As you may be aware (or maybe not!) I work with Geffen Baby. Some of the products pictured in this post were purchased by me, some were loaned to me, some were given to me for review. I was not asked to write this post, nor was I compensated to do so. gDiapers gCloth are about $5.50 each, purchased in 6 packs. They are nice in that they have 2 layers of microfleece (Why 2? I don’t know.) to wick moisture away from your baby, but they only have two layers of absorbent hemp/cotton. Naturally, I wondered how Geffen Baby’s 60% hemp/40% organic cotton inserts would fit in gDiapers. Their hemp inserts are five layers and run between $3 and $4 each (sold in 3, 6 or 12 packs.) I photographed the gDiapers inserts and compared them to Geffen Baby’s inserts as well as their hemp prefolds, and also show how each one fits in the gPants!
First up, some photos before the gCloth was prepped; the gDiapers small gCloth is on the bottom, with a Geffen Baby super absorber in the middle and quick absorber on top. (Geffen inserts have been prepped in all photos since they were ones I had/used.)
Next, the gDiapers medium/large and Geffen Baby’s largest insert, the super absorber plus:
After prep, the Geffen quick absorber is a great match for the gDiapers small, while the super plus is a bit bigger and the super a bit smaller than the m/l gCloth.
The super plus is a great match for the gDiapers disposable insert.
Better yet, I discovered that the XS hemp jersey prefold and the small fleece prefold are a great substitute for the small and m/l gCloth respectively.
Prefolds are 4 layers throughout, so 8 or more layers depending on how you fold them. The XS/S hemp prefolds are in the $6-$7.50 range (each.)
Here’s the quick absorber in newborn, small & medium gPants (medium & large gPants both use the medium/large pouch.) Geffen Baby also makes smaller newborn size inserts (like a doubler size) that would make for an even trimmer newborn diaper in that stage where you’re changing tons of diapers & don’t need as much absorbency.
Here’s the super absorber in the m/l pouch:
Finally the super plus in the m/l pouch:
There’s of course no reason you couldn’t just use inexpensive cotton prefolds in place of gCloth too!
Have you used gDiapers? Did you use gCloth, disposable inserts, or something else?
