Glow Bug Diaper Review + Enter To Win A Stash Of 24 Diapers!

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers
was founded by two friends Sarah Downey and Neta Talmor who had met in a prenatal yoga class. After trying many brands of cloth diapers on their children, they became frustrated because none of those diapers seemed to reach their expectations. Then the thought occurred to them that they should design a diaper that was not only affordable, but ... Thus, Glow Bug diapers was born!

What I Love About This Diaper :


I love the double gussets! This feature is quite the blessing those who have "quick" and heavy wetters. My children tend to sleep on their sides, so the double gussets help hold in the liquid to allow the inserts to absorb. Not to mention, these gussets are quite effective in holding those dreaded blow-outs.

The Glow Bug diapers also feature envelope pocket closures on each end, with waterproof flaps which are perfect for holding in wetness for the tummy or back sleepers. Using both inserts, this diaper proves to be a nice and trim overnight diaper, with no leaks!

The interior fabric is also quite different from the average suede cloth that most pocket diapers are constructed with. The SlimDry™ fabric, is thin and soft, much like jersey knit material. I hang dry all of my pocket shells and the interior material becomes dry and scratchy. However, the SlimDry™ fabric stays soft.

Each Glow Bug diaper includes 2 snap in inserts which prevent the insert from shifting...perfect for the active child! Of course, only one can be snapped in at a time, but Leettle can get away with wearing only one insert during the day.


Out of all of the diapers that I own, the Glow Bug diapers are the most adjustable. Both the outer PUL material and inner material is quite stretchy, which provides a nice tight fit, without digging into the skin. My Leettle is quite the mover, so after a while his other diapers stretch a little around the legs allowing leakage.

With the 4 rise settings and double crossover snaps, I truly believe that this diaper can fit from birth to potty training. As you can see, Leettle (currently 26 lbs) has plenty of room to grow into this diaper if he needs to.

The Glow Bug Diapers are only available in sets of 6 (solid color) or 12 (prints)for $75 & $150...that's $12.50 per diaper well spent! The point of selling the diapers in packages is to save parents time and money by buying in bulk. Honestly, if I could re-buy my son's stash, Glow Bug Diapers would be the first place that I would shop!
