I feel like I’m the only one still struggling to potty train my 2 year old. Surely, I’m not alone, but it really does feel like I am. I think many parents have their toddler potty trained by 18 months, and here I am still struggling. So, Nathan is still wearing diapers, but once he hits 3 years old, we’re really down to the nitty gritty.
The only other eco-friendly diapers we have used are from Honest Co, but we’ve been using Huggies Diapers for 2 years now. So, when Nathan received Bambo Nature diapers to test out, I was quite excited! (Funny how small things like new diapers get moms excited)
What I was most excited about was what the company claims the diapers to be. Bambo Nature claims that their diapers contains:
- No latex or chlorine
- No phthalates & PVC
- No heavy metals & chlorine
- No carcinogens or formaldehydes
- No lotions/moisturizers
- No chemical odor inhibitors
And much more.. Compared to other leading eco-friendly disposable diapers, Bambo Nature has earned the Nordic Swan ecolabel, which is one of the strictest accreditation in the world. Also, it’s the only “green” diaper that has a wetness indicator, according to Baby Gear Lab.

So is Bambo Nature M.O.M. Approved? YES! Do I recommend it? YES!
- It’s super absorbent. Out of the entire week and a half, we only had ONE leak. That was my fault, I forgot to change him before we went on a long car-ride.
- No BLOWOUTS! None! Which is fantastic!
- Nathan never complained or tried tugging off the diaper. Which he tends to do with other leading non-eco-friendly diaper brands.
- Nathan was able to move around freely without the diaper irritating his skin. He tends to sweat a lot when he’s active.
- Contains less SAP (the gel-like substance in diapers) than other leading green diapers.
- Simple and cute design and relatively thin, but still very soft.
- Great quality. Unlike other brands, Bambo doesn’t make Nathan feel as if he’s wearing just a rough paper towel.
- 80% biodegradable
- Breathable and kept skin dry
The only downside of Bambo Nature diapers are:
- A little expensive, but you’re paying for quality
- Not easy to find at major retail stores
The pros definitely outweigh the cons. I highly recommend them to friends and family. I am definitely purchasing more. If you’re a cloth diapering mama, this is a great alternative when you want to use disposable diapers part-time, or when you’re traveling.
