gcloth

I was just gifted a bunch of gdiapers and gcloth. I dont plan on using the gdiaper cover things but am curious if the gcloth is worth using? Does it absorb well? what is it made of?

I have been using it with my 3 month old since he was born... It is made of hemp and microfleece. It works just fine. I would say it is not as absorbant as the microfiber so you will need to change more frequent. But it keeps baby dry and cleans up awesome with minimal effort.

Re: gcloth

I love gcloth for stuffing my pockets. I find it stays in place better than most inserts (rather than bunching up and getting squashed to one side or the other) as it's got a bit of structure to it.

Sure they can, just put the hemp side against whatever your main soaker will be.

Re: gcloth

I use gcloth over a trifolded prefold in a Flip cover for our nighttime diaper. It works great! The micro fleece keeps DS feeling dry and the hemp side offers more absorbency. DS is almost 4 months and I don't have to change his diaper at night.

Re: gcloth

they are only two layers of absorbent fabric, so for much of a heavy wetter they won't last, but we use them for a night doubler too. since there are two layers of microfleece they keep baby really dry.
