Cloth diaper giveaway event!

 

Welcome to day number 30 of 30 Days of Dipes!

Today is sponsored by:

30 Days of Dipes Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

Today is the last official day of the 30 Days of Dipes event and we’ve got another great joint giveaway for you!  Glow Bug Cloth Diapers is giving away a 6-pack of pocket diapers to one of you!  Check out what Jen and Lori had to say about the Glow Bug diapers and how they worked for their boys.  Again, this is a joint giveaway so the Rafflecopter form will be the same on each page and only 1 prize will be awarded!  This giveaway is open to US and Canada.

 

The Dirty Details:

I’m a sucker for hot boy prints.  Pirates, skulls, cowboys…I love them all!  It seems like the girl prints kind of take over so as a mom to all boys,  I was excited to see some fun boy print pocket diapers!

Day Use: 4.0Bums Up

Overnight Use: 2.0 Bums Up

Ease of Use: 4.0 Bums Up

Quality: 4.0 Bums Up

Overall: 3.50 Bums Up

 

Daytime Use: The Glow Bug was perfect for daytime use.  It fits trim, we had no leaks.  It was a great daytime diaper for us.  And like I said before- it has the bonus of being cute- more than once I put this on one of the boys when they went to therapy because really,  who doesn’t love a little skully diaper peeking out over the top of a toddlers jeans?

30 Days of Dipes Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

Overnight Use: Pockets and microfiber inserts have failed us every time and this diaper was no exception.  A smaller, younger baby (or every other baby on the planet judging by the number of people who love pockets for overnight) would probably be fine with this diaper.

30 Days of Dipes Glow Bug cloth Diapers

Ease of Use: This is pretty easy to stuff.  It only has 2 snaps on each wing which makes changes go faster but there is a little more wing droop and it is easier for my two strippers to get these off.  Obviously not a problem if your kids aren’t into taking off their diapers!

30 Days of Dipes Glow Bug pocket diapers

Quality: This is a pretty standard diaper with a few extra touches.  The snap in insert is a favorite of mine, as are the double leg-gussets.  The inside micro-fleece lining is a bit thin, but that is by design so it fits a little more trim.

30 Days of Dipes Glow Bug pocket Diapers

Overall: I think this is a great option for starting out in cloth diapering or building your stash quickly and fairly inexpensively.  Glow Bug sells their diapers in bulk- either 6 or 12 packs!  I would recommend these to anyone who was wanting to get into cloth with an easy to use diaper that is not intimidating to Dads, Grandparents or Daycares!

Glow Bug is giving away a 6-Pack of their diapers- a $75 value! 

This is a joint giveaway listed on The Slacker Mom, Life with Levi and The Gnome’s Mom.

Please go to the 30 Days of Dipes page by clicking the button and follow through to enter this giveaway.

Giveaway Open to US and Canada!

Thank you and good luck!

    I love the print of that diaper! I have a Glow Bug and I like it, especially the fact that I don't have to unstuff it before putting it in the wash

  13. 13 Ana Davidson said at 10:45 am on January 30th, 2012:

    I love the print too but hubby is not a fan. We loves the fact that it has crossover snaps so I can use it on my NB and on my toddler.

  14. 14 Sonya said at 11:55 am on January 30th, 2012:

    I hope i win!!!

  19. 19 Meghan V. said at 12:16 pm on January 30th, 2012:

    I have all boys right now and think you are right. The cloth diapering world seems to make more of the cute girl prints than boy prints

  20. 20 Denise Taylor said at 12:17 pm on January 30th, 2012:

    Love the prints they offer and the double leg gussets! This looks like it would be a great daycare diaper.

    I LOVE the skull print!

  52. 52 thetruthaboutmom4 said at 10:59 pm on January 30th, 2012:

    I also love that skull print – and I agree about the whole girls prints/stuff overtake things. It seems like time after time you get the same prints/designs with boys clothes and diapers, while girl stuff is so varied and cute. It's nice to see something that isn't the same puppy dog/car/monster truck dealio.

