    I don’t have any yet! But I will imagine the comments from the peanut gallery about my choice to cloth diaper will be my biggest frustration.

    My biggest diaper frustration is trying to do the research to decide what I want to try before I have given birth!!

  3. taylorandchloe says:

    My biggest frusteration is that cloth diapering is not mainstream, so I can’t just run down to the local store to buy when needed.

    our cloth diapers have been used by four children. yes, four. so you can imagine that the integrity of the elastic is waning, at best. i am so frustrated with changing full outfits because we can’t afford new diapers, and i don’t have a sewing machine or time to hand sew replacement elastic.

    Dealing with poopy cloth diapers is no fun. None at all!

    Well, my biggest frustration is the water softener to keep everything rust free, also seems to cause the stinkies in the diapers. blah.

  8. rachel.ronan says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is the second diaper fill. It seems that when my little one has a dirty diaper she always seems to keep a little bit in reserve. As soon as she feels the soft dry fabric hit her freshly wiped bottom she relaxes enough to release the “reserves”, and we need a fresh diaper.

    My little girl is almost four weeks old, and she has the same reaction that her older brothers, now 10 and 7, used to have. I should ask them if the same reaction happens in the bathroom…

  9. nurse_shells says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is that I only own 3 cloth diapers right now. I would love to do cloth diapering full time, but just can’t decide which brand I should go with! It’s such a big investment!

    We will begin cloth diapering in Feb with the birth of our new little guy! I can tell you I have MANY frustrations with disposable diapering, so we are ready to give cloth a try! One main frustration is the expense! I am ready to save some money with our cloth diapering switch!

    Biggest Diaper frustration ? I LOVE LOVE Gdiapers! Make going “green” an easy choice…I guess the biggest frustration is when the disposable liners that i use to help reduce the amount of poo cleaning I have to do get twisted inside the diaper and I have to deep clean my homemade cloth liners anyway…that’s kind of a drag. : )

  20. jillerbeth says:

    My biggest frustration is when a perfectly coordinating diaper and outfit ensemble are ruined when the diaper gets dirty and I do not have another matching diaper available to complete the adorable look. We so love our g’s-for the environment, for our babies and they are adorable!

    Everybody’s opinion about how crazy I am to want to cloth diaper my son.

  29. bekah062205 says:

    I have never tried cloth diapers before. But my frustration with disposables are the price, the cheap material, pulling off the tabs when trying to put the diaper on. The smell in my trash can. YUCK. Im pregnant with Twins and i have decided that Cloth is the way to go. Much cheaper, no smell in the trash cans, no ripping of fabric and overall sense of being greener.

  33. Anonymous says:

    My biggest cloth diaper frusteration is my husband.:) He really tries so hard, but despite his good efforts he just can’t remember to put the g on the back, or change her every 2 hours, velcro straight across etc, so she gets leaks if he changes her.:) I don’t get on him about it too much though, because I know that he tries so hard because he knows its so important to me.
    To give him some credit though, he has gotten a little bit better at it.:)

    My biggest frustration has got to be that 1- no one locally has cloth diapers in a store, 2- they are such a big upfront investment, and 3- trying to go out and about in town while cding when you only have a limited number of diapers and NO wetbag

  37. lacey1715 says:

    The comments I get from others about cloth diapering….and that I have to order all of our diapering needs online.

    My biggest diaper frustration is not having enough gdiapers!! I LOVE THIS BRAND But it’s a big investment and my husband is in grad school and I’m a SAHM of 2. So I try to do the best with one starter kit per child. I just wish I had more so my whole supply would last longer then 2 days.

  39. julie288 says:

    My biggest frustration is LAUNDRY! Now that the cold weather months are here, it takes longer to hang dry the cloth inserts. Still love our G diapers though!

  40. brandy perkins says:

    My biggest cloth diaper frustration is my husband’s constant need to take the “easy” way out—he is quite sneaky and will put a disposable diaper on her & use disposable wipes! Grrrr! 🙂

  41. jasminerw says:

    My biggest frustration is the cost of diapers on my wallet and our environment. I like cloth, but I don’t like the idea of all the washing and water waste. That’s why I like gdiapers. I’m expecting my little boy in March 2011 so this starter kit will really be helpful!

