    Default G-diapers?

    Has anyone used these? It just occurred to me that they might be a good compromise for our issues (love of cloth, but super-sensitive skin requiring disposables to avoid constant severe diaper rash since about 13 months--after weaning), but I wonder how well they work...wouldn't really want to invest in a whole new set of stuff at this point (seeing the light at the end of the diapering tunnel at least beginning to glimmer...) if it wasn't going to be a sure thing, but...if we're stuck in disposables, at least those seem a little better than even the chlorine-free kind we're using now...I'm also curious if the inserts would work in a different cover (I still have my Flips) or if they're really a system that has to be purchased and used together.

    Any experience would be welcome

    I used Grovia disposable inserts with my regular covers while traveling. Worked like a charm! They absorb as well as disposable, keeping baby completely dry AND you get the added poo containing power of a cover! I could get those covers you gave us back to you. I even have a bunch of the inserts left for you to try!

    Awesome, thanks! My biggest concern, I guess, is that with the Flip disposable inserts we used while traveling, we were RARELY able to reuse the cover...if she pooped (which she does 5x per day minimum) then it was all over the place. Those inserts were just useless. But then again, maybe if nobody likes them, that's why they're so hard to find....

    She was also only 2 months old at the time, so the nature of the poop was certainly different. But still. I don't want to have to do laundry twice a day or buy one million covers. So I guess I'm mainly wondering about coverage/shifting.

    The Grovia inserts are practically the same form as a sposie just without the tabs. They were able to contain Teagan's "cleanse" poos (toddler sized BM poos ). The only thing that annoyed me was that the adhesive tabs that you use to keep them in place stuck to the cover a bit. It washed right off though. Since they aren't all that much smaller than a disposable you're not really saving on the amount of waste you're producing. They are compostable though. So, you can flush them. Problem is they're large so I wouldn't flush them down my toilet. Maybe take them to Target and flush them in their industrial strength toilets

    Well, I think the idea is that they biodegrade better even in a landfill since there's no plastic/waterproofing component. You can also supposedly put them into your compost, but I have heard that most backyard composts aren't big enough to create the heat necessary to break them down. Also, yuck.

    That does sound way better than the Flip ones, though. Those were just like a long papery maxi pad with no sticker. Useless!
