hand me downs.

October 10, 2011

You know what’s not cool? Handing over our garbage to the next generation. You know what is cool? Using yesteryear’s gDiapers on subsequent children.

No matter what you choose to use inside gPants, you still have the luxury of getting to use gPants over and over and over again. We’ve had parents use the same gPants on their 3rd and even 4th babies! True story. Yes, they may no longer look fresh as a daisy. They are still clothing and clothing, as we’re aware, will wear out the more it is used and washed. But we all know that there is a time and place for those well-loved hand-me-downs, and we have some great tips on taking care of your gPants so they’ll last and last.

Sometimes customers will ask us why we don’t use snaps on our gPants. Several reasons. But a big one is that snaps are not an easy fix. If a snap breaks and needs replacing, it’s kind of a big deal for a lot of folks (not all of us are savvy with a sewing machine or snap punch). But velcro is simple. It may wear out with time, but we’re happy to offer replacement hook (that’s the scratchy side of the velcro, the piece that can wear out). We’ll even send along simple instructions. It can be stitched on by hand or by machine, whichever is easiest for you. That way you can keep on using those little gPants. And keep on growing.

Need replacement velcro for gPants? Just shoot us an email at and we'll send you a kit that includes replacement hook tabs for up to 6 pairs of gPants. The first kit is on us. Parts and pieces are not available for reasons other than refurbishing worn out gPants. We just want you to be able to keep using what you already have.
