Glow Bug Cloth Diapers (GBCD) is a company started by two moms (Sarah and Neta) who met one day during a prenatal yoga class. They grew frustrated searching for the perfect cloth diaper brand because they couldn't seem to find the product they needed for their babies. The solution they came up with was to start their own cloth diaper company and so Glow Bug Cloth Diapers was born! GBCD's diapers are sold in packages of 12 one size pocket diapers with a total of 18 absorbent snap-in inserts. GBCD believes in saving their customers money, which is why they only offer their diapers in packages instead of selling them individually. When washing your GBCD diaper, there is no need to remove the insert. You only need to make sure it's unsnapped from the diaper to prevent any damage and the insert will agitate out!
Also, GBCD is one of the few companies I've heard of that actually like to participate in co-op orders. They oftentimes post on their Facebook page letting you know who is offering their diapers in a co-op. This is a great way to get your hands on one of their diapers (or a few) if you aren't in need of an entire package.
I've been curious about Glow Bug Cloth Diapers for quite some time now. However, having a full stash of diapers already, I just wasn't in need of an entire package. So I though what better way than to bring my readers a review of this wonderful diaper. GBCD sent me their very awesome Dragon print diaper to review. All of their diapers have double leg gussets, which is one of my favorite features in a diaper. The gussets do a great job of keeping everything in so you don't have to deal with messes. They also have a snap-in insert that has a pretty unique feature. Not only does the insert snap into the pocket itself, it also has a snap on top of the insert where you can add another for absorbency. I love this feature because you can add another insert without having it move all around in the diaper. It's really easy to stuff this diaper unlike some other diapers I have encountered that have two openings. I really love the fit of the diaper and that it's not very bulky. With just one insert, C had no leaking issues. I would probably add absorbency for a nap and definitely bedtime, just because he wets so heavily.
This diaper is truly a one size diaper. C is at 30lbs right now and is starting to grow out of some of his "one size" diapers. The Glow Bug diaper fits him very well with room to grow. Each diaper has color coordinated snaps, which I think is a great idea and will help me when I want to pair it with an adorable pair of leg warmers. Some more great features of Glow Bug diapers:
- Two sets of crossover snaps for a perfect fit around newborn tummies.
- Waterproof flaps in the front and back to prevent leaks.
- Two openings in the pocket makes it easier to get the insert in and out.
- Each set of 12 diapers are packaged in a FREE wet bag!
- Four size setting fitting from birth through potty training (7-35 lbs).
- NEW SlimDry fabric keeps baby's skin dry without the bulk.
If I were in the beginning stages of building my stash, I would definitely add their diapers to my list. Like I said, I have no need for that many diapers with my stash already at a large number and I highly doubt I could convince my husband for the need of 12 more diapers. However, I would easily recommend them to anyone looking for a great brand to purchase. They truly are great quality diapers.
