This is a review of the first style of G2 so I am told. I have no reviewed the newest version so I cannot speak to the improvements, however I am told via the comments that the rise has been improved.
Ease of Use ✰✰✰✰ Applying the diaper on your baby is very easy, as long as it is prestuffed you just need to close 4 snaps, 2 on each tab, around the baby’s waist. Changing the rise setting requires 3 snaps total, but it is still super easy and you only need to do it every so often. Stuffing the diaper/ unstuffing will be the most tedious, but this diaper is no harder to stuff than most other pocket diapers.
Bang for the Buck ✰✰✰ The average cost of a G2 is about 23.00. This is roughly 5 more than the normal price of a standard pocket diaper. The G2 has features that are unique and desirable: the channeled inside, the soft micro-chamois, prints, and the interior leg gusset. However, I don’t expect this diaper will last every child until potty learning. My son can wear it completely unsnapped, and snapped below it tends to slide down and give him plumber butt no matter how tight I snap it. He is 50% for his height.
Performance ✰✰✰✰ Even though we had issues with fit I never had leaking. I never had to use the booster, the regular microfiber soaker was enough for my son who is not a heavy wetter.
Fit ✰✰✰ If you expect your baby to potty learn at a younger age, or if you make tiny babies, then maybe the rise won’t be a problem for you. The good news is that the diaper should truly fit a newborn because it gets very small. Bad news, it probably won’t last until potty learning. I am not sure why the diaper kept giving my son plumber butt, despite me tightening the snaps it still sagged, but it was fine unsnapped on the butt. Instead, I had a gap in front I couldn’t get rid of.
Overall– There are plenty of things I really enjoyed about this diaper, like the soft lining and channel inside the diaper, the nice inner gussets, and the selection of colors and prints. Plus you can choose from aplix and snaps. However, be aware the fit may not last until potty learning, and you might end up between sizes like my son did.
