gDiapers are here!!!

Ok. I am officially a Mom with nothing better to do but get excited over diapers. Sigh...

BUT !!! They are soooo cute!! The gDiapers just came in the mail (ordered on Sunday night, delivered on Tuesday morning. Not bad...) and OMG her butt is so cute in them! Corinne is sleeping right now, so we'll see if I figured it out just right the first time, but they seemed pretty simple - except that I thought the liner was HUGE when I first saw it. I think I understand why, now. To make it the right shape with lots of absorbency! They kind of remind me of those massive pads they give you in the hospital after giving birth. But inside the liner? Cute! And her butt is actually smaller than with the disposables (shallow? Is my butt too big, Mommy?) , which, to be honest, was an issue with me. Let's see how they stand up to naptime... Of course, her disposables leaked often, too. So leaking wouldn't be a reason to not use them. ONLY if they leaked a lot when she poops. Crossing my fingers!!

I think I am becoming that mom that talks about recycling and environment... What next? Organic?!? :)

I feel invigorated. I feel useful, proactive. I feel less helpless, more helpful. If I contribute even 1 year's worth less of diapers to the landfills, I will have made a difference. And, knowing my kids, she will be in diapers till she's 3, so we're talking 18 months or more. Let's see... 18 months times 5 diapers a day (give or take for those icky days...) equals.... 2,737 diapers! Eeeewwww.....

I now feel the need to let everyone know. I am the test subject for my sister. If I like them, she's thinking about going green, too. So thanks, Sheryl! Your post made a huge difference to the environment!

GORGEOUS day out AGAIN!! The broccoli is sprouting and so are the watermelons (my children's picks... Oy.) I have tons of laundry to do but FIRST, I must bathe. I reek. :) TMI...

GASP! How cool! I have never seen diapers like those!! Um, okay, so maybe I'm a little strange, too, for getting so excited over diapers, but neat concept!

Well, I loved gdiapers. I had no leaks in them (except when the FM changed and didn't make sure the liner fully covered the insert on the inner legs) and at night I used 2 inserts because the Beast pee's like crazy. Unfortunately I've had to just go back to cloth because our house is old, and the inserts clogged our whole plumbing system within 4 days of moving in. Yeah, bummer. But your house is fairly new, so you won't have any probs! Happy diapering!!!

I want to know how these work out. I've seen them before and have wondered.

We're in operation go green over here too and I haven't decided on a diaper solution yet.

Jaymi, couldn't you just throw them away? I read in the information that the diapers biodegrade in 6 months if tossed in the trash.

Michelle said...

that was quick! I hope the diapers work out for you!

I haven't tried these yet, but have really been thinking about it. We try to be as green as possible over here. We recycle what we can, buy organic, but I know I could never cloth diaper. But maybe the gdiapers would work for us.

Day one with gDiapers was a success! She didn't leak once! I doubled the insert overnight as they suggested, and she was fine! She almost ALWAYS leaked by morning with the disposables, so I was totally expecting some wetness. Granted, it was FULL, but better than having to change the sheets!

Interesting... if I still had kiddos in diapers I would be tempted. But we have left that land and I'm in no hurry to go back!!

Oh, this is so wonderful to hear! I think I am behind everyone else because I don't use the gdiapers yet! AH!!!

Oh, and I finally posted about my trip to Google!

Glad the gDiaper experiment is going smoothly. One of my friends (now on the road, promoting An Inconvenient Truth) got to interview one of the founders.

Thanks for stopping by my place!

Woo Hoo! Gotta LOVE the gdiapers! We just took our first trip using the gdiapers. They were great! You gotta post a pic of that cute little gdiaper butt!
