If you haven't already heard there is a great new one size diaper on the market call Gro Baby. I have been super lucky to be a Gro Baby tester via a request on Facebook and I won a Gro Baby on Twitter. I liked them so much I emailed them and asked if they would send me a sample for my cloth diaper workshop to raffle off. They were doubly nice and sent me two, so I have an extra mandarin one to now giveaway here on GreenKiddos!
Gro Baby is a unique system. The outer shells of these diapers can be used numerous times in a day, while you just change out the snap in organic insert. I like this concept a lot and I really love the shells. They are waterproof yet breathable and have the best Velcro system I have ever seen! It is super easy to get a great fit with these diapers.
The shell set (which is what I am giving a way) comes with one shell, one organic soaker pad and one organic booster. I have been using these on Sass at night and have yet to have a leak. They really work great!
As with any product, I want to give you the pros and the cons. The are just a few downsides that I have found with this diaper. First off, I hope they will eventually come out with two sizes of snap in inserts. As much as I love this diaper on Sass, there is no way it will fit new baby for a while with the insert it comes with. Someone from Gro Baby suggested just using prefolds with the insert until baby gets bigger.
Secondly, remember how much I said I love the easy Velcro system on this diaper?? Well apparently so does Sass. Unfortunately a diaper can only catch what is deposited in it and when your two year old repeatedly removes it herself before nap or bedtime is over it can lead to a huge laundry load of sheets and blankets. I have to make sure to have pants on her or she will take this diaper off. (Gro Baby has come out with a snap version of this diaper though, we just don't own one!).
Lastly, maybe I am just doing something wrong, but it seems that sometimes the soaker pad is bunched in the middle when I take it off of her. Now this hasn't caused us any leaks or anything, just seems like it would be uncomfortable!
Gro Baby is a truly economical way to get started with cloth diapers. It's even more economical if you have two in diapers because you wouldn't need two sizes. If you are just starting to cloth diaper and wanted to make a one time investment, Gro Baby offers a package with everything you need for only $375 ( do you know how quickly you would reach that number in disposables?). This package includes 12 shells, 24 soakers and 16 boosters. That is plenty of diapers to get by washing only every other day to every two days depending on the age of your child.
Okay, so enough about the diaper. I love it. You want it. Here's how to get it!
