Plant-based eco friendly diapers that you need to try
It’s 2019 and I am so happy to come across a diaper company that is doing good for this planet. The amount of diapers that I go through on the daily with this kid is unreal. I mean if i’m being honest he has had three blow outs already.
Diapers are an essential for any new mom. As a new mom it is so hard to decide which diapers are the best for your baby. There are a million options out there. What I look for is a diaper that is made for sensitive skin, no harsh chemicals, they have to be able to hold up throughout the night, and I like diapers that have the wetness indicator.
Nest diapers met all my criteria for a great diaper. I am so excited to be a Nest partner. What was the cherry on top was that they were plant-based and compostable! I’ve tried a couple eco friendly diapers before and what I didn’t like was that they seemed super stiff. Nest diapers on the other hand are surprisingly very soft.
What makes Nest diapers different?
Nest diapers are different from the rest of diapers on the market because they are made from plant based materials. They are very transparent about what their diapers are made with. According to their site they are made with the following materials
Wood pulp- acts as an absorber
Polylactic acid- film material
Sodium polyacrylate- absorber
Viscose- film material
Starch- absorber and binder
Polymer spandex- fastening system
Poly-propylene- fastening system
Elastin- leg gathers
Synthetic rubber- adhesive glue
If you check on their site here they have an actual list of compost providers. Most companies will actually come and pick up the diapers from you and dispose of them properly.
Nest diapers come in sizes 1 up to size 5. Diapers can be ordered by the bag which contains about 27-40 diapers depending on the size, or by the case which is about a monthly supply and contains 108-132 diapers again depending on the size.
Nest diapers aways offers free shipping which is an awesome perk! They will soon be offering a subscribing option which is so important. I can’t tell you how many times my mom brain ran out of diapers. The worst feeling ever!
Durability and wear
Like i’ve said I have tried eco friendly diaper brands before and this other brand that I have tried was a very stiff and it did not feel very absorbent. I first sampled a diaper from nest and I was surprised. Right away by just holding the diaper I could tell that it was something I would love. It was soft, it wasn’t thin & flimsy, it had a wetness indicator which I am a fan of.
I need a diaper that would hold up throughout the night. My son unfortunately nurses throughout the night, so he wets his diapers multiple times throughout the night. When he wakes up he is ready for a diaper change, so it is important that a diaper withstands all the urine.
These diapers held up throughout the night. We had no leaks or wet pajamas in the morning. Of course we were ready for a diaper change, but the diaper was able to absorb all the urine.
