Now, although it is not exactly new, I had not previously known about the 360° gusset because it was a design change put in the year after my oldest daughter was born. Being a cloth user, I rarely need to replace my diapers (huzzah!) and was basically living under a frugal rock when it came to what was new on the market. Great for my purse strings, not so awesome for convenience because I used to deal with leaks. It happens. It also happens with disposables, only landfills and baby skin also deal with the repercussions of soiled diapers in that case. (Did you know that it can take 500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose?! Google it!) Since peaking out from my hidey hole, I have come across some really fantastic changes to the cloth diaper scene and this gusset is one of them. All mess is contained within the little enclosure and it makes clean up far easier.
Glow Bug offers what you call a “pocket” version, with microfibre inserts, and they are one of the cheapest cloth diapers that you can purchase. This does not mean that you suffer where quality is concerned, as they go above and beyond many competitors with waterproof flaps in the front and back to help prevent leaks, on top of the gusset and the snap in inserts-so things stay put.
What else do you need to know, do you wonder?
She gave me quite a struggle getting this diaper on, as she’s fiesty today and wanting to dance to 102.1 the Edge right now. That is the soundtrack for our afternoon and Mama’s interrupting her busting a move for these pictures! As you can see, the fit is quite nice, even if she prevented me from doing things exactly how I like them done by wiggling and kicking out, like a frantic frog that is air-swimming.
Now, this was poofed out a bit more than they typically sit on her because Chicky shoved it down a bit. Like I said, she is a bit high-strung today due to her need to dance…and nobody puts baby in a corner!
As you can see, she is dancing up a storm and quite pleased in her Glow Bug cloth diaper. I most definitely recommend them for the beautiful craftsmanship, the fun patterns, the handy gusset and the money-saving size options.
