Best of the eco-friendly brands
Reviewed in the United States on May 1, 2017
My son potty-trained at 2 1/2, but 4 years later (sigh) is still not dry every night. If we remember to take him when we go to bed or he wakes on his own at night he is good, but that doesn't always happen and he wets 2-4 times a month. I used cloth diapers when he was a baby, and continued using them at nighttime until he was about 4 1/2. But he couldn't put them on himself at bedtime, and if he got up at night to pee he couldn't put them back on after using the potty. Finally, he outgrew all our cloth diapers and I didn't want to invest in bigger ones or cloth pull-ups since he is my youngest and I hoped he'd be done bedwetting any day (ha!), so I decided to find an eco-friendly and non-toxic disposable.
I tried several eco-friendly brands and these were my favorite.
Pros: Eco-friendly, and I felt comfortable with them next to my son's body. Cute but low-key design, no licensed characters, and very inconspicuous under PJs (especially after cloth diapers!). Least leaks of the kinds I tried. My son is very tall and skinny so a good/tight fit around the legs was important to me and these worked until he outgrew them (see below).
Cons: Most mornings we throw away a perfectly dry pair, but he absolutely refuses to wear them more than one night in a row, so these do get pricey. I ended up subscribing by the case directly from Bambo. Now at 6 1/2 years old and 50 pounds, though, he is outgrowing these, and half the time he leaks through them. I think because he pees too much, but also because they crawl up his bottom a bit because he is too big/tall for them and that doesn't help them be in position to catch the accident properly. I wish they made a bigger size with a larger capacity. I am finishing up our last package and will probably move on to a conventional disposable pull-up like GoodNights or UnderJams.
Also, the sides rip pretty easily. Great for taking off in the mornings, but occasionally (like maybe 5% of the time) they rip at night when he is pulling them back up after going to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Good while they fit him, though, and I would recommend.
