Goodmama ONE- New All in One from GM!

Can you feel the ripples of excitement in the cloth diapering world?  Goodmama, the makers of the most sought after fitted diapers, are finally coming out with an All-in-one diaper!  This company is famous for their fitteds in the most adorable prints, colors, and styles.  Their diapers fetch crazy prices on the For Sale or Trade forums, one reaching the 300.00 mark for one diaper.  Yes, you read correctly, 300.00.  Many people on the internet have also lined their own pockets by buying up rare GM’s and selling them for a premium.  Didn’t know there was a cloth diaper black market?  Now you do!

When newcomers to cloth diapering come across this brand, the question always comes up, “Why would you buy a $35.00 diaper and then cover it up?”  There are many ways to answer this.

1.  They don’t cover it up!  Many parents (like myself) tend to go coverless around the house.  Goodmamas are very absorbent and can hold a great deal of pee before feeling wet on the outside.

2.  They feel satisfaction in knowing underneath that cover, wool or PUL, there is an amazingly cute diaper.

3.  They buy Goodmamas because they work so well, the prints (if it has one) are a bonus.

I will admit not understanding the obsession with GMs.  I own one that I bought from Diaperswappers on FSOT.  It is Pollock, a tie dye print.  I needed to understand the hype and see for myself.  I will admit to being overwhelmed by the snaps!  I am still frustrated with the amount of work it takes to put on a Goodmama.  Then, add a cover to it!  The good news:  I have never ever had a leak overnight with one.  They work well!

So, am I going to buy into the hype and try Goodmama ONE?  Absolutely.  There aren’t many diapers I will buy now that my stash is “complete.”  This is a diaper I need to try, just to say I have.  Their claim to fame -prints- will be used on these diapers.  They will be a cotton knit with a hidden waterproof layer.  These types of diapers, ala Piddle Poddles AI2’s, are famous for wicking.  Has Goodmama come up with a solution to fix this?  If so, please sign me up!

Will you be buying ONE?  Do you think the GM obsession is crazy?  Any other thoughts?  Please share by leaving a comment!  I would love to hear what you think!

    I have 3 piddle poddles AI2 that I am trying to sell. They are slightly large on my son still and wick…Maybe once his legs get bigger they wont wick there. But I dont know who would buy them from me since I want to be honest with the buyer and say they wick. I have thought about sewing something around the legs and top to help with the wicking or just putting a cover over it like a fitted. So good luck to Goodmamma, but I have a feeling they will wick also and dont know if I would spend my money on one.

  • Haven’t tried a GM yet, but i want too.

    BUT, I do think it’s INSANE to pay that much for a fitted diaper. I mean, really.

    I won’t be trying one. I am just curious how much testing they have done before selling them. Does anyone know? I would hope for the price they will be selling them for that they will test them first nad make sur they do not leak.
    And FTR, I am not a GM fan, exposed snaps, serge marks left on skin…too many issues for the price.

  • so did you end up buying one? did you like it? will you do a video review of this one?

    Especially explaining the snaps? I just got one (secondhand, $9, had to see what all the hype was about) in the mail and I am confused and overwhelmed by the snaps — and how do I snap it to be the right size (it claims to be one-size, but my daughter is only 3 months and it looks huge)?

    However, this thing is POSH. My daughter’s bum will be in the lap of luxury wearing this thing. My own bum is somewhat jealous.

  • @Erin G. I just bought one today, late I know! But there will be a video review of it in the future!

    The snaps on a fitted are very overwhelming! You should fold the rise down for sizing. There are snaps facing both directions for this reason. I hope that helps!

    I bought a GM one and tried it for 2 weeks-it leaked just like she had a coverless fitted on! I contacted GM customer service who told me to wash it more and really prep it, although I felt I had done this, I tried it for 2 more weeks, no success. I contacted them AGAIN and then told me it must be “defective” and that I could return it and get a fitted instead. Thank goodness. I love, love, love their fitteds and would buy more, but the One? All I needed was to try one and know that was enough for me!

    Did you ever get one?

  • Was the linnk to the $300 diaper correct? It took me to a bunch of photos of your cutie little boy, who isn’t so little anymore. I’m watching all of your reviews and he has grown so much!
