Why You Should Stop Using Conventional Diapers

 

I have been talking a lot about sustainability and using healthier, cleaner products for your home and family. It’s definitely not something I was conscientious of until after I had Peyton. I never knew how harmful some of our daily products were for our bodies. Companies don’t like to make that well-known. Hmm I wonder why.

When Weston was born, we had a PLETHORA of Honest Company diapers saved up from buying them throughout my whole pregnancy. Those were the only diapers Peyton could wear without getting a rash so we figured we’d skip all that and just start Weston on those from the start. Well, it turns out, those weren’t working for him, of course. His skin was SO red in the entire shape of the diaper. So, we put him in the Huggies we had and he got a little better (which was so strange to us) but I still wasn’t completely happy with how his skin was looking.

A friend of mine spoke about Dyper in her Instagram post and I knew I had to reach out to them. Dyper is a bamboo diaper subscription company. They are free of chlorine, latex, alcohol, perfume, PVC, lotions TBT, phthalates, and ink. Perfect for a baby with sensitive skin. When I opened them, I was LOVING how soft they were and I was really excited to try them out.

Weston pees and poops A LOT. These diapers hold up extremely well. I can’t say we haven’t had ANY leaks. We have had a handful of pee leaks. This was happening WAY more often when he was wearing Huggies. As for number 2, we have had MAYBE 1 or 2 blow outs, where as with the Huggies, I was having to change his outfit MULTIPLE times a day.

The price is comparable to Honest which is a bit more than the average diaper… BUT I think it’s entirely worth it. Their bamboo diapers are naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. If you head over to Dyper’s website, you will see a live time counter of how many diapers have ended up in our landfill THIS YEAR ALONE. It takes almost five centuries for regular disposable diapers to decompose. That is TERRIBLE for our planet. I strongly encourage you to take a peak on their website and see all the statistics under the “Why Biodegradeable” tab. It’s pretty horrifying.

“Almost a third of all non biodegradable waste is due to disposable diapers. That is more than 3,500,000 tons of waste releasing pathogens for 500 years.” YUCK.

  1. Wow! It’s amazing how when you posted this the count was at 3,500,000 tons and today it’s already at over 4,290,000! I actually use Huggies with my daughter and have also tried the Honest diapers. I must say I haven’t had any issues with either yet but, I am glad there is something out there that is more biodegradable. Thanks for sharing!