  43. kjandks03 says:

    I hate sticky poo on cloth diapers! Having to use hot water in the shower to spray it off….stinky stinky! I am can’t bring myself to buy a sprayer. But I Love the Gdiapers. Best investment I made with this child.

    My biggest frustrations right now are picking the right diapers that will be best for our family, and trying to convince other family members that I do NOT want disposable diapers on my child at all.

    My biggest diaper frustration is the diaper rash that instantly appears on my son’s bum as soon as I put a disposable on him. But with gDiapers, clothes or disposable inserts, we have had no problems!!

  48. emmy says:

    My biggest frustration is the stains I cannot get out of my cloth diapers!

  49. alisvolatpropiis says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is using disposables. We wanted to cloth diaper our first so bought a couple, but after fighting to get them to absorb for the first time (thank you hard water), my husband was frustrated and said no to buying more. I don’t blame him. By the time we got them to absorb, my son was only able to wear them for a couple weeks. I hate sposies! They are a waste, expensive, they smell (thank you basset like pregnancy nose), and just plain drive me nuts!

    We want to cloth diaper our soon to be born little girl, and are trying to find means to buy cloth! It’s the upfront thing that gets in the way. I put some on my registry (gDiapers,Flips, and Smartipants) hoping that we get some!!! We are fed up with disposables!!!

  50. kittiesmom says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is not being able to actually see the diapers before I buy, I live in the middle of nowhere . I’ve bought a lot of diapers that I wouldn’t have purchased had I known what they felt like. On the off chance I go out of state for something I try to see if there’s a diaper shop en route for hopes of finding a diaper that will work and won’t irritate my daughter’s skin.

  51. rnbcaswell says:

    my biggest frustration is the cost! Cloth diapering is supposed to be more affordable, but all of the good cloth diapers are just so expensive.

  55. echomyst says:

    Biggest cloth diapering frustration = high water bills (it’s insane how much they charge for water and sewage where we live… we only wash diapers twice a week *with our regular laundry* and our bill’s gone up quite a bit).

  56. aupaysdesmerveilles says:

    I’d love to be THE French winner … 😉
    As we are not able to buy gDiapers here, in France.

  57. isaackirstiereeves says:

    Our biggest diaper frusteration is money. We want to go green, but starting off with a system other than regular cloth diapers is so expensive. I was a college student before we got pregnant and my husband has been on the apprenticeship waiting list for 2 years now. With the whole family depending on his income alone as a laborer, we can afford inserts, but not the actual diapers themselves. We’ve boughten a couple packages of cloth foldable diaper (to go green and to save money by not buying disposables) but our ideal diaper is something like the gDiaper system because then not only do we not have to teach everyone how to fold a diaper, but it would be a lot easier to go places and not have to worry about lugging around dirty diapers everywhere.

  61. auddy says:

    Having to change diapers. lol

  62. imamommafirst says:

    I am on the fence about cloth diapering. I didn’t with my first because back then it just grossed me out to be honest. Now I have a 15 month old and I’m really considering giving it a try and out of all the different ways to cloth diaper, I think that gdiapers have really tried to eliminate the “eeww” factor and I love that! My biggest frustration I think will be lack of support from my family and friends.

  63. mmolivas says:

    No frustrations yet 😉 Baby is not due for another 3 weeks. If anything what frustrates me now is the negative feedback I receive when I tell people I am using cloth diapers. They seem to think it will only last two weeks and I will give in to pampers!

  64. ckv11 says:

    My largest frustration is that getting gdiapers in stores is not easy—even in stores that supposedly carry them–they are always out of stock!

    We do not have any gDiapers as of yet, but we really would love to try them because the amount of diapers ending up in the landfills is a huge concern of mine.

  69. jademom says:

    For me, the biggest frustration is that cloth diaper systems aren’t readily available in my community, and when they are, the price is HIGHLY inflated compared to online. (The other thing that would be nice is that if each system came with a personal assistant to clean them…wishful thinking)

    My biggest frustration is getting my mother-in-law to use my gDiapers when watching my little one. It would save me a lot of money and the stress of worrying about having enough on hand for her.

  75. amyprry says:

    My biggest frustration so far is that my husband isn’t alway on board with the cloth diapering. Though and now we moved to a small apartment and don’t have a washer and dryer any more. I really want to do more for the environment so I’m thinking using the gdiapers with flushable inserts would be a good start.

