FLUFF BUTT: gDiapers

One of the biggest things to hit
the cloth diapering community lately.
A cute cloth diaper with flushable insert?!?!
Definitely wanted to give it a try!

starter kit


"gDiapers, which stands for green diapers, consists of a washable, cotton outter little gPant and a plastic-free biodegradable diaper gRefill. They are made of breathable materials just like sports clothing. So, babies stay dry and happy and are far less likely to get diaper rash."



When I decided to make the switch to cloth diapers, and alerted my husband/mom on the decision, they both freaked! They didn't want any part of it. Then I found gDiapers. I explained what they were and my mom said she's give them a try. Then I contacted gDiapers. Michelle was awesome enough to send me 2 little gpants, a package of gRefills, and a starter kit!

I used them right away. I love how SUPER trim they are. And very easy to use. I also had my mother use them with Caden while she babysat. While she said that they were very easy for her she is still not fond of any type of cloth diaper.


Overall, I really liked the gDiaper. Having the tabs in the back is kinda weird for me right now... but will probably be super AWESOME when he starts taking diapers off. The only complaint I have is that Caden seems to soak the refill rather fast. I have to change him at least every hour while he's in gDipes. The good thing is that they offer a cloth insert. We've been using prefolds in them and that also works great.

grateful red little gPants


I recommend the diaper if your looking for a very trim option. It's a great cloth diapering option for vacation or running errands. You can use the cover multiple times and throw away or flush the insert which means less diaper laundry for you!

Not only was gDiapers awesome enough to supply me with 2 little gPants, a package of gRefills and a starter kit... They are also giving one lucky reader the chance to try out gDiapers with their very own starter kit!

I have not used the gdiaper yet. I would love to try them. I would love to try the tabs in the back. My little guy always turns over and maybe this way I will be able to get the diaper on better. Also, I like options for going out of the house.

I'd like to try them because they are totally different... somewhere between cloth and disposable. I bet my husband (a cloth skeptic) would like the ease of them too.

I have not tried any cloth daipers yet. My baby is due in May! I like that you can take out the insert and use the cover a few times before it needs to be washed.

I would love to try G-Diapers! I just had a baby(9 wks ago) and I want to cloth diaper but have to admit they are a little pricey and I am a little intimidated, but if I won these I would surely figure it out and probably buy more!! I just used disposables with my oldest, who is 6 now and I would love this time around to atleast try them. I hope I get that chance!

I have never tried reusable diapers before since I don't own a washing machine but as we're expecting another baby and planning on moving to a place with a washer dryer I would love to try gdiapers since they are the cutest looking reusable diapers and it's getting quite expensive with twins in diapers imaging adding a 3rd!
