gDiapers Flushable Diapers
What Are gDiapers Anyway?
Did you think your only options were disposable or cloth? G Diapers are the world's first flushable diapers. Environmentally friendly, G Diapers do not contribute to landfills and the landfill issue is the biggest argument against disposabel diapers. gDiapers are designed to keep your baby dry and comfortable while they keep the earth a little happier.
gDiapers have no elemental chlorine, perfumes, smell, garbage or guilt. Sure, the whole idea of flushing takes some getting used to. But then so did recycling and you probably don't even remember life before you started separating your paper from your glass. gDiapers are a whole new way to diaper your baby's bum and there may be no going back.
gDiapers now come in beautiful print designs as well as their original solid colors. You can also get washable inserts to convert your flushable diaper into a cloth diaper! More diapering fun for everyone!

A Parents Thoughts on gDiapers
G Diapers are like the hybrid version of diapers, they are part cloth and part disposable, flushable, or compostable. G Diapers have an outer cloth layer, which come in a variety of sizes and colors, then a water proof liner, and then the disposable wood fiber pad. They are better for the earth than disposable and yet not quite as time intensive as cloth.
I love these diapers, for me, they require less work than cloth diapers. There is much less washing involved, yet I do not feel bad when I do need to toss the diaper in the trash, there is no plastic anywhere in the diaper. These diapers are helping me teach my 18 month old son how to compost, he loves being able to dig his own diaper compost hole. The flushable liners can also be placed in the toilet and flushed - even in a septic system. G Diapers are cute, and comfortable. It did take me a few tries to stop any leaking, and I learned my son needs two absorbing pads while he sleeps. I have never had any issues at all with any solid waste. Even the plastic bags that the diapers come in are recycleable. I also like the company, I have volunteered to spend time at their booth in Chicago's Greenfest. When first purchasing these diapers, there is a starter kit, giving us the opportunity to test these diapers before buying everything.
A few times during the first week or two of use, my son's clothing and the outside cloth part of his diaper would often become wet, nothing too bad, but enough to need a new outfit. I had talked with some other moms who use this product and through experimenting on how to fit the diaper to my son, these problems stopped.
