One Year Anniversary!

I can't believe that we have been in business for one year!  This little idea of teaching people to use cloth diapers that popped into my head last summer, became a reality and has lasted a full year.  

I have met some wonderful parents during my classes and home consultations.  It has been a great experience for me personally and for promoting the use of cloth diapers. 

To thank all of you who have made my business and dream possible, I am offering a 15% off sale for the next two days.  Just use the coupon code = YEAR15 = to save 15% off of your entire order.  Thank you all so much!

GoGreen Champ 3.0 vs 2.0

I would like to introduce all of you to our newest product, the GoGreen Champ 3.0.  This post is going to be a picture comparison of the Champ 2.0 and the new and improved Champ 3.0.  It is not a secret that the GoGreen Champ 2.0 is one of my favorite pocket diapers.  I am happy to report that they have kept my favorite features in the new 3.0 version. 

Below you will find a white GoGreen 2.0 (left) and the new Crasily Paisley print for the 3.0 (right). 

GoGreen has kept one of my favorite features - the rainbow snaps!  These snaps are a very daddy friendly addition in my household.  Notice that the 2.0 seems to be larger than the 3.0.  I'll explain my theory behind that with the help of a future picture.

Sorry for the fuzzy picture for the inside shot.  You can see that the most drastic difference is the look of the gusset (I have another better picture of this!)  You can also notice that the gusset on the 3.0 gives more puckering around the legs compared to the 2.0.  I believe this is why in the previous picture the 3.0 looks deceptively smaller than the 2.0.  I think they are really the same size, just with tighter elastic on the 3.0. 

2.0 Gusset
Here is a close up of the 2.0 gusset.  The gusset is sewn as part of the pocket fabric.

3.0 Gusset
Whereas the gusset of the 3.0 is a completely separate piece of fabric.  There is one piece of fabric that constitutes the pocket of the diaper, and each side has its own separate gusset.  This creates a 'bowl' look to the diaper.  I would imagine that these gussets will catch anything and everything from your baby.

3.0 Gusset
You can see in this picture that the gusset goes almost the entire length of the diaper and is separate from the pocket fabric.

Something else I noticed is that the insert for the 3.0 has an added snap.  They are both the same length, but the 3.0 can snap down to allow parents some ease in stuffing the insert into the diaper when it is set to its smallest snap setting. 

I am really excited about the new gusset on the 3.0.  Now I just need a baby in diapers to try it out!

I do have a few disappointments with the new Champ 3.0 though.  I love the 2.0 fuzzy prints.  It would have been so much fun to have that zebra print in a fuzzy diaper!  But all of the prints on the new 3.0 are smooth, just like the solid colors.  I am also sad to see the price increase.  The Champ 2.0s were a very popular seller for me because they were less expensive than the other major brands.  With the price increase, it is sad to see that they still only come with one microfiber insert, where as similarly priced diapers all come with two inserts. 

But those are just small disappointments.  I think the performance of the Champ 3.0 will prove itself to be a great pocket diaper!

The Champ 3.0 will be released on 8/7/12 - but for now you can take a peek at the listing :)
