If you’re looking for a more environmentally friendly disposable diaper, the new improved 365 Everyday Value™ Baby Diapers from Whole Foods are a great choice. As a mother of 4 children, I have tried pretty much every diaper in search of a greener disposable that works, but we always end up going back to the same not so green brand. My children react to almost every diaper we have tried, except for a certain major brand. The few that don’t bother their skin have leaked horribly or have seemed stiff and uncomfortable. None have made both me and my children happy until now. The 365 Everyday Value™ Baby Diapers passed on all counts.
Normally, we use cloth diapers, but do use disposables as needed, so we always keep some on hand. I substituted the 365 Everyday Value™ Baby Diapers for out cloth diapers for a full week for both my 9 month old daughter and my 23 month old son. My daughter is huge for her age, quite chubby in the waist, while my son is tall, skinny. They are hard to fit on the best of days and both can overwhelm even an industrial strength diaper on an light day. The 365 diapers fit both perfectly (both actually can wear the size 4) and we had not 1 single leak of any kind for the week, rare at our house. Even when I thought I might be pushing it a bit or through longer naps, everyone stayed dry. Best of all, my super sensitive son had no reaction of any kind to the 365 diaper, which is amazing. In fact, I think his skin looked better coming out of the week of 365 diapers than it did going in. So much so, that I need to make a trip to Whole Foods to pick up more.
New and improved, they offer some great new features and improved sizing at an even lower price than before, $9.99 per package, which works out to less than we’ve been paying for our regular disposable. The diapers offer an accordion stretch waistband and super secure tabs for a really secure fit. Even better is what is and isn’t inside. These are chlorine free, hypo-allergenic, latex free, and contain no perfumes or dyes with an absorbency gel made from a non-toxic super absorbent polymer. This is so much better for your baby’s skin and better for the Earth as well. Made from wood pulp fluff sourced from family-owned, sustainably managed forests they also use less resources than traditional plastic diapers and take up less space in the landfill.
There are no cute characters, just a nice sleek, trim, white diaper, but you won’t miss the designs one bit. It’s such a small trade off for a diaper that is so much better for your child and the planet in so many ways. With 365 Everyday Value™ Baby Diapers, you can take a step to minimize your impact on the Earth while treating yourself and your baby to a safer, gentler diaper with a great fit that really performs well too.
