How 2 in 1 Works

We love cloth diapers for their many benefits. But after speaking with many cloth-diapering parents, we realized they were still buying disposable diapers for certain occasions, such as holidays and drop-offs with grandparents.

Charlie BananaŽ diapers are a 2-in-1 reusable diaper system. Its a cloth diaper but with a smart front panel that gives you the option of tucking in a disposable pad for those special occasions.

With Charlie BananaŽ diapers, you get the best of both diaper worlds!

Easy Reusable Diapering System

step1   step2   step3

Using reusable insert inside
Stuffed inside the pocket - place one or two reusable inserts inside the flap opening and tuck them in nicely. Our smart front flap makes it easy to readjust the inserts inside the diaper.


Using reusable insert on top
Our cloth insert has a new upper layer made out of soft fleece. This gives an option to lay out the insert on top of the diaper shell with a fleece layer against the baby’s skin. If the insert is on top, it is still being held in place by a smart front panel. You can put one reusable insert inside the pocket and one on top.


Using disposable insert
Place one disposable insert on top of the fleece and secure it into the front flap. This will secure the disposable insert. Some parents like to place one reusable insert inside the pocket and disposable insert on top of the top layer fleece. This allows for a quick change.

Buckle System

step1   step2   step3
Adjust the elastic strap to the desired size setting and ensure that the top part of the elastic strap has been fully pulled downwards between the first and second bars.   Pull the elastic strap through the opening area between the second and third bars from under the buckle upwards.

  Tighten the buckle and hide the excess elastic strap into the corner pocket next to snaps.

Here is how it works:


If baby is over 3 months old, always put in 2 inserts for the maximum absorption.
2. We recommend that you use Charlie BananaŽ liner, by simply placing the liner on top of the fleece, then once the baby has soiled the diaper, lift the liner and flush it.
The liner facilitates the removal and the cleaning of solids, it makes it EASY!


Adjust the bra-elastic inside the diaper to the desired size.
Place baby on a diaper.
1. Pull the front of the diaper and snap the leg snap first. Make sure it is snug and tight with no gap at the leg.
2. Snap the upper snaps as you wish, so baby is comfortable.
Tips: Try on your wrist to feel how comfortable it feels even on a tight setting as there should be no gap.


When baby needs a change due to urine only, simply remove the diaper and place in Charlie BananaŽ laundry hamper. If baby has a dirty diaper, shake the waste into the toilet and place in the laundry hamper.
If using the liner, simply lift it and flush it in the toilet. Rinse your diaper first or throw it into the wash directly.
Tips: You can also use our disposable inserts for occasional use too.


Rinse any residue and store in a dry or water pail. Place in washing machine and select cold or warm wash to a maximum of 40C. Use an eco-friendly detergent, only half of the recommended amount is needed. Do not use fabric softener. Only chlorine bleach when needed. Tumble dry LOW or hang to dry. Do not iron. Do not use cream or ointment, unless you are using the disposable insert.
Your detergent needs to be residue-free. Charlie BananaŽ Laundry Detergent is ideal for your diapers and for your entire family's laundry.
