This morning I woke up and had an idea…We got some gDiaper (small size) but not the flushable refills, and I was wondering if the maxi pad will fit in it. The result was it fits perfectly. With the equate (Walmart store brand) , maxi with flex-wings Dri-Soft Cotton-like Cover Super (medium size), you stick the flexi-wings to the waterproof liner of the gDiaper and makes it a perfect combination of a cloth and disposable diapers. This might be good for the transitional phase and traveling. Compared with the price of the disposable newborn diapers, maxi pads cost only half, and there’s less paper that goes into the landfill. I hope babies won’t mind it and its absorbent, it looks pretty comfy to me!
For the rest of the cloth diapers we have – BumGenius, BabyKicks, FuzzyBuns, etc. – some do not have the waterproof liner so we are going to use the home-made refills. Mom dug out the cotton shirts I was going to donate to Goodwill and cut them into the proper size, Lijuan’s mom sewed them and they sure look great!
