Comparing Earth's Best with 7th Gen and Nature BabycareJun 24, 2009
By D. Freiberg
This review compares Earth's Best with 7th Generation and Nature Babycare diapers. I have 3 kids, and before my last child there weren't many options for environmentally-friendlier diapers besides 7th Generation. My daughter and first son started in cloth and moved to 7th Generation exclusively. So when my son was born in May, I thought I'd try some others and see what I came up with. I did not test Natural Choice because we could only buy online and didn't want to buy a case just to try it out, especially when we found a solid performer at a lower price with Earth's Best.
For the short version, performance/preference differed by size: For newborn diapers, Earth's Best was heads and shoulders above 7th Generation (Nature Babycare doesn't come in NB size). For size 1, Earth's Best was still on top, with Nature Babycare and 7th Generation tying for second, though I'd give Nature Babycare an edge for environmental friendliness. I have not tested Nature Babycare above Size 1, and have not yet tested Earth's Best in Sizes 2 & 3. 7th Generation performed adequately in those sizes. For Size 4 & 5, 7th Generation and Earth's Best were much closer, with Earth's Best being slightly more absorbent.
Overall, we have been very happy with 7th Generation over the years, so these new diapers were a pleasant surprise. 7th Gen is not flashy, definitely more stiff than mainline diapers, but the kids were comfy, never had diaper rash due to the diaper, and the diapers were pretty absorbent with very few leaks. However, we often had runs of overnight leaks that seemed unrelated to needing to move up a size, and we have had to move up a size much earlier than the package would indicate by weight (this happened with our son in particular, and he is pretty skinny).
For Newborn diapers, I highly recommend Earth's Best over 7th Gen. The Earth's Best diapers had a stay-dry liner, great fit for a newborn, and were much softer, than 7th Gen, which for a newborn is much more important than a toddler! Most importantly, they were super absorbent. Now, I have to say that for first-time parents I'm sure 7th Gen is fine, but by the third kid I know I didn't change my son as often as I should (tysk, tysk), at least at first when I was trying to adjust to 3 kids! The Earth's Best diapers NEVER leaked, and kept my son dry due to the great liner. The 7th Gen NB diapers were a distant 2nd. I don't know how absorbent they truly are, because they leaked almost immediately due to poor fit. First off, they were bigger than Earth's Best NB diapers in size. They also were more stiff, which meant it was much harder to both tuck in the flap for the cord in the beginning, and it was hard to get them tight so there was no gaping on the top...so the pee just leaked out the top half the time. I should note that I also got some NB Huggies from a neighbor and they were the worst of the 3 - they were soft but small, and held very little urine before leaking. Also, the gel or whatever was sort of cold, so the diaper always felt wet on the outside when it was wet on the inside.
For Size 1, Earth's Best is still the winner, but 7th Gen and Nature Babycare were a lot closer. For some reason Earth's Best only has the stay-dry liner in the NB diaper, but it still seemed that the inside of the Earth's Best diaper was softer and drier than the 7th Gen. Earth's Best and Nature Babycare excelled at absorbency, 7th Gen. was sufficient but not quite as good. All 3 diapers fit well. Earth's Best is by far the softest; 7th Gen slightly less, and Nature Babycare feels like the paper towels you get in a public restroom - not something I'd want to wear, but baby didn't seem to mind too much. Nature Babycare would probably rank second because of absorbency and it is more environmentally friendly than the other two, but gets low points for softness and because the tabs don't stick anywhere on the diaper other than the front - so you can't roll it a ball as easily for disposal (you can roll it and secure one tab to the back of the other, it's just a little trickier). 7th Generation a close third - it doesn't have the drawbacks of Nature Babycare, but it is not quite as absorbent, either.
For Size 4 & up, I'd give Earth's Best a slight edge, only because of overnight absorbency. I actually like that 7th Gen is more stiff for a toddler; the Earth's Best side panels are very soft and stretchy but I feel like that makes them sort of flimsy. However, we always used 7th Gen for our toddlers, never mainline brands - I think if you were switching from Huggies or Pampers that might not even occur to you because it seems like those have really stretchy side panels too. I've never had a 7th Generation leak during the day, but more than occasionally at night, and since we don't really want to buy two sets of diapers, we're switching to Earth's Best for our older son (he's 21 months). A note on shape - the Earth's Best were longer and narrower than 7th Gen at this size, which works well for our skinny son but may not be for everyone.
One final note on 7th Generation quality control. Twice my husband found we were shorted diapers in the package, so now we count the diapers every time. Contacted the company and they sent us coupons for diapers and other products along with an apology. Also, occasionally we've gotten a string of diapers with the tabs attached poorly so they rip off entirely when you open them - very annoying and sometimes not salvageable. We have used these diapers pretty much constantly for 3 years though (none of these problems in the past 6 months, it may have improved), so I have no idea whether the quality control of other products is any better.

