Cloth Diaper Friendly Organic Jeans Review and Giveaway

Finding clothes to fit over cloth diapers can be so annoying!

When I first started cloth diapering in 2005, my 15 month old son went from wearing super trim sposies to bulky prefolds and proraps.  His clothes didn’t fit the same.

When #3 came along I had a very hard time finding clothes to fit her!  Paisley was a big baby and toddler.  She has shorter legs and her diapers always seemed way fluffier on her which made for an awkward fit for clothes.  If I bought bigger for the waist and butt they were super long.  Needless to say, she wore a lot of stretchy leggings.

Sterling is long and skinny and cloth diapers usually fit him trim (because they are set on the smallest settings even at almost 2!), therefore, finding clothes to fit him is more a problem with his build than the diapers.

It can be very frustrating to pick out the perfect outfit only to go home and try it on your child and it doesn’t fit.

One mom decided she was going to create a solution to this problem.  The solution was Green Gamboni.  The creator, Anne Loarie, lives in California with her husband and daughter.  Here is a portion of her story…

Years ago, on the beautiful Mendocino Coast of California, some good Italian folks (including members of my family) discovered a wonderful mushroom known to many as porcini (or little pigs). Thinking that the delightful mushrooms looked more like chubby legs than little pigs, they aptly coined them gamboni (big legs). I love the mushroom. I love chubby little legs. And, well, I love to say the word. Gamboni. Gamboni. Gamboni.

And like all mamas, I wanted to do what I thought was best for my brewing babe. I opted for cloth diapers. Less demanding on the environment and softer on the bum, cloth was what I wanted! Months later I discovered that there was a problem with fit. Most pants that I came across simply would not accommodate the bulk of the cloth! Frustrated, I started fantasizing about jeans- CUTE jeans- that would keep my little munchkin’s bum warm and adorable…just like she deserved.

I am now proud to offer to you exactly the jean that I tried, unsuccessfully, to find for her. I hope you like them. I would love feedback and pictures of your adorable little babes exploring the world in their very own pair of Green Gamboni!

I’ve been using Green Gamboni jeans for a few weeks now and, well, it’s actually a funny story…  Every time (seriously) that Sterling wears his Gamboni jeans he renders them unwearable either by pee, poop or an entire meal smashed to it.  I’m not sure why this happens.

But, at least I know that Green Gamboni jeans are toddler proof and can be washed a million times and still look new!

One of the things I love most about Green Gamboni jeans is the stretchiness. With 2% stretch added to the 98% organic cotton your child won’t feel restricted in their normal playtime activity.

Why don’t jeans fit over cloth diapers?

The problem with jeans you buy in the store is the rise.  Most just don’t cover the diaper, leaving half baby’s bottom showing.  Green Gamboni jeans have plenty of rise to cover the cloth diaper and sit comfortably at the waist.

It brings me extreme joy to help spread the word about businesses started by a mom trying to make a difference in the lives of others while trying to support her family.  Anne would like to bless one of my readers with a pair of Green Gamboni jeans!!

    I have looked at these jeans before and I love how they are made in the US, from organic materials, and the green stitching is a nice touch, don’t you think? Makes them stand out right from the start!

  10. Nicole Phillips Says:

    I learned that it’s the rise that makes regular jeans not fit well until I went to her site. I also like that the pocket flaps are sewn down so the pockets don’t get a distorted after laundering. :-)
