I was so lucky to be given the opportunity to get to try out Seventh Generation diapers and wipes these last few weeks. Being the first diapers to be called the FSC Certified Diapers made in North America (that’s Forest Stewardship Council), I was a little nervous! I’ve been using the same diapers for all four of my kiddos. That means for the last 7 years I have been through more than 25,000 diapers. Oh. my. Gosh. That is a lot of diapers. When I was given the opportunity to be able to try something a bit more eco-friendly, I jumped at the chance. Seventh Generation diapers are free of chlorine processing, synthetic fragrances and lotions. Knowing this, I had this slight fear that I was going to open the package and find mini-brown paper bags. Fear not mommies! What I found inside were actually soft, comfortable and absorbent. They were brown though. That’s the limit of the comparability to a brown paper bag! My little lady remained indifferent to the diapers, and honestly that was probably the best. The diapers held up to some of the worst blowouts! I’ve been through over 40 changes with these diapers and they have held their own. I think the only real thing I miss from these are the smell. Because they are fragrant free, there is no “baby” smell. Fear not! By adding a little bit of baby powder, you’ll never know the difference. As for the wipes, there was a difference of opinions in my household! The Seventh Generation wipes tend to run on the thicker side. My personal preference leans more towards the thinner stuff, but that is not the same for my sister (who has changed her share of diapers). She believes that the thickness of the wipes helps to absorb more. I, on the other hand, feel like the thickness of the wipe takes away from its flexibility. Eh, to each his own. Would I try Seventh Generation again? You betcha! My save-the-day-super-mom side loves the idea of being just a little bit more eco-friendly. The diapers worked just as well as my tried and true diapers. By switching I can take my two thousand plus diapers out of the landfills and feel a little better about making this world a better place. I was not compensated for this review. All opinions are my own.
