I wanted to register for cloth diapers to be economical, healthy for baby, and good to the environment so I did some research.  What my final decision came down to was ease of use, and purchase so I chose gDiapers as the system I will use for my baby. gDiapers are available online and in most Babies R Us locations.  It was important to me to be able to run out and get supplies without being tied down to on-line buying and this was the easiest option to go with.

These diapers work in 2 different ways.  You can use an entirely cloth system, or environmentally friendly flushable inserts.  My plan is to start off with the flushable inserts, and then when I become more comfortable with the process possibly move to the cloth only system.

In a nutshell there is an outside diaper cover, and an inside snap in plastic liner.    Then you can chose between placing a cloth or disposable insert inside of the diaper.  The diaper is easily fastened to baby with velcro.  The cloth system is optimal for cost, but the disposable inserts are a great convenience.  They are actually made to flush in your toilet to avoid that stinky diaper pail, but if you are on the go and throw them out they are biodegradable and compostable as well.

Besides being reusable, this system is made from sustainably farmed materials which limits its environmental impact.   I also like that they are cost effective - there is a great article comparing cost on the Mint.com blog worth checking out if you have a chance.  Another thing I noticed is that people are selling used gDiapers onEbay so when my baby grows out of each size I will be able to get a return on my investment

To me the choice was easy.  I registered for the Newborn Bundle which is a great package that includes 12 newborn gPants, 6 small gPants, and 80 disposable inserts to get me started.  I definitely plan on having this handy in the nursery when the baby arrives.  Now to find out the sex of the baby so I can order some more in the cute colors offered.
