I've been doing research into cloth/reusable diapers, and am trying to go with the most economical option for us. So far, while they seem expensive to start, Gdiapers seem to be getting the best reviews. I think I'm slightly confused on the "flushing" aspect of it, though. If I'm understanding it correctly, you buy the Little Gpants and then either the Grefills or the Gcloth Inserts to go inside to .. erm, collect. And then you could potentially reuse the Little Gpants without having to wash them, just replacing the refill liner or the gcloth liner .. is this correct?
I've also read that using the basic gerber "cloth diapers" as a liner for Gpants works perfectly well. Is this *also* correct?
I've been reading the threads posted in this community and it seems Gpants aren't discussed often . . why is that? Have any of you tried them and didn't like them? Are they too pricey and if so, what is my research missing because I really haven't found anything less pricey?
And my issue with some of the other "regular" cloth diapers, maybe you guys can address .. it seems like those diapers/covers are a 1-use deal, then you have to wash them, whereas Gpants *seem* like you could potentially use the pant over again if your baby hasn't fully soaked through .. which means with those, you wouldn't need as many on hand before having to run a load of laundry, but with "regular" cloth diapers, you'd still have to have 10-12 on hand *per day*?
Total cloth-diaper newbie, here .. sorry for all the questions! Any advice would be majorly appreciated. :)
