4 Mom Tested Eco-Friendly Diapers

Earth's Best TenderCare

CHLORINE FREE DISPOSABLE

$12.33 for 40; earthsbest.com

RAVE: "They are super absorbent, even overnight. And the fact that they're processed without chlorine is important to me."

-- Amanda, mom of James, 11 months

AND KEEP IN MIND... Moms loved the secure fit, the easy-to-fasten tabs, and the thinness; others noted that they were "papery" and made an annoying crinkly sound.

Kushies Ultra-Lite

ALL-IN-ONE WASHABLE CLOTH

$12.49 each; kushiesonline.com

RAVE: "These stay on well and fit snugly around the waist and legs. They're also great on the go -- they wrap up nicely for storage in my diaper bag."

-- Alexandra, mom of Morgan, 6 months

AND KEEP IN MIND... You've gotta be on top of your laundry with cloth, especially if you own a limited number. Some moms thought the patterns were quirky but still pretty cute on a baby's tush.

gDiapers

FLUSHABLE INSERTS WITH CLOTH COVERS

$29.99 for a starter kit; gDiapers.com

RAVE: "I wish it were summer so my daughter could run around in nothing but her gDiapers -- they're that adorable! I love the option of a cloth insert or the one that's flushable and biodegradable."

-- Nicole, mom of Lillith, 13 months

AND KEEP IN MIND... This hybrid isn't as easy as a disposable, but it's less work than cloth. Plus, moms raved about the bright colors, ruffles, and goofy names (Golly Molly Pink, Grateful Red).

Seventh Generation

CHLORINE FREE DISPOSABLE

$13 for 44; theconsumerlink.com

RAVE: "They really hold a lot and they fit my daughter well. I also love the slim profile they give her (no big ol' saggy bottom hanging out)."

-- Angie, mom of Rosabelle, 12 months

AND KEEP IN MIND... One tot stayed dry all night even when she slept late, but some moms said the tan color makes it hard to see the poop.