  76. mommato3boys says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is that I only have 6 diapers (g-diapers — I LOVE them) and I have twins, so no where near enough diapers meaning they have to be washed every night.

  77. laynajean says:

    My biggest diaper frustration was trying to fit a fluffy bum into mainstream clothing. Now, thanks to Gdiapers that is no longer an issue. Now the frustration is hiding the non gdiapers well enough that Daddy can’t find them.

    Truth us my biggest frustration is that I decided to go with G-Diapers months ago but am currently underemployed and haven’t got the resources together for this starter kit yet!! First born is due on Christmas Day.

    My biggest frustration is not having enough to keep the diaper bag fully stocked at all times!

  83. amr says:

    My biggest frustration is overnight, sometimes he just leaks through no matter what we try. I’ve had friends tell me that their LOs in disposables do this too though so I guess it just comes with the age (he’s 20mos).

  84. brookelynthomas says:

    Can’t buy gDiapers at target (in the store).

  85. mamag6 says:

    My biggest complaint is that no one else will use cloth diapers with my son! Im a stay at home mom to a deployed soldier and we are stationed half way across the country from our family, so I have to rely on hourly part time daycare to watch my kids when I have doctors appointments. I have searched all the centers in our area and no one will use cloth diapers. Im a faithful gDiaper user and they wont even use the disposable grefill so I still have to buy horrible disposable diapers. To me, THAT is the most frusterating pat of cloth diapering!

  86. alichaptx says:

    My biggest frustration is finding a reasonably priced way to be environmentally conscious. So many environmentally sound products are prohibitively expensive. gDiapers however seem like a good compromise! And I love that they have a cloth and disposable option!!

  87. miakbanks says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is definately leaky diapers. Having to do an outfit chamge along with a diaper change is frustrating.

    My biggest frustration is that I have to either drive an hour to the closest BRU to buy gDiapers stuff, or order everything online! I wish cloth diapering the modern way was more mainstream – all I can ever find locally is crappy Gerber prefolds and the poofy Gerber waterproof pants. :o(

    My biggest frustration with my first has been that she doesn’t/can’t wear her little G’s to daycare (3 days per week). I’m hoping to convince the teachers to learn how to use them so #2 (due in Feb) can wear them when she starts daycare.

  102. lizzyandabbe says:

    i guess the biggest problem i have would be laundry, more or less making sure i can get to doing a load of diapers in time.

  103. momma2maddox says:

    My biggest frustration is that I didn’t cloth diaper from the beginning and can’t afford to start now 🙁

  104. sleberling says:

    My biggest frustration with diapers was with disposables and the blow outs with newborn poop! Although I am looking forward to the change in that from what I hear blow outs will not be the norm anymore with gdiapers! We started using them on our 16 month old when he was 13 months and I am due with #3 in January!

  105. lizzyandabbe says:

    i would say it’s laundry, more or less the drying time and making sure i don’t wait to the last minute to wash them.

  106. kbrogan says:

    My biggest dipe frustration is that my son pulls the tabs open in the front! Why can’t they ALL be made like g’s and have the fasteners in the back??? 🙂

  107. jerrigrim says:

    I actually use GDiapers on my little one and love them! But I just can’t bring myself to use them when I leave the house. Who wants to carry dirty diapers around all day?! So I use disposables when we are out and about, but they are horrible! I have tried all the top brands and his poop ends up all over no matter what brand it is. I guess i should just get over my issues and use the GDiapers while I am out since I know they work!

  108. kimw17 says:

    Biggest frustration is leaks – I’ve got a heavy wetter at only 2months old!!!

    not having enough gdiapers for our little one 🙁 im a stay at home mom and im constantly washing diapers and inserts lol! this would really help me and I also want to give a pair to my best friend who just had her baby boy!

  111. mythuselah says:

    My Biggest frustration why I chose G-diaper is the mess and chore of other diaper systems. With snap in liners and choice of various cloth or “disposable” flushable liners I have great leak protection for any situation with out the bulk, stink and mess compared to other diaper systems.

  112. yprulsss says:

    Our biggest diaper frustrations are money and convenience!! With 2 little ones in diapers, ages 2months and 17months we spend a lot of money in diapers. I love that I can have an enviromentally friendly option shipped right to my door in the sizes that I need without having to run out. I never run out of diapers now and I never have to worry about my local store being out of the sizes that I need! We love our gdiapers! They are easy to change and I’ve had far less leaks than i did with disposables!

