A long while back (I think I was actually still in my first trimester) I purchased a coupon from Zulily for a month's supply of diapers (the diapers bundle) from Honest for half-price. Honest is a company co-founded by Jessica Alba that strives to provide non-toxic, ecofriendly and affordable disposable diapers. They have a diaper delivery service where you are mailed a month's supply of diapers (and wipes!) for just shy of $80/month. When we got the coupon, Jon actually did a bunch of research about big stores such as Target, Walmart, and even Costco/Sam's Club to see if the diapers were a good deal. The short of it is: they are. For a month's supply of diapers and wipes, you pay less by shopping through Honest than you would at a big box store like Target. Furthermore, given their sustainable and natural ingredients, I genuinely believe Honest is a great option for a health- and environment-conscience family who doesn't want to tackle cloth diapering.

Elden inherited my extremely sensitive skin. He got a pretty rough diaper rash within his first few weeks of life thanks to the baby wipes we had been using at the time. When we have him at home, we actually just use a damp washcloth to wipe him. However, we can't ask his daycare to do that so we've been sending the Honest wipes in with him instead of letting them use what they have on hand. He has yet to develop any type of irritation from these wipes--a huge step up compared to what we used at home those first few weeks. Moreover, their diaper designs are adorable and the fact that the diapers are delivered to your door each month (automatically at that) is super convenient. I highly recommend Honest diapers if you aren't cloth diapering.

Note: Honest didn't endorse this post in any way--I'm writing this because I genuinely love their products (although full disclosure: if you do click that first Honest link above and ultimately purchase any items, I will receive a $10 credit). I recently purchased their dishwasher detergent, dryer sheets, and laundry detergent to give a try. We used a dryer sheet yesterday and our clothes were definitely soft with no artificial scent. I'll update about the other products as I use them.

  1. Wow! I hadn't heard about this company but am definitely intrigued. We're doing disposable diapers now and plan to switch over to cloth around 3 months. We were generously handed down some cloth diapers from friends, but at this point I'm not 100% sure this will be the best option for us. This info is good to know. Thanks!
