My opinion, based only on their Website, is: These would be better for the environment than entirely-disposable diapers because they contain less total material and no plastic, but they would not be as environmentally-friendly as home-laundered cloth diapers. They would not be better for baby's health because they contain sodium polyacrylate gel (which is questionable) and they are "elemental chlorine free" which means they aren't bleached in the most carcinogenic way but probably are bleached by a more modern process that still leaves traces of dioxin.<br><br>
I wouldn't use them. But I love cloth diapers! If someone is totally unwilling to use cloth, I think g diapers or the gel-free, chlorine-free disposables are a good compromise.

They are great if you aren't relying on a boat toilet or septic tank! Use a liner if you are going to flush...it makes it so much easier and less messy. The downside, incredibly expensive! They don't absort nearly as much a regular diaper..not sure about cloth. Plus, per unit cost is much higher. We went back to Seventh Generation Diapers......they attempt to make an ecological difference, and since we live on a boat we don't have a washing machine so don't want to deal with cloth! The g -diaper covers are really cute though.....we still use those under dresses!

I have tried gDiapers and find that they don't work all that well. I love the idea, as we just cannot manage cloth, but they are leaky, and frankly, unless you have a changing station in the bathroom, they are messy. We use, instead, Tushies, and have had great success with them.

I tried the g's. I was originally using sposies and overcome with guilt, I thought these sounded like a great idea. Far from a great idea, they are too expensive and pretty gross. I seemed to get poo everywhere when I was trying to rip the liner. I NEVER changed a poo diaper without getting it on my hands and on the sides of the toilet. They didn't flush very well and I had to plunge about every other time to get it to go down. I gave up on them. Blah. Instead I switched to bumis whisper wraps and prefolds. Cloths diapers are way less gross and complicated and cheaper in the long run. I am just sad I wasted the money on the g's. I could of used it for something better... hmm... like maybe a yacht or a fancy summer home.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink">
