All of our boys have worn cloth nappies; that’s not to say that they haven’t also worn disposables when the occasion called for it, but given a choice I like fluffy bottoms. Most people would probably imagine that this is because I am keen to save the environment (especially since I was head of geography before maternity leaves took over my career) but those that know me, especially the mister, know it’s because of one thing…
They’re pretty. Or maybe two..they’re pretty AND I can buy lots of them.
And I did.
When Baby Hero was born in July, I was introduced to gNappies again. I tried a gDiaper years ago when I was sent one by a friend in the USA but I didn’t really understand how they were better than a disposable as I couldn’t flush them like the Americans could, and so I pretty much discarded it because I also couldn’t get the refills for the gDiaper without importing them.
This time my gNappies experience is very different. Yes, I did squeal with delight at the teeny little sharks on the limited edition great white shark print (which we sported on Instagram), and daydream over how cute Baby Hero would look with his pumpkin orange gNappy at Hallowe’en (he did, and we won a cute baby competition with him wearing them!), but there was an even better reason to use gNappies now. They’re kind to the Earth.
But before I get to that bit, let’s talk about the bit I enjoy the most…the shopping!
One pair of gPants will set you back around £14.95. Each pair comes with a waterproof cradle for whichever insert you choose; cloth or bio-degradable. Most moms I know recommend having at least 6-8 on hand, and you can buy a various bundles to save money, too. The bio-degradable inserts come in packs of 32-40 and cost around £8.95. We get ours from Ocado.
You can shop online at gNappies and get a 10% discount when you spent £100 or more, too.
There’s a wide range of colours available, and not only that, but they add to their core colour collection twice a season with gPants limited edition designs (we love the Be Kind print). I LOVE limited edition pants, especially seasonal ones; Little Dragon spent most of his first year in coordinated leg warmers and nappies. I blame it on being an 80’s child.
Aside from wanting Baby Hero to look the bomb in his nappy, using gNappies has increased our other boys’ understanding of how the world works, too! Tomorrow we’ll be talking about gNappies and the Hot Bin (or Clay Face, as Lyoto calls him it)… Pop back and see!
