Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers

I received a small package of Seventh Generation's newly re-designed Free & Clear diapers to try on my monkeys. As luck would have it, both of them wear the same size diaper due to having a boy that doesn't stop eating and an older daughter that eats like a bird. That meant that I got to try the diapers on each of them. First thing I noticed is that the packaging is minimal. The package can even by recycled at your supermarket's plastic bag recycling collection point. That, in addition to a redesigned lighter-weight core that is both more efficient at absorption and uses less processed chlorine free wood pulp, means that they contribute less to overall landfill use.

The second thing I noticed is the difference in color, it's a light brown that automatically reminds you that you're doing a great thing for both your child and the environment. The diapers don't have 'decorations' on them, but I don't miss them at all. Neither of my kids really bothered to check out the illustrations on their diapers before.  Though I admit that I did almost put a diaper on my son that was inside out because it looks the same all over. To be fair, I was really tired at the time and Bro Bro monkey was being fussy and squirmy.



Aside from the obvious benefits of using Seventh Generation's Free & Clear diapers, I was really impressed with the design. In a pinch I've tried other brands of diapers and have been severely disappointed so I was skeptical about how these would perform. Immediately I saw that the tabs are generously sized and fasten really well. Having a boy that likes to take his diaper off randomly, I was really appreciative of how secure these are. Also, they perform fantastically. We've not had any leaks or blowouts in the short time we've been using them. The monkeys have really sensitive skin and get diaper rashes easily so I feel better about the fact that these don't have added fragrances or any chlorine.

I am always concerned about my ecological footprint in the world, but am afraid to sacrifice quality in some things. Honestly, I can feel good about making the switch to Seventh Generation's Free & Clear diapers. I was really impressed with them.

  1. Seventh Generation Diapers are our favorite, but they can get to be pretty pricey, especially without a coupon!

  45. I would think the Seventh Generation Diapers is one of the top choices in the market. Rash free, chlorine free and on top of that -
    environmentally friendly. My baby stop developing rashes ever since I used it. Read more about the Seventh Generation Diapers.
