gdiapers, the cutest thing for a baby’s toushie

I mentioned before about gdiapers. When Petunia was little (like 4 weeks little) I tried them out but it seemed either poo or pee ended up on the outside so I decided to switch to disposable. During my disposable diaper phase I noticed how much artificial coloring was on each diaper and on several occasions that ink appeared on Petunia’s skin. Why does there need to be colorful cartoon characters made of artificial yucky-ness on every single diaper? I was done putting these on my kid. So I tried the gdiapers once again and am totally diggin’ them. They look so cute on her but that’s not the only reason I love these things. They are really easy to use and I love thinking there is no artificial colors and no plastic next to her skin.

For those of you not familiar with gdiapers, they are composed of a washable cotton little g outer pant (that come in adorable colors), a washable snap in liner (you get two per diaper because these can get soiled more frequently) and a plastic free flushable diaper re-fill. Like I said, this re-fill is flushable and it’s easy, so easy. If you don’t choose to flush you can compost or even toss in the trash. They will decompose in 90 days, so much better than the 500 years it takes disposable diapers to decompose. I’ve washed and re-washed the other little g pant and liners many times and they are still in perfect condition. And I just found you can purchase the refills on http://www.1800diapers.com/, you can also get a starter kit there which comes with everything you need to test these cute diapers out.

Even this pretty woman loves them: http://www.vanityfair.com/services/presscenter/pressrelease/julia_roberts200712

Here’s Julia (from the Vanity Fair Interview above):

Diapers:
“I use Seventh Generation [chlorine-free, nontoxic] diapers for Finn and Hazel, and then I was turned on to the [plastic-free, flushable] gDiapers. Henry’s got a gDiaper on.… I would recommend them overall. It is flushable, but you’ve got to stir that thing! If you don’t really break it all the way up, it doesn’t go all the way down.”

So if you are feeling guilty about filling our landfills or just want something more natural give these a try. Click here to read why gdiapers are good for our planet.

G fact: Last year alone, 18-23 billion diapers went into landfills across America. That works out to be approximately 38,000 every minute and adds up to about 3.5 million tons of waste! (from gdiapers website)

PS I sound like a commercial. I assure you I am not. I just love these things!

  1. Haha, but it was a good commercial! I’ll definitely remember these whenever it comes time for me to use them. (don’t worry, won’t be soon…not even married yet, haha)

    You know, so many times I’ve considered giving these a shot. But I’ve never known anyone who has actually used them, and I wasn’t willing to take that leap without some feedback! So thanks for your post. I just might check them out. I totally agree with you, they are adorable. But do you put P in them at night, too? I’m so paranoid about leaky wet diapers interrupting Coco’s bedtime…
