Charlie BananaŽ 2-in-1 Reusable One Size diapering system uses a no-slip, bra-strap design, making it possible to change the diaper from small to large in one easy step.

Dads can comfortably fine-tune thier adjusting abilities by using the clever, mom and dad friendly One Size Cloth Diaper System and quickly become cloth diaper connoisseurs. The patent-pending One Size design is user-friendly and adjusting the cloth diaper from X-Small to Small to Medium to Large involves one easy step.
Charlie Banana One Size cloth diapers are a 2-in-1 system. You can use washable inserts or disposable inserts. It's a diaper with options!
We recommend you stuff the inside with reusable inserts. However, we know there are times when you need to be able to use a disposable insert, for instance while traveling or when leaving your child with someone unaccustomed to cloth diapers.
Here is how it works
A newborn baby needs to be changed every 1-2 hours; therefore you will need plenty of diapers in your rotation. Some parents prefer to have fewer diapers and wash daily, others like the ease of having more diapers and spreading out the washes.
Tips for changing at home:
Take 2-3 organic wipes and pass them under running warm water or dip them in a bowl of water kept at your changing station.
Remove the diaper and wipe the baby clean (or, if you prefer, take the baby to the sink and gently clean the baby under running water). Pat baby dry with a dry wipe.
Put on a fresh diaper, fold the dirty diaper, and store it in the diaper pail.
Most of the solid will come off easily from the fleece. Below are a few options to remove any stubborn residue:
- Use some toilet paper to wipe it clean
- Your diaper will be free of any residue very easily.
You can soak your diapers in a wet pail and rinse them off lightly before washing or you can simply throw them in your dry pail or the washing machine. We recommend adding a bit of plain white vinegar to the wash and a few tablespoons of baking soda to help eliminate any smells on a weekly basis.
