They fit like a disposable,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: gDiapers Little gPant Diaper Covers, Grubby Knees Gray, Medium (Health and Beauty)
I've been using gDiapers with gCloth inserts for about 3 months, my son is now 8 months old. I ordered one diaper from several different companies to see what I liked. It was surprising to find that little gPants don't come with any insert only a liner. So if you only order only one you still can't use it until you get a 6 pack of gCloth inserts or a box of the disposable inserts. To begin with I just used inserts that came with other diapers to see if I liked it.
I like that gDiapers are not as bulky as all-in-one or pocket diapers. They are similar size to a wet disposable diaper. This means his pants fit like he is wearing disposables. They also don't interfere with crawling or other movement like the bigger cloth diapers. My son is 16.5 lbs and in the medium gDiapers. He is crawling and pulling up in the furniture to stand and plop back down on his bottom. No leaks other than a little wetness in the leg a couple of times. Clothes were still dry though. I've had a little problem with the snaps leaving red marks on the front of his hips. If I just make sure they are up as high as possible and fastened loosely this is not a problem. They never fall off even when put on very loosely and not wearing pants.
I also like that you can unsnap the wet/soiled insert and liner and drop it in the pail without ever touching the dirty part. I love that the Velcro on the gPants is the small softer kind that doesn't seem to collect strings in the laundry. Even if I forget to fasten the Velcro before washing the gPants. I wash them about once a week. I have found that the Charlie Banana small inserts fit great in these though they are bulkier and don't have the wick-away fleece side. Thirsties inserts bunch up in the gPants and are best used in pocket diapers.

I don't understand how you gave this product 5 stars when you clearly had some issues with it. For example: 1. "It was surprising to find that little gPants don't come with any insert only a liner. So if you only order only one you still can't use it until you get a 6 pack of gCloth inserts or a box of the disposable inserts."
2. "No leaks other than a little wetness in the leg a couple of times." 3. "I've had a little problem with the snaps leaving red marks on the front of his hips."
Don't you think your amount of stars should reflect the issues you had. I believe you are misleading people who only look at star amounts and not reviews, because the review is very helpful, don't get me wrong, but it is definitely not a five star product and I think you have verified that by stating that there are issues. No offending intended, just curious I guess.

She was pretty clear about not using gCloth in these diapers, she even recommended inserts and pointed out Thirsties do not work so well with gPants. You seem like you don't know you can use other inserts because you said-cannot use pants until you by gCloth and that is not true. You are misleading people by stating this. I think is common sense to try other inserts in g pants.

RE: M. Howard, You know, I totally agree. I should not have given it 5 stars. I had fallen in love with the concept of not having the wash the entire diaper every time one got soiled. It was a new concept (or so I thought) at the time. A few months after my original post I decided that I perfered pocket diapers, despite their bulk, because of the marks from the snaps on his hips and because they could hold more liquid.
Re: Ana988, I perfer the gCloth inserts to other brand inserts I just was upset that they didn't come with any insert.
I hope that helps!
