My second baby developed bad eczema when he was just a few months old. It was pretty bad on his buttocks. I decided to make the switch from disposable to cloth diapers in an effort to help his eczema. I bought a good supply of cloth diapers but wanted something to use when we were out and about that was disposable. I just didn't like carrying around a dirty diaper all day in the diaper bag. I heard about GDiapers through an online forum I belong to. I visited GDiapers.com and I really liked the concept and decided to give it a try.
GDiapers are available for purchase either online or at Babies R Us stores. I went to Babies R Us and bought a starter kit for $26.99. The starter kit comes with 2 Little G pants (covers), 10 flushable diaper refills, a flush stick, and a user guide.
G Diapers stand for green diapers. You can either flush, compost or toss the entire insert and the company claims it has little impact on the environment. The diapers will break down in the compost pile in 50 to 150 days and break down in a landfill in 90 days.
The Little G pants consist of a cloth cover with a snap-in liner. The liner is waterproof. You simply put the insert into the liner and put the diaper on the baby. The diaper closes with Velcro tabs but they are in the back to keep them away from baby's hands. The user guide, as well as online instructions, really helps you achieve the proper fit for your baby. It did take a few tries to get the hang of using the G Diapers but once I did, I had no issues.
You can use the outer cloth cover for a full day. You simply change the snap-in liner if there is a poppy diaper or just inset another insert into the liner for a pee diaper. The outer covers and snap-in liners are washable. It is recommended that you only put the cover into the drier though. The snap-in liner air dries quickly.
For our family we decided that we would flush the inserts. To flush the insert, you have to tear the insert (follow the dotted line) and make sure the entire inner core comes out, you then use the flush stick to break up, and flush. It is very easy to do but you need to follow the directions closely so as not to clog the toilet.
I was so impressed with the product that I decided to buy more covers and liners. We now use the G Diapers when we are out and about or if we need to use a diaper rash cream (you can't use diaper rash cream with most cloth diapers).
