    Default G-Diapering

    I've posted here a few times asking questions and such as we decided what cloth diapers to use. DH and I decided that we love the concept of the g-diapers. We like that we can use either cloth or the biodegradable inserts. We also liked that it would be easy to use at Grandma and Grandpa's.

    I found a tutorial on how to make my own cloth inserts and started that today (my first sewing project ever). the don't look "pretty" but since they'll be poo'd and pee'd on it doesn't matter how pretty they look. lol.

    Does any one here have any tips for the g-diapers?

    We were going to try them but never got around to it. I have an issue with "biodegradable" inserts in general that isn't immediately apparent to most people. Biodegradable plastics aren't truly biodegradable. Sure, they break down but they break down into smaller pieces of plastic, never to be used again. If you put them in a landfill it's pretty much the same as non-biodegradable plastic. What's better are compostable inserts because they will actually be recycled by nature but only if you actually compost them. Putting compostable items in the trash just helps to take up space in the landfill because landfills are designed to significantly reduce the rate of biodegradation.

    I'm in no way belittling your choice to use them. I'm just offering up the info in case you're the sort of person who might change their mind based on that bit of info. They're still way better than using just disposables though because of the overall reduction in waste. In terms of ease of use, I'd think pockets or AIOs would actually be easier.

    The gdiapers inserts are 100% biodegradable and can be used in composting as they break down and go back into the earth in 45 days.

    I am highly considering using G-diapers. That's actually why I popped on this board - to see if anyone here had any advice or experience with them.

    What excites me is that not only are they compostable, but they can also be flushed! And I wouldn't have to do OODLES of washing, like you would with regular cloth diapers.

    I've never used cloth before - with all three of my older kids, it was all disposables. I'm really looking for a better, more earth-friendly alternative, but I'm not sure I could go completely the other way, which is why g-diapers appeal to me.

    Look into Flip diapers. Same concept as the G diapers, they have two kinds of re-usable inserts and then the disposible inserts as another option.

    Family members will be able to use AIO and Pockets better than the G or Flip diapers though, just an FYI.

    As another option, I cloth diaper part-time. It doesn't have to be 100% of the time if that doesn't work for you!
