gNappies gPants Review

Last Wednesday, I posted about gNappies first gVideo! (If you missed it, you can see it here). They also very kindly sent us 2 gPants (size M), 2 microfibre reusable inserts and 15 disposable inserts.

As I've posted before, we are only just transitioning from disposable nappies to cloth nappies. I'd always wanted to use cloth from the get go but I never gave them enough thought and I assumed it would be too much hassle with C being my first baby. Now he is 10 months old and I feel as though I'm a pro at being a mummy so I went for it! 

Before now, I'd only ever tried one size fits all cloth nappies with poppers. I'll be honest, they're a little bit scary so I was quite happy to see that gNappies had Velcro fasteners. Popper nappies are also pocketed so I was surprised that you only had to tuck in the liner as I'd never seen these before (see photo below). 

In my eyes, this makes them so much simpler. I don't need to change the nappy at every change, just the liner. The Velcro has also made my life easier as I'm not constantly thinking, "Ooh, I wonder if I've buttoned that up right? What if he leaks?" They make the transition so much smoother.

I'll be honest and say that with the popper nappies, I've had some leaks (probably due to fastening) but we haven't had a single problem with the gPants (neither with a disposable liner nor microfibre - even during the night!) and I use one liner for 2-3 hours.

They are very compact and easily fit underneath C's clothes. He hasn't had any rashes with them and seems very comfortable. I actually get sad when I need to wash them and he has to wear a different nappy. gPants are my new love and I really don't want him to wear any other nappy! (Might have to buy all the ones that gNappies have on sale!)

If you're looking into changing to cloth nappies, I really cannot recommend gNappies enough. I'm really having trouble thinking of any negatives. They are totally worth the money. Even my partner thinks they're great and he's not a fan of cloth! As I mentioned before, they're great for transitioning. You won't regret it! 

You can find gNappies at their website, Facebook and Twitter.
These cloth nappies retail at £14.95 each.
