How do I know my baby is allergic to SAP's? I'll tell you! At 12 months of age, having been diapered only in Pampers, he developed a rash that seemed to be concentrated around areas that were the wettest (front area). After using every cream on the market (including a whole jar of Triple paste), breast milk, RX for yeast infections, and RX for topical bacterial infection, the rash continued to get worse. By 16 months (yes we battled diaper rash for 4 months), he literally had a giant, rectangular hive wherever his bottom would contact the diaper. I threw in the towel and switched to cloth, and Voila! The rash was gone within a day!
Well I am not one to tote a soiled cloth diaper in my purse when out and about, so I began to look into the "natural" disposable options. Earth's Best, Nature Babycare, 7th Gen...you name them, I tried them. And my boy's bottom blew up in hives every time. I finally tried Tushies, the only diaper that claims to be gel-free, and guess what? NO RASH! I'm still trying to figure out how to contact the Tushies folks to give them a piece of my mind for going out of business.
Anyhow, onto the review. Broody Chick claims to contain only "Plant-based SAP's" as opposed to Petroleum-based SAP's. How do we know what the difference is? Who knows, only I can tell you that they caused diaper rash on my son just the same.Read more ›
Why doesn't Amazon offer them in cases with the 15%-30% discount?
Who of us can compost our diapers? Maybe very few; but 100% biodegradable has still got to be way better than even Nature Babycare's, which are only 60% biodegradable, and the rest of the "eco-friendly" diapers, who can only claim that they don't put dioxins into the environment (not biodegradable at all!).
Not only that, these diapers fit well; I can use them on my pudgy 1 year old or as a night diaper on my very skinny 5 year old (both kids weigh almost the same!). They feel sturdy. I have never had a leak.
But they are expensive. Amazon could do an environmentally friendly thing by offering the 15-30% discount on them by offering them as subscribe&save products.
Whatever, I cannot think of anything I don't like about these diapers.
One of the most environmentally unfriendly things one can do is to have a baby. But besides that non-starter for us, and faced with the hassle of cloth diapers, these were a perfect compromise. Personally, I could not live with myself for contributing so much environmentally-detrimental diapers to a landfill -- diapers that stay intact for 500 years or more! These diapers are compostable and have natural components (or as natural as one can make them while still retaining essential usefulness properties). They cost a little more -- but by God -- is it really worth it if those diapers in the landfill are still around when your grandkids' grandkids are long gone?!?
The only small negative I could determine was that they are a little too big for a newborn, and we ended up using Pampers for the first 3 weeks or so. :( In retrospect, we probably should have used cloth diapers for the first few weeks.

We love these diapers. They work quite well and are fully compostable. Generally we don't use them at night but definitely great for the day. Wish they were easier to find.Published on June 1, 2014 by ladyhauwke
We love these diapers, but they are pretty pricey, hence 4 out of 5 stars. Very eco friendly though, and quality construction! Read morePublished on March 10, 2014 by Amber S.
