Top critical review
April 26, 2016
I purchased the Earth's Best brand after extensively reading research and reviews on green diapers. Previous to these diapers, I had been using Seventh Generation. I personally like S.G. better than this E.B. brand. Here's the info:
*Size/shape issues: Size 2 starts at 12lbs. My baby is now 14lbs, and they're still a little big for him. I have them secured up higher on his waist, and they still look saggy and have lots of extra room in the crotch. Although they "fit," the straps are also on as tightly as possible (meeting together in the middle). In my experience, be aware they run large.
*They smell like urine. With the S.G. brand, I never smelled urine. With these, it is very easy to know when he has peed. As soon as I lean near his crib, I can pick up the smell. For this reason alone, I don't believe I'll purchase these again.
Other than that, no major problems or issues, which is why they received three stars as an "okay" diaper. They hold everything in pretty well, so that's good - only occasional leaks - and generally he can pee more than once and be okay (night time).
