Glow Bug Cloth Diaper Review and Giveaway

Glow Bug Cloth Diaper company graciously sent me a sample to review. You can find the features and out of package review here. I liked the diaper right out of the package. I couldn't wait to try this super cute pattern. It's so adorable that I didn't want to put any clothing over it!


The inserts in this pocket diaper are microfiber. I will honestly admit that microfiber is not my favorite insert material, but that is just a personal bias. I was pleasantly surprised by the diaper's absorbency potential. I initially put both inserts in the pocket because my 7 month old daughter is a heavy wetter and generally needs two inserts in her pocket diapers. After 4 hours of wear, not only were there NO leaks but she had absorbency to spare. With only one insert, she could still go several hours with less bulk. She also didn't complain about being in the diaper so long because the stay dry inner lining kept her feeling dry and comfy.  Color me impressed.

The double gussets look really useful and the opening at front and back for the pocket stuffing seem really great too. I was reserving judgement on the actual functionality of such features until it was put into practice. Let me tell you that they are both very nice features. I love that you have the option to take out the inserts from either front or back, depending on which side is least messy. The inserts have a snap to connect it to the cover, but I found it unnecessary and actually a little annoying when it was connected. My daughter tends to wet upwards, so the back of most pocket diapers is clean versus the front. Having to unsnap in the front meant I had to touch wet inserts. However, there's a super easy fix for that; I just don't use the snap. If you're wondering, the inserts did come out of the pocket in the wash, so when I don't use the insert snap, I can just put the dirty diaper in the wash without de-stuffing. Love! The double leg gussets are really nice too. The elastic is not very wide so it doesn't look uncomfortable for the little one.

One unique feature of this one size brand is the 4 size snap rise. This creates 4 different sizes to grow along with your little one. My baby is not young enough to comment on the usefulness at the itty bitty newborn stage, but the fit on my chunky monkey was very nice. At 7 months, she already comfortably fits on the highest rise. However, I do imagine that she could fit in this rise for the remainder of her diapering days.




Overall, I am very impressed with this diaper. It's a cute, creative pocket diaper with great absorbency. The craftsmanship is impeccable. The patterns are adorable. It's competitively priced. If a friend or family member was looking for a recommendation for a microfiber pocket diaper, I would highly recommend this brand. My only suggestion is that the retailer offer smaller packages than 12 diapers. This would reach more customers who aren't sure they want to invest in a complete stash of just one brand.

[Disclaimer: Glow Bug Cloth Diapers did send me a free sample to review, but the opinions I've stated are completely my own.]
