When my daughter was first born, I tried several different styles of cloth diapers, including Little G Pants. The first thing I discovered was that the S/M cloth inserts are much too big for the small diapers. The insert bunches up and is difficult to fit in place. As a result, the plastic liner is usually wet or dirty, and poop often ends up on the G Pant shell. I would definitely recommend extra plastic liners if you want to use the shell more than once.
However, the small size fits well for babies under 10 lbs., a better fit than the one-size diapers from other companies.
If you are looking to go the cloth diaper route, I would recommend BumGenius or Fuzzibunz for ease of use.
I love the concept of these diapers, but these did not work well for us. We had them when my son was very little. We tried the smallest size which was appropriate for his height and weight at the time and bought the disposible insert and the cloth insert but both leaked. It was a huge waste of money for us. We still have a ton of the disposible inserts left. We ended up trying a lot of different diapers and bumgenius worked best for us.
Simply put: although cloth inserts are available, these diapers are a great choice for testing the option of reusable diapers or enjoying an eco-friendly alternative to cloth diapering for those who aren't ready or don't want to commit.
I used small gDiapers for both of my babies, and I thought they fit better than one-size cloth diapers until the girls reached about 10 pounds. I also found I got a great amount of wear time out of the covers, since usually only the snap-in liner got dirty; I was able to get by easily with 6 covers and 12 snap-in liners.
With my first daughter, I enjoyed that these hybrid-style diapers gave me an easy-to-use, eco-friendly diaper option to try out without having to go straight to the muss and fuss of cloth (although the snap-in liners can get a bit icky to deal with and can be hard to wipe clean). The covers and snap-in liners can go in with the regular wash, thus avoiding a separate load for diapers if you're not using cloth inserts (the cloth inserts do need to be washed the same as any other cloth diapers if you chose to use those). Even though I did eventually switch to one-size cloth diapers when my older daughter grew out of the small gDiapers, I chose to use them again with my younger daughter because I wanted the convenience of not doing cloth diaper laundry for the first few months of her life while still "going green."
I hated these diapes, they were my least favorite out of our entire cloth diaper stash. If you use these with the cloth inserts-the cloth cover and my child's clothes ended up covered in urine. We also found that the plastic inserts didn't hold up well in the washer-the plastic layers on the inserts started to peal apart after only a few washes. The velcrow also was cheep-it was constantly coming undone while my child was wearing them. I would save yourself the hassel and buy something different as everytime my child wet himself we had to do a full clothing change. The only good thing about these was that I was able to sell them for more then I paid.
These diapers are a great hybrid choice if you're curious about getting into the cloth diaper world but not sure where to begin. Having the choice between cloth inserts and biodegradable disposable inserts is nice, especially while traveling.
Pros: super cute and trendy, super easy to adapt to
Cons: more expensive, covers get damp pretty quickly when using a cloth insert (what i prefer)
These diapers are fun and hip and the brand makes you feel like you're part of a cool parent movement when you buy them. However, if you're going 100% cloth, these are definitely NOT my first pick in CD brands because they don't last as long and are not made as well as they used to be (back in the early 2000s).
Cute, stylish, can be customized by embroidering, adding patches, or other accents
Don’t really need pants in the summer time
No need for a diaper cover
Velcro on the back is useful for little hands
Velcro is easy to use, especially with a squirming baby
When wet you can just change the cloth; when dirty just the liner
Lot involved with washing: you have to separate the liner from the gPant, wash, and then separate for drying (more to come on washing in a future post)
Come in 3 sizes- you’d think its a good thing until you’ve tried a one-size-fits-all
Doesn’t come in white, so you either have to match or have to cover it.
You have to use different cloths, or at least I did, to prevent leaking
The microfiber gCloth gets clogged easily and actualy becomes repellent when you have to use a diaper cream or if you ever use dryer sheets or detergent. This even caused me to stop using the gDiapers for a while
I've noticed slight fading of the gPant and curling of the velcro, even with line-drying
This was my first cloth diapering system. We had a full stock of smalls, but experienced frequent leaking. Once we moved to medium, the leaking was fixed for a couple of weeks, but the leaking started again, we tried all sorts of things, like stripping the diapers, but the cloths weren’t even absorbing anything, they had started to repel even water.
