So, back when I first started thinking about CD, I was told about gDiapers. I have done some reading about them, and the other various types (though admittedly, I still can't keep them all straight unless I'm looking right at them!).
I haven't seen too many strong recos here for gDiapers (or similar)....anyone care to share their pros/cons of this type of diaper/hybrid?
Pros: cuteness (subjective but often cited), they function well once you figure out how to get a good fit, hybrid so you can use the disposable inserts (other systems like Flip and Grovia exist too), breathable/no PUL (liner and pant are different types of nylon I believe), back fastening elastic is hard for babies to remove (equal to side snaps I think)
Cons: expensive as CD options go, often a steep learning curve for getting a good fit so many moms have leaks, some babies are sensitive to the liners, exposed snaps on the liners can leave marks, liners and pants and inserts all have different washing routines/complicated system
The main reason I never tried them was the 3-part system seemed unnecessarily complicated, and I didn't like that the liners and pants needed separate washing from the inserts, I wash all my diapers together. Plus I just saw such mixed reviews. Not for me.
