gDiapers Little gPant

gDiapers Little gPant

Rated on Apr 06, 2012

Pros
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

Cons
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

Overall
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.

We pretty much exclusively use Aveeno products for our baby with extreme eczema. It's hard to try anything else because Aveeno works so well. We use the calming bath for when she's got breakouts and the lotions morning and night and her skin stays fairly clear.

I guess that's all I can really say, it does what it's supposed to do. It would be nice to be able to work for different "non-standard" nipple sizes. I don't understand the point of the side clip on things for spoons, though.

I like that these bottles work with my breast pump, but I really don't like using them for feeding. There's no way for the air to escape so the nipple gets sucked in and the baby can't get milk out.

We have been using Dr. Brown's bottles since birth. We love them because they truly do reduce gas and spit up. The only downside is that there are several parts to take apart and if the blue part gets on the dish washer element it will melt.

I really like this spoon. It's long enough to get into jars and the bottoms of containers. It's got a small soft bite and a long handle to allow for better feeding. There's even enough room to help baby hold the spoon on their own. I also love the bright colors!

Our 8-month-old is highly sensitive to lotions and products and has insanely bad eczema. We've been using Aveeno products pretty exclusively and they really help to keep her skin clear. When she has a flair up we use the bath soap and occasionally use the diaper cream. We mostly use the lotion morning and night in order for her skin to stay smooth.
