I have known I wanted to cloth diaper my children way before I even began seriously thinking about actually having kids. I had used cloth menstrual pads for some time so it seemed like a logical step forward. Once I hit 12 weeks in my pregnancy I gave myself the go ahead to purchase my very first baby related item; cloth diapers! Let’s start with the unboxing!
I ordered my diapers from Green Mountain Diapers. I’ve heard only good things about the company so I felt confident that the products were going to be high quality and I wasn’t disappointed.
My package came in over the weekend and I just got around to opening it this morning. I was really surprised that they were able to get so much in such a small bag. Kudos to them for reducing packaging materials.
Here we go. The contents!
- a dozen,”newborn”, non-bleached Cloth-eez prefold diapers
- Thirsties duo wrap cover with snaps, size 1
- an organic Cloth-eez workhorse fitted diaper, newborn size
- Snappi diaper fasteners
- a free set of diaper safety pins
I also got a quick start guide that I admittedly didn’t read and is now 100% lost. So I really can’t tell you what was on it. My bad.
First out of the bag are the prefolds.
With the GMD, the size of the prefolds determines the color of the stitching and because this is a newborn size, the stitching here is orange. A quick note about the stitching: it’s solid. I imagine these prefolds last a long time.
Here’s a view if the flip side of the tag.
Alright. The rest of the contents came in a separate plastic bag.
The closures; one set of snappis, by snappi baby and a set of pins, which came free.
The workhorse diaper is so. freaking. cute. The fabric is so soft. They use the same concept with the stitching as with the prefolds; orange stitching to differentiate the size, this one being a newborn size. It comes with multiple snaps to better fit baby.
Better view of the snaps. Don’t ask me what the one backwards snap is all about, I have no idea. Maybe for a tighter fit?
Here a a view of the inside.
And a back view.
Ekkk! I love these. They are adorable. These are the Thirsties dup wrap cover with snaps…the cactus print, of course.
Here is a better view of all the snaps. This is a size 1 so it should fit baby from birth until 15-18lbs.
Ok, that’s everything. I say it was a success for my very first baby purchase! I happy with all the items that I bought. Everything seems to be top notch quality but only time will tell!!
Have you used Green Mountain Diapers? How do you like them?
