Back in October, I noticed that most big name manufacturers have discontinued their brown diapers. It seems that brown cloth diapers are going out of fashion, along with those brilliantly contrasty brown/pink and blue/pink combinations. I’ve noticed what seems to be replacing all of that brown: grey cloth diapers.
Grey Cloth Diapers – Everywhere!
Grey cloth diapers are a fabulous neutral that will still coordinate with most things… particularly since grey has become a common accent color in children’s clothing. Sometimes you’ll find them on patterned diapers, too.
Grey Cloth Diapers in Your Pocket
Because of the midway price point and ease, pocket cloth diapers are “the gateway drug” to cloth diapering. There are a few brands of pockets that now have grey cloth diapers in their line up.
The AppleCheeks Steel Me diaper was out for six months as a limited edition, did beautifully well, and is now retired to make room for Riptide to join the AppleCheeks line up. However, the AMP Pebble is still available and bumGenius Armadillo is now being shipped out to customers who pre-ordered from Cotton Babies. (Hopefully that means that they’ll ship it to their retailers next week and it’ll be in my hot little hands two weeks after that.)
Grey Cloth Diapers as an All-in-Two
The newest grey cloth diaper to join the line up is the Best Bottom Dragonfly Ripple. The green is an avocado color… and honestly, I really love this diaper because it reminds me of Oscar the Grouch. The GroVia Cloud was the first grey cloth diaper to start the trend. The Planet Wise Grey Chevron is a nice and perfect grey color combination with the nice yellow pop on the piping.
Have you added a grey cloth diaper to your stash? Which is your favorite?
