Best of Baby Winner for Top Diaper
The first job of a diaper is to catch and successfully contain baby’s messes—but given that baby’s skin is so delicate and sensitive, you also want to wrap your little one’s tush in a diaper that’s free of any harsh chemicals and irritating materials. After all, diapers are a baby’s constant accessory. Not only are Coterie diapers super-absorbent and reliably leak-proof, but the list of materials they leave out of their diaper construction is just as impressive as what they put in. They’re far from the cheapest option out there, but they’re worth it. Seriously, we’ve never come across a diaper this pillowy soft (and we’ve seen a whole lot of diapers in our day).
• You’ll have zero qualms about putting this unbelievably soft diaper on baby, the core of which is made from chlorine-free wood pulp from sustainably managed forests
• The diaper is free of parabens, phthalates, VOCs, chlorine bleaching, heavy metals, dyes, fragrances, alcohol, lotion, latex, rubber, optical brighteners and animal testing
• Not only is the feel and material list impressive, but its effectiveness is top-notch: It holds 25 times its weight in fluid and wicks moisture away from baby’s skin in 16 seconds, and leaks and blowouts are limited by the snug, flexible fit
• Coterie is committed to sustainability; since no disposable diaper is 100 percent biodegradable, the brand donates a portion of proceeds to Diaper Recycling Technology, which has pioneered technology to reuse 95 percent of diaper materials; they also partner with the nonprofit Baby2Baby to give unused, returned diapers to those in need so no diaper goes to waste
