Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review/Giveaway


Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

Glow Bugs are unique and different than other cloth diapers for many reasons:
  • Our diapers are sold in packages of 12 in stylish Girl’s prints, Boy’s prints and vibrant Spectrum colours
  • Each diaper includes 2 absorbent snap-in inserts
  • Made with NEW SlimDry™ fabric for the trimmest fit
  • Each set of 12 diapers are packaged in a free wet bag!!!
  • Our packages are affordable at only $150 for 12 diapers, 24 inserts and a free coordinating wet bag!
Our Design Features:
  • Two sets of cross-over snaps through the waist band for a perfect fit around newborn tummies
  • Double rows of snaps with square tabs for a trim fit through the hip
  • Four size settings fitting babies from birth through potty training (7lbs-35lbs)
  • Coordinating coloured snaps for every print
  • Waterproof flaps in the front and the back of each diaper to prevent leaks
  • Double gusset through the leg for an extra barrier of protection
  • NEW SlimDry™ fabric keeps baby’s skin dry without the bulk
  • Two openings in the pocket makes it easier to get the absorbent inset in and out
  • Snap-in inserts to keep it in place while baby’s on the move



 I am so excited to be sharing my first cloth diaper review with you all!! When I was pregnant with my our first child and my husband suggested that we use cloth diapers my response was "you do know what century we live in, right?" well he did and we used disposables. By the time I became pregnant with our 2nd child I said "You do know all the horrible chemicals that are in disposables dont you? Lets go cloth!" and we did! We have been using cloth since our 2nd son was 2 weeks old and he is now almost 14 months, we love our cloth diapers! And while my husband has a particular brand he grabs everytime he does a diaper change , I like to try new brands out as often as financially possible.
  I find cloth diapering to be a "strange" addiction. They are just so much more fun than I had ever anticipated. They are just so cute that you keep wanting to buy more!! SO I was thrilled to have the chance to review a diaper from Glow Bug Cloth Diapers.
  Before I received my diaper I did a lot of reading about it on their website and the more I read the more excited I became to try out this diaper. I love that these diapers will fit baby from 7-35lbs, I love that the insert snaps into the diaper to help it stay in place while baby moves and I love the cute prints they offer!
  My diaper arrived and I prepped it right away! I couldn't wait to put it on my little guy! We were sent this cute little guitar print (my hubby plays guitar, so it was perfect!)


 My little one has actually worn this diaper twice already , the first time he just peed in it, so lets be honest the 2nd time I put it on him I was hoping for some poo (I normally do not anxiously await poopy diapers, but I really wanted to see how well the diaper kept it all in).  This is the only cloth diaper I own that has double guessets so I had high hopes and this diaper exceeded my expectations! Not only did it hold everything in, I just love how the insert stays put because of the little snap.


   If I were to have any complaints about this diaper it would be that after some movement the top of the diaper kind of folds over. Neta with Glow Bug Diapers gave me this video to watch on a way to prevent that though, so my next time using this diaper I will need to try that out! ;-)

  This does not affect the performance of the diaper at all, it only matters here because I am totally that mom that thinks a cute cloth diaper constitutes as my kid being dressed :) (No worries, when we go out he does get fully clothed)
   Honestly, I am in love with these diapers!!! I only wish that you could buy them individually. Glow Bug diapers are only sold in bulk of 12 diapers, and like I said before I like to have a variety of diapers in my stash...however we did just find out we are having a baby girl in Sept and Glow Bug has some ADORABLE girl prints, so I might just have to cave and buy a dozen ;-) priced at only $150 for 12 the price is hard to beat. And I think my little guy likes them too.  Glow Bug does however offer a limited print that is available to be bought individually, when that print is gone another one rolls in :) To see the print available now go here.
  Glow Bug Diapers has been generous enough to offer a giveaway for one of you to win a diaper in your choice of girl print, boy print or gender neutral. I will leave this open until Thursday May 10th. Good Luck!
