Of course we all want diapers that are absorbent and comfortable for our babies. But these days, if you look at what’s poking out of a baby’s waistband, you’re likely to see a disposable diaper in a fun pattern that has been made with renewable and sustainable materials.
Parents are demanding diapers made with more natural materials that are less likely to harm their baby and the planet. And parents also know that when you’re changing several of those diapers a day, it helps when they’re also nice to look at, at least on the outside. Here are 4 brands that are changing the diaper game so it’s better for baby and Mother Earth.
Long known for the quality of their diapers, Pampers recently introduced a new, more natural collection of diapers and wipes that retain the company’s signature leakage and dryness protection. Pampers Pure diapers are made with premium cotton and soft, plant-based materials, and without chlorine bleaching, fragrance, latex or parabens. They come in stylish prints and soft colors, with different prints in each size so you don’t accidentally grab a diaper that doesn’t fit (smart!). Look for supercute animals, pastel patterns and our favorite: a fun heart-filled print reading “hi” and “xoxo.”
Available at pampers.com and major retailers.
You probably know Thrive Market for offering healthy food at reasonable prices, featuring organic and natural favorites as well as their house brand. They recently expanded their house brand’s offerings to include diapers that use 30-40% more renewable and sustainable raw materials than leading brands. These diapers are also free of fragrance, latex and chlorine bleach, so there’s less chance of irritation on baby’s skin. The diapers are white, so they’re great under light-colored pants, and they feature a cute and colorful animal-printed band on the front.

The Honest Company
Honest is known for playful on-trend prints that change with the seasons, with spring patterns featuring everything from a flowers and fresh produce to trucks and barnyard animals. The diapers also come in solid white. They’re made with sustainable materials, including fluff pulp harvested from sustainably managed forests, and skip the harsh stuff, like chlorine processing, synthetic fragrances, lotions and latex. Heads up for the West: Costco recently started carrying Honest Diapers in select West Coast locations.

Aden + Anais
We recently told you about the new aden + anais line of disposable diapers and wipes. You already love the patterns on their supersoft swaddles (flowers, whales, stars, giraffes and more). Now they’ve translated those divine prints to diapers that reflect that brand’s focus on superior design and comfort. These designer diapers contain no harsh chemicals, chlorine, fragrances, lotions or latex. The company also plants a tree for every pack of diapers sold.