  113. triana_t says:

    My biggest diaper frustration was never knowing what it was that was causing my son’s diaper rash! It was horrific to the point of us just letting him roam free. When we switched to cloth, his life changed! I credit cloth with my son keeping his happy disposition and our easy potty training!

  114. Anonymous says:

    My biggest frustration is getting a stains on my cute dipes that I can’t get out even with sunning!! Other than that I wish the prices were a bit lower. Still more affordable than sposies!!!

  115. momof3boys says:

    Biggest frustration is the diaper pail, I HATE IT! Other then that me and cloth diapering get along great. I have to admit I have to use sposies at night time because I have yet to find a cloth diaper that will not leak.

  116. eschillo says:

    Biggest diaper frustration has got to be nightime! my daughter always soaks through her diapers, cloth or disposables, doesn’t matter.

  117. a.white.gallego says:

    I think my biggest frustration is that my husband is not on board with the CD thing! I don’t mind cleaning or changing the diapers at all, but when it’s his turn, he refuses to even try to use cloth. We have disposable backups just in case, and he always goes for those! Luckily, that’s not very often, though, since I stay home with our son (which means I get the majority of diaper changes).

  118. btilk says:

    My biggest frustration is that a lot of cloth diapers don’t fit my baby well, she has large thighs and a tiny waist.

  121. shadley7309 says:

    My biggest frustration with disposables are the blow outs my son seems to cause in which poop just goes all over him and sometimes me! We use cloth most of the time and my only frustration with them is the negativity we get from people who are non-supportive of cloth diapers.

  126. nienna7477 says:

    My son has such thin legs that it’s VERY hard to find a diaper that fits him well. We have constant leak issues to the point everyone just tells me to go to disposables but I don’t want to! Cloth is the way I want to go but I just wish I could find one that would work for my son!!

  127. ksjohnston says:

    My biggest frustration is getting my husband comfortable using the cloth diapers… he still puts a disposable on her when he changes her. I know the simple answer to not have any disposables in the house, but until I can afford to get more gCloth I would have to laundry everyday.

  128. jwoodbabies says:

    Honestly, we use cloth diapers so we don’t have any frustrations. No diaper rash, no blow outs, no late-night runs to the store, no outgrowing a size mid-box. Our twin boys just turned 1 and we’ve used cloth since they were two weeks old. It’s almost pleasant to deal with diapers.

  129. lisa.suit says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is thinking my daughter is just wet (when she’s not), and deciding the change her standing up. Uh-oh!

  131. lindsayp22 says:

    My biggest frustration at this time is finding a diaper that can hold up to the amount of urine that my son puts out overnight. And recent repelling issues. I would love to try gdiapers and see if their inserts can hold up to my son! 😉

  132. mlins6 says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is not having a large enough diaper bail or a diaper pail that combines a place to put disposables (wipe and g inserts) and another section for the cloth g inserts, liners, and pants. Should I return to work, then my biggest frustration will be finding a childcare providing that is open to using gdiapers instead of traditional disposables.

    I’m expecting my first child any day now, so I haven’t dealt with diaper mishaps, but I am dreading the infamous “diaper blowouts” that I hear so many of my girlfriends & family members talk about, lol! I’m planning on being a gMom and am hoping that the gCloth paired with a gRefill will contain these “blowouts” at night 😉

  134. txstraubs says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is I don’t have enough gdiapers! 🙂

  135. praeluceo says:

    Our first child is due to be born in February, so I don’t have any diaper frustrations yet except that we want to use cloth diapers, and they’re just so expensive! Although gDiapers look nice, we’re thinking about going with Gro-Via because they’re adjustable, and snaps are better than Velcro for long-term use.

  136. ginie06 says:

    My biggest frustration is not to find gdiapers stores in France, to have a large selection of colors available, to order order as many as I want and in the colors I want.
    FInd gdiapers everywhere in France in all colors…

  137. kellilyn1 says:

    My biggest frustration is having so many people tell me that cloth diapering is a pain in the butt. well, I love it and its the only way my daughter doesn’t have diaper rash.

