Seventh Generation "Lorax Approved" Diapers


Tomorrow is Dr. Seuss' birthday! Bekah has really been enjoying his books lately (although she calls them all "Cat in the Hat" books instead of Dr. Seuss books... oh well).

Recently I was excited to receive a package of Seventh Generation's Free & Clear Size 3 diapers (for Sofie) and a copy of Dr. Seuss' book "The Lorax" (for Bekah). Having never read the book or used the diapers, this was a great package to get on our doorstep :)

In partnership with Universal Studios’ motion picture debut of Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax also known as the “Speaker for the Trees” who brings environmental truth and ecological hope to all, Seventh Generation will feature limited edition Lorax prints on all our diapers and training pants. These prints are intended to remind parents and caregivers of the lessons of The Lorax, and encourage family reading and environmental awareness while creating a few smiles. Discover (or rediscover) Dr. Suess’ The Lorax as you read about his legacy and messages of sustainability with your child, and inspire a new generation of environmentalists starting with your family!

Typically we use cloth diapers during the day when we're home and healthy and Pampers Swaddlers at night (until they're too small... then we switch to Huggies). I've never purchased Seventh Generation products and was curious to see how these diapers compare to my favorite Swaddlers.

Although they're not-bleached (so they look "grungy" compared to the stark white pampers), they are cute. Bekah's rather jealous that Sofie gets the Lorax on her diapers and she doesn't!

Some information about these diapers from Seventh Generation:
*NEW Overnight Diapers are absorbent enough to keep your baby and bedding dry through the night or during prolonged travel
*Free & Clear diapers have improved more flexible tabs that provide even better fit
*Free & Clear training pants have an absorbent core made with more renewable, plant-based materials. They also feature stretchy, tear away side panels for a better fit and added convenience, as well as inner leak barriers for superior leakage protection
*Seventh Generation Free & Clear baby care products do not contain chlorine, fragrance, petroleum-based lotions or latex, and all Free & Clear products are also hypo-allergenic
*Starting March 2, you can register for a free The Lorax scrapbook with the purchase of any three Free & Clear diaper products, until supplies last

All in all these diapers hold up REALLY well, are QUITE flexible and I haven't had a leak yet! I would probably purchase them again when I'm in need of disposable diapers!!!

Definitely interested in trying these diapers too!! I try to use the g diapers (g for green) they come in both cloth and disposable inserts, but not only are they not saving me money they aren't very easy to clean. So I use pampers when it's convenient but agree with you that they are crazy white and I can't stand the overpowering powder smell! What smell are they truong to cover up?! So I'm very interested in trying a different diaper that is easy to use, safer for the environment, and not to mention cute! :)

I would be interested in trying either of their stain removers, but I don't think I will unless I find a coupon! I'm the worst at getting stains out, though!

I'd like to try out their diapers. We use cloth during the day and sposies at night, too, because otherwise my girls usually wake up soaking wet. Another alternative that works well and is eco-friendly would be great!
