Has anyone here used Green Line Diapers, or something like them? They are pretty new and small, but they look wonderful and so far I think that's the way I'd like to go with baby number two. I've only tried Kushies ultra and G-diapers with a cloth insert. I definitely prefer the G Diapers over Kushies, but like the style and unique features of the Green Line over the G diapers.

SOooo... my question really is; have you tried them (or something like them)? and is there any complaints about there out there?? cause so far I've heard lots of good things...

I know all of this was posted a very long time ago but in case anyone stumbles upon this and reads it now or in the future--the response above that suggests not using cloth for the first month of life because you go through so many diapers is absolutely absurd. I have used cloth on my daughter since the very beginning and a) never had ANY of those newborn blowouts I heard so much about and b) didn't have any leaks through the night. You have to change a disposable at the same rate as cloth because it gets all saggy and puffy and stinks like pee. If you have decided to do cloth, don't switch back and forth with disposables. What's the point? Usually the main reason for using cloth in the first place are usually for cost reasons (so why would you purchase cloth diapers and then disposables?).
And, just to stay on topic, I ordered a Greenline diaper and I am waiting in the mail for it (going on 2 weeks now) still. First off, it was supposed to be 25.50 plus shipping to the US but I am fairly certain she charged me an insane amount for shipping because it ended up being 35.50 and she swears that Canada Post doesn't give tracking numbers on light packages. A quick search of the canada post website says they do. So I haven't technically tried it yet but so far I am displeased with just trying to get the diaper.

I'm now using them all day and disposables at night. My daughter is almost 5months and chubby-legged. Getting the fit right takes some practice - watch their fitting videos, they have some good tips. I also use the fleece liners and have bought some regular micro-fiber clothes for liners. I find if the padding is too big or not close enough to the skin the edge of the diaper can get a little damp. However, my baby's sensitive skin does much better with these than disposables and I haven't had any poop leaks.

I am expecting my second order of diaper covers soonish and looking forward to it.

Hi there, I have used greenline diapers, and I like them a lot, but I've also had some problems! My first reason for choosing these diapers was because the company was small and very involved. It seemed like they answered everyone's questions online very quickly and they seemed to be genuinely interested in helping. The second reason was because they are stylish and I liked the idea of being able to use the cover for more than one change at a time. After receiving my diapers I followed the instructions for the first wash. I washed and dried my soakers seperate. The next wash as instructed, I washed everything together including one bubgenius diaper I was just trying out. The soakers dyed everything orange! I still wanted to make it work though and I didn't want to be a pain because I respected Natasha (one of the owners) and I wanted to continue to order from them. I sent an email asking some questions and mentioned that my items had turned orange, and she apologized and answered my other questions. But a while later I realised that cloth diapering is going to get very frustrating for me if I have to wash 2 tiny loads of laundry every other day instead of 1 regular one just so I could prevent more colour bleeding. So I wrote to the company asking them to replace my liners with their new ones or refund me the money for them because I was not happy with them. After that email Kyle (the other owner) wrote to me and seemed to suggest that I was frustrated because they upgraded right after I ordered so I just wanted the better product. But I knew before I ordered that they would be changing their liners, and I just planned to purchase more at that time. The only reason I wanted anything from them was that I didn't want to risk dying anything else orange. I was quite insulted by Kyle's response to me, so I emailed back saying that it's one thing for him to refuse to refund me, and quite another for him to suggest that I was just trying to get a better deal. I also mentioned that it was unfortunate for him that he was treating me poorly because since hearing about the diapers I have been a very talkative customer and have already sent friends to them who have also purchased. I'd been spreading the word possitively about them, but now I will make sure people know that the company does not care about their customers. I know they have new liners now that are not dyed, so there shouldn't be any real problem with the product, but be careful when dealing with them. **This posting box is super tiny, so I'm not proof reading this...hope it's ok:-)

I got the greenline diapers a few weeks ago. The greenlines are BEAUTIFUL. They seem to fit my 2 month old well, and I like the drawstring design and the fabric choices. Unfortunately, I have yet to use them twice in a row- Her diaper's wet, and so is the cover and clothes. I'm using them with the motherese diapers, which are kind of bulky, so maybe they'd work better with something else. I so very much want to be more positive, and I will keep trying them, but they do get wet and get her clothes wet too...

I ended up ordering two diapers and some extra liners. I'm really happy with the way they fit and look. I made my own stay-dry fleece liners. I haven't used them a whole lot yet as I still have a lot of diapers left over from gifts. Also, I do keep disposables on hand for when grandma babysits - always good to keep a free babysitter happy right?

I did try them out on my three year old and they were ok.. maybe a touch small but stayed on and didn't leak. I found they seemed to feel a lot wetter than the pads I made for g-diapers. Hopefully the fleece will help with that for my 3 month old - although the cloth liners I made do fit inside the Greenline covers.

Also, I've used the covers over disposables for photo shoots as the prints are just sooooo pretty!!!

Oh oh! I just bought 3 from etsy. I'm really excited because I love the prints. I just ordered them yesterday. I'll have to re-post after I try them out.

I wouldn't start with cloth at all for the first month or so just because you go through SO many diapers! I also find that my child's sleep is more important to me that money or the environment, so I generally use disposables at night. I found switching to be a bit weird (and I'm still in the process). I love cloth diapers on my 1.5 year old because she doesn't care as much if she's wet, but my 3 month old generally content baby gets a bit more irritated when he wears cloth. It's taking me a bit of time to adjust to changing him more frequently. I have used bumgenius and greenline. I like both, but if you go with greenline, make sure you buy an additional liner. I bought some fleece ones that were pretty inexpensive. I'm not sure about the new soakers at greenline, but the old ones don't wick the moisture away quite enough. I really like bumgenius except that they need to be stuffed, so you have to change the cover all the time as well. If you like greenline diapers, I would suggest making them because they are actually quite simple. Oh, and I have some rise issues with my 1.5 year old. I have a difficult time doing the diaper up above her hips, so it's quite a tight squeeze. And, if I had it to do over again, I don't like folding the liners! It's enough to have to sort the diapers out and launder them and such nevermind folding big liners. I think it would be cool to have a few layers of microfiber sewn together on one end so they can still fan out in drying but they stay together and don't need to be folded. If greenline had replaced my liners (which I'm still considering taking legal action for), I would have cut the new ones to be rectangles the size I wanted and sewn them together. I have some friends who really like the "Flip" diapers too:-)

Thanks for your input! Sorry to hear how things went for you! They seem so helpful and involved with their customer base it's unfortunate to hear that isn't always the case. They have such beautiful prints I would be pretty pissed off if all my stuff turned orange!
I still haven't ordered any yet as they seem to be constantly improving their diapers and I'm not due for another 2 months. It's been hard to find much out about them besides what's off their site.That being said how do you find they compare to other cloth diapers you've tried? If I go for them I'm going to get the 300$ full set so I want to be sure they're going to work.
