Picture of How to Make gDiaper inserts
I was scared of using cloth diapers with pins for fear of poking my son and the cloth diapers were too big for him. Alternative, reusable diaper options were expensive so I decided to get creative.  I purchased the gDiaper, a diaper system that includes diaper shells and reusable inserts.  Paying $28 for 6 inserts seemed outrageous!    This Instructables shows how to create 20 reusable gDiaper inserts for $13.

Purchase cloth diapers andfold one cloth diaper into thirds long ways along the seams in the middle. Fold the diaper in half to find the middle and mark it if needed.

Step 2: Sew and Cut

These won't work for bigger babies or heavy wetters. Gerber's cloth diapers have taken a nose dive quality wise and they do not work well at all. You are better off buying flour sack towels from the kitchen section of any major retailer like Walmart or Target. Wash and dry them a couple times to reach their full absorbancy potential. They will shrink some because they are 100% cotton but will still work better than Gerbers. Gdiapers uses a cotton and hemp blend for their gcloths, that's why they are costly. Hemp and bamboo blends are very popular with cloth diapering because of their absorbing powers, but of course are more expensive then cotton. Anyways, I just wanted to share a little from my own experience with cloth diapers!
Cheap, easy, & effective - good work!
