Ilana is co-owner of AppleCheeks Reusable Diapers and mother to three girls - Azure, Phoenix and Ione. She's also the owner of A Jaded Mama, a blog about mothering, small business ownership and all things green. When she's not busy coming up with new product ideas, working on social media campaigns and co-managing the business, you'll find her doing handstands, doing pull-ups, co-sleeping, raising school-aged children and reading.

Amy is the other co-owner of AppleCheeks Reusable Diapers and mom to three boys - Bailey, Davray, Sacha, and to beautiful DAUGHTER, River. She's a dedicated and very attached parent and just adores the company of her enormous, gorgeous boys. When she's not busy juggling the company finances, talking on the phone with suppliers and trying to talk Ilana down off a cliff, you'll find her very involved in her community activities and enjoying the great outdoors.

Natalie is the Social Media Coordinator for AppleCheeks Reusable Diapers. You can find her on @AppleCheeksDipe on Twitter or Instagram or the Facebook page! Natalie is the mother of three children - Elinor (6), Grant (3) and Roslyn, who will celebrate her first year of life - fully diapered in AppleCheeks - in December! If you follow her personal account on Instagram @justgnatty, you'll know that she's just a little obsessed with taking fun photos of these diapers and has an outright addiction to MiniZips.

Social Stuff



We want you!

One of the reasons we've decided to go ahead and launch a corporate blog is because we want to be able to get our customers/readers more involved in our content. Afterall, without you there is no us!

So we're putting out a call for guest bloggers! We're open to ideas but here are a few subjects we'd like you to have fun with:

1. Cloth diapering with AppleCheeks™ - your own experience

2. Being a working mom

3. Breastfeeding

4. Co-sleeping

5. Green living

6. Cloth diapering initiatives in your community (without mention of other brands, obviously!)

7. Being a mom

In return for your contribution, we'll provide full links back to your blog and be sure to reference it as much as we can in your post!

If you're interested in becoming a guest blogger, please use the Email Us form to get in touch!


AppleCheeks™ Week on Pickles and Paisleys

We had an ENORMOUS turnout for our first ever Twitter party. It was so huge, in fact, that we were trending in Canada! Apparently that means we were in the top ten subjects being talked about that night. Our hashtag was #applecheeks, if you want to check out what went on.

This party was organized by the uber-talented Katie of Pickles and Paisleys and Baby Bumble B. She's our South Carolina rep and as part of her efforts to raise awareness of our brand she organized an AppleCheeks™ Week on her blog. Every day of this week she had an event to celebrate us!

Tuesday was our aforementioned Twitter Party.

Wednesday was an AppleCheeks™ Wordless Wednesday Post.

Thursday (today) is giveaways sponsored by some of our amazing retailers.

Friday is the grand finale review and Little Bundles giveaways!

We'd like to extend our official thank you to Katie and Austin for all their hard work this week! Job well done, you two! We LOVE working with you!


Winners of the Limited Edition Orange Zest Little Bundle!

This is a good way to start off our new blog, don't you think?

Those of you who follow Ilana's blog, A Jaded Mama, were well aware of the contest she held to announce the release of the Very Limited Edition Orange Zest cover. The good news is that because demand for it far exceeded supply, a second limited run is in production and this one will be a little bit bigger, so those of you who don't win will have the opportunity to purchase from us or our retailers. We expect this second run to be available by the end of the month, fingers crossed!

In the meantime, however, it's time to announce the contest winners!

And they are...Brianne and Kendyl!

Congratulations, winners! We'd very much appreciate it if you'd test out our new Email Us form to get us your addresses and your size preference.

Stay tuned for a new contest to celebrate the launch of this blog!


Our Official Blog!

We've been operating for close to a year now under the guise of A Jaded Mama, Ilana's blog, and have decided that it's now time to leave her to her own devices and create a new space for all things corporate. So here it is the official AppleCheeks™ Blog!

We have great things planned for our new space, including new giveaways, product updates, company background info and lots of guest blogs on all things cloth diapering and natural parenting related.

We welcome you to our new space and welcome any comments or feedback!
