One might think that diapers would be the simplest decision a parent could make for their baby. Diapers only have one function after all: make sure baby’s waste doesn’t end up all over the place.
It used to be an incredibly simple decision. You used what was available (which probably meant an absorbent piece of cloth and a sturdy rubber pant). But then someone had to jump in there and make it all complicated by adding OPTIONS for goodness sake. It’s become a battle royale. Diaper vs diaper. Cloth diapers vs disposable diapers. And ohmyword then there’s ANOTHER choice with gDiapers, which is a hybrid of both.
We make diapers.
So you’d think that diapers is our business.
It is. And it isn’t.
Our business is this: we want to eliminate the status quo that conventional disposable diapers are the first thing we reach for to diaper our babies. We want disposable diapers as we know them to become a thing of the past. A brief blip in human history, an “oops” and a slip into a habit of convenience, a regret that we can learn from, evolve beyond, and then put behind us.
Thank you to Christine, who shared with us a photo of her changing station. Man oh man what we’d give to be as organized as Christine! What’s on your changing station? What does your diaper disposal system look like? Send us your pics. Or post them to Pinterest with #gdiapers.
Sure, we switched the order around a bit. But reduce, reusable diapers and recycle just didn’t have the same ring to it. So what’s this all about then? Why a blog post dedicated to reusable diapers? First, when it comes to gDiapers, there are two ways to interpret what it means to be a reusable diaper. The diaper cover (gPants) is reusable. So no matter if you use a disposable insert or a cloth insert, you’ll still always be re-using at least that part of it. And then naturally, if you’re inclined to go with cloth, well then you truly are opting for a completely reusable diaper option.
Sometimes babies come in bundles. Thank goodness, so do gDiapers. So all the beautiful babies in your world can be covered comfortably, adorably, and affordably. Here are some tips for using gDiapers with multiples:
There’s not a whole lot that you can predict with babies. At least not with complete accuracy. At some point baby will crawl. At some point baby will smile. And at some point a first little white tooth will come blazing through. You just don’t know exactly when. So even though the timing of things are most certainly uncertain, there’s one thing on which you can rely: baby will poop. And we’re here to ready you for that very specific thing that babies do so often.
Just like you, gDiapers are ready for anything. So here’s the scoop on poop.
