There are a million and two products available for mothers these days, and I can get so easily overwhelmed by it all. I had to learn to slowly do my own research, ask my sisters or friends for recommendations, and just test things out on my own to find what is best for my family. That’s why I occasionally like to share what is working for us, in hopes it can help some of you also in the “overwhelmed” department!
Rocco has had the most sensitive skin of all of my babies, and I tried at least 5 different brands throughout the year to find one he wouldn’t react to. I settled on one that he didn’t break out with, but was not too happy knowing the materials could contain harmful products. I had used Seventh Generation for cleaning products already, but hadn’t heard of their diapers until more recently. We have had such a good experience with them, and I am eager to talk about them with friends and family now. We have been slowly converting over to chemical free items in home products, sunscreen and beauty, laundry care, etc. so I was so relieved to find disposable diapers that contained no fragrances, petroleum-based lotions, or chlorine processing.
It’s also important to me that they don’t leak easily. These Free & Clear diapers have been working overnight with Rocco as they combine high absorbency with a comfy fit around the legs. I wish we would have discovered these sooner!
As I have researched about what ingredients and products can be harmful to my little ones, it has made me want to go through everything that touches their skin and read the labels more carefully. So much can be absorbed through the skin and into the bloodstream, and it only made sense to check my diapers and wipes! I hadn’t really considered it until recent years as these studies of safe ingredients have come to the front lines. My one complaint? I can never smell when Rocco has dirtied his diaper;) These diapers are odor eaters!
I have also switched our wipes over to the Seventh Generation Free & Clear wipes. They are thick, durable, and generously-sized, but are also hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, dyes, parabens, and phthalates.
I’m still in the learning phase of finding what products fit best in our family, but so happy to have at least the diaper and wipes department figured out! Have you all tried these before?
