Eco-friendly disposable diapers? — The Bump

Eco-friendly disposable diapers?

I am still considering the prospect of cloth diapering (I'm only 4.5 months along so have a while to decide!), but I am curious if anyone has any eco-friendly disposable diapers that they would encourage or discourage others from using. I've seen several brands out there like Earth's Best Organic, Seventh Generation, Honest Co., etc., but don't know anyone with any personal experience with any of them. Thanks in advance for your input!

Re: Eco-friendly disposable diapers?

  • I've only tried 2...Seventh Generation and Babyganics. I prefer Seventh Generation and like that I can find them pretty much anywhere. The Babyganics ones were really thick and too "poofy".

  • Mamanatural has a green disposable diaper review. That said, I just ordered a few Gdiapers (with disposable inserts) for our upcoming road trip. We cloth diaper usually. We did have a pack of seventh generation in the newborn stage but hated them--so many leaks and blowouts! http://www.mamanatural.com/green-diaper-showdown/

  • I love Honest diapers!  I cloth diapered my 2nd baby until I gave up because of laundry issues.  I've tried a few other brands and Honest is the best and a pretty good deal for the Diapers and Wipes Bundle.

    I read on some reviews that Honest diapers leak really badly, but those reviews seemed to be in the minority. You haven't had such issues?

    We love Honest Co diapers... no problems with leaking. We mainly cloth diaper but sometimes use disposables when out and about. We initially used Seventh Generation, and they leaked horribly... once we switched to Honest diapers, we've had no issues with leaking!
    That's great to hear! My husband and I are also considering the "cloth diaper, sometimes disposable" thing. 

    Thanks for all your feedback; every little bit helps us in making well-informed decisions. :)

    Interesting! I've never even heard of that brand. I'll add it to our list to consider. Thanks! :)

  • We use cloth at home and earths best at daycare. You should look at earths best; I love them! I used babygearlab.com as the predominant resource in determining which brand to get.

  • We mainly CD but we like Nature Babycare and Earths best. I've been curious about the babyganics.

    We also will use the disposable GDiaper inserts with our Thirsties covers.

    Natycare from Sweden are the absolute best.  No chemical smell, pretty good success rate with no leaks.  Better suited for slightly chubbier bums and legs perhaps, as my neighbour with her kids with slimmer thighs and smaller bum-bums reports that she found they didn't fit well enough for her kids.  So, she went with Earth's Best, and I have used them too.  Sometimes the chemical small with them is too much for me though.  But Earth's Best is pretty good success against leaks, and versatile fit.

    I avoid Honest Co after what they put the Honest Toddler author through!  *Honestly!*

    We CD, but the little boy I take care of during the day is in Honest Diapers.  I've been using them for over a year now and they are great, no leaking issues.
