And the winners are:
Bambo Nature took home the prize for Editors’ Choice award, and it had the highest overall score in testing. Speaking about Bambo, BabyGearLab founder, Dr. Juliet Spurrier said, “It simply out performs all the other diapers in our review. It outscored its closest competitor by 15 points, which made it an obvious award winner.” Dr. Spurrier went on to say, “With significant eco-health attributes, in addition to the great performance and comfort, this diaper has become my disposable of choice.”
Best Value for Green Disposable went to Earth’s Best TenderCare Chlorine Free diapers. Pediatrician Juliet Spurrier, of BabyGearLab.com, stated that, “We continue to be pleased with the Earth’s Best brand. Not only did it earn the highest score for leakage in our tests, but it also provides an eco-friendly option for those who are sensitive to the environment and buying on a budget. You don’t have to sacrifice quality or performance for a good price.”
Best Value Award for Traditional Diapers went to Cuties brand. “With a better price than many popular traditional diapers,” Dr. Spurrier said, “Cuties still outperformed all the Huggies varieties we tested, and several of the more expensive diapers in our review. Cuties came in ninth place overall with a price below the popular name brands and some store brand offerings; including Costco’s Kirkland Signature, Babies R Us, and Walmart’s Parent’s Choice. We were really impressed with the overall comfort and quality feel of this budget friendly diaper.”
Testing was conducted in a lab setting that performed identical tests on each product side-by-side for comparison value and ensured continuity. Test were designed to measure how well each product performed in a controlled environment. Tests included those for absorbency and leakage, two of the most important factors in a diaper, and others for comfort/fit, durability, and a review of eco-health attributes according to the available manufacturer information. Products were also used on in-house testers whose parents provided quality feedback and opinions on each product based on day-to-day personal experience.
