Now (still) on my second diaper wearer, I have stuck to only one brand over the last five years (a big name brand I won't mention). Recently I was asked to review the Seventh Generation's Free and Clear Diapers and Wipes. Even though we are (hopefully) nearing the end of diapering, I was interested to learn about these since my sister just gave birth to her first.
When these first arrived, I was extremely skeptical because of how they looked. The diapers had a beyond natural appearance and construction, looking very similar to that of cardboard and tissue. Seventh Generation Free and Clear Diapers are made of a chlorine free wood pulp, with the absorbent core containing "corn- and wheat-derived materials to reduce the use of non-renewable petrochemicals."
After researching these a little more, I also discovered that the reason for the light brown color as opposed to the traditional white color you see in most other diapers, is because they use chlorine-free pigments to color the diapers naturally and safely. This natural process makes customers aware they ARE using Seventh Generation!
What started as a concerning factor in using these diapers, quickly turned me onto the diaper and style much more! To be honest I was beyond surprised about the softness of these as soon as I opened the package. They were unbelievably fluffy and seemed so comfortable (that is if I was the one wearing them, lol).
This is one of those feel good companies which plays an all around great role for the environment and for your family. I am happy to use a product which actually fits my crazy child as he runs wild and while sleeping. We have honestly had no leaks at night since switching over to this brand a few weeks ago as well as no rashes anywhere!
Cost/Available to Purchase: $10.99 average per package
Recommendation: These diapers are extremely inexpensive for such an amazing quality. They work and play a great part in the health of your child as well as the environment.
