Part of my 2021 goals is to live more sustainably and be more intentional about the products I am using in my own home. This has become even more important now that I have a newborn in my life. I want the best for my baby, so I’m constantly reading and researching the ingredients that are in her products before I make a purchase. That applies even to the diapers she is wearing.
Even though diapers can be dismissed as something you wouldn’t spend top dollar for because they are disposable, it’s probably one of the more important things that you want to be paying attention to.
As a new mom who had never been exposed to the diaper world, I was honestly in shock at how many dirty diapers I was throwing away at each changing. This cannot be good for the landfill! Imagine myself and how many other families going through dozens of diapers a day. There’s got to be a better solution, right?
Why Nest Diapers?
As a vegan myself, I gravitate towards anything plant-based and natural. When I heard about Nest diapers, I was immediately sold. Plus their mission statement aligns with my values.
My Experience with Nest Diapers
Nest gifted me a case of size 1 diapers and I wanted to wait to write a thorough review until I had a chance to test them out.
Here are just a few reasons why I fell in love with these diapers:
The absorbency on these diapers are excellent. The reason is that they use sustainably sourced chlorine-free fluff wood pulp. I was pleasantly surprised at how light a urine-soaked diaper was compared to Huggies or Pampers. Plus they have an absorbent top sheet that helps keep your baby’s skin dry. These diapers have the urine-sensitive strip that runs the length of the diaper to indicate when it’s time to change the diaper (yellow to blue).
Compostable and Eco-Friendly
Nest diapers are designed to degrade with its plant-based sustainable materials (wood, cane, bamboo). That means you are contributing to a greener planet when you use Nest. Although composting is available in only select cities for now, Nest has plans to develop and expand. You can read more about composting here.
I plan on using all sizes of Nest diapers throughout my baby’s growth. For reference, my baby is wearing size one currently at five weeks old. I was excited to see they carry a range of sizes, all the way up to training pants for when your little one is ready to start potty training.
I hesitated on using cloth diapers even though they are much better for the environment, so I am thankful to have these in stock. You can check out their website for sizing info.
Thankful to have discovered Nest Diapers and I can’t suggest these enough. They’re definitely worth a trial run to see if your baby does well in them or even to gift. Here’s to a greener planet!
