I was compelled to write this post to help other mamas out. The struggle to find a good diaper is real and for those of us who spend hours researching the best options out there, this is a real-life testimony.
From the moment I had my first son, I “swaddled” him in Pampers. I tried a bunch of different brands, including Huggies, Luvs, and Honest Co., but by far my favorite diapers were Pamper’s Swaddlers. I used them for the first eighteen months of Jethro’s life, that is, until they started leaking. I have no proof, but I am convinced that sometime around 2015, Pampers changed their manufacturing process. I would call it their “formula,” but I am not sure that is the appropriate term. All I know is that the diapers I once loved, started failing.
With Jethro close to turning two, and another baby on the way, I set out on a mission to find a diaper that would solve our problems but what I discovered was so much more than that. Initially, the most important factor I cared about was that whatever diapers I chose would last through the night and save me incessant laundry woes. Jethro is four now, and I must admit, I still have him wearing diapers to sleep. This is something a lot of moms I know deal with: their fully potty-trained kids, still pee through a diaper at night. Does that mean they aren’t actually fully-trained? Argh! I am not sure when I will be able to nix the use of a diaper with him, but he is getting awfully big, and at a solid forty-five pounds, I am afraid that he will soon outgrow the largest size available.
But cutting to the chase… which diapers are the only ones I use for my boys? Why, Bambo Nature, of course? Oh, you haven’t heard of them, you say? Well, if that is the case, you are missing out! As parents, we are inundated with commercials and other marketing tactics, proving the industry is saturated with brands eager to gain our attention, and for many families, the companies that are most visible to us can be a great fit. Nevertheless, I am here to tell you that there are other options out there!
Keep reading and I will share the reasons why I settled on Bambo Nature as my trusted brand.
They are By Far the Most Absorbent Diapers
Between 2013 and 2015, I had tried many different diapers, but the quality of Bambo Nature remained unmatched. These diapers are by far the strongest and most absorbent of any other that I tested on my babies. A simple search for absorbancy led me down a rabbit hole that I was afraid I would never find a way out of, but after trial and error, Bambo Nature has earned my loyalty and I haven’t felt the need to look elsewhere.
They are Eco-Friendly and Can Prove It
This is the rabbit hole I was talking about… With two boys that suffer from allergies and one that has moderate to severe Eczema, the manufacturing process quickly became my number one concern. Not only is Bambo Nature a good steward of the environment, their products are 100% safe for children, free of chemicals and additives. (Crazy I have to say “safe for children,” I know, but have you seen the chemicals they put in children’s products these days?!)
Unlike a lot of brands that shall remain nameless, Bambo Nature put their money where their mouth is. They are truly eco-friendly and by saying so, it is not just a marketing ploy; they have certifications backing them up. Certified by The Nordic EcoLabel, Asthma- Allergy Denmark, The Forest Stewardship Council, and ECOCERT, all while sporting the Dermatologically Tested seal, Bambo Nature is a better alternative to most diapers you will find on the market.
They are a Family-Owned Company
Unlike most diaper brands, which are owned by huge corporations, Bambo Nature is family-owned. They care about your family as if it were their own. Cliche? It sounds like it, but it is true. They understand that the safety of the products that we use on our children is paramount; it is simple and they. just. get. it.
If you are looking for a safer alternative to your diapers, want to purchase from a company that many moms like me are falling in love with, and don’t want to sacrifice quality for safety, I highly encourage you to give Bambo Nature a try. I purchase mine by subscribing and saving, so I never have to worry about running out of diapers and it saves our family money because these diapers are by no means the cheapest.
To get you started, here are the products I am currently using and recommending to everyone I know.
Size 5 Diapers
I finallyyyy succeeded at potty-training my youngest, although he still refuses to poop at school and it’s not unusual for him to require a wardrobe change when I drop him off at summer camp, BUT, I’m still calling it a win because he isn’t yet three! Anyhow, these are the diaper sizes we have been using the past year and are still using at night. Brooks is 35 lbs, will be turning three later this month and we are using the size 5s. This is a great size that the kiddos tend to stay in for a while; we switched over from using the 4s shortly after he turned two.
The size 6 diapers are what I am currently using with my 4-year-old, Jethro. Prior to moving up to the size 6, he was using the 5s for well over a year. He is a big boy and still fits into these, although I better get him sleeping without diapers at night soon because at the rate he is growing, I might have to switch to Depends. Unfortunately, he is one to pee A LOT at night, despite cutting his water intake before bed and forcing him to use the potty when he insists he doesn’t have to. Mmmhmmm, sure you don’t. I love that despite my kids refusing to wake up at night to pee, these hold up remarkably well. I’ll need to take pictures of the MASSIVE diapers I take off my boys every morning – I swear they weigh as much as a newborn!
Size 6 Diapers
Lastly, I wanted to share the gorgeous gift box you see below; it has become my new go-to gift for new parents. It includes diapers (available in size 1 and 2), wipes, and skincare products – everything you need for a newborn. I suggest this to all my mom friends as the perfect addition to their baby registry!
