My husband came home with a box of Hello Bello diapers, and I’m excited for Nicholas to try them. We usually use Honest diapers, but because they’re more expensive I’ve been looking forward to trying Hello Bello.
When Lucy was born I didn’t think twice about the ingredients in diapers, which is ironic because I researched everything else to death – organic crib mattresses, activity mats without flame retardants, etc.
That quickly changed when my 1 week old had chemical burns from the very popular branded diaper she was wearing.
I learned there are potentially harmful ingredients in diapers. We started to use diapers with safer ingredients and chose to cloth diaper part-time to offset the higher cost.
Hello Bello Diapers – First Impression
Lucy actually demanded we open up the box first so she can take a peek at Nicky’s new diapers. My first remark was how adorable the designs are – tools and lightening bolts.
Even more impressive, Hello Bello diapers are incredibly soft. Any mom that uses organic diapers knows that they’re usually somewhat stiff, so this really made me happy.
A wetness indicator! These have a wetness indicator, which I love because it’s super helpful. (Also, nursing moms of newborns can really rely on the wetness indicator to make sure you’re little one is having wet diapers).
The Overnight Test
We moms know the true marker of a quality diaper is how absorbent it is, which leads me to the overnight test.
Nicholas drinks one 8 ounce bottle before bed and then usually drinks about 4 ounces in the middle of the night.
I’m happy to say that so far we have passed the overnight test with no leaks!
Hello Bello vs Honest Diapers
So what’s the conclusion? How do I compare these with Honest diapers?
When I was preparing spaces for both of my little ones, I remember searching for baby closet organization ideas. I literally attempted to try them all. Many things did not stick, but a few things became essential to maintain for my own sanity.
My oldest is 3.5 years old and I still apply these baby closet organization ideas to her “big girl” closet, because it’s a seamless system that helps us stay organized — or should I say, as much as possible!
Preparing a nursery is such a precious experience in life. Typically once nesting sets in, a mom will want to organize everything in the home and of course that means the nursery as well. Here are 10 clever nursery organization ideas that will help you find a place for everything.
