  • g Diapers come in a variety of sizes, but a newborn bundle has everything you need to get started from birth.
  • Inserts can be flushed down the toilet.
  • Covers are made with cotton, making them breathable, meaning less likelihood of diaper rash for your baby.

I first saw g Diapers a couple of years ago at a Lamaze conference. They really intrigued me but I never was able to go over and check them out the way I wanted.

Then I remember them this year when I saw them in a local store. Since we still have a baby in diapers, I decided to try them out and see if they would really work.

Now, I use a nice blend of cloth diapers and disposable diapers, so I am not unused to how diapers work. The appeal of the g Diaper was that it was supposed to blend the best of both worlds - environmentally friendly and easy to use.

The cover has a plastic insert that snaps in. You then add the diaper part. It was a lot like fitting a maxi pad into the diaper cover. At first I wasn't sure it would fit but it did. They fit well and didn't leak, neither when wet nor soiled.

They work exactly like they say. You pull out the dirty insert, and rip it apart, stir it up with the special rod and flush. This is all accurate. What I failed to really think about was ripping the guts of a dirty diaper apart. That was pretty gross.
