After cloth diapering for over a year and a half, I finally broke down last month and bought my first Goodmama fitted diaper from Kelly’s Closet. I’d heard so many great things about Goodmama diapers, but just never wanted to spend “that much” money on a diaper. Seriously, my baby is just going to poop in it. I remember thinking that people where crazy for spending $60 – $80 or more on a single diaper if it meant buying a special limited edition print. I also recall hearing of the crazy “sell-out-in-seconds stockings” that would take place just to get one single diaper. As much as I loved my cloth diapers, I just wasn’t willing to go that far, and I know my pocket book wouldn’t have allowed me, even if I had wanted to. Besides, my husband would likely take away my credit cards if I spent that much on a single diaper!
Time has passed and all that craziness seems to have settled back down a bit, so when I saw the Goodmama diapers go on sale last month on Kelly’s Closet I just had to pick one up. When it arrived in the mail I was in love with my new diaper – the Primal Roar Goodmama fitted. I was surprised at how thick the diaper and inserts were, as well as how soft the organic bamboo velour was. I couldn’t wait to wash it and add it into my rotation. However, I purchased the diaper as a Christmas gift for my son Brendan, so it would have to wait a few weeks!
I was so in love with my new diaper that not a week later, I just had to add another one to my stash. Thankfully the Goodmama diapers were still on sale at Kelly’s Closet and I couldn’t pass up such a great deal. I ordered the “Get the Scoop” print figuring it was gender neutral enough for my little man, and it too found its way under the tree just in time for Christmas.
I’ve been using the Goodmama diapers for about two weeks now and absolutely love them. Brendan has been recovering from a round of Rotavirus so diaper changes have been less than fun in the past week if you know what I mean. Yesterday morning I went to change a stinky diaper and I was amazed that everything was contained inside the diaper. I have my doubts that any of our other diapers could have contained such a mess so well, and I rarely, if ever have leaks with any cloth diaper. I immediately rinsed off the diaper with my diaper sprayer and continued to wash my fluff that afternoon. The Goodmama came out looking like new…not a single stain! I was sure that I would have to take a few extra steps to clean up the light colored velour, but a normal wash routine using Rockin’ Green did the trick in just one wash. Simply amazing!
I can’t wait to get my hands on a few more Goodmama diapers as my cloth diaper budget allows. NOW I understand what the fuss is all about… Goodmama diapers rock!
