Natural Fiber

Do I really need to prep hemp #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers


We all know you need to prep natural fiber diapers & inserts to remove natural oils & make them more absorbent. Personal experience tells me this is true. But I wondered just how prepping affects the fabric. [click to continue reading]

@Geffenbaby newborn super absorbers #clothdiapers inserts via @chgdiapers 1

I have a business relationship with the manufacturer, and I received this product sample for free. Geffen Baby‘s line of absorbers (universal cloth diaper inserts) are available in 3 sizes (newborn, regular & plus) and 2 materials (hemp fleece or hemp jersey.) They are all 5 layers of 60% hemp/40% organic cotton, and are made in the U.S.A. I received their newest product, the newborn super absorber, to try. [click to continue reading]

@geffen baby inserts in gDiapers #clothdiapers via @chgdiapers

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! [click to continue reading]
