Hi-- I've never posted here before, but I was hoping someone could help me. We really want to use cloth diapers, and thought that gDiapers sounded like such a convenient system. We've been using them for about a week now, and some days we've had very frequent leaks. Today, for example, my daughter somehow leaked through ALL the covers we have, so now she's wearing a disposable (a.k.a. a "500-year diaper") while the covers are being washed. It's very frustrating to want to use a system so much, and then have it not work. I can see why people use disposables-- I just really don't want to!
I'm waiting for membership acceptance into the gdiaper Yahoo group, and hopefully I can get some help there, but thought I'd check here, too. We've invested about $130 into gDiapers already, and the thought of spending even more on another whole "system" makes me sick! We have used both the gDiaper cloth inserts & the biodegradable inserts, and both seem to have leaking issues. My daughter is approximately 3.5 weeks old, and weighs around 9-10 pounds. She's wearing the 8-14-pound small size. She seems to leak most around the waist area when she's laying down. Any help/suggestions would be much appreciated!
