Glow Bug Diapers Review & Giveaway 2/5

From the About Us section of Glow Bug

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers story begins with our babies. Long before the company existed, there were two Moms who found friendship during pre-natal yoga class. Neta and I became close friends through the course of our pregnancies. We were thrilled when my daughter Amelia was born only weeks after Neta’s daughter Ela in 2007. We both discovered and enjoyed using cloth diapers on our girls.

After the birth of Neta’s son Edder and my daughter Gloria in 2010, we were both looking for new cloth diapers. Neta and I had the same concerns with the available brands. All we wanted were good quality, affordable cloth diapers but we were really frustrated that the product we were looking for did not seem to exist. What better solution to our dilemma than to start our own company that would sell amazing quality cloth diapers at a great price?

P.S. If you are wondering why we called the company Glow Bug Cloth Diapers, there are two reasons. First of all, “Glow Bug” is my nickname for Gloria and second, because I always thought a baby in cloth diapers looks like a cute little bug with that sweet round bum.

I was excited to try Glow Bug cloth diapers, because I love knowing what all is out there and that is why our stash is so diverse. When I went to their site one day and noticed the cupcake diaper, I knew I just had to have it so I was thrilled when Glow Bug agreed to a review and giveaway, and after their shipment came in, my diaper arrived!

I don't like to compare to other brands but I just can't help it this time. This diaper is almost exactly like a GoGreen Champ pocket diaper. They have ALMOST all the same features and work in the same way.

I really like the diaper, except a couple things. There's pockets at both ends, but the tag says to unsnap and remove insert, leg gussets aren't very big so in theory they would still hold in little baby explosions but I feel better seeing a nice thick leg gusset to ensure the mess is contained, and there's only one set of snaps. Since my daughter is petite, most diapers have to have hip snaps otherwise she gets horrible wings droop and while the Glow Bug diaper only has the one set of snaps, I'm happy to say it stays on her well but if I could change this and add the extra hip snaps, I would!

Glow Bug Diapers are sold in sets of 12 as boy, girl, or neutral sets for $150 Canadian money. This is a great price for these diapers, especially since they all come with two inserts! I do wish they had the option to buy single diapers because there are some prints I would love to have without buying 12.
  • Each set of 12 diapers are packaged in a free wet bag!!!
  • Two sets of cross-over snaps through the waist band for a perfect fit around newborn tummies
  • Double rows of snaps with square tabs for a trim fit through the hip
  • Four size settings fitting babies from birth through potty training (7lbs-35lbs)
  • Coordinating coloured snaps for every print
  • Waterproof flaps in the front and the back of each diaper to prevent leaks
  • Double gusset through the leg for an extra barrier of protection
  • NEW SlimDry fabric keeps baby’s skin dry without the bulk
  • Two openings in the pocket makes it easier to get the absorbent insert in and out
  • Snap-in inserts to keep it in place while baby’s on the move
