G diapers at London Drugs and g diaper questions

Julie - posted on 09/26/2009 ( 7 moms have responded )




I recently discovered that my baby can't use our Fuzzi bunz(super sad:() I was thinking maybe of giving g diapers a try to use along with my one size Motherease .

How often does the g diaper cover need to be changed?

I know london Drugs sells the starter kits and the refills for them,but does anyone know if they sell the covers sepreatly??

I tried g diapers on my nephew when I was pregnant because I was anxious to use them. They worked really well with him. He was 6 months old at the time. They flush very easily as long as you tear the sides like in the instructions. We had no leaking with pee or BM. BM got on the liner a little so we had to change that but it was not on the cover. The website warns you that you may have to change the liner. The cover just needs changed daily like underwear. I did not try them overnight though so I don't know how they hold up with leaking. The g's even cleard up his diaper rash in 10 hours! They are wonderful! They may seemed like a little more work than disposables at first but they are great!!! When my son was born he was a little less than 6 pounds and he's now around 8 so I can't wait to try them with him soon!

We use BumGenius at home, but I used g Diapers for a trip to Mexico and they worked great for my 16 month old. I think they are even more environmentally friendly than cloth because they use less water. I watched several videos and learned how to put them on correctly before we left (the plastic liner should go in the crease of the leg like underwear.) The cloth cover did get dirty with most poopy diapers, but none of the wet ones. This probably varies with the age of the child (consistency and frequency of bm). So, for a 16 month old, I would get 4-5 covers.

I use the gdiapers & love them. I use cloth inserts at home & the flushables for outings. If they are fitted correctly, there should be no leaks, especially with the flushable inserts. Getting the right fit is a little tricky at first, but the website has great videos to help. The gdiaper yahoo group also has TONS of info. There are several places online where you can buy covers, liners, & inserts (cloth or flushable) seperately.

My best advice for the gdiaper (also a newer cloth diaper mommy) is using prefolds as the liner. My sons dont budge at all and the prefolds absorb so much nicer for my heavy soaker too! With gdiapers, they're nicer to set up, easier to clean/change, and are less bulky then the other's Ive tried. And i love how they seem to fit my son so much better all around, leaving less room for leakage

i've heard lots of mixed reviews! I desided that I am just going to use cotton diapers that are far from my favorites..LOL!

I have a friend who tried the g diapers and said it is good and theory but bad in practice. She said the liner ball up and there ends up being a puddle of pee.

I just bought my first G-Diapers as well, I wanted to give them a try! Which I am excited about.... sorry I cannot help you with any info in regards to how well they work due to the fact that I am still pregnant and haven't actually used them yet. But I can say from the research i did on http://www.gdiapers.com/ I think for other outer colors you have to order them online.

I would also appreciate any info people who have tried them have, like do they flush well did they leak easily after a big wetting or a BM?
