Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway: Glow Bug

flowerworks-glow-bug-diaper We’ve been using cloth diapers since Franci was born and have tried a variety of types and brands.  Our motley collection includes everything from homemade insert diapers to Chinese pre-folds to designer prints.  We certainly have our favorites, but as eco-consious diaperers, we’re not going to get rid of any unless they are leak prone.  If we were new to cloth diapering and ready to invest, Glow Bug Cloth Diapers would be on the top of our list.

The most important feature of cloth diapers, for us, is that they don’t leak.  I don’t care how cute they are!  We’ve been using our Glow Bug Diaper for months, and have never once had a leak or blowout (which is more than I can say for Charlie Banana, which we had to stop using it was so bad).

Super Undies Giveaway!

Reusable Nighttime Pullups

We’re excited to be hosting a giveaway from Super Undies! One lucky reader will receive their choice of Super Undie by entering the Rafflecopter Giveaway below.  Here are the different reusable training pants they offer:

  • We give their Nighttime Trainers two thumbs up (check out our full review from last week).  They are durable, extra absorbent and come in sizes for up to 10 year-olds.  You can add in extra layers for heavy wetters, and choose between cotton or microfiber, both in a variety of colors.
  • We have also been using their Hybrid Undies, and haven’t had a leak yet.  The idea is that they can pull off and on, but also have snaps in case of a big mess and have extra snaps so they will grow with her just a bit. They are too small for our toddler, but they fit our 11mo just right.

Charlie Banana Diaper Giveaway

Your life as a semi-professional diaper changer may be about to change in the next week if you’re lucky enough to win this week’s Charlie Banana giveaway! In my cloth diapering conversations, whenever a mother has mentioned Charlie Banana Diapers it seems to be followed by a long list of adorations: They fit so wonderfully, are so flexible, and have such lovely designs….Yadda, Yadda, Yadda…

After trying the diaper for myself, I have to say that I have joined the (sometimes fervent) ranks of the Charlie Banana fan club. The Charlie Banana Cloth Diaper itself is adorable but I also love how their pocket diapers are built to work with a cloth or disposable insert. The washable liner fits inside the pocket, just as it would on a standard cloth diaper, but the disposable insert sits on top of the fleece, close to the baby’s skin. It is secured by simply tucking it into a fold in the fabric. (Which means you don’t have to worry about securing it with complicated snaps or elastics.) When you’re traveling or taking baby to daycare, you can still use your cloth diapers along with the disposable inserts.

Monkey Foot Designs Wet Bag Giveaway!

Monkey Foot Designs Wet Bags are sturdy and functional, but also sewn from rich and colorful prints that almost make cloth diapering seem, well, glamorous! We’ve loved them for years here at the Green Baby Guide and one of our readers will be winning one soon.

In case you have no idea what a wet bag is, you should know that it can be used for toting damp items  including used cloth diapers, swim suits, breast pump parts, and baby wipes.  Although I initially stuffed a freezer bag into my purse for used cloth diapers on the go, I was so thrilled to have my Monkey Foot Designs wet bag.  (For one, I didn’t always look forward to washing out that used freezer bag by hand and a Monkey Foot Designs wet bag can simply be tossed in the laundry!)
