Who Knew?!

Non-plastic, reusable diapers. I'd never heard of such a thing until today, courtesy of Canape at Don't Take the Repeats. They're called gDiapers, and they're evidently a perfect balance between the convenience of disposable diapers and the environmental friendliness of cloth diapers. I knew we couldn't afford to use a diaper service when E came along, and I certainly don't have the time for laundering cloth diapers myself, so I didn't investigate any other options. Since the making of Baby #3 is in the near future, it looks like I'll have to do some research on these things.. Anyone else heard of them or have experiences with them?

I LOVE gdiapers! I've been a fan for years, and I'm so glad to see that they are starting to go mainstream. I recommend them all the time. I love the the covers work with their own flushable inserts OR with any prefold cloth diaper. I like using cloth at home and having the flushable inserts for outings.

After excitedly telling Hubby about these last night, he, always the Debbie Downer, asked: "How much do they cost?" I checked, only to find that they're about ten cents more per diaper than what we pay now for disposables...On a graduate TA's budget, I'm not sure if ecofriendly diapers will make the cut, but I'm hoping we can do it.

I've done lots of research on these too, and the thing that concerns me is possible plumbing issues. They can clog toilets and pipes, which could cost a lot of money to repair. Seventh Generation makes chlorine-free diapers which biodegrade faster and are more a bit cheaper.

I find, actually, that cloth isn't too bad. We have 2 kinds -- Bumgenius (which I love -- I put them on OVER disposables when I expect a blowout because they're so much better at catching the poop) and Fuzzibunz, (which are pretty good) -especially since with the tiny ones you're doing so much laundry anyway. Although I have a lot of diapers, a friend of mine gets by on 12 or so total, so she does a lot of laundry, but didn't have to make that huge of an initial outlay. Although, that said, the cloth thing would SUCK if you didn't have your own machines!

But a lot of people I know really like the Seventh Generation. I have to say, though, that when I use a disposable, I just go evil and corporate and contribute yet another permanent resident to the landfill. Sigh.

We've had a great experience with gdiapers. They definitely take a little getting used to and require more work, but I love that they won't be sitting in a landfill and that our garbage doesn't smell like diaper. We use 7th Generation when we're traveling or on the go.
