Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Glow Bug Cloth Diapers {Mother's Day #ClothDiaperHop}

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers {Mother's Day #ClothDiaperHop}



Before my daughter was born, I was researching different cloth diapers.  I saw many people raving over pocket diapers, but chose not to get pockets because I thought, "I don't want to spend $20 on a diaper, especially if I buy 12-24 brand new diapers."

Then, I heard about Glow Bug Cloth Diapers and saw that you can buy 6 pocket diapers for $75 or 12 pocket diapers for $150.  You can choose a Glow Bug Boy Package, a Glow Bug Girl Package, or Glow Bug Spectrum {Gender Neutral} Package.  Wow!!  I started to wish I had known about them before Charis was born.  Glow Bug Cloth Diapers was started by two friends, Neta and Sarah.  They wanted to help those who were looking for a good quality diaper at an affordable price.

I was sent a pocket diaper to review.  Each Glow Bug Cloth Diaper:

  • Comes with two inserts
  • Is designed to fit from 7-35 lbs. 
  • Has a 4 step rise
  • Has double gussets {which would be WONDERFUL for babies who have the breastfed poop}.
  • Has two openings {which allow the inserts to agitate out in the wash}
  • Snap in inserts {helps keep the insert in place}
  • Each purchase of 12 diapers comes in a free wet bag

My thoughts: I love the bright, colorful prints that Glow Bug offers.  This diaper fit my daughter well, and there's still room for her to grow.  This diaper would definitely fit a larger baby/toddler without a problem. It was easy to stuff the inserts in the pocket.  The insert agitated out in the wash, but you need to remember to unsnap the insert.  {Unfortunately, I learned the hard way.}  My daughter's Glow Bug diaper was trim on her.

Even though this diaper comes with the two inserts, it still was not enough for my heavy wetter at night.  But once I added a hemp prefold trifolded and placed it in the pocket, it worked well for night time use.    Update: You are able to buy Glow Bug Diapers individually, but only in their limited edition print.  With the purchase of their limited edition print, you still get free shipping and handling and two inserts.

Overall, I would definitely recommend Glow Bug Cloth Diapers.

  7. That photo of Charis and her doll is just too sweet. The diaper is lovely, too, but she steals the show. Sounds like a cool diaper.

  8. I agree. I'd much rather buy one or two and try them before buying 6 or 12. It's nice that you get a free wet bag when you buy 12 though.

  19. I don't like that some shops don't allow you to buy diapers individually. I'm too afraid to buy a whole set of something that might not work for my baby. The glow bug diapers are cute though!
