Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Reivew {Giveaway}


Disclosure: I received product from Glow Bug Cloth Diapers to help facilitate my review, I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own and completely honest. 

Glow Bug cloth diapers were started by Sarah and Neta when their search for good quality, inexpensive cloth diapers ended with unsatisfactory results.

The diaper design they came up with is fantastic and has a reasonable price tag!



Glow Bug cloth diapers are one size diapers, meaning they'll fit from birth to potty training. They have a snap down rise (x-small, small, medium and unsnapped is large). They also have cross over snaps to ensure a snug fit around a newborns waist. Cross over snaps are also great for on-the-go. You can easily roll up and snap the diaper in a similar manner as you would do with a soiled disposable.

Smallest Rise Setting


Largest Diaper Setting

This is a pocket style diaper and comes with a three layer microfiber insert.



Each insert has a male and female snap allowing you to snap the insert into the shell as well as snap in an extra insert. It is great to have the snap in feature if you are using a pocket diaper that doesn't have the extra protection in front with a tummy panel. But these ladies thought of everything! There is a tummy panel in front and even a leak proof flap in the back to keep the moisture on the insert from wicking onto baby's clothes.

This diaper is the old design which has double leg gussets. They just came out with a new design that has a 360 degree gusset. Which seems like it would be great at preventing blowouts for a baby that is exclusively breastfed.




Another great feature of this diaper is that it has a pocket opening in both the front and back. This tunnel design makes washing super easy. There is no need to remove the insert before throwing the diaper in the wash because it will agitate out on its own. I was pretty skeptical of this at first. But wash after wash, the insert agitates out every time. You can even leave the insert snapped in. It will come out of the diaper shell but remain snapped (diaper turns inside out) so you don't have to go sorting through your inserts after washing.


Bug-A-Boo seems to enjoy his GlowBug cloth diaper! He weighs about 23 lbs. We have it on the medium setting (one snap down). So far we haven't had any leaks. Bug sleeps on his tummy which makes diapering for naps and overnights difficult. Because of the tummy panel we also had successful nap time diapering with our Glow Bug diaper. 

I don't typically recommend buying diapers in bulk until you know for sure what you like and what works best for your baby. But honestly, there is nothing I would change about this diaper. If you are just starting with cloth this is definitely a diaper worth looking into.
