Carrie, Cooper and big sister, Hattie, have recently welcomed a brand new adventurer to the family! Baby Hobbes arrived fashionably early, a week ahead of schedule. Just as Cooper was readying to set out with a friend for the inaugural day of hunting season, Carrie’s water broke. It was game on, (just not the game that Cooper had intended for the day!).
Hobbes’ brand new bum has been comfortably covered with the newborn gPants since day one. And though it’s too cold now to compost, the disposable inserts are flushable, which means with 6-8 changes a day (or a package a week), the garbage can isn’t overflowing.
Carrie and Cooper, our friends at high elevation, are heading in to the home-stretch. Baby #2 is coming very soon. And with cooling temperatures and the onset of snow, this Leadville family has headed indoors to prepare for baby’s arrival. Nesting is underway.
“The Leadville summer ended with a couple of good snow storms and chilly temperatures, meaning much of the garden crop was pulled by Hattie (with some help) and processed into baby food that is now frozen and awaiting the day the little man wants to try some solids. Beets, carrots, and spinach mostly … plus we arranged to get two boxes of 2nds apples that were turned into about 15 quarts of applesauce in one epic day of canning activities. Hattie is actually still working on last year’s batch, but figuring we’ll need all the extra we can get with an extra mouth in the house starting in six months or so. Many of Hattie’s gDiaper disposable inserts (wet ones only) helped to create the nutrients absorbed by the veggies that now constitute what will be some of little brother’s first bites of solid food.”
Yes! gDiapers disposable inserts are flushable! And as you’ll learn being a parent not all things are flushable, though your toddler may try to prove otherwise.
Our disposable inserts have been designed to be flushed down toilets in North America (so to our friends outside the US and Canada, please disregard this entire post, do NOT flush your inserts, compost or toss instead). What are the perks of flushing? For one, NO POOPY DIAPER SMELL IN THE HOUSE! For two, it means that your baby’s poop goes down the potty, not in a garbage can. It’s simply the safest way that we have to dispose of human waste. Bottom line.
If you’re keen to be a flusher, just be sure you know thy toilet. If you’ve had plumbing issues in the past, then it’s probably not your best option. Let’s be comprehensive here about what that could mean.
