gDiapers – Baby Shower Event review & giveaway

 

gDiapers are a totally different type of diaper!  Unlike your typical disposable diaper which can sit in a landfill for up to 500 years, gDiapers have been designed to decompose in less than 2 months.   Plastic, latex and elemental chlorine free, they can be used with the biodegradable gRefills OR a gCloth insert.

I have been hearing about gDiapers for years but hadn’t had a chance to try them out myself, so I am thrilled to be able to review them now!  For review, I was sent 2 of their tiny gPants (for newborns or small babies weighing 6 to 10 lbs) and 2 small gPants (for babies between 8 and 14 lbs), as well as the biodegradable gRefills and gCloth inserts in small, which fits both the tiny and small gPants.

Since my baby is still baking (I’m due 3 weeks from today), I haven’t been able to use them on a real baby yet.  However, I can tell you that the gPants wash quickly and easily, the velcro closures are super soft and will not be a scratching hazard, and they take about 2 seconds to stuff with either insert.  The tiny gPants are all one piece, but the small gPants have the snap-in liners.  What does that mean?  The snap-in liners hold the inserts, so if it gets dirty but the gPant itself is still clean, you can just swap out the liner for a clean one and keep using the gPant!

I haven’t been a fan of velcro closures in the past, but gPants just might make me a convert!  Their unique design has the closures at the BACK of the diaper, which I’m sure will cause a laugh during a middle of the night change at least once when one of us puts the pants on backwards,  but will help to keep little hands from undoing the diapers.

Here’s a video of Kim Graham-Nye, one of the creators of gDiapers, showing that yes, those large-looking inserts will fit inside those itty bitty covers, and how the tiny gPants fit on a brand new baby!

I love how trim the gPants are, with both the gRefill and gCloth inserts, and I can’t wait to try them out on Sprout when he or she finally arrives!  Canadians, you’ll be happy to know that gDiapers is in the process of expanding their availability here AND lowering their price point!
