Baby Henry and his green gbum

We discovered gdiapers when Owen was about 3 months old. It was in December of 2005 and they were brand new on the market. I had a real dilemma throwing away bags of dirty disposable diapers with James, but at that point, didn't want to switch to cloth diapering. That was the only other option available until gdiapers came around. Turns out cloth diapering wasn't as daunting as I originally thought, but I just needed the flushable inserts to serve as a transition.
So I started with only flushable inserts in the gpants. They had a bit of a learning curve, as we had to figure out how to fit them onto Owen's little body to avoid leaks, but one of the fabulous things about the early years of the gdiaper company which remains today is their customer service. They have a diaper hotline you can call and someone will give you a personal tutoring session in all things gdiapering, no matter how many times a day you call.
Eventually I got brave and made the switch to cloth inserts in the gpants, a decision made mostly for economical reasons, that obviously has great environmental benefits as well. These are the ones I use and love, and the brand new gcloth inserts that just came out seem very similar, and are a great deal.
If you have ever considered switching to gdiapers, this is the time to do it, as they have a fabulous offer going right now.
