{G's little g diapers}

So you know how a while back i mentioned that we were going to try out g diapers??
Well, We tried them
& Love them.
love Love LOVE them! 
& G loves them too :) 
Using them has already saved us money the past couple of weeks & G is a lot more comfortable. 
& not to mention, so darn CUTE! I love that the bottom of the diapers have a little "g" on them. It makes me feel like we have specially made, monogrammed diapers for our little G.. even though.. thats just how they come! I like to think were special :)

To start our little g diapering experience for OUR little G, This is what we got:
{1 (6) pack of "everyday g diapers"}

{1 (6) pack of snap in plastic liners}
{3 (6) packs of cloth inserts}

Thus far, these quantities have been perfect for us.
We use 1 cloth insert during the day & 2 inserts at night since G has starting sleeping for longer periods, just to be safe. We have figured out the whole g diaper system , & have not had a leak in a while now. 
For cleaning, I use my diaper sprayer to clean the poo of the poopy ones, then I just throw all the dirty liners & inserts in the wash at night after i put G to bed. Its really easy! 
Happy baby :)
She looks more & more like her daddy everyday! Atleast I think she does. 
Even though she is going bald, poor thing. 
We love her so much! 
She is 7 weeks this week. Time goes by so fast!

  2. Thank you for reviewing the G diapers. We're considering cloth and I am so overwhelmed with the endless number of choices. I also thought we'd be spending a fortune buying dozens of them. G is getting cuter and cuter every day!

  3. I tried cloth but that was a pain in the butt! My little boy was 6 weeks on Tuesday!

  4. I love cloth diapering my babies. Neither of my boys were newborns when I started, so I didn't know which kind to chose for a newborn when I have my next one. Thanks for reviewing these diapers. I was anxiously awaiting to see what you thought of them. I love my fuzzibuns, but I think I would like these for a newborn with them being more narrow. Love your happy little family. :)

  5. We are considering cloth diapers but we arent due until November so we have a little time. Everyone is telling me I won't want to wash them all that much but I think saving money is more important than doing an extra load of laundry at night. Where did you find these?

    1. Hi Adrienne!
      We LOVE our G diapers. They are super easy.
      We got ours on Amazon for pretty cheap. I think it was $168 for everything, and she is still in size small & she is 11 weeks old & 11.5 pounds & i think she will b in them for atleast another month. So they have lasted a good amount of time so far.

      Here are our Our cloth diapering basics:
      Everything listed above
      Kissaluvs antibacterial pail liner x2 {Just throw in the wash with your cloth diapers}
      Osocozy cloth wipes
      A wipie warmer {We fill our warmer with water, then dip the cloth wipe in it just before wiping}
      Kissaluvs antibacterial wet bag for on the go!
      Rocin Green Detergent {Cloth diaper safe} {We use this for ALL of our laundry}
      Diaper sprayer that attatches to the toilet {Bumgenius}

      Hope this helps!!
      Will be posting more about cloth diapering very soon :)

  6. Wow! These posts have been super helpful! I love the posts you have done, and then the comment that Ashley left is fantastic! Products I had yet to hear of. I'm thankful.

    Quick question; if your daughter's hips weren't as slender, would you have liked your fuzzibunz diapers? I purchased some gdiapers, but I find it a hassle to have to purchase all the differnet sizes as your baby grows. I'm happy with what I have so I can at least try them, but I'm debating on if I should also get some one size fuzzibunz to use at the beginning (and maybe continue on if I end up liking them). What do you think? My girl will be here on October 29th. Thanks in advance!

    1. Hello!
      Ourl ittle G is now 9 months old. Once she grew out of the size small G diapers {Which was at about 4/5 months?} , i went back to using our fuzzibunz.
      Just recently we went on a trip to alaska & i bought a couple size medium g diapers + the throw away inserts, so that i could still semi cloth diaper on our trip. once we got back from our trip i bought a couple more & the reusable inserts.
      So now we use both our G diapers & our fuzzibunz.

      I have to admit though, i like our G diapers a lot more than our fuzzibunz... keeping the fuzzibunz in good condition is a lot more difficult than the g diapers. plus, i noticed as G has gotten bigger & is eating more, She seems to leak through the fuzzibunz. We have yet to leak through a g diaper. I do continue to use both though.

      I would say maybe buy one or 2 of each cloth diaper you are interested in trying, & try them out with your little sweetie once she arrives & see which one you really like before buying a lot of them. I wish i had done that, rather than buying 25 fuzzibunz, & not being able to use them until she was 5 months old! Would have saved us lots of $$ :)
      Hope that was helpful!