  138. inkintheveins says:

    Using gDiapers on my second child, so my biggest diaper frustration is trying to keep my 10 month old still while changing her. She has a really great spin-kick move that I can’t seem to compete with.

    My biggest frustration right now is people’s comments about our decision to cloth diaper! I am sick of people telling me that we are crazy for doing it and how hard it is and that we will be back to disposables in no time…keep your comments to yourselves people!

    My biggest frustration has always been leaky diapers! I always have leaks it seems, I really need a diaper that can hold up for more than 45 minutes or so! I feel like I spend 3/4 of my day standing at the changing table and the other 1/4 washing dipes and soiled clothes! I need help!!!

  153. shannonpdx says:

    My biggest frustrations are poopy diapers – I’m preggers with #2, and super nauseous, so changing a stinky diaper is hard, hard, hard! Yucky!

  154. bekatelyn says:

    I don’t have any diaper frustrations right now! I guess one could be when my baby poops and I didn’t put a liner in the diaper!

  155. lbmama says:

    I have to agree that the biggest frustration is dealing with people’s misinformed opinions on cloth diapering. Thankfully being armed with great products like gDiapers helps me set them straight, I already have one friend using them and have gotten the interest of another who had been put off by a playgroup friend who used prefolds and pins! Being able to show them how easy it is really makes a difference, the only problem is they always want to keep mine!

  156. cromey says:

    My biggest frustration is probably the snap in tabs. Some of mine have frayed a bit. Nevertheless, I LOVE gDiapers….Love them!

    I liked you on FB and signed up for your newsletter! I honestly can say that I don’e have any frustrations with CDing! I love changing my LO and knowing that soft natural is going against her skin, that she never gets rashes, that her bottom is cute, that we’re environmentaly friendly, I even like washing them and putting them away! Now that she’s saving up her EBF poo and only going once a day or two, I have to use the diaper sprayer – I don’t even mind that 🙂

    I cloth diaper and I use G-diapers with the flushable inserts for when we travel. After all, who wants to be doing loads of diaper laundry while on vacation?

    I’ve not gotten a chance yet to really try out a cloth diaper, seeing as my first baby girl is due on Jan 11th 2011. 🙂 So far my biggest issue has been convincing my family members that they will have no problem with the diapers and just to give it a try before they refuse to use them.

    I am very excited to try out gDiapers for our little miracle on the way!

    We’re avid fans of cloth diapers at our house. Love using them. Don’t mind washing them. Hate when the velcro aplix and elastic around the legs start to wear out, though. Even still, these signs of a well-worn cloth diaper remind me of how many disposable diapers we’ve kept out of landfills.

From telling me my house must stink (it doesn’t,) complaining about how hard I must have it to rinse the things (sure, a minor inconvenience, but whatever, I chose it,) to telling me I’m somehow abusing my children by putting them in ‘bulky’ cloth diapers, or because they can ‘feel’ their own wetness in one.

(He was saying how cheep the Pampers were on sale for!)

  205. eugeniehalfhide says:

    My Biggest diaper frustration is Diapers! Which ones to buy? do we buy disposable or use cloth? Do the environmentally Friendly ones work as well as the non evnvironmentally ones? How do they break down? Do I really have to get that diaper Genie thing? Do they leak fluid? Do they leak Poop? Organic/ Non organic? Or You have Cloth…..I remember the cloth diapers from the 80’s with Diaper pins and plastic pants and your traditional trifold.( I also remember flushing them down the tiolet ) Now you have lots of options….All in ones, Pockets, diaper service, really cool cover pants, Hemp, organic, Microfiber….The list is endless. Or do you do a combination of disposable and cloth. That I would say is the biggest frustration ever is the diapers Themselves. With everything outthere its diaper overload!

  206. kendraj says:

    the fact that my daughter twists and turns like a ballerina, half of the time ending up upside down held by one ankle, when I try to change her. Makes for rough diaper changes! I have to make sure I have a gPant loaded and ready to go, because she certainly won’t wait for me to put one together!

    My biggest gripe about diapers are the sizes. Just because my baby has grown doesn’t mean she goes less or I change her less, but there are less diapers in a package so I’m buying more often and wasting more money. That’s one reason I’m switching over.

