I've been looking into the different diapering systems, and found this g-diapers biodegradable/ flush-able diaper inserts. Has anyone used flush-able diapers? Did it clog up your toilet? Did you have any troubles with them? Would you recommend them to a first time mom?
I have never used them, but I am so funny about my septic tank that I don't even flush the flushable wipes down the toilet, lol. I think it stems from my brother who used to be a plumber and he would tell me the horror stories about tampons, wipes, etc going into the septic tanks and filling them up so bad.

I have a few friends that have tried the G-diapers and none have them stayed with them (I think they all had leaking issues). I use cloth and have used the GroVia disposable inserts (biosoakers) with no issues. Hope that helps!
Lurking from December 2012 PR (have a friend who just joined your DDC!) – but I bought G-diapers to use with DD1 – and barely touched them. I think as a FTM I thought it would be a good compromise, but honestly, they were just kind of a PIA. The rubber/plastic liners get pretty gross, they leak, etc… I just ended up using disposable the whole time. However, I did not have a problem flushing the liners for the few times that I used them. (For what it’s worth, I decided to cloth diaper this time around, and am loving it. I am using the Fuzzi Bunz pocket diapers.)
