Diapers

Where should I begin????

When I was still pregnant with Lily, Will and I discussed and did research on many different options for diapers for Lily once she was born.

Cloth diapers maybe? Both Will and I were raised on cloth diapers and although times have changed, many new moms have started using them again. For us however, because we don’t have our own washer and drier in the apartment, it didn’t seem like the right choice.

Environment friendly diapers like Seventh Generation? Maybe. But, then I read the worst reviews about them. Sure everyone liked the fact that they were “green” but complained about fit, leaks and diaper rash. I didn’t want that for my Lily.

At the end, it was between Pampers and Huggies.

We chose the Pampers Swaddlers which we really liked up until lately. When Lily was smaller, there were few leaks or spills however, it seems that every time she goes #2 now, if we are not right there to change her diaper, it either spills from the back or from the legs. It is horrible!

So, we are back to the beginning. Which diapers now?

Shall we try Huggies? I wish Diapers.com would have a value pack of different diaper brands in the same pack so you could try and see which one works for you.

Well, after much research again, we have both decided to try the gDiapers. They are a bit more expensive but I like the fact that they have a gPant that covers the either cloth refills or the  flushable diaper refills which happen to not only be flushable but you can also garden compost the wet ones. So they are “green”!

I found that LuckyVitamin.com had the best deals in both the gPants and the refills.

Wish us luck! 😉
