Im assuming my hypothetical future child will inherit all of my allergies, so when I discover companies that make gentle, nontoxic, plant-based products, I take note. That's why I was so excited to hear about Healthybaby, which has developed an organic cotton diaper that has received positive feedback from parents and babies alike. Also, the company has developed other baby-safe products that you can use after the diaper years.
Organic Diapers from Healthybabys are nominated.
The Healthybaby diaper is designed to be sensory-friendly and free of chemicals and neurotoxins. Its made with super-soft organic cotton and baby's skin only comes into contact with plant-based materials, including sugarcane and wood pulp that has been FSC certified for responsible forest management. According to the brand, they are also the first and only diaper to be tested for harmful substances on the Environmental Working Groups list.
Fragrances, parabens, phthalates, chlorine, and other potentially irritating ingredients are all there in Healthybabys, and the company seems to be living up to that motto with its ingredients.
Review of Diaper
Healthybabys diaper was crowned Best Organic Diaper by The Bump in 2021, and Most Dependable Diaper by Good Housekeeping. On the other hand, reviewers and their babies are enthralled:
These training pants are so soft that my daughter refuses to take them off in the morning. They are also super soft. I only wish I knew about [Healthybaby] sooner! - Ricky F.
My daughter refers to these diapers as "soft ones" and prefers them to any other brand. She now knows what she wants, and there is no going back! - Amy J.
These are exceptional quality diapers. Extremely soft and gentle for your child's delicate skin. I also like the simplicity of the design. Best diapers on the market in my opinion. Worth every penny! - Inna E.
Our newborn had sensitive skin so we tried several different brands. All of them left her with skin irritations around her legs. We switched over to [Healthybaby] diapers and it made a world of difference! The diapers are the softest we have ever used. - Jason F.
Healthybaby is offering a plant-based balm that, frankly, I'm willing to use myself. The balm is made of a prebiotic complex to protect the natural skin biome, Manuka honey to strengthen the skin barrier, and papaya seed oil to soothe dry, itchy skin.
What you receive are five packs of Healthybabys award-winning organic diapers and four packs of plant-based wet wipes, as well as one-on-one parent mentoring and access to the Healthybabys library of stage-appropriate activities.
What it includes: 4 packs of award-winning organic diapers in the infant sized (size 1); 4 packs of plant-based wet wipes; 1 trial-sized shampoo and body wash concentrate (4 oz.) plus a stainless steel foam pump bottle; 1 trial-sized cleaning concentrate (4 oz.)