    Having to use the same laundry detergent on all our clothes and having to wean myself off of fabric softener. I was/am seriously addicted to fabric softener. Also, finding gCloth inserts has been difficult – and I live in the same city that gDiapers is based out of (Portland, OR)! I actually had to buy mine from a store in Vermont when I was visiting there last month. Now I need more but can’t find any locally.

  214. bonniehyde says:

  215. riddlbc0825 says:

    My biggest frustration with diapers is finding ones that are best for me and my babies as well as easy on the pockets. I’ve become interested in cloth diapers recently and am experimenting with a few kinds. I have 5 month old twins and diapering can be a challenge at times. I know in short time I’ll be making the switch from disposable diapers to cloth diapers. It makes me feel good that I’m doing something about my carbon footprint and adding a little extra cash in my pocket.

    My biggest diaper frustration is thinking about all of the disposable diapers sitting in a landfill for 500 years. Using cloth/hybrid diapers is so eco-friendly and better for our environment. It may be one or two extra steps more in your daily mothering duties, but nothing is a better feeling than knowing you use whats best for your child and help do your part to save our environment.

    First, I can’t believe I missed seeing this on the website directly, Thank you google reader for showing this to me!

    With our son being almost a month old, I’ve gotten frustrated with the gallons of trash generated. A co-worker used gDiapers for several weeks but gave up when he couldn’t find the disposable refills that were cost effective for him. I don’t care about receiving any disposable inserts to the gDiaper’s system. I’ve waited for my son to get large enough to skip the “tiny g” phase and jump right into the 8lb size.

    I was about to hit order when I saw this… we still have 50+ disposable newborns to use up (thank you friends!!)

    After cloth diapering my two-year-old since he was a newborn, I’m happy to say that I’ve had very few frustrations with cloth diapering! My only real frustration has been having to strip our stash every so often to get rid of stink, but even that’ snot as big of a deal as I had originally feared!

  267. mdomingo says:

    my diaper frustration was knowing that I used regular diapers on my children and now I know the harmful chemicals that they put in those but know I found a different avenue to better diaper the next one. so I guess the frustration lead to a victory! chemical free on the next little bottom!

  268. care bear says:

    leaks! those are super frustrating especially at night!

  269. elise z. says:

    I hate the fact that I cannot use a diaper cream with my son’s cloth diapers. I already did the mistake and ruined a good number of clothes. No matter what I try, he needs his bum covered with a thin layer of diaper cream so he doesn’t get a rash. He’s got REALLY sensitive skin. I don’t want to use a liner on every single diaper I put on my child’s bottom, it kills the purpose of cloth diapering!!

  270. Brettney says:

    My biggest frustration is leaks! Cloth diapers do better then conventional disposables but then there’s the expense and hastle of washing them since I don’t have a washer and drier in my apartment.

  271. i can’t really say that i have many diaper frustrations. i’ve been using cloth with my son for a long time, and it’s been lifesaving. i couldn’t imagine having gone with disposable, that would’ve yielded plenty of frustrations.

  272. sherpa17 says:

    Leakage and poopy blowouts! Poopy blowouts out of the top of the diapers (up the back or tummy) are always the worst. It takes some skillful maneuvering to get clothing off while keeping baby’s face and head clean. I also find with our cloth diapers the soakers need to be changed VERY often or else they leak through.

  273. alyshak3902 says:

    My biggest thing about cloth diaper is not finding one that my son doesn’t pee out of, every nite. Having to use a disposable, though I do make it friendlier by going compostable. That and putting the diapers on to soak at night after he goes to bed, and then forgetting to turn them on, and not having a clean one in the morning.

  274. mariannethai says:

    My biggest frustration is night time leakage.

  275. daynawolfe says:

    The smell a dirty diaper leaves in the house.

  276. racheldianejacobs says:

    availability…live in a rural area so would love to see cloth diapers in major retailers…only way i can get them is online so for many years i had to use what i could get a hold of aka disposables 🙁

  277. tivanic says:

    I use gdiapers and my biggest frustration is the plastic liner elastic that cracks and then stains with poo. Yuck.

  278. scwells03 says:

    my biggest frustration is just trying to change a diaper on a VERY wiggly baby!!!

  279. uschicana says:

    Right now my biggest frustration is leaks. I CD and my son is becoming a heavy wetter so looks like I need to start doubling up.

  280. jjonestj says:

    My biggest frustration is not being able to get them clean enough!

