Giveaway: Convenient, Cost effective Cloth Diapering

gro-baby-one-size 

I recently was introduced to a new idea in cloth diapering… The most convenient and innovative one-size cloth diaper on the market! Instead of a pocket, this one-size has a snap on soaker insert. This is a wonderfully novel idea because the same cover can be re-used by simply snapping in a fresh insert at each diaper change. This makes this diaper very cost effective because you won’t need as many pricy covers. A single cover can be used for multiple diaper changes, i.e. Instead of needing 40 complete diapers. You will only need ½ or less of the quantity of soakers depending on your child’s age. You can also keep some money in your pocket because this diaper can be used on infants from 8lbs to 30lbs.

So what is this new diaper?

The Gro Baby System. Gro baby cover is made of a soft mesh cotton. The inner soaker is oh so soft with organic cotton velour. I love the closure tabs on the Gro Baby. They are similar to velcro but the fibers are soft and short so they won’t collect fuzz or lint. I anticipate they will last much longer than traditional Velcro. This is perfect for little guys like Jack who are too squirmy for snaps on the changing table. My main complaint with this diaper is that the inner soaker takes a long time to dry, 70 min. in the dryer and it’s still not done. When I line dry they take longer than any other cloth liner I have. Also I found I really need to be on top of changing Jack often throughout the day otherwise he will pee though to the cover and I will have to change the entire diaper. I do think I was being a little lax on the diaper changes and I think it is good for his skin to do more frequent changes. Overall, I’m a big fan of the Gro Baby system.
