Whether you are a strict adherent to the practice of cloth diapering or you haven't quite figured it out yet, there are times when a disposable diaper is simply what you must have. No surprise, disposables are fraught with chemicals and materials that are not only harmful to the environment, they can be very unfriendly to your baby's tender skin. We've picked out a few options that you can feel better about while you navigate the world of baby bums!

Poof

After changing the diapers of five children, Poof Diapers founder, Debra Lee had an epiphany: a diaper did not need to last 500+ years but rather only hours *mic drop*. Her revelation led to the creation of a disposable diaper with minimal environmental impact and fewer chemicals against baby’s skin. Made from non-GMO corn, bamboo, chlorine-free wood pulp and printed with soy-based inks, these babies are also free from fragrances, lotions, and surfactants and bear the Oeko-tex Standard 100 Confidence in Textiles certification.
