I have a new favorite disposable diaper! If you have been reading my blog for a while, then you know that I switched to cloth diapers in the spring. When the summer came around, our schedule changed, we were always on the go, and I had to pull the cord on cloth for a few months – especially after we ran into a cloth diaper funk issue (that’s for another post!)
So we went off on a journey to find the perfect eco friendly disposable diaper and I tried a few common brands, but I was not as happy as I was with my landfill clogging leading name brand of diapers. They just fit perfectly, didn’t sag when wet, and held the contents very well. When I had the opportunity to work with Bambo Nature, an eco friendly diaper I had not tried yet, I knew I had to try them. At this point, I am turning into a diaper guru – I have tried just about everything out there! Bambo Nature diapers are considered to be the Greenest disposable in Europe!
A huge issue I have with all diapers is that although according to my daughter’s weight, the width of the diaper does not cover her predisposed wide hips – poor kid. Just recently I discovered that the size 4 diapers that she has been in for about a year does not cover her entire rear. So, in our normal diapers she gets a size 5 now, although those are VERY high on her waist.
With Bambo Nature diapers, I was not sure if I should order a size 4 or 4+. Check out the sizing chart below:
|Bambo Nature Range||Bambo Baby Diaper Selection|
|Size 2 Mini – 6.5 to 13 lbs||Size 0 Premature – 2.2 to 6.6 lbs|
|Size 3 Midi – 11 to 22 lbs||Size 1 Newborn – 4.4 to 8.8 lbs|
|Size 4 Maxi – 18 to 40 lbs||Training Pants: Size 4+ Maxi Plus – Fits 30 lbs or more|
|Size 4+ Maxi+ – 26 to 48 lbs||Training Pants: Size 6 XL Plus – Fits 39 lbs or more|
|Size 5 Junior – 33 to 55 lbs|
The people over at Bambo Nature were nice enough to send over both sizes for me to try. I decided to go with the size 4 first. I was actually surprised that these diapers covered her entirely, so we worked through the first package. I have to admit, for eco-friendly diapers – these hold A LOT. They don’t leak… Ever. I even took the chance and put her in them overnight – she is a heavy wetter. She woke up on top of dry sheets. I also find myself going through less diapers per day because they hold so much. They even mask the smell of poopie diapers. My little girl usually has a trail similar to Pepe Le’Pew behind her, but not with these diapers. I can honestly say that I found a new brand of disposable diapers and I’m hoping to see these diapers on a shelf in my stores real soon.
Check out some more information about Bambo Nature Diapers:

In addition, Abena has successfully passed independent tests from proDERM and the Danish Asthma & Allergy Association which declare that the product poses the smallest possible risk of causing allergies and skin irritation. Bambo Nature products also explicitly list all of the “Product Ingredients” as well as the harmful chemicals and substances NOT within their diaper. Bambo Nature contains no perfumes, lotions or deodorants. No phthalates, organotins (MBT, DBT, TBT), heavy metals, Cl (chlorine), HCHO (formaldehyde), colophonium, AZO-pigments, PVC, substances known as harmful to health or the environment, known allergens, substances classified as locally irritating, sensitizing, carcinogenic or mutagenic have been added during the production of the raw material or used during production of the finished product.

In addition, Bambo Nature contains no perfume, odor inhibitors or lotion/moisturizer in order to avoid allergic reactions. The reason is that such lotions may contain allergizing agents that have only been added to prevent odor. Allergies are a growing problem for children and adults alike. Furthermore, babies have sensitive skin, so Abena has been working diligently to develop quality products that do not contain perfume, coloring agents or any other unnecessary additives. So when you choose Bambo Nature you choose to be good to your baby’s skin.”
The above statement is very important to me. I have been trying to avoid all these harsh chemicals to my baby since I was pregnant, but unfortunately when it comes to diapering, you can become limited. I highly recommend Bambo Nature Diapers and will continue to use them as my regular disposable diaper!
