When Holden was a baby, we exclusively cloth diapered him and loved it! It worked for him, it worked for us, and he potty-trained super early because of it. We saved all of Holden's old cloth diapers and planned to cloth diaper Gray as well. However, when he was born, we discovered that Gray and cloth diapers just didn't mix.
Regardless of how many times I changed him during the day and night, the cloth diapers caused him to get severe diaper rashes (something we never experienced with Holden) and after a month or two of diaper rashes continuously coming and going, our pediatrician recommended that we try something different. So we packed up all of our cloth diapers and began our search for the perfect disposable diaper, hoping that would result in a healthier and happier baby. We tried a number of natural diaper brands and yet, Gray still got horrible rashes. One was so bad, that he spent an entire day completely miserable unless he was in my arms, his bum off the ground and my arms no where near his bottom.
After we thought we had exhausted all natural diaper brands, we decided to try a conventional diaper brand and guess what...he stopped getting rashes! HURRAY!
But, there was still one problem.
Our babies' delicate and sensitive skin touches diapers every second of every day, so the diaper that you choose matters a lot! And I couldn't get this thought out of my head. When we decided to cloth diaper Holden, we did a ton of research on diapers, so I knew that the chemicals in conventional diapers are harmful to both my baby and to the environment. As happy as I was to see his rashes disappear, I couldn't shake the notion that the diapers that had solved the whole rash problem were potentially harming my child in a completely different way. All I wanted was a safe diaper for this little baby of mine.
Well I am happy to say that a year later after testing what seems like a bazillion different types of diapers, I have FINALLY found a natural diaper company that I am head over heels in love with, Bambo Nature. They are allergen-free, super-soft, incredibly flexible, and ultra-absorbent. And the best news of all, these natural diapers DO NOT give Gray a rash!Bambo Nature has earned more credentials, awards, and eco-labels than any other diaper on the market and I am seriously elated to have discovered them! (Should I be embarrassed that diapers get me this excited?) If you are on the hunt for an all-natural diaper for your sweet babe, look into Bambo Nature. I highly, highly recommend them. We are big fans over here.
