Since I started cloth diapering in 2009, I’ve heard Green Acre Designs (GAD) mentioned a lot. GAD makes sized pocket diapers and AIOs with PUL, fleece, or fuzzy “GADimals” outers. They also have one-size semi-fitted pockets, covers and inserts. Definitely worth noting are their husky medium and extra-large sizes. Weights are difficult to estimate since it really depends on the child’s build, but GAD estimates the extra-large will fit 29-55 pounds (Rise: 15-22, Waist: 14-28, Thigh: 11-19, Stride: 6), so check these out if you’re looking for a large or special needs child!
The embroidered diaper retails for $23.95 and the inserts are $4.50 each. The insert is sewn in a loop for more thorough washing and faster drying, and the flaps give you the ability to put the absorbency where you need it (4 layers in the insert and 4 in the flaps.) Green Acre Designs also has sized microfiber and French terry inserts, one-size hemp French terry inserts and hemp French terry doublers.
The pocket diaper has elastic on both the front and back of the diaper to contain messes, and side snaps for a trim fit.
The diaper I received has an additional flap of PUL covering the embroidery to prevent any wicking through. This embroidery backing is an option available for an additional $1.00.
The diaper has 1 mil PUL outside and microfleece inside. All GAD diapers come with a one-year warranty on snaps, elastic and PUL!
I received the “green baby” embroidery on kiwi PUL with butter microfleece, but there are tons of color and embroidery options available!
I’m loving all the little details like the finished pocket opening edges.
The diaper I received is a medium. My son is about 22 months and 22 pounds, and it fits him wonderfully with plenty of room to grow. Here is the size chart (ranges of course vary greatly based on your baby’s size & shape!):
||Waist (Inches)||Thigh (Inches)||Rise (Inches)||Stride (Inches)||
|Medium Long||11-23||8-14||12.5-17||5.5||15-35||3 Months-2.5 Years|
|Husky Medium||12-24||8-14||12-16||5.5||15-35||3 Months-2.5 Years|
|Large||12-24||9-15||14-19||5.5||22-40||8 Months-4 Years|
|Extra Large||Coming Soon||Coming Soon||Coming Soon||6||28-55||1.5 Years-7 Year|
Here I’ve measured the medium folded and stretched:
I thought the diaper looked just as adorable on.
It fit really well, and the one-size microfiber insert was very absorbent. It did take me a little bit to figure out exactly how to fold it, so he has quite the booty in this picture!!
