Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

I received the below mentioned product in exchange for this review. 

     I love using cloth diapers.  With Jayden I started to cloth diaper him at about 2 months, but with Evan I have cloth diapered him since he came home from the hospital.  I love how cute they are and that I save money by not buying diapers I just throw away.  I really do have a variety of diapers in my stash.  I like different diapers for different things.  I was recently sent a Glow Bug diaper to try out.  I actually have a couple of Glow Bug Diapers that I won before Evan was born, but they are super girlie (didn't know what I was having, guess I should have gone gender neutral) so I have not used them.  I have thought about exchanging them, but just have not taken the time.  So when I was given the chance to try one in a boy print I was excited to see how it did.

     Glow Bug Diapers feature a 360 degree gusset.  That means there is literally a circle sewn in the middle of the diaper to help contain any possible mess. Glow Bug Diapers are one size fits from newborn to potty training.  They have a double row of snaps with square tabs for a trim fit.  They also have two sets of cross over snaps for a better fit on newborns across the tummy.  These diapers have a slim dry fabric that keeps baby's skin dry without lots of bulk.  They also have a waterproof flap on the front and back to prevent leaks.  The diapers have 2 openings to help position the insert.  Glow Bug Diapers are sold in sets of 12 and with the 12 diapers you get 18 inserts.  The inserts can be snapped together for double the thickness.

    The diaper I received has has a white background with red wrenches all over it.  After the initial couple of washing I was ready to try this diaper out.  I noticed right away that the material is very light.  The fit was good and I like that it adjusts to 4 different settings.  Evan was sure to give this diaper a good test.  And there were no leaks.  I decided to take my chances one night and use it for his night time diaper.  Evan is not as heavy as a night wetter as Jayden used to be, but nights are always tricky.  You don't want your baby in a soaked diaper for so many hours if you can help it, but at the same time there is no way your going to wake them for a change.  So we started the night with our Glow Bug diaper.  When we woke in the morning Evan had no leaks.  After removing the diaper I checked out Evan's bottom and there was no redness at all.  Sometimes when a wet diaper is on baby's bottom all night he has redness, but not with the Glow Bug diaper.  That means it was able to pull the wetness away.

     Overall I am very happy with this diaper.  No leaks and works over night!  My only complaint on these diapers would be that you have no choice of prints.  The prints are cute, but you have to buy in a bundle and your only choice is girl, boy, or gender neutral.  I like to actually pick out the prints I like.  Also, it would be nice to get just a couple of diapers and not a whole lot of 12.  As someone that is reusing diapers from my first I just wanted to update my stash with a couple of fun new prints, but I don't want to purchase a whole dozen and I'd like to pick what I like.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.


  1. I never did cloth diapering with my son he is 4 and I know the cloth diaper craze was just getting started then. Now there are so many options. If I were going to have another one I would probably use cloth diapers at least part time.

  2. i love these cloth diapers,they are so cute,i wish i would of started my daughter with them.
