G diapers and Bumgenius diapers

G diaperThis past Saturday, I (senior web editor Helen Racanelli here) attended the Greenmom spring market in Toronto. I loved that this market had all the green products I've been reading about for babies (I'm expecting my first child in October) but haven't yet seen up close. One of my favourite products that I came across was the G Diaper, which is a cross between a disposable and cloth diaper. The outer breathable shell is cloth, with cute velcro tabs that fasten in the back, and the disposable part is a refill you stick inside. It's compostable, toilet flushable pulp fluff from farmed trees. Of course I have no actual idea how well these will work, especially what with my experience changing, oh, maybe three diapers, but I bought a starter pack anyway, including two covers and about 8 refills for $30. This isn't a perfect solution (read our story The Great Diaper Debate) but it's one worth a try on my part, I think. Another product I've read rave reviews about is the Bumgenius diaper, which is a cloth all-in-one with velcro. So no folding, diaper pins, and rubbery or PVC diaper cover needed. Each infinitely reusable diaper costs $20 each. I bought one to try when the time comes. I have to admit, it looks bulky compared to the sleek stylings of the G Diaper and maybe not suitable for a newborn as it looks larger, but it will last and last and last. Have any of you tried these products? I'd love to hear what you think, even if you haven't.
