G-Diapers- Perfect for Travel
Another post I wrote a while ago, back in 2009.
I am a huge cloth diaper fan. I love them and I have tried just about every type out there. When traveling though cloth can be kind of cumbersome. They take up a lot of space in the luggage and sometimes you do not have access to a washing machine. I have done disposables during these times of travel and I have taken our cloth with us for travel as well. When planing our latest trip to Disney World I was looking for a better solution to our diapering problem. That is when I took a look at G-Diapers. They are a kind of hybrid disposable and cloth. None of the gross crunchy plastic stuff you have with disposables but none of the soiled diapers that constantly need to be washed.
A friend of mine was nice enough to let me try hers since they were not currently being used. I have now used them for 3 weeks of travel and I am very impressed. These are my current favorite for all travel needs. They are compact and you can buy them at many different places so you do not have to pack enough for the whole trip. Just remember to look on the site before you go to be sure there will be a store nearby that carries them.
During our trip we had a few episodes where the plastic inner got dirty, we would hand wash them in the sink and then hang them to dry. It worked perfectly. G-diapers also has cloth inserts you can use instead of the disposable ones. These would be perfect for at home use or for use when you have access to a washing machine.
