Bambo Nature Diaper Review

Oh diapers… I can not wait till I don’t have to buy them anymore. However until that point, I try to be as picky as I can be with what brands I buy. Babies can have super sensitive skin and diapers can be one of the main reasons why they can get diaper rash. Conventional diapers bleach their cotton, use perfumes and fragrances and even chlorine. Not to mention, most that you buy can sit in the landfill for 500 YEARS before decomposing! YIKES!

I am a big supporter for cloth diapering. They are more of an investment in the beginning, but the money you save over time is huge. I’ve cloth diapered both my children to a certain age. Let’s be honest though, cloth diapers aren’t always the easiest when your on the go. The convenience of disposable diapers is huge.

A while back, I made a post about natural and organic brands for baby products. One of the categories were for diapers. Some of them I had already tried, but one I hadn’t yet was Bambo Nature. It was time!

Bambo offers a eco friendly diaper that is super absorbent, but doesn’t have any of the harmful chemicals or allergens.

My youngest is in diapers 24/7 and my oldest only wears some form of diaper or pull up to bed. I knew I’d be able to give these diapers a good test! Both of my girls wear a size 5, and Bambo’s sizing is true.

I have to mention that they are absolutely adorable and very soft!

They held up to every absorbency test that I could throw at them. If it was either overnight or a long outing, we never had an issue with leakage. The one thing I loved, was that it kept the moisture off the surface. So, even if the diaper was wet, it didn’t feel like that.

They are really flexible and held up the test of an 18 month of running around with just the diaper on. She’s pretty rough on diapers. One, she loves to be naked, so she definitely tried to rip it off a few times…it stayed on!

She’s got some thigh rolls and most diapers leave marks.. not these, she seemed pretty comfortable in them…

I mean, look at this diaper bum!

Is that not just the cutest thing you’ve ever seen?

ok.. I may be a tad bit bias…

BUT, I really liked these diapers!

They are such a great alternative to conventional diapers.

They are not that much more either than conventional diapers and you get so much more with them. Knowing that they have zero irritants and allergens, means less diaper rash and less chemicals being introduced into your baby’s body!

You can easily get these diapers for Bambo’s website or other retailers. They also make pull ups and baby wipes!

All Natural/Organic Baby Product Guide

Having children can make you a nervous wreck. You’re now responsible for this little human, to keep them happy and healthy. The happy part is pretty easy. Well, unless you’re child is like my youngest daughter, then it makes things a little more of challenge. However, for the most part, you play with them and give them attention and they are content. Keeping them healthy seems like it is a pretty easy job, but looking at labels anymore can make any heart race. So many preservatives, artificial who knows what and chemicals galore. Their little bodies and their super thin skin can be easily irritated by the smallest things. That’s why as parents we need to conscious of what we buy and use. To top it off, most of these chemicals are cancer causing. I know, I personally never want my child to ever have to go through something like that.

One thing to remember, just because the store sells it, doesn’t mean it’s safe. One large company years ago……*cough Johnson and Johnson *cough, finally removed formaldehyde from their ingredients and lately were sued for causing ovarian cancer with their talc (baby powder). It’s crazy to me. Just because they label products “soft” and “gentle”, could be anything but that. Or even better, using the words “natural”, when really only 1 ingredient is.  Just be aware and read your labels. If you can’t pronounce it, google it or look the product up yourself on the Environmental Working Group page.

Luckily, there are so many great companies that offer alternatives to many of the products we buy for our children. Yes, they might cost a little more, but it’s worth it.

I’ve been researching a lot of these companies and thinking about all the categories needing to cover. Anything and everything that touches their skin.. Eating is a whole other post..  but this is what I came up with. Please look at the ingredients list closely as most links just get you to a main page of products. If you question a product, run it through the EWG. Overall I hope this helps raise awareness to safer products to use for your children.