  53. 53 Sarah Wells said at 12:11 am on January 31st, 2012:

    I like that skull print! So cute! Thanks for the review! I love pockets, but hate them for overnight as well! lol 🙂

    I love the prints for these diapers! I wish she's sell them individually though! 🙂

  56. 56 Olivia Lasting said at 1:28 am on January 31st, 2012:

    The snap in insert is a pretty neat feature 🙂 ngiraldi at gmail dot com

  61. 61 Trisha W. said at 12:01 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    I'm not currently diapering a boy, but I do know what you mean about print availability. Heck, it's even hard to find cute clothes that don't have dumb dinosaurs and such on EVERYTHING.

  62. 62 Jessica said at 12:03 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    I too wish I could try one without buying a whole set – they look great but I worry about fit.

  63. 63 Renee said at 12:31 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    Cute print!

  64. 64 Sarah Jane said at 1:49 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    I like their prints. I only wish that you didn't have to buy 12 diapers in order to try them.

    I've been wanting to try a Glow Bug diaper for a a long time. I like the double gussets!

  66. 66 Manda said at 5:57 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    I agree wish you could buy just one or 2 and not be commited to a whole package of 12. thats alot of diapers to just buy all at once.

  67. 67 Brigitte B. said at 8:39 pm on January 31st, 2012:

    I like that you said it's good for starting a stash as that's what I'm currently in the process of beginning….easy and inexpensive sounds great!

  77. 77 natalie h said at 10:59 pm on February 2nd, 2012:

    I like the variety of prints and double gussets

  78. 78 Mrs. Smitty said at 11:46 pm on February 2nd, 2012:

    They've got some amazing girls prints, but I'm also wary about the package sales. I wish they had an option to try a single diaper out before you have to commit to them. At least they're doing blog reviews so potential customers can get a feel for them.

    This is a great review! I love your grading system! I am new to cloth diapering so this really helps me to choose the right diaper!

  80. 80 Samantha Allen said at 9:29 am on February 3rd, 2012:

    I think this would be one of my husband's favorite diapers simply because of the two openings in the pocket. He hates pulling inserts out, so this way he wouldn't have to! 🙂

  81. 81 Elizabeth E said at 10:09 am on February 3rd, 2012:

    I really like the fact that they have double gussets. Looks like a great diaper!

  82. 82 rebecca w said at 7:24 pm on February 3rd, 2012:

    My favorite feature is the two sets of cross-over snaps through the waist band for a perfect fit around newborn tummies

  83. 83 JustCorey said at 11:51 pm on February 3rd, 2012:

    cute boy prints are always a plus… especially for me, a mother of two boys both under two and still in dipes 🙂

    I love the print of that diaper, so cute! I took a look at their site, they have SO many great prints! I really like that the pocket is open at both ends & I'm liking those double gussets too.

  88. 88 Marianela Aybar said at 8:32 pm on February 4th, 2012:

    I don't really like that the overnight use is not so great because I have a big wetter on my hands. I would love to win these thought because it would be great for daytime use

  91. 91 Ruth said at 9:45 am on February 6th, 2012:

    I love the print too! My LO would leak all over this at night too. We don't use pockets for nighttime, and he's only 6 months!

  92. 92 Amanda J. said at 10:38 am on February 6th, 2012:

    I'm not a fan of the skull-print craze. But, theylook like cute dipes & I'm glad to know the overnight status, as we've found the same w/microfiber!

  93. 93 Jodi J said at 6:14 pm on February 6th, 2012:

    We have also always had problems with microfiber – it always amazes me that so many people love microfiber when we get nothing but leaks. I'm curious about the snap-in insert that you mentioned and would love to know how it works.

  94. 94 Becky Worthman said at 10:49 am on February 8th, 2012:

    Did any one else have trouble with their babies removing the diapere easily? I love the prints!

  95. 95 Melinda Ciaccia said at 1:56 pm on February 8th, 2012:

  106. 106 Jessica said at 3:47 pm on February 12th, 2012:

    I appreciate the honesty in this review. I feel like too often I read reviews that are overly supportive of the diaper and not realistic.

  107. 107 Ellen Franklin said at 11:26 pm on March 13th, 2013:

    Great – even diapers can be fashion statements these days. That is, of course, until the baby decides to drop the load in it.
