We’re big big BIG fans of social media. It’s amazing to us how it brings people together who may otherwise have never met. But also, it unveils a world of inspiration through the photos and stories that are shared by you. Jan Scurfield, owner of Sacred Images Photography, posted this beautiful photo the other day on the gDiapers facebook page, and the oohs and ahhs just naturally came pouring out. So we invited her to share her talent here. Check out the color.

We got this lovely email/travel story from gDad, James. Too awesome not to share:
Dear gDiapers team,
Thought you would want to know how well gDiapers work for young families on the move. We recently traveled from Lexington, KY to Charleston WV, Washington DC, Richmond VA, Baltimore, Burlington VT, Montreal, and Portland ME by plane, train, and automobile. Taking Amtrak was particularly enjoyable with our 2 month-old, Zeke. We discovered that the velcro on the outer cover of the gDiaper system stuck well to the carpeted train walls, aiding in drying damp diapers.
There isn’t a slideshow program yet created to artfully capture all 750 fan photos that were posted to our facebook wall in 2011. But we knew we needed to make this. We painstakingly trimmed down the amount of photos (often just by an issue of lighting or size) and squished them into this 6 minute video.
You know that video that makes you go “aww…” and “cool!” and makes your heart swell just a little and compels you to hit share? We hope this one gets you that way. Cause it sure got us that way. Which is why we’re hitting share right here.
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.
So what is a hybrid diaper? Where did it come from? One that comes with a cord so it can be plugged in to re-charge at night? Ha. Not quite. But that would make a pretty fun DIY project for you savvy seamstresses (and electricians).
gDiapers are the original hybrid diaper. They were invented by an innovative mama in Tasmania. She wanted to create a diaper with two insert options: one flushable, one washable and reusable. Voila. A hybrid diaper. The best of both worlds.
