A GLOW bug review...and giveaway.

Trying to find a one size diaper (any type) that will fit J now and still have some room to grow is becoming difficult! Most one size diapers say they fit from birth (7+ lbs) to potty training (35+lbs)...Well J is pushing 34lbs and I am noticing some of his diapers are starting to fit..tight.

I came across a Canadian company called Glow Bug diapers. I have read some great reviews on them. In particular I like how most said they were a great fitting diaper and was surprised to see them on small babies and toddlers! I contacted them to see if they wanted to team up for a review and maybe a giveaway and they said YES to both!! Woo!!

A little bit about Glow Bug Cloth Diapers:

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers story begins with our babies.  Long before the company existed, there were two Moms who found friendship during pre-natal yoga class.  Neta and I became close friends through the course of our pregnancies.  We were thrilled when my daughter Amelia was born only weeks after Neta’s daughter Ela in 2007.  We both discovered and enjoyed using cloth diapers on our girls.
After the birth of Neta’s son Edder and my daughter Gloria in 2010, we were both looking for new cloth diapers.  Neta and I had the same concerns with the available brands.  All we wanted were good quality, affordable cloth diapers but we were really frustrated that the product we were looking for did not seem to exist.   What better solution to our dilemma than to start our own company that would sell amazing quality cloth diapers at a great price?

We knew that there must be lots of other parents out there who want to use cloth diapers but are intimidated by the cost of investing  in good quality diapers.  We are here to help you every step of the way in making the switch to cloth diapers and can’t wait to hear how much you love them!
Happy diapering!

P.S. If you are wondering why we called the company Glow Bug Cloth Diapers, there are two reasons.  First of all, “Glow Bug” is my nickname for Gloria and second, because I always thought a baby in cloth diapers looks like a cute little bug with that sweet round bum.

I was so excited to try out this diaper.. then again I'm always excited!! C says I'm too excited! Anyways...on to the review

I received a one size Glow Bug Diaper in a super cute Apple print. Right off the bat I said I loved that they had a different selection of prints for their diapers. I haven't seen this print before! I like variety...and I'm getting tired of the same old same old prints!

The diaper came with two (2) Snap in Microfiber inserts, which is awesome for double stuffing for nap time or for overnight!

The outer is material is very soft to the touch, but seems durable. The snap placement is great! I really like the cross over snaps to fit a tiny tummy! Yes and the snaps are generous enough to fit J's big belly.
The inner material is again soft, and is made of the new Slim Dry material. This diaper has inner leg gussets which is fabulous. I LOVE gussets! J has made quite a few messes in this diaper (even while out) and it did contain everything. No blow out at all.

Another great feature to the Glow Bug diaper is the LARGE back pocket. This is one if the easiest diapers to stuff. Even C can stuff it with his big ol' hands! It also has a waterproof flap on the back to make sure there are no leaks!

This diaper fits J great. While he is on the largest rise setting, we still have room to grow in the belly which is where we are having difficulties with our other diapers. Our Glow Bug diaper washes very well, and dries super quick! While we do have to use both inserts for nap time, if he is wearing it just around the house for an hour or two then we are fine!

All in all, if you are looking for an affordable way to cloth then I highly suggest Glow Bug cloth diapers. Pocket diaper are so simple and just think about all the money you will save!!
