Alice & her bald spot. May 2012.
So we're about seven weeks in with using the gDiaper cloth and cellulose-based disposable diapers and, I have to say, I love them. I knew that I was committed to doing cloth diapers before I had Alice but I was unsure how much extra work they would create for me. And here's my conclusion: Not much! Seriously. I do a load of the diaper inserts about every other day. And the diaper laundry bag I am using goes straight in the wash, too, so there isn't any stinky mess when tossing them in. So easy.
The cellulose-based inserts are awesome, too. They are so absorbent! I put one on Alice at night right before bed so that during her six-hour stretch of sleep, a wet or poopy diaper isn't sitting against her delicate skin. And when I change her during the night the disposable insert has nearly doubled in size with no wetness in site! Pretty amazing.
Honestly. I have no complaints about gDiapers. It's a wicked smah-t system.
After the initial investment, cloth diapering is much cheaper than disposables. I read that by the time your kid is potty-trained, most parents have spent up to $2000 on disposable diapers. I think I paid around $200 to get started with gDiapers and I'll most definitley use them with bambino numero dos (if there happens to be a numero dos). Environmental and economical = Awesome.
I know, I know. Nerd Alert!
