Green Mountain Diapers Review & Giveaway

Kickin' It Off With Cloth

Day 27 Kickin' It Off With Cloth Event hosted by The Thrifty Nifty Mommy Blogger Network 
is sponsored by Green Mountain Diapers


About the company: Green Mountain Diapers was started in 1998.  The goal was to communicate information about cloth diapering and provide consumers with the best products to do so.  Today they are one of the leading suppliers of natural fiber cloth diapers in the USA.



I was beyond excited to be able to review for Green Mountain Diapers.  If you have been cloth diapering for more than a week, you have more than likely heard about this company.  They are the front runner for a quality cloth diapering company and their workhorse fitted diaper is the superior fitted on the market. 

First, let's talk about the website for Green Mountain Diapers.  Anytime someone asks me about how to get started with cloth diapering this is where I send them.  Their New To Cloth Section and FAQ has all of the information you could imagine for getting started with cloth diapering.  They even have a picture section that shows the best information for diapering a newborn. Under each item they sell they also provide a detailed explanation.  Hands down you won't find a better site with these explanations. 


I was sent a variety of items to try including prefolds, workhorse fitteds with both snaps and without.  A variety of doublers and two types of covers. There was also an instructional manual with everything I could possibly want to know about what I was sent, from how to prep them, how to use them, and even washing instructions. I was sent the yellow edge fitteds because that is the current size of my baby. To know what size you need, see here.


I didn't take a picture of everything, but tried to show a good majority. I love the fitteds, especially the ones with the snaps. I'm just a snap lover.  It's purely my preference.  I also love that she still has plenty of room to grow in these. The one without snaps came with a Snappi or pins to adhere the sides.  I had never tried a fitted before these, but I'm hooked.  I do love my prefolds, and the ones I was sent I do love, but I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed with fitteds.  Because they are already shaped, it's so much easier than trying to figure out how to fold a prefold. Both the fitteds and prefolds from Green Mountain Diapers are 100% cotton.  They are so durable and soft.  Every single time I put one of the fitteds on her she pooped, luckily though, I never once had a blowout. I also loved the doublers that I was sent to go along with these.  Its amazing to just be able to add a small doubler instead of a bulky extra insert.


I was sent a Thirsties cover in size small.  I loved how this fit her and that the velcro actually seems durable.  I have other diapers with velcro that just seem like after a few more washes they are going to stop working, but I have washed this cover a few times with no issues. I also love the leg gussets.


 When I first saw the Bummis Pull-On.  I actually laughed a bit.  This reminded me of how everyone swore when I started to cloth diaper that I would be using "pins and plastic pants".  However, after using these for the first time, I'm actually sort of hooked.  You don't have to worry about snaps or velcro or anything else.  Just pull over the fitted and you're good to go.  While I don't have to worry about it right now, I can see once the baby starts moving a bunch more during changes how convenient this would be. I was sent the small which covers 8-18 pounds and you can clearly see she has room to grow. They are super thin too but durable and even with the obvious room to grow, I never had any issues with leaks.

I can definitely see and understand why people are so in love with Green Mountain Diapers.  The quality of what they provide is top notch & their customer service is just as amazing. You can tell they truly do want cloth diapering to be a positive experience for all of their customers and are willing to go above and beyond for them.  Additionally, I personally love that they never offer coupons or discount codes so you know that you are always getting the same price, great price as everyone else.
