with joy, lol. Thanks for the review!

  2. I saw these at Target the other day and was curious! Thanks for sharing and the tip about wetting the liners to use as wipes is great!
