One last post from me ... anybody know the TRIMMEST diaper combination for wearing under clothes? I have tons of great hand me downs for this winter and they are adorable. I'd rather buy some special diapers for when we are out and about than re-do an entire wardrobe.
Thanks!
Wondering if maybe a fitted with a PUL cover would be the sleekest combination?
Or maybe G cloth, or Gro Baby?
Thanks!

G Diapers! I'm new to cloth diapering and i bought a fitted diaper with a thirsties cover and could barely button his onsie...So then I tried G diapers with cloth inserts and they fit great! I'm buying more because they work so well and are so darn cute:)

I personally would go with a pocket so you don't need a cover if you get a really good insert like hemp or bamboo that will absorb a ton that would be a real trim fit! :)

My pockets if I use my hemp inserts are just as trim or trimmer than a disposible because they fit better. More like a bigger trainer than a disposible.

Good luck though, it is always fun to have cute hand-me-downs! :)

I posted this in another conversation, just thought I'd update you all on my gDiaper adventure!

Just got my inserts in the mail this morning from The Nappy Shoppe, they are called G-Flappers

http://www.nappyshoppe.com/store/index.p...

They seem VERY trim so far! Haven't given them the nap or bedtime test (I am guessing not so much) but they are going to be awesome for those "skinny" outfits. I spent less than $8 cover, and the inserts run anywhere from $5-$7, so even if you don't reuse the covers (which you can and should!) that's a very cheap diaper. They are not one-size, though, but bc they are so cheap, who cares? I will probably have a lot of covers "preloaded" with the inserts and then just set the covers aside to reload later. So this seems like a system that would be very easy to organize, very easy on the diaper bag, and very easy for anyone living in a two story home. I mean, come on, am I the only one that hauls me and my babies up and down the stairs all day long to change diapers or go rinse out poopies? Blah! Waiting on my order from cotton wood babies.

Hope this helps! I also think you have a couple days left to order the 6-day pack for $40 ... which is how I got my covers so inexpensively and the only reason I decided to go ahead and give these a try. Check our some gDiaper groups on-line, there are a lot of gMums trying to give out their codes for this discount!

I use g diapers and with the disposable/flushable liner they are pretty comparable to a disposable as far as absorbency and bulk but they also work great with prefolds and are great when out and about because you can put them all together and use just like a disposable just put the dirty one in a wet bag and take care of the liner when you get home.

Wee Huggers are SUPER trim. I got one to review for clothdiaperreviews.com. Haven't put up the review yet, but they are one of the trimmest diapers I have seen. I also like the new Thirsties Duo Wraps with a trim fitted or trim prefold.

I ordered some gDiapers!! The "from sea to shining sea" cover like in your profile pic, and then i got the everyday g's siz-pack for $40. Because both of my girls are still in diapers (or rather, my toddler regressed, I think because she thinks the cloth diapers are so cute! grr more laundry for me!) I bought covers in both sizes. Man, if this system works, this is going to be the CHEAPEST cloth system ever! I mean, besides prefolds, but I just can't get into them. I use them, but ...

For both size medium and large covers, and 24 inserts that work for both covers, you're looking at $250. That's incredible, and way more covers than you probably need, because they sell the snap-in liners seperately. And probably way more inserts than you need for this age also! But like I said, two in diapers, laundry every day :-(

I ordered from CottonWood Baby and also found The Nappy Shoppe (based out of Texas) and they sell a very cool insert called the G-Flapper, so called because all of the layers are not sewn together so I'm guessing that they clean up incredibly well and dry amazingly fast. Wouldn't that be awesome to hang the inserts in the laundry room at night and wake up to dry diapers, ready to go? I'm going to try the hemp fleece, micorfiber and midrochamois combo insert $5.50 and the hemp fleece, bamboo terry, and bamboo velour $7.50. Thank you sooo much for your advice, I am completely pumped! I'll update later here in a week or two how I end up liking them in practice.

yes they are the ones i use...The gDaper company makes there inserts with two layers of the fleece and two layers of hemp...The cotton babies makes there inserts with one layer of fleece and three layers hemp...the fleece is just supposed to help keep baby dry...to me it seems that more hemp would equal more absorbancy...When u get these inserts in the mail they seem too big but once u pre wash them the recomended 4-6 times they are the perfect fit....

wow, I found them! Wondering if they are not the official g cloth, but just made to size by this company? Either way I am excited and they are cheaper!!! Are they the ones you use?

Thanks

Sure...Does your daughter wear med/lrg? Cuz i found the inserts on another sight called cottonwoodbabies.com. Then on the left it gives a bullet for gInserts...I change his diaper about every 3 to 4 hours and at night his diaper will get a little damp unless i add a doubler...then it's fine...I also added the extra set of liners to my cart because i like to change the liner a few times during the day...peace of mind i guess...i hope you like them as much as i do:)

Sarah! Thanks for responding!! I had been wondering about the G diapers cloth, if they would be slimmer ... hmmm ... just checked their site and they are OUT of my daughter's size!! Now that makes me want to try them even more! lol. Thanks for the tip, I know I'll probably still use my pockets a lot, but maybe I'll hold off on buying a fitted. I was thinking that might be more slim than a pocket, but per your advice I will just be patient. I wonder if you have to change them more because they are slimmer? I wouldn't mind, but if you come into problems at night or long car trips or whatever, take that into consideration.

Thanks for your recommendation!

Let me know what you find out. I have a little boy. I was thinking cloth diapering would be easier with a girl since you can put them in dresses. I use chinese prefolds so whenever I need to squeeze him into an outfit I use vinyl pants. It's not my preference though since they are pretty noisy.

maybe I could make up a pocket for you to try. If you are willing to buy some. and if you like it we can make up some more. mine really are trim. All I have a layer of PUL a inside layer of microfleece and then what ever insert you put in it. like i said i would suggest a hemp-bamboo one. :) Let me know what you think. I could even take a picture of one and see what you think. I can also make them side or front snapping.



Let me know if you are interested k.

That's helpful, but I already use BG pockets, and they are slimmmer than my blueberries, but they are still too chunky for most outfits. She is 8 months and can barely squeeze her butt into my two year old's clothes. Oh well. Dresses work really well, and better than I thought they would with the crawling. I wouldn't mind buying a COUPLE of some other kind of diaper for the every once in awhile for when I have a skinny outfit I want her to wear.
