I am a 27 year old stay at home mom and this is my day to day life raising two silly little boys. I'm the dorkiest redneck hippie you'll ever meet! I mean, how many people can say that? If only my kids knew how cool their mom was...
I also have Psoriatic Arthritis that sometimes makes chasing 2 boys a little difficult but all in all I am incredibly blessed and thank God everyday for the wonderful life that I have!
AKA: Bubbe, Very energetic, smart, talkative 5 year old little boy. My miracle baby, it took me 3 years and 2 miscarriages to get pregnant with him. He was worth the wait though! He's mommy's special little man.
AKA: Monkey, 3 year old sweetheart with a temper! Very loving and cuddly. A very big mamas boy. He has always been bigger than average kids his age. He's my big teddy bear!
Kim from Green Acre Designs recently sent me a Gad Baby diaper with a hemp insert to try out. I was secretly hoping for a black one so I was thrilled to find a black one with red micro fleece inner layer in the mail box! I've been wanting a black diaper ever since I saw these on Gad Babys website.
I love,love, love this diaper! I love the side snaps so Gage can't take it off (he really enjoys running around stark naked). I love the color selection. I really like that you can get a different colored inner than outer. Most diapers just have white inners or are the same color as the outer. I love how trim they are. They aren't bulky at all. Gage can actually wear pants over it. Usually I have to put a pair of Gavins size 3's to go over my other cloth diapers. I also really love the prices. Gad diapers are very affordable compared to most other brands. Most of the diapers are $15.95.
I was a little bit nervous trying the hemp insert. I had never used hemp before and knew that you have to prep it before you can use it. I got a lot of tips from wonderful mamas that had experience with hemp so I washed it 4 times and put it on Gage. I did actually have a leak the first time I put the diaper on him but thinking back, I think I miscounted and had only washed it 3 times! After that, I washed and dried it again and haven't had a leak since.
Here's some pictures of Gage wearing his GAD Baby diaper...
