I have pushed my buggy past gDiapers at Whole Foods many times. I have read their starter kit package at least twice. Last Sunday, I bought the starter kit of gDiapers and began using them on my two-year-old son that afternoon.

We’ve been a Pampers family since we brought Cooper home from the hospital four and a half years ago. I can’t even think about all the diapers I’ve thrown away. But, now, I am taking control. I will continue to persevere with these biodegradable, flushable diapers.

I have gone from using eight disposable diapers per day to one (overnight,) that is an 88% reduction.

They seem to have temporarily ended my debate over cloth vs. disposable diapers. The icky factor isn’t too bad – and I gag easily. I don’t know if I could tolerate these diapers with a newborn. Their little digestive systems metabolize so quickly, I don’t think I’d have the patience to go through the process every time. Plus, well, you know, things are rather runny.

So far though, little Graham’s behind is happy to be wearing gDiapers. I certainly don’t mind the little bit extra effort gDiapers require. We’ve had a couple of accidents, probably because he protests diaper changes so I rush. The accidents washed quickly and easily in my sink.

I’m finally trying to keep Graham’s potty and poos out of landfills.
