Babies, by nature, are sensitive and need special care. As parents, we provide them with healthy products to keep them safe. So what happens when your baby has a severe allergy? How do you protect them? To find out, we sat down with gDad Mike (and gDiapers team member!), whose son, Quinn, has a food allergy: Tell us about your son’s allergy. My wife and I have always been conscious about living a healthy lifestyle. We used gDiapers from day one. We loved that they are hypoallergenic and don’t have latex, lotion, or fragrances. But mostly we loved that you...

It can be tricky to convince people that hybrid diapering is really a smart choice, especially grandparents who remember when cloth diapers involved sharp pins and big, bulky baby bums. Here’s how one gMum was able to convince her whole family that gDiapers is the way to go: We love how you first came across gDiapers. Can you tell us who introduced you to them? My mom and dad were convinced that cloth diapers were a bad idea after trying them on my older brother, Chris, 30 years ago. He would get terrible diaper rash and get pricked with pins...
As I write this post, I am sitting on a plane en route to Kilimanjaro. I am catching my breath from the whirlwind of the last few weeks and find I’m pinching myself that this is actually happening. Every Mother Counts, g, Tanzania. These aren’t random pieces of a marketing strategy or socially responsible programs that were chosen by focus groups. This is the manifestation of people, issues and places that I have been passionate about my entire life.
Just like our babies who seem to grow up so fast, our little company is also growing up. That’s right, we are 10 this year. That big milestone into double digits that says we aren’t so little anymore.

Two physical activities that should not happen simultaneously:
Being in labor. Walking up to 26 miles.
I couldn’t imagine walking across the living room when I was in labor, so the idea of having to walking up to 26 miles to seek emergency care in that physical and mental state is beyond comprehension. Yet this is the reality for countless women around the world in medically underserved regions. Even more alarming is that a woman dies every 2 minutes due to complications around pregnancy and birth, and astonishingly 98% of those deaths are preventable. When our son Fynn learned about these facts, he summed it up perfectly by saying, “If they are preventable, then WE HAVE TO help prevent them.” And I couldn’t agree more.
Growing up I thought my mother made the best butter on toast in the entire world. Even now when I visit her, it warms me from the inside out. It’s not extravagant or fancy, and I’ve been able to butter my own toast for a long time now. But, for some reason, mine never tastes quite like hers. She always laughs and says it is because it’s “Made with Love.”
And I absolutely believe this to be true.
Love is a defining ingredient for life. At g, we do our best to put love into everything we create. From products that touch your babies to the relationships we have with our vendors, we believe in the power of love and intention. Fortunately, love isn’t defined by perfection. But that’s the point. If something is “Made with Love,” there is beauty and meaning to be found within the imperfection.
