Diapers, diapers everywhere, but which one to choose?!
Over the last 19 months I have tried several natural diapers on #CharlieB. Honestly, there are a ton on the market, but three brands in particular are my favorite. I’ll give you the pros, cons and the one eco-friendly diaper that is the driest of them all!
If you’re looking for a no fuss, no muss kind of diaper, then look no further. Aside from being “natural”, Seventh Generation is also no frills! The diapers resemble a paper bag which emphasizes the no dyes/no perfume approach. It’s not like you need a pretty diaper (we all know what happens inside of it), however this one is unusually ugly. But honestly, that didn’t bother me (that much). The diapers did well for #CharlieB until she got a bit older. They are great for tiny babies, but once your little one crosses over to solids, Seventh Generation may not measure up to the heavy doody task. They tout a special absorbent core containing wood pulp, corn and wheat derived materials, but that wasn’t enough for my little potty machine. Rating: 3 out of 5 Sippy Cups
THE HONEST COMPANY
THC may be one of the more popular natural diaper brands and for a good reason. What Seventh Generation lacks, THC picks up. The diaper was consistently leak free for #CharlieB during the day, but wasn’t a reliable overnight option — it was hit or miss depending on how long Charlie slept. However, I do appreciate that they are a reasonably priced, eco-friendly option which is sometimes hard to find. Plus, not only is there easy ordering online, but now many retailers carry the brand as well. PLUS, Honest diapers are super cute! With tons of designs to choose from, it feels like you’re shopping for clothes, not diapers. Rating: 4 out of 5 Sippy Cups
Here we go … the MVP of non-toxic diapers! Just like the ones listed before it, Bambo Nature touts an eco-friendly, natural, super absorbent resume. And like the ones before it, it pretty much delivers. The difference? Not. One. Leak. Ever! Literally, during the two weeks we tested Bambo, #CharlieB stayed leak free. Then there’s this…
Bambo Nature is the only baby diaper in the world to receive the highly-coveted Nordic-Swan Eco-Label. Carrying this label entails one of the lengthiest approval processes in all of Scandinavia (and possibly the world), as their strict standards are raised each year.
Soooo, what does that mean? I don’t know and I really don’t care. Sure, they have lots of credentials and labels, but at the end of the day I just want a diaper that works and thankfully this one does! The only con is that Bambo Nature is a bit harder to find than other diapers. It’s not stocked in every store, but with this wonderful invention called the Internet, you can order BN anytime you want. Oh, and they’re not totes adorable like The Honest Company diapers, but not butt ugly like Seventh Generation. They look like your average diaper. Rating: 4 1/2 out of 5 Sippy Cups.
