Seventh Generation Diapers

Seventh Generation likes to disclose all the ingredients they use in their products. That includes their chlorine free diapers which range in sizes newborn to size six. This means that not only are Seventh Generation diapers chlorine free they are also fragrance and latex free as well as being hypo-allergenic. For the mother of a baby with sensitive skin these diapers are heaven sent.

I'm not going to wax poetic about these diapers despite the fact that I could. I am just going to state plainly why I think they are the best diapers around and deserving of an MPR five star rating. It isn't just because they are a green product either, believe me I have tried my fair share of those and some are not worth any amount of money. I love Seventh Generation diapers above all others for the following-

1. No chlorine and no fragrances = no diaper rash. Ever. If I happen to run out and need to use another brand of diaper my kid automatically turns red with a rash. I go back to using Seventh Generation and the rash disappears.

2. These diapers are super absorbent. The polymer used is very absorbent and not as harmful as other diaper brands. My daughter can go all night in these diapers and the diaper is still dry to the touch on the outside which is never the case with other brands. I stand amazed.

3. The resealable closure tabs and elastic gatherings on the legs fit very well and while the sizes seem to run a bit smaller and shorter than say, Pampers or Huggies, they still work remarkably well and don't fall off.

4. Seventh Generation diapers break the myth that green products automatically cost more money. I bought four packs of size one diapers (176 diapers) recently and spent less than $50. That is about $25 cheaper than if I had bought the same amount of diapers from another name brand. I could buy the store brand but then I would have leaky diapers, more rashes and tons of laundry to do. Is that really worth saving me a few dollars? No, I think not.

My only real complaint is that I wish I had tried these diapers out with my first child. It would have saved me a ton of money in diapers and diaper rash creme and I would have had a happier baby.

Seventh Generation diapers can be purchased at Wegmans, BabiesRUs, CVS and online at Amazon, and other fine retailers.
