There aren’t many things that I am super picky about when it comes to baby products. For the most part, I am happy to use whatever brand is available or most affordable. The exception to this is disposable diapers. Before trying Dewor bamboo diapers, there were only two specific brands/types of disposable diapers that I would use on Aiden because he has very sensitive skin and is prone to diaper rash. When Dewor contacted me and told me about their bamboo disposable diapers I was willing to give them a try. They are eco-friendly bamboo diapers, and after doing some research, I thought they might work for us. I am happy to report that they did and that I would be happy to use Dewor bamboo diapers over traditional disposable diapers after this experience!

When I received Dewor bamboo diapers I was surprised by how soft they are. They almost feel like cloth. They are not heavy or bulky (even when wet) and they have a wetness indicator which some other higher end diapers don’t have. I like that they are plain white — no characters or other designs. We have had no issues with leaking or diaper rash which is most important to me! In addition to the diaper rash, we’ve found that disposable diapers can irritate Aiden’s butt so he scratches at it. Since using Dewor this hasn’t been an issue.
The diapers are designed with a top sheet that absorbs moisture instantly and a breathable back sheet which lets air circulate to leave baby’s skin dry. There is a natural aloe liner to minimize the risk of diaper rash.
While doing some research on bamboo diapers I learned that bamboo is naturally softer and more absorbent than cotton. Bamboo is a renewable resource and it is in the grass family so it grows back quickly. There is no need for pesticides, irrigation, or other chemicals to grow bamboo. These points add to the eco-friendly quality of the diapers.
Dewor bamboo diapers are biodegradable which is a great benefit to helping minimize the impact to the environment (especially considering the number of diapers we take out of this house each week). They also don’t do any animal testing and are currently working on obtaining a Peta Cruelty-Free Certificate. In addition to the advantages to the environment, there are lots of other advantages to using to Dewor diapers — they are:
- Totally free from Chlorine, alcohol or preservatives
- No fragrances or lotions
- Latex free
- No PVC, TBT or antioxidants
- Free of Phthalates
Dewor bamboo diapers are designed in California but manufactured in China. Interestingly the Dewor manufacturing facility is the only plant that produces bamboo diapers in China and they are the only manufacturing facility with FDA and ISO certifications in China.
Another thing I love about Dewor is that you can actually see how the diapers are made and where the materials are sourced on the website. Aiden is in diapers pretty much 24-hours a day so I love knowing exactly what is going on his body.
Dewor bamboo diapers come in three sizes (small, medium, and large — up to 31 lbs.) and are available online on the Dewor website (with free shipping). They are comparable in price to some of the larger brands so I am OK with paying a little more for the benefits they provide. You can save 10% of your Dewor purchase with DEWORBBY10 (through 07/30/2017).
