Q. What do I need to start using gDiapers?
Answer: To use gDiapers you need gPants (those are our breathable cotton diaper covers) and inserts (disposable and/or cloth). We recommend you have at least 6-8 gPants per size. You can re-use gPants throughout the day, only swapping out the soiled insert at changes, but sometimes the gPants will get soiled and you'll want to have clean ones at the ready. Having 6-8 means you'll always have clean gPants ready to use, plus an extra for the diaper bag or care provider. Each pair of gPants comes with one waterproof pouch already snapped in. It's recommended that you have extra pouches on hand, just in case the one in the gPants gets soiled. Some parents choose to buy all their gPants up front and have them ready to go. Others opt to buy the size they need, as they need them. We have several value bundle options, or pick and choose the colors and prints you love most and buy them individually. There's even a great re-sale market for gPants!
Here are the sizes you'll need to keep in mind:
- Size small gPants use size newborn/small Disposable Inserts, or size small Cloth Inserts.
- Size medium, large and extra large gPants use size m/l/xl Disposable or Cloth Inserts. (please see Just for newborns regarding our newborn size)
- If you plan to use the Disposable Inserts exclusively, you'll want to have a case (4 packages) every 3-4 weeks. Many parents choose to set this up through our Autoship program so that disposable inserts are delivered predictably and conveniently as you need them.
- Cloth inserts require more frequent changes, so you'll want to plan to have plenty to get you through a full day of changes, plus a few extra. Cloth Inserts are sold in packages of 6. We recommend having a total of 18-24 Cloth Inserts per size.
