If you’ve been following my blog for a while, especially since its conception, then you know I cloth diaper my son. We had been cloth diapering full time, but this spring things have changed a bit. First, I decided to use disposable diapers for all trips (it’s just much, much easier to use disposables when you’re traveling), and then last month poor Little J had a terrible diaper rash from being on medication and having a wonky stomach.
I do like the natural diaper rash solutions, but none of them seem to work as well for him as zinc oxide…which can stain or damage cloth diapers. So if Little J has a rash, I reach for the disposables! How convenient is it that we received a box of Seventh Generation Diapers to review the same month he was exclusively wearing disposables?
Seventh Generation is the first FSCÂ® certified diaper made in the US, and I think that’s pretty awesome! What that means is the Forest Stewardship Council has recognized the environmental efforts Seventh Generation has made while making these diapers to “encourage healthy forest growth,” “prevent loss of natural forest cover,” and more, including transparency in their forest management procedures.
Seventh Generation Diapers are unbleached (no chlorine-processing), as well as free of fragrances, inks, and petroleum-based lotions. Their Free and Clear wipes are hypoallergenic, as well as free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, parabens, and phthalates. Little J’s skin is much more sensitive than mine, and I’m happy knowing that I’m putting him in a diaper that won’t aggravate his skin.
The wipes are quite thick, and I’m pleasedÂ with how well they clean Little J. I don’t have to use as many wipes as I do with other brands. The diapers fit him well. Little J is 2-years-old and 24 pounds in these photos. He’s wearing size/stage 4. He doesn’t have any problems with the diaper leaking overnight, but I should mention that Little J has never been a “heavy wetter.” We’ve never experienced those types of leaks. My favorite thing about these diapers is the lack of that heavy, unnatural perfume smell you get with other brands.
You can find out more about Seventh Generation and their products at seventhgeneration.com, but you’ll also find the diapers in many online and brick/mortar stores.
Right now Seventh Generation is having a pretty cool contest on Instagram! See details below:
We love Seventh Generation! I didn’t used to care for their wipes, but when I recently got a container, I thought they were a lot thicker than they used to be. I wonder if they changed them, or if I got a bad batch when I first tried them out. Regardless, I like them now! ðŸ™‚
Those sound like awesome diapers. My boys are all grown, but I will tell my SIL about them because she just had a baby.
It’s great that they are making a product that’s good for kids with sensitive skin. I don’t have any kids but a lot of my friends do so I’ve smded the plasticky scent of a diaper.
Good to know that there are eco-friendly (sensitive skin) options out there for the disposables, i will have to pass on the info to my cousin for her new baby!
I just recently tried these diapers and they work great! It was hard for me to get used to them at first, but they’re perfect! NO LEAKS!
I wish I would have known these were around when my boys were in diapers. They sound awesome!
I’ve always wondered how these diapers perform as well as their benefits. Thanks for sharing both aspects with us!
I use their cleaning supplies. But, I had no idea that they made diapers.
We really like Having SG diapers as an option. I’ve found they don’t absorb as much as regular sposies but more than cloth so they’re a good backup!
Thanks for sharing I been thinking a lot about using 7th generation diapers instead of the mainstream brands but couldn’t find useful information, now this diapers sound even better
I love Seventh Generation products! So great that you were able to find something that works for you!
I never used Seventh Generation diapers but I had a lot of friends that did and they LOVED them. The wipes sound great too
I wish they had these when my babies were little. I dont want to think about the amount of waste, no pun intended.
I really like that they make their diapers without all those yucky dyes and things!
Sharing your review with a friend that is having her first baby..she is very interesting in reading reviews about baby products.
I absolutely love Seventh Generation… their products and their philosophy!
My niece is having her 3rd child soon. I am going to share this post with her. By the time you have your 2nd and 3rd child, you’re ready to find out about diaper alternatives, especially ones that are more organic to your lifestyle and the needs of your family.
Looks like a good brand of diapers, wish I had them when my daughter was still in diapers.
I like this brand, I used to use them for my son, they hold up nicely.
I really like Seventh Generation products. They work well and their company seems to care for more than profit, like many other companies ðŸ™‚
I used 7th Gen the first 6 months for my baby. After that, somehow his stuff kept going right through. Not sure what was happening then.
My daughter is due in Septemeber so I have been researching diapers. Eco friendly is the way to go. I don’t think she will do cloth.
I cloth diapered my daughter on and off but I think with this baby, I want to use eco-friendly diapers and I’m actually considering the Seventh Generation brand!
