Glow Bug Out of the Package Review

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is an upcoming cloth diaper company that offers complete packages of pocket diapers. The owner, Sarah, graciously sent me a sample diaper to review. I was so excited when I saw that it came in the mail yesterday. I love getting fluff mail.

Let's review the features:
-pocket diaper with PUL cover lined with "SlimDry" fabric
-snap closure with cross-over snaps for skinny babies
-two rows of snaps at the waist
-double leg gussets to contain messes
-4 rows of snaps for a completely adjustable rise
-openings at the front and back to stuff in inserts
-2 microfiber inserts that snap into the pocket

The diaper I'm reviewing is a girly print, the pink and black plaid. It's a really cute pattern and the snaps match, which is a nice touch. Out of the package, the fabrics are soft but I wouldn't call them plush. After washing, the stay dry liner pilled slightly but it got REALLY soft. I am pleasantly surprised at how much it softened after just washing twice. The microfiber inserts frayed around the edges slightly after washing but they also fluffed up a lot.

While I haven't used the diaper yet (official review of the diaper coming soon), I am excited about seeing how absorbent and leak-proof this diaper is. I love the double opening in the pocket in theory too. I imagine it will be useful for avoiding getting "poop hands" when taking out the inserts. I have also heard that you can just unsnap the inserts and they'll aggregate out in the wash, so I'm excited about seeing if that is true as well. My big 6 month old is already on the largest rise on most OS diapers so I wonder what setting will fit her best on this 4 rise pocket. I know it will look really cute her too.

After letting my little E wear this diaper several times, I'll write my official review. Then Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is generously offering one of my readers a free sample diaper! Watch my blog and Facebook fan page for the giveaway announcement. In the meantime, you can go "like" them on their Facebook fan page.
