Um hi. In what world is getting diapers delivered to your door this exciting. This packaging. This print. The softness. And good for our mama earth. Parasol Co - you did good.
Mamas. Let’s talk diapers and wipes and teeny squishy baby bums.
We all love our babies and want the best for them. And we also want them to not pee and poop all over us all day, so clearly, they need those tushies covered.
So, our skin is the largest organ of our body and absorbs ev.er.y.thing.
Which means that the diapers that we use are literally sitting on that skin, 24/7, 365, for 1.5-3ish years.
Every single day. Every hour of the day. For years.
That freaked me the F out when I had Grey.
We used Honest diapers and wipes when I had Grey and looovvedddd them. But by the time we had Mila, the diapers and wipes from Honest had gone down the tube and totally sucked. The quality seriously went down and I was so bummed because we really did love them.
Most other non toxic diapers we tried were crunchy and stiff, and also, not so “crunchy” in ingredients once I looked into them.
The conventional ones they give you in hospitals and in regular baby stores are soft but so laden with toxins that have no business being in my babe’s skin all day every day.
The fact is that there are several potentially harmful chemicals that are known to be present in some disposable diapers, including chlorine, dyes, fragrances, phthalates, dioxins, and more.
When you see ‘fragrance’ on a personal care product's label, just read it as ‘hidden chemicals.’ Why should you care?
This is a major loophole in the FDA's federal law that allows manufacturers to include nearly ANY ingredient (even toxic ones) in their products under the name ‘fragrance’ - gross and deceptive.
The problem with diapers, is most companies won’t list what’s in there.
If they don't say it's not in there, then assume it's in there.
So, I look for diapers that list what is NOT in them. If your diaper doesn’t say that they are free from these harmful chemicals, just assume they are in there. 🙄
Okay so here are my two faves for Mila this time around.
Parasol and Andy Pandy😍😍
These diapers are legit amazing, ridiculously soft, toxin free, and super adorbs.
They are hypoallergenic and free of heavy metals, lead, latex, and fragrance, chlorine.
They have super cute patterns too! They run a little small, so I size up for Mila. We do the monthly bundle of diapers only. (Their wipes are good, but I am super picky about wipes and use YL Seedlings instead)
So freaking super soft and made from
Bamboo. They are naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial, perffff for sensitive skin. They feel almost like silk (really!) and there are no chlorine, preservatives, phthlates, latex, pvc, or fragrances. They also have a wetness indicator line too, if you dig that. These fit Mila a little better than Parasol, and we use them for overnight too!
I Amazon Prime these to hotels when we travel 😍
We use the Young Living Seedling wipes! I used to use Honest and loved them, but again, they changed them and now they suck. Water wipes I’ve used in a pinch but I cannot STAND the feel of them. They literally make my skin crawl lol. Parasol were fine, but Seedlings have won my baby-poop wiping heart 😍😍😂😂
They don’t contain chlorine, alcohol, sulfates, parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, animal-derived ingredients, synthetic preservatives, synthetic fragrances, or synthetic dyes. 🙌🏻 Peace. Of. Mind.
They are thick and soft and amazing.
They have essential oils (duh) to soothe, nourish, and calm. I order them every month in my wellness box and save 24% plus get 25% back AND don’t have to leave my house to buy them so it’s a total win for me. 😂😂🙌🏻🙌🏻 Grab your own here <3
I hope this helps some of my mama friends out there who want to #knowbetterdobetter!
