Mother’s Day #ClothDiaperHop Sponsor} Glow Bug Cloth Diapers

Glow Bug Cloth Diapers
The story behind Glow Bug


Glow Bug Cloth Diapers story begins with our babies.  Long before the company existed, there were two Moms who found friendship during pre-natal yoga class.  Neta and I became close friends through the course of our pregnancies.  We were thrilled when my daughter Amelia was born only weeks after Neta’s daughter Ela in 2007.  We both discovered and enjoyed using cloth diapers on our girls.

After the birth of Neta’s son Edder and my daughter Gloria in 2010, we were both looking for new cloth diapers.  Neta and I had the same concerns with the available brands.  All we wanted were good quality, affordable cloth diapers but we were really frustrated that the product we were looking for did not seem to exist.   What better solution to our dilemma than to start our own company that would sell amazing quality cloth diapers at a great price?

We knew that there must be lots of other parents out there who want to use cloth diapers but are intimidated by the cost of investing  in good quality diapers.  We are here to help you every step of the way in making the switch to cloth diapers and can’t wait to hear how much you love them!

Happy diapering!
Sarah Downey and Neta Talmor – Founders of Glow Bug Cloth Diaper

P.S. If you are wondering why we called the company Glow Bug Cloth Diapers, there are two reasons.  First of all, “Glow Bug” is my nickname for Gloria and second, because I always thought a baby in cloth diapers looks like a cute little bug with that sweet round bum.

Glow Bug sent me the following for a sponsor feature.


A girl diaper and 2 inserts!

I was completely ecstatic to receive this diappy! I have heard so many good things about this company and I wanted a chance to try them out. Seeing that this was my first cloth diaper, ever, to receive. I was still a little iffy on how to wash and care for, so I emailed Glow Bug and they helped me to get it all sorted out – that day! Talk about awesome customer service :]

Here are my two models

Front View – 2 month old

Back View – 2 month old

I also had trouble trying to figure out how to resize it {I know – beginner}, so I emailed Glow Bug, as soon as I hit send, I figured it}, and sure enough they replied back with not only cloth diapering for dummies’ tips, but also with a video! {will post at bottom!}

On the 2 month old – I really like the fit around the legs, but I was a little worrisome about the gap at top, between the diaper and the stomach, but seeing that I did not see any privates, I thought it would be okay {come to find out this is normal}.

On the 2 month old – I didn’t like the way that the diaper could not go any smaller. She has a smaller booty than most, and it covered up most of her back, but guess that can be a good thing in case of blow outs!

Front View – 8 month old

Back View – 8 month old

On the 8 month old – I really like everything about it, from the form around the legs and around the waist. She seems to feel it out more :] That’s my chunky monkey!

On the 8 month old – The only problem that I did have was the fact that she leaked through it, but that was completely my fault. I should have put in an extra insert, but hey every baby is different!

My Thoughts

Appearance – When I first opened the package and felt the diaper, it was not what I was expecting. it was thin and felt breathable, so much more different than disposables! It actually felt like baby’s bum could breathe {wonder if that is where they get baby’s breath from?}. I also love the fact that it has a double gusset, so that all messes are contained!

Pricing – Even though I received the one cloth diaper, Glow Bug does not sell individual diapers. They actually sell packages of 12 diapers for $150 and it comes with a FREE wetbag! This will save so much money and when broken down it ends up to be about $12.50 for each diaper! Not including shipping {which is about $12} or wetbag! They come in Girl, Boy, or Gender Neutral.

12 Prints included in Glow Bug Girl

  • Waterproof flaps in the front and the back of each diaper to prevent leaks
  • Double gusset through the leg for an extra barrier of protection
  • NEW SlimDry™ fabric keeps baby’s skin dry without the bulk
  • Two openings in the pocket makes it easier to get the absorbent inset in and out
  • Snap-in inserts to keep it in place while baby’s on the move

What I LOVE the most about my Glow Bug

- The prints
- The feel of the diaper
- The price
- All the information that Glow Bug provides you with

What I DISLIKE about my Glow Bug

- Not such a big fan of the microfiber insert due to the thickness and the fact that one does not catch all the mess, and to add another would be way too bulky
