I have always been an environmentally conscious person, so when I found out I was pregnant with Zoë, I started reading up on cloth diapers. I was determined that we would use cloth diapers with her.
However, my husband was completely opposed to that idea. He didn’t want his clothes washed in the same machine as ‘baby poo.’ And try as I may, there was no way I was changing his mind.
So, I started looking at cloth diaper delivery services, but there was only one in San Diego. They only did prefolds and they were expensive. Scratch that.
After that, I started researching other environmentally friendly options for diapering and I came across biodegradable diapers. From my research, I only found one brand of diapers that was easily accessible in the US that was actually fully biodegradable. The brand is Nature Babycare Biodegradable Diapers.
At first I was a little nervous about how the quality would be, but I had read good reviews, so we decided to give them a shot. They are available on Amazon, which is great.
When they arrived at our door, I opened up one of the packages to check them out. They had a nice, simple pattern on them and the quality seemed to be just fine to me.
So, when Zoë was finally born, we got to try them out. I had also gotten a bunch of Huggies and Pampers as gifts, so I decided to do a sort of trial between Nature BabyCare biodegradable diapers, Huggies and Pampers.
I started noticing that the Nature BabyCare biodegradable diaper stack was always lower than the other two stacks, so I would compensate by taking one from the other piles. I mentioned it to my husband and he said he always used the Nature BabyCare diapers – he liked them the best.
After using the biodegradable diapers for a while, I decided that I also liked the Nature BabyCare the best out of the three brands. Huggies came in second and Pampers was a very distant third (I hate the squishy feeling that Pampers have and I don’t like the way they smell).
So, if you’re looking for an environmentally friendly diaper and just can’t use cloth diapers for whatever reason, take a look at Nature Babycare Biodegradable Diapers.
