2 Bumps

Eco-friendly diapers

I am a 3rd time mommy. We have sworn by huggies with our first 2, but I am really wanting some eco friendly diapers with this LO. I have been doing some research and I am lost at what ones are the best. I know my best bet will be to buy some of each and try them, and that is what I will probably do, but for now I would like some opinions. TIA!!

  • Don't know about Eco friendly diapers but I used to only buy Pampers until I tried Shop Rite brand & I am hooked. They are much less money, they're softer & have wider soft tabs. NEVER have any leaks because they are cut fuller too. Huggies are the WORST!!!

  • I loved my cloth diapers. The gDiapers (re-usable outside, disposable or cloth insert) were great, too, because you re-used the "shell" but could flush, toss, or compost the disposable inserts, or stuff them with prefold diapers, etc. I liked Seventh Generation for regular disposables. We went with mostly cloth (Bum Genius pocket diapers, and 2 or 3 dozen prefolds with 4 covers, plus 2 gDiaper shells) for several reason: DD could only use two brands of disposables (Seventh Generation and I think White Cloud, which wasn't sold in our area while she was in diapers) because of sensitive skin and allergic reactions, cloth was more budget friendly, it was more eco-friendly, and they make some really cute cloth diapers. If you're looking into cloth, I highly recommend the cloth diapering groups here on CM. They're full of great information, reviews, tips, etc.
