I’ve been raving about the Swedish brand Nature Babycare since my first snerd was born, but I forget how awesome the diapers are until I’m forced to use another brand.
On vacation –reeking havoc on my “summer of buff” goal– we ran out of Nature Babycare diapers (that aren’t available in most stores– I order them from Amazon.com or Diapers.com) and grabbed some Huggies “Pure & Natural”– the only green-ish option available at Acme. Turns out there’s nothing eco-friendly about this “pure & natural” diaper. It’s plastic-based, dyed white (including winnie-the-pooh images) and totally a marketing ploy. Boo on Huggies for even trying to claim anything about their diaper is “natural”.
Adding to the waste and my overall annoyance, I had to change the Huggies diapers twice as often and they still leaked! I couldn’t wait to get home and rip open a new package of Nature Babycare diapers (and I’m not in any way connected to the company or getting any kind of incentive to write this, I just love when a company does it right). And Nature Babycare diapers aren’t any more expensive than leading brands of disposables– especially if you use Amazon Mom and Amazon’s Subscribe & Save– two awesome programs designed for busy, budget-conscious moms.
I guess Swedish women have better sex (according to this article, albeit with baby in bed) and better diapers.
