Review & Giveaway: Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers

I want my son potty-trained. I'm tired of buying diapers! Not to mention, he's getting older, has sensitive skin and sometimes those big ole diapers full of yucky stuff isn't all that great to his skin! However, if I still must use diapers I would like to use something that is good for him and the environment. So I was thrilled to try out Seventh Generation's new and improved Free & Clear diapers. I already love their cleaning products so why not add diapers to my list.

 First, here's little bit about the diapers in case you aren't familiar with them:

What Seventh Generation leaves out is just as important as what they put in. Free & Clear diapers do not include chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum based lotions. In an effort to contribute less overall landfill waste and continue to ensure a premium standard of absorbency, the new Free & Clear diapers have been redesigned with a lighter-weight core. With processed chlorine-free wood pulp in Free & Clear diapers, Seventh Generation also makes certain that no chlorine is released into the environment during the totally chlorine-free (TCF) whitening process of the diapers and training pants.

Seventh Generation has also reduced the size of the diapers’ plastic packaging, meaning that each pack now contributes even less overall landfill waste than before. In fact, Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available. 


My Take: This is the second time I've tried these diapers and I must say I still like them. They are absolutely free and clear, they are even the color of a recycled paper bag, which wasn't a big hit with my son who loves all the cute, printed diapers with Mickey Mouse and other characters. However, mommy doesn't care either way. The diapers also seem to hold just as much as the other diapers I use. That's a relief because I was worried about leakage. (yes, I know...the little man needs to be potty trained). There was one thing I didn't like. It was simply the placement of the sticky tabs/straps...whatever you call them. On most diapers it's on the side, so you can lie your kiddo down and still be able to easily access them. On the Seventh Generation diapers they are stuck to the back. I had to make my kiddo roll to the side so I could pull it off, then roll him back, and then close up the diaper. It was a little bit of a hassle but it seems like it could be a quick fix if enough people are picky like me...hehehe. Overall, they are a great diaper!

Buy It: These seventh Generation Free & Clear diapers can be purchased from grocery stores, Target and other fine retailers. As a matter of fact if you would like to try them out I have a link to a $2 OFF any ONE Seventh Generation Baby Product (Diapers, Training Pants, or Wipes)! Just click HERE to download yours.

It is open to the US only. The winner will be chosen via random.org and notified by email. They will then have 48 hours to respond before another winner is chosen. Good Luck!
