A while ago I published a review of gDiapers, Seventh Generation diapers and Whole Food 365 diapers.
In the meantime I’ve received comments and questions from discerning and concerned readers, gained some more hands-on (hah!) experience with the gDiapers, and found some more questions on the net.
These are additional questions that I am now investigating:
- What is the “poly” in Seventh Generation? I assumed it was polyurethane, and left it at that, but a reader suggests: “It is still plastic; in fact, it’s the same polypropolene used to line landfills (that’s how water-tight and air-tight they are!).” I’ve written to Seventh Generation for clarification.
- Another concern is where that absorbant woodpulp comes from. Many (other) disposables get it straight from China, which raises many environmental and health concerns (e.g., poisoned toothpaste, melamine in pet food, and antifreeze in medicines).
- After a couple more weeks of using gDiapers, Amie started complaining that they are “too tight” and “hurt”. So, as per her request, in the update I will also address the sizing issue of gDiapers, the scratchiness of their velcro, and the lack of an Extra Large size.
- There will also be some musing on the gDiaper leaking-issue, and the staining of the snap-in/out liners.
If you have any other questions you want me to investigate, email me or comment on this post. (I just realized readers can’t comment on “pages”, which is what my review is, only on “posts”: will try to do something about that soon!)
