Gdiapers take about a week to get used to if you ever used regular diapers before. I started using them as soon as my second son was born. I had a starter kit just waiting for him to be born! At first I used the gdiapers only during the day because I was so used to the disposables I was able to use them with my eyes closed.... I soon switched over to full time use when my guilt started up, "take one more second and you will help the planet!" I can now do a gdiaper change with one hand, eyes closed, and a toddler screaming in my ear!!
The cost is similar to the good disposable diapers and if you are interested CONTACT ME for some MONEY SAVING COUPONS!!!

Eighty percent of the diaperings in this nation are done with disposables. That comes to 18 BILLION diapers a year. Each one has an outer layer of waterproof polypropylene and an inner layer of fluff made from wood pulp plus super-slurper sodium polyacrylate that can hold a hundred times its weight in water.
Those 18 billion diapers add up to 82,000 tons of plastic a year and 1.3 million tons of wood pulp -- 250,000 trees. After a few hours of active service these materials are trucked away, primarily to landfills, where they sit, neatly wrapped packages of excrement, entombed undegraded for several hundred years.
