When it comes to choosing the “right” diaper, parents are too often forced to compromise. Cloth diapering doesn’t fit into parents’ busy schedules, and natural diapers tout “non-toxic” benefits but aren’t as natural as they appear and tend to have worse performance against leaks. Researching which brand of diaper to buy for your baby can quickly become overwhelming and disappointing. That’s why we were so excited to learn about Kudos, a female-founded and led brand that makes the diaper decision easy and stress-free for new parents by offering a choice they can feel confident is “the best of all worlds.”
Here are 5 things we love about Kudos (that we know you’ll love, too!):
They’re 100% cotton.
Babies’ skin is more sensitive and prone to irritation and rash than adult skin. Kudos are the only disposable diaper to have earned the cotton natural seal from Cotton Inc. for having baby’s skin touching 100% cotton all day instead of plastic. Cotton is hypoallergenic and the #1 doctor-recommended material for those suffering from rash and eczema. Plastic, on the other hand, is fossil-fuel-derived and can contain harmful VOCs and phthalates that can be absorbed through the skin and disrupt endocrine systems. Kudos diapers are made without chlorine, latex, parabens, lotions, fragrances, or phthalates.
Kudos are made with 4x more plant-based components than traditional disposable diapers. The TruCotton® used in Kudos diapers is naturally soft, carbon-negative, US-sourced, and cleaned with a breakthrough dry process that utilizes zero water, chemicals, or process heat. If all diapers were made the way Kudos makes their diapers, they say that 500 million pounds of plastic would be replaced with clean, unbleached, natural cotton, and 2 billion pounds of fossil fuel-derived diaper materials would be sourced from renewable materials annually.
They do their job.
In addition to creating a diaper that is safe on baby’s skin and sustainable, Kudos has crafted a product that does the job it was made to do – and does it well. Kudos’ team of MIT and former Pampers’ engineers developed their patent-pending DoubleDry tech with two absorption layers instead of the traditional one to funnel moisture away from your baby’s bottom as quickly as possible, keeping your baby dry and preventing leaks. Layered above the diaper’s absorbent core is a first layer made from sugarcane and a second layer made from cornstarch.
They grow with your baby.
Kudos diapers come in 6 sizes that quite literally grow with your baby, from 8 pounds to over 35, and the diaper quantity in each box is adjusted based on diaper size because as babies grow, fewer diapers are used each day. Kudos’ diaper patterns were crafted with your baby’s mental growth in mind, too. Each size offers with it unique print options designed to stimulate the ways in which your baby is interacting with the world around them. Kudos prints are designed to capture your baby’s attention while complementing each cognitive developmental stage.
They deliver monthly.
It’s busy work taking care of a baby, and while diapers are a must-have, it’s easy to get caught up in the overwhelm of new parent life and find that you’ve suddenly run out of diapers when you need one most. Kudos’ monthly subscription option ensures that you’ll always have diapers at the ready, delivered conveniently to your home. Starting at only $78 per month, with free shipping included, it’s a no-brainer to opt out of frequent drives to the store to replenish your diaper stock in favor of letting Kudos take care of that one task on your never-ending parent to-do list.