  281. tiffanyalix says:

    My biggest frustration is finding an eco-friendly disposable for nighttime and emergencies or traveling . . . gdiapers are the best!

  282. sarahasholes says:

    My biggest frustration with diapers is trying to find the best cloth diaper for my baby.

  283. helenlam says:

    My biggest frustration is when the baby goes right after you change him! And he is super-wriggly right now!

  284. jamortega says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is the amount of time it takes for diapers to dry when hang drying them now that the cold, wet weather has arrived.

  285. suesur says:

    My biggest frustration with diapers is the cost and waste (filling up the landfills).

  286. jdmitch says:

    nice… always wanted to try these with our kids…

  287. jdmitch says:

    ps – our biggest frustration with disposables were our kids sensiitive skin…

  288. twinnicuparent says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is getting diapers that fit each of my twins correctly.

  289. mlkokopelli says:

    My biggest frustration is learning how to choose the right diaper. There are so many options it’s daunting trying to figure it all out!

  290. JuliaJanzen says:

    Leakage, Leakage, and Leakage. My top three problems with diapers. 🙁 I haven’t tried these but I hope I win so can. 🙂

  291. monkaroo says:

    My biggest frustration is having to wash the entire diaper when my son pees even just a little bit. It would be awesome to get rid of the wetness and pop a new dry layer into the outer diaper.

  292. allisong says:

    I think my biggest frustration will be keeping up on the laundry.

  293. bumblebee says:

    My biggest frustration is how expencive they are and that we throw our money in the garbage with disposables!

  294. bookchambers says:

    I’m not personally frustrated yet but as a spectator the debate about cloth or disposable is frustrating. And even the arguments against cloth that it wastes water is struggle to argue, especially living in a water conservative area. That’s why g diapers rocks. It kind of battles both these arguments. I hope I win some to try out when my little one arrives.

  295. rbccathegreen says:

    My biggest complaint about diapers is that they are one of the largest amounts of waist in landfills. It’s hard to believe that something so small can make so much waist. I don’t even know the start of it yet though I’m only 5 months pregnant. G Diapers are the only diaper i have really researched. i have added multiple sizes and color to my gift registries I only hope thats enough!

  296. jcdaab says:

    The cost and waste of disposables.

  297. juliettee says:

    leaks, costs, environmental impact- so frustrating!!!

  298. Anonymous says:

    my biggest diaper frustration is carrying them around! they’re so bulky.

  299. anihow says:

    i hate carrying them around!!

  300. kovare81 says:

    The environmental impact of disposable diapers!

  301. spicysushi says:

    Cloth diaper covers that leak — a good leg gusset goes a long way!

  302. butterfly8i8 says:

    finding an easy eco friendly option… and also blowouts

  303. margareit says:

    I do not have any frustartion yet, because my due date is 5th January, but we will defenitely give a try to cloth diapers to help potty training our baby!

  304. chicane says:

    Traveling. We travel a lot and I always succumb to disposables when traveling because our cloth ones are too bulky to pack.

    Finding the right diaper was the most frustrating thing at first. We relied on prefolds and covers for a while till we had a chance to try out other styles and brands to find our favorites. The search is still on BTW.

  306. mooeta says:

    my biggest frustration was all the misinformation and the mistrust of people about cloth.

  307. Brandy says:

    My biggest frustration is that I purchased so many different types of diapers that it can make diapering a hassle.

  308. beatleboymatt says:

    The hardest thing with cloth diapers is keeping up. It seems like there are hardly ever as many clean as you need. The more the better…

    Loves us some gdiapers!!!

  309. fusspot says:

    My biggest frustration with diapers and every thing else related to having a new baby in general is the huge expansion of my familial carbon footprint. I’ve tried to get as many things used or recycled as possible. Diapers are a thing you wouldn’t buy used (yikes). G-Diapers are a lot easier on the planet than the other off the shelf alternatives. 🙂

  310. btilk says:

    Leaky diapers are my biggest frustration! We go through all the trouble to change a little one who doesn’t like to be changed and then the diaper leaks right after she’s been cleaned up!

  311. patty says:

    The biggest frustration is the high price on the retails for cloth diapers although it is eco-friendly and can be pass on for the next child. Also, it is not easy to look for simple but stylish cloth diapers that the baby can wear without pants or skirt. I don’t like plastic feels-fabric, I prefer quality fabrics which are soft and simple.