Make a hybrid of these with Huggies Pure and Natural: PerfectionMay 14, 2010
By C. Mouser
I have been dedicated to Huggies Pure and Natural because they are THE softest, BEST absorbing, and cute. One day the store was out so I tried Earth's Best. Here is what I found:
PROS: Chlorine free so better for baby and environment.
Absorbent-leaks haven't been a problem.
No prints on tushy so it doesn't look tacky under white bloomers.
Doesn't stink half as bad after being dirtied. I attribute this to being chlorine free because 7th
generation diapers are the same way.
CONS: Doesn't wick moisture away from skin as well as Huggies.
Not as soft and comfy as Huggies.
Hideous print on waistband-I'd rather it not have any print at all but, really, could they have
picked anything uglier?
There is too much material between the legs so it seems to hinder movement.
If Huggies Pure and Natural were chlorine free, they would be the best diaper ever made. So here I am torn between the two brands. When the diaper pail is full of Huggies, the whole room smells like pee. When it is full of Earth's Best, there is no smell. That is a HUGE pro even though it fails in every other aspect. So, I'm going to petition Huggies. But if you are hooked on chlorine free, then these are WAY better than Seventh Generation which are ugly, crunchy, leaky, and don't wick moisture at all.

"Mama,baby itch!" - my 21 month oldAug 08, 2009
By J. Kellerman
I usually use 7th Generation diapers by Amazon subscription, but due to a credit card expiration date mishap, I found myself running out to the store for diapers. I found Earth's Best and decided to try them. The first day my 21 mo daughter told me "baby itch" and kept scratching her back at the diaper waistline which became red/irritated, I thought little of it and sprayed a water & tee tree oil spritz for the itching. The next day I used 7th Gen diapers that still happened to be in my diaperbag. On day three, I used Earth's Best and my daughter again scratching her back told me "baby itch", I re-read the package which states hypoallergenic latex free chlorine free...etc. So I wondered how this could be. Then I did a deliberate test, each time I switched to Earth's Best, my daughter reacted. Perhaps it's just the way the diaper is cut and the edges from the sections where the sides meet the back bother her, but nonetheless... I am back to using only 7th Gen. and we are both happy. Other than that, they performed similarly, (we never have leaks/blowouts, not since infancy), I loved the bright white color versus 7th G's tan color, but her skin irritation was a dealbreaker. (She's 32" tall and 25 lbs... in case size is a consideration).

Absolutely Wonderful Diaper!Mar 13, 2011
We switched to these from Seventh Generation so I'll compare the two.
Our daughter has eczema so her skin is sensitive to any perfumes or dyes that are in regular diapers. After months of her flaring in her private area we decided to make the switch to a more environmentally and health friendly diaper. We found Seventh Generation and Earth's best to be the next best thing to cloth diapering.
Size - 3 Diapers
Seventh Generation - these run on the small side. Our daughter is between 19-22 lbs and the diapers were a snug fit. Not too tight but definitely would not have held her until a 28lbs which is what the packaging says.
Earth's Best - generously sized with room to grow. These fit her perfectly and were not too loose or tight. I am certain they will carry her to the 28lbs mark with no leaks or issues.
Look - Seventh Gen are brown. Not ugly and not cute. But they are a diaper! Earth's best have a cute little design on the front.
Feel - I found them both to feel the same. They are soft enough without being stiff. The Seven. Gen diapers do seem to have less give but that doesn't affect their performance. My daughter had no marks or issues from either brand of diaper.
Absorbency - Seventh Gen. diapers bulk up when urinated in. Sort of lumpy is the best way to describe it. It was difficult to tell sometimes if she was wet or the diaper contents had shifted which in many of them it did. We did the squishy test with Earth's best and it was obvious when DD had urinated. We used both overnight with a tummy sleeper with no leaks.
Tabs - Seven. Gen tabs are so difficult to disattach! Sometimes they pop off or arent attached securely. Earth's Best provides long tabs that stretch and have adequate adhesive.
Overall I love E.B. diapers and they will be our choice!

Well intentioned but not worth it...Aug 30, 2011
I bought these thinking it was a better decision health wise and environmentally for our baby. After two days she had the WORST rash ever, and I found they absorbed a lot more poorly than Huggies, which is the brand we usually use. We went through these diapers twice as fast (they're definitely not cheap either) and she had very irritated skin the entire time. Either she was reacting to the diapers themselves, or they don't keep her dry enough to prevent rash. Either way, it wasn't worth the extra expense, the extra laundry from practically constant leaks/blowouts, and it definitely wasn't worth the skin irritation. We switched back to Huggies and her skin cleared up, and they've always been reliable in the leak-free department. I'm glad we tried these, just because there's such hype about 'better diapers', but honestly I've done cloth diapers and they are less hassle than these were. Oh, and I've got 6 kids, so I'm not exactly new to the diapering arena LOL.
