I was unable to find Tushies and was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy a small pack of these for my trial??? Anyone??
So here's how The Great Diaper Challenge will work. I plan to test each brand through an entire small pack (however that many may be). I will post my initial response on the first day and then keep track of the number of blow outs and pee thru's that occur during the course of the pack. I will also weigh in on added features and drawbacks of each diaper. Once I've used up the last of each pack I will post the results and then have a final overview once all brands have been tried and announce the winning brand, or the one this family will decide to "subscribe" to on Amazon.com.
So First up: Nature Babycare
Nature Babycare By Naty features eco-friendly diapers made in Sweden (Gunnar's scandanavian routes are excited about this fact!)
The size 2 diapers which we are using are for babies 12-18 lbs.
|Seriously thin diapers!|
The diaper features:
- 100% chlorine free
- Based on biodegradable materials

My initial reaction when opening the bag was: "Wow! These suckers are thin!" So if you're really looking for a diaper that will slenderize your babies back side...these could be the diaper you've been waiting for. No extra bulk here. The feel is pretty soft and they are completely fragrant free. The design has adorable little discrete gray suns stamped on. They aren't exactly contoured the way pampers or huggies seem to be...they are quite "rectangular". But I'm not sure if that matters.
One MAJOR downside to these diapers is the velcro only adheres to the front top side of the diaper. So if you to like fold them up and close them tight when they're filled with poo...this is quite a challenge, and at times not even possible.

MAJOR bonus...these ARE biodegradable. I'm not sure what biodegradable high loft means...but they advertise that these do decompose at a fast rate. So score one for the environment on these babies!
With one day down and 6 diapers used we've had one pee-thru so far.

In Other News! Gunnar has a new sleep record of 10 straight hours (which he did on Friday night!) and he is definitely starting to "chub out"! We were able to put on some pants today!! Crazy!
Also...after 6 months of nursing the final book of "Twilight" I have finally finished it. And now I am desperate for a new "light and fun" read. Anyone have good suggestions???
