Geffen Baby Quick Absorbers and Wipes Review

facebooktwittergoogle_plusmail

Geffen Baby is quickly gaining points in my book as a fantastic company to support.

A lot may have to do with the fact that their marketing guru is Maria from Change-Diapers.com.  She is one of the sweetest people and I love her honesty.

Geffen Baby is a relatively new company based out of L.A. The majority of their products are Made in the USA.  Only the Pakistani prefolds are made overseas.

Dearest Diapers gave me the opportunity to try out the Newborn Quick Absorbers and Cotton Wipes.

A unique quality of Geffen Baby prefolds and absorbers (doublers/inserts) is the 60% hemp, 40% organic cotton jersey content.

Hemp is an amazing absorber and has anti-mildew and anti-microbial properties.  100% hemp becomes crunchy over time but with the added cotton jersey you get softness without compromising the benefits of hemp.

The Newborn Quick Absorbers are 9″ long and can be used as a doubler in any sized diaper.

I was surprised at just how thirsty these doublers are.  I added one to Finley’s nighttime diaper (one we had previously had leaks with) and he woke with dry pants.

The trimness of the Absorbers allows for you to add one or two to a diaper without significantly increasing the bulk.

Doublers are, in my opinion, one of those products you need to have in your stash.  Everyone has those times when you need to add more absorbency but can’t pad your baby’s bum too much more.  Long car trips are a time when I use doublers every time.  There isn’t a guarantee that I will be able to change a diaper every 2 hours.

I was able to try out the Newborn Quick Absorbers but there are 6 other Absorbers for you to choose from.

Rana, owner of Dearest Diapers, has this wonderful chart to help you in your decision:

When making your cloth diaper purchases most parents don’t even think about cloth wipes.  I didn’t.  But, cloth wipes are a natural choice one would make when they are already using cloth diapers.

There are many different kinds of fabrics, sizes and variations that can be used for cloth wipes.  The Geffen Baby Wipes I am reviewing are made from 100% Organic Cotton, are a single layer and are sized at 9″x9″.

Many cloth wipes on the market are a bit smaller and I like the extra length.  Geffen Baby Wipes are very thin, allowing you to fold several in a container.  I was concerned that if they were super thin wouldn’t I get something on my hand??

I am happy to say that even when wiping a very nasty 27 month old bottom I didn’t get my hand soiled.  It does look like the solid is going to “pass through” the single layer but it doesn’t.

Dearest Diapers sells a 10-pack of wipes for $8.99.  90 cents a wipe is fantastic!  I still purchase disposable wipes for occasional use and that is such a waste.

I recommend having a couple dozen cloth wipes at least.  I find that we use them for everything and most end up in the bathrooms for bath time.

Many wonder what to put on the wipes for cleaning.  Water works just fine.  If you want to spice it up add some good smelling 100% essential oils and a drop or 2 or olive oil.  Or you can buy a concentrate wipes solution that smells awesome and is done for you.

I have tons of Scarlet’s Natural Hiney Honey Bites (my favorite! you would NOT be disappointed if you bought this brand!) and I usually end up just using water because I lose my spray bottle!

    I do use cloth wipes and love them. For us, they just work so much better than the conventional, disposable wipe, which tend to leave me with messy hands (yeah, yuck!). I did use a solution that I had to dilute when I first started using cloth wipes, but once I figured out that water worked just as well, I haven’t gone back. Water is so easy!

    We are just starting to use cloth diapers. Our son was a bit small for them in the beginning, so we had to start with disposable – ugh. I hate that we contributed SO MANY diapers to the landfill in the past weeks. Since we’re going to cloth diapers, cloth wipes make total sense. We’re excited to start this and save the earth from gross diapers, save a TON of money over the years for our Son – and second child IF we have another. We plan to pass on our stash once we are done to keep the love going, as other friends have done for us. We’d love to include Geffen in that stash!

    I use sporadically cloth wipes with Happy Heinys bum spray. For those really big messes and when I’m out and about I tend to use disposable wipes. I do regularly use cloth wipes or baby face cloths to pat dry bottoms.

    I’ve used warm water and spray Thirsties Booty Luster or California Baby. Both are fine but the California Baby sprays better.

    I started making my own solution with Dr. Bronner’s Lavender soap, coconut oil, a few drops of Tea Tree oil, and sometimes some chamomile tea. I swoosh this together with some water in a mason jar and pour it over my wipes in an old plastic disposable wipe container. I like this so much better! The oil helps it glide on my baby’s skin. I wash this with my dipes and have had no issues with extra build up.

    I use cheap terry baby washcloths, osocosy flannel wipes, and the Thirsties wipes. Thirsties are too thick. The thinner ones are better. I like the flannel ones the best. They are the softest. They just keep getting softer with age.

    My changing table is in the bathroom so I just wet the wipes in the sink as I need them. I use a mix of cheap Walmart adult washcloths, wipes I made from a baby bath towel that had developed a few holes (I just cut around the holes and zig-zagged the edges) and a couple different types of wipes I won online. My favorite wipes are actually the washcloths. They just work the best.

    I have maybe 15 cloth wipes. I have some of the cheap dollar store “baby washcloths” and 10 Bummas wipes. Unfortunately, I find the Bummas wipes to be pretty rough and scratchy. Most of the time I use just water on my wipes, but I do have some Blissful Booty concentrate that I use in a spray bottle. I’d love to try out the Geffen baby wipes! And, I’d love some hemp boosters because my son is a VERY heavy wetter and I’m constantly fighting leaks!