  312. twiggy says:

    The biggest frustration is the price of getting started. I know it will pay off in the long run, but I spent a lot of $$ on diapers this month!

  313. twiggy says:

  314. megs1328 says:

    With one on the way, choosing what diaper to go with is my biggest frustration!

  315. mtnwoman says:

    My biggest frustration is BLOWOUTS! It has been hard to find a diaper that holds the stuff in and doesn’t let it blast up their backside. I really wanted to get gDiapers from the start, but the hubby was hesitant about them and wanted to stick to the convenience of disposable.

  316. mtnwoman says:

    My biggest frustration if BLOWOUTS! Being out and about then getting them out of their car seat to find their back covered in ickyness is not cool!

  317. jljmommy says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is night time leaks, which I recently fixed by using a wool cover over whatever diaper I put him in at night! It is a new thing so only time will tell if this frustration is gone.

  318. hkruegs says:

    I haven’t started cloth diapering yet, so I don’t have any diaper frustrations yet. I imagine it will be the never ending cycle of laundry…it will be worth it through!

  319. kristafeyma says:

    I have the fuzzibunz diapers, and i love them! I love that i’m not paying a ton for something that is going to add to our landfills and potentially cause diaper rash on my little angel’s tooshy 🙂 However I get frustrated when he’s between snap sizes. When he has a growth spurt it seems the snap we’ve been using is all of a sudden too tight, but if i go to the next snap it leaks. 🙁

  320. redheadkimie says:

    My biggest diaper frustration is when my son leaks at night 🙁 Its horrible for him and it sucks to have to strip his bed everyday.

  321. karissasoetens says:

    Hi my biggest diaper frustration is leaks!! Only a few with cloth diapers thankfully!!!

    I don’t have a frustration yet, not due until May!

    Don’t have a frustration yet.

  325. syxiemomma says:

    My biggest diapering frustration is how my little loves to poo as soon as I place her in a clean diaper.

  326. Depierolp says:

    My biggest diaper frustration has been all the money I’ve spent on disposables! I recently switched to cloth and I feel so much better about the environment and my budget.

  327. nightymel says:

    the cloth diaper brand I am using has a very hard velcro band on the belly and it irritates my baby’s skin sometimes, I hate it!!

  328. anavailati says:

    How much damage the regular diapers cause on our environment.

  329. brekkenholtrop says:

    My biggest frustration is the diaper-rash-causing HEAT. As we were unable to make the investment in our son’s next gDiaper size, disposables it is. Now, those disposables get HOTTER THAN HOT as it is, this is Texas, and at 108 degrees today, he doesn’t need that diaper to be any hotter! But we are dealing with diaper/heat rash about twice a week! Help solve my biggest frustration, Inhabitots!

  330. angelverse says:

    Cost. We’ve been a student family all our marriage, with my husband in Chiropractic College. I’ve never been able to invest in a decent stock of cloth diapers. Now, waiting on baby #4 I’d really like to do it right this time! I can’t bear the thought of wrapping my little one in commercial chemical diapers 24-hours a day : (

  331. td82409 says:

    I hate the diaper rash my little guy gets because of the material of the diapers 🙁 And the cost of the disposables!

  332. k.1203 says:

    None yet, but trying to get my family on board with my decision to cloth diaper is probably going to be my biggest frustration.

  333. cyclegoddess says:

    Currently I don’t have a diaper frustration other then when my friends and family leave their disposables in my trash can and make my whole house smell bad. I have taught them the ways of the new awesome cloth diapers but they have yet to even try them out or like them.

  334. Eowyn says:

    My biggest frustration was finding out that the reason I was missing gdiaper cloth inserts was because the nursery workers had been throwing away the poopy ones. And they wouldn’t replace them! Who throws away other’s things? They are clueless how long it took me to save up for those.E

  335. leah_jones says:

    Deciding which ones to buy

  336. JulieClaire says:

    I hate spending so much on disposable diapers and i hate how bad my baby gets diaper rash, also disposable diapers are so ugly and the cant be comfortable to wear. I have 4 kids all together and 2 are in diapers. so thats a lot of money that adds up and with my husband just getting out of the military we have to save money anyway we can. Im looking at Gdiapers bc i want a better option than nasty disposables and i heard they are the best.
