When I became pregnant with my first son 5 years ago I was endlessly trying to catch all the unsolicited mothering advice being thrown my way. EVERYONE was a professional mom and/or dad all of a sudden. They knew the best everything (in their opinion). So I did what any nervous first time mom would do and went into debt buying just about every newborn “necessity” on the market. Including diapers. This time around, however, there are new all natural diaper options that weren’t available before. Needless to say I was very excited to be able to test and review BabyGanics‘ Rear Gear Ultra Absorbent diapers.
The launch of Rear Gear Ultra Absorbent Diapers offers consumers the first diapers to truly be baby-friendly, parent-friendly and eco-friendly. Made with an exclusive blend of superior seed oils known as the NeoNourish ComplexTM, babies’ skin will be nourished and moisturized by a diaper that provides a premium comfort and fit as well as effective leak control. Pair this with the fact that the diapers are made from bio-based materials, and contain no harsh chemicals, chlorine, latex, petroleum-based lotions or fragrance; and you are left with a product that offers more than any other diaper on the market today.
The Rear Gear™ Ultra-Absorbent Diapers by BabyGanics features:
Superior absorbency & premium leak control. Plus, disappearing wetness indicator (sizes Newborn – 2)
Stretchy, breathable sides & re-fastenable tabs for a comfy, flexible fit
NeoNourish Complex™ nurtures & supports baby’s skin
Made with Chlorine Free, bio-based materials. NO latex, toxins, petroleum based lotions or fragrance
When it came time to test these diapers out I was nervous. To be blunt, my 3 month old son has an uncanny ability to, um, produce mass quantities of breastfed poo with a force unnatural for a wee little dude. I assume most parents will understand what I mean when I use the term blowout? Because that is exactly what happens in nearly every other diaper. I’m talking up the back, throw the onesie away type blowout. It’s ridiculous. So I have become quite particular about the brand of diaper, the size, the way it is put on, with what amount of tape to wrap around the diaper so it doesn’t leak. You know, the usual. But I threw caution to the wind and tested these diapers out for a few days. The first thing I noticed is how incredibly soft they are. ”Oh dear this is not good”, said my nervous internal voice. So then after I was done petting my face with the soft diaper (what?!) I put it up to my nose and inhaled. Absolutely no odor. No overwhelming powder scent. No chemical scent. Off to a great start! I then pulled out one of my diapers to compare the two visually.
BabyGanics on the left and my other brand on the right. Both are size 1. BabyGanics has gathering around the waist both front and back which I absolutely love. They are a very giving 1, if that makes sense. Giving yet snug. At the time of this test I had actually started buying 2′s for little dude just to try to keep the poo in the diaper. BabyGanics’ Rear Gear Ultra Absorbent Diapers fit him the way I think a 1 should fit. I was able to get them up and around his chubby legs with ease and cinched them up nicely around his waist thanks to the stretchy top. They have a velcro like top which is really nice because I have to adjust the fit no less than 10 times each diaper due to the fact that he never. stops. moving.
I would like to mention is that my little dude has extremely sensitive skin. He has had diaper rash most days of his little life. I have my theories regarding certain brands of diapers and what they are made of that makes his rash worse. BabyGanics diapers didn’t magically cure his ongoing rash but by the time I was out of diapers his bum looked much better than it had in a very long time. The diaper caused absolutely no irritation anywhere and did not cause any additional rash.
I am also very excited to tell you that we had zero leaks and not one blowout. Pair that with the fact that these diapers are Eco-Friendly, I am sold.
I am so happy I was given the opportunity to review these diapers because I probably never would have given these a chance, otherwise. I, like so many others, fall into the land of sticking to what I know when it comes to diapers. If there is one thing you get from this review, tired parent, I hope you are given the confidence to branch out and try BabyGanics‘ Rear Gear Ultra Absorbent Diaper. I, for one, am thrilled to be making the switch.
