About 6 months ago, I ran across Glow Bug Cloth Diapers while on a quest to find affordable cloth diapers. The catch was that I wanted cute and affordable cloth diapers for my little boy. Finding cloth diapers made with cute prints that were also less than $15 a diaper was proving to be a challenge until I discovered Glow Bug Cloth Diapers. At Glow Bug you can get a package of 12 diapers for $150! That works out to be $12.50 a diaper! As part of the package, you also receive 24 inserts and a coordinating wet bag! It’s everything that you need to get started!
My favorite part about the Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is the fact that you don’t have to settle for plain white cloth diapers or a collection of pastel yellows, blues, and greens. You can had a variety of amazingly fun prints, even if you’re cloth diapering a little boy! Finding great prints for boys that aren’t $25 – $35 a diaper has been one of my biggest cloth diaper challenges! Yes, I love the cute factor when it comes to cloth diapering.
Glow Bug Cloth Diapers offers affordable diapers with cute prints for both boys and girls!
I also like the gender neutral package they offer because it has my favorite diaper colors! I love red, orange, and black diapers! I could have easily purchased a boy package and a spectrum package and had an amazing diaper stash for $300!
Back in October when I first reviewed Glow Bug Cloth Diapers, W was only 10 months old and he was still at the top of the growth charts but had actually dropped to around the 93rd percentile. The diaper worked well for us back then. It had a high rise that was exactly what we needed. It was also snaps which I wasn’t thrilled about at the time, but is now an essential feature for us if we don’t want a naked toddler running around! Now that W is 35 pounds, which is the weight limit for most one size diapers, I’m very interested in seeing how they work for us.
When I first opened the envelope from Glow Bug, I was thrilled! I love the print and it goes great with W’s rock and roll type shirts! It may not be for everyone, but we love it! I was eager to prep the diaper and try it on him. I was hoping that since the Glow Bug Cloth Diapers were generously sized, that the new one would fit W even though he is as big as most two-year olds we know!
Using the outer snaps, the diaper did fit W and the rise was just high enough although if he gets much taller, we might have some trouble! For general information, W was 32.5 inches tall at his checkup about a month ago so he is definitely on the tall side! We did not have any leaks while he was wearing it, which is one of my biggest concerns. We have a little room to grow with the snaps but not much in the rise although everyone keeps telling me that W’s growth will slow down soon! They have been saying this for 6 months and I’m still waiting!
