Seventh Generation Free & Clear Diapers Review and Giveaway!

Oh wow, I can't tell you how much time I spend obsessing over diapers. It started out when my daughter was first born and I researched until I was blue in the face to find out what the best diapers were. I wanted to be sure that I covered all the major bases... that they were gentle on my daughter's skin and prevented diaper rash (as much as is humanly possible), that they prevented leaks (as much as is possible... haha!), and that they didn't break the bank - because let's face it... we are going to be buying a lot of diapers!

Well, for all you moms out there on this hunt to find a great diaper... let me share my thoughts about Seventh Generation's newly re-launched free and clear diapers!


With the same great performance that parents have come to expect from Seventh Generation, Free & Clear diapers have a brand new look that makes it `clear´ what makes them so special. 

What Seventh Generation leaves out is just as important as what they put in. Free & Clear diapers do not include chlorine processing, fragrances, latex and petroleum based lotions. In an effort to contribute less overall landfill waste and continue to ensure a premium standard of absorbency, the new Free & Clear diapers have been redesigned with a lighter-weight core. With processed chlorine-free wood pulp in Free & Clear diapers, Seventh Generation also makes certain that no chlorine is released into the environment during the totally chlorine-free (TCF) whitening process of the diapers and training pants. 

Seventh Generation has also reduced the size of the diapers´ plastic packaging, meaning that each pack now contributes even less overall landfill waste than before. In fact, Seventh Generation Free & Clear diaper packaging can now be recycled at local supermarkets where plastic bag recycling collection boxes are available. 

I absolutely love that these diapers are completely free and clear. I have learned over the last 2 years that my daughter has pretty tough skin, but I still prefer anything that is free of unnecessary fragrances, chlorine, or other chemicals. I also love how environmentally friendly Seventh Generation is. They take extra steps to be sure that their products and packaging cause as little damage as possible to our landfills. I can only imagine the number of diapers in our landfills... ahhh!

I was also pleased with the performance of the diapers. My daughter is very active and I need a diaper that can stay in place and absorb well. I feel like these diapers do that. They aren't as cute to look at as some other brands because they are very plain in design. But really, they're diapers... they don't need to be cute! And the color of the diaper takes a little getting used to. Since they're not white I thought they looked a little dirty at first. But you get used to it and know they aren't white for a good reason.


You can find Seventh Generation diapers in your local food store and at major retailers. You can also find them online at Amazon. The diapers are available in sizes 2-6.

I love that they are fragrance free. My son has very sensitive skin and these do a great job of not leaking AND not irritating his skin.

I love that their free of chlorine and unnecessary fragrances. My son seems to be sensitive to different things. There's certain diapers he can't use because I can almost guarantee he'll get a rash if he does.
