    We are new gdiaper users.  Ever since having our little one, I have been seriously stressed about how non-eco friendly having a baby is.  I looked up eco-friendly diapers, but I just don't have the patience or the interest in doing that much laundry for cloth diapers.  GDiapers are a mix of cloth and disposable- and the inserts are bio-digradable!

    Has anyone else used them?  We have been doing sort of a combo with regular disposables (when I know he's going to poo) and GDiapers when I'm pretty sure we'll be poo-free.

    Personally haven't heard of gdiapers.  Yet, I did use clothe diapers, and for me it was great.  It saved allot of money, and didn't stink up the garbage can.  How I was able to do it was, having a diaper pale with a lid that locked down.  I put a small amount of powdered bleach, and a cap full of liquid oragnic cleaner from Amway.  When the diapers got messy, I put on the gloves, rinsed out the diapers in the toilet, (I know some say, oooo!) then I put the clothe diapers in the diaper pale.  I had enough that I was able to wash the diapers every 5-6 days, there was no horid smell in the pale either.  The diapers were clean not stained when they came out of the washer/dryer.  I did use Amway laundry products, I was told later, some who did not do this method, would end up with some less than liked residue in their clean clothes.  If you are using disposable inserts, it will make it all the easier for you:)  Hats off to you for not wanting to add to the land fills anymore than you have to:)

    I used reusuable nappies for two years with my second child. I've also never heard of a gdiaper, but found no problems with the usual washable sort. In fact it was really simple. All I did was stick them in a nappy bin, no need to soak (after removing biodegradable fushable liners) and wash when ready. They were made of bamboo which is naturally bacteria resistant.  The only problem was around the time of late September, Oct, early Nov when the weather outside was not warm enough to dry naturally, yet the heating indoors wasn't on. Of course you can tumble dry, but I tried to avoid that as not eco friendly.

    Never heard of gdiapers, either.  But as a first-time Grandma come September 7th or thereabouts, I'll look into them.
