Cloth Diapering Trial Program at Jillian’s Drawers: Try Cloth Diapering With No Risk!

What if you could try cloth diapers for 21 days, with lots of support, and a money back guarantee if it didn’t work out? Jillian’s Drawers Changing Diapers, Changing Minds program allows you to order $145 worth of diapers and use them for three weeks, risk free. At the end, even if the diapers are stained, you can return hem for their full value, minus the cost of shipping.

Many of our readers have recommended the Jillian’s Drawers cloth diaper trial program and and have kept the diapers at the end of the three weeks and continued with their cloth diapering efforts. Did you try a few cloth diapers at first or did you just take the leap and invest in a cloth diaper collection right from the start?

Which Cloth Diapers Last The Longest?

The Chinese prefolds I’ve used are legendary for the many baby bottoms they kept dry over the years. Those very worn cotton prefolds were purchased secondhand, used by my son, passed onto another baby, and then swaddled my daughter. Finally, I gave the surviving few away to another new mom while the rest are used as kitchen rags. While the prefolds were incredibly sturdy, I didn’t have the same luck with the wraps. Although I purchased them new, the velcro is worn and pulls away from the seams a bit more with each use. (I know I could repair the cloth diaper velcro, but my daughter is just months away from potty training so I think we’ll just wait it out.)

GroVia Diapers vs. gDiapers: Have You Tried Diaper Hybrids?

Up until recently, the main hybrid diaper on the market was gDiapers, a nifty little product that used a flushable or cloth insert with a waterproof fabric cover. GroVia now offers a similar product line with some adorable prints available for December of this year!

Interestingly both gDiapers and GroVia now offer cloth liners, making them a very flexible product that can either be used as cloth diaper, a disposable diaper, or both!  Why not use cloth most of the time but buy the disposable liners for travel or daycare?

In the Eco-nomical Baby Guide we offer a full cost breakdown for every type of eco-friendly diapering system available, and at that time hybrids came out as the most expensive.  Now that cloth inserts are available for hybrids, their overall cost will drop dramatically.
