Bambo Nature Dream Diapers Review
- Bambo Nature Premium Dream Diapers offer an eco-friendly option for earth-conscious parents.
- We love that they’re sustainably made, have a simple design, and are kind to the skin.
- Some reviewers find that these diapers leaked. They didn’t pass our overnight testing.
- Trusted organizations have certified these products to be eco-friendly and skin safe.
- Compared to other sustainable options, Bambo Nature is one of the cheaper choices.
When choosing a diaper, environmental impact is very important to me. Our children will inherit this planet, so we want to ensure it’s well looked after for them!
I’ve heard the scary facts: It takes around 500 years for disposable diapers to decompose. With a new baby, it took me a long time to be able to face the extra effort and laundry of a reusable diaper. There’s also the upfront cost to consider with earth-friendly cloth or reusables.
Bambo Nature is committed to minimal environmental impact. Like most disposable diapers, they do still contain some plastics and are not 100% biodegradable.
Knowing which option strikes the right balance of being effective and kind to the planet can be hard.
Bambo Nature premium dream diapers promise they’re an effective, safe, and sustainable product. I was keen to find out if the extra effort of being eco-friendly sacrificed their performance.
- Bambo Nature is a sustainably manufactured brand in production for more than 35 years! A true legacy brand that you know you can trust in order to #ParentFearlessly.
- Size 4 fits baby weight range 15-31 lbs. See size chart for more details.
- THE BEST COMFORT FIT FOR BABY – our diapers feature a wetness indicator that changes color to indicate when a change is needed. The flexible waistband and latex-free leg cuffs help diapers stay in place while maximizing movement.
- SUPERNATURALLY EFFECTIVE – a unique three-layer design and super-absorbent core that can stand up to multiple wettings—even overnight. Combined with our fully breathable backsheet, baby’s sensitive skin will stay dry and comfortable.
What We Love About Bambo Nature Dream Diapers
There were many features of Bambo Nature diapers that we loved. They’re comfortable and soft for your baby and are kind to both their skin and the planet.
Bambo Nature diapers aim to be sustainable without compromising performance.
The company has received multiple certifications and awards for its eco-credentials, including the rigorous and trusted Nordic Swan Ecolabel.
Bambo Nature is mindful of their environmental impact. They bring sustainable practice into their materials, production, waste, packaging, and distribution. Impressive details include:
- Raw materials are sustainably sourced and don’t contain substances that harm the environment.
- 100% renewable energy is used to manufacture Bambo Nature diapers.
- 95% of production waste is recycled.
- Consumers have the option to purchase these diapers in paper packaging. This packaging is responsibly sourced and fully recyclable.
Bambo Nature products are all dermatologically tested by ProDERM. They’re free from harmful chemicals, dyes, parabens, and allergens.
These diapers did not cause any diaper rashes during our testing and felt super gentle on the skin. Bambo Nature guarantees that their products are skin-safe.
Moisture is quickly absorbed into the diaper to keep your baby’s skin dry and comfortable.
The handy wetness indicator strip goes from yellow (when dry) to blue (when wet). This is a helpful feature to know at a glance if your baby needs a change.
Many brands (like Rascal & Friends) only include wetness indicators in their smaller sizes. This is because the higher volumes of liquid in older babies make it easier to identify when it’s time for a change.
We liked that Bambo Nature Diapers also have a wetness indicator for their larger sizes. This makes it so simple to take a quick peek and know if it’s time for a new diaper.
We loved the minimalist design of these diapers. They’re plain white with a small logo and wetness strip indicator.
This simple design makes it even easier to see the wetness strip and avoids the use of unnecessary dyes.
Comfortable and Flexible
For a mobile baby, you need a diaper that stays in place. It needs to move with your baby and not rub their skin.
Bambo Nature diapers managed to stay in place through crawls and wriggles and left no marks.
Vegan and Cruelty-Free
Bambo Nature doesn’t test their products on animals or use any ingredients from animals. They promise they will never test on animals.
Some reviewers found these diapers leaked for them. We had zero leaks while testing these diapers during the day. This included some big diaper blowouts!
The following features help to prevent leaks:
- Strategically placed leak barriers
- Absorbent core
- Three-layer design
- Flexible side panels for a snug fit that moves with your mobile baby
- Large, fully breathable back-sheet
Things Bambo Nature Dream Diapers Could Do Better
While Bambo Nature diapers get lots of things right, there are some areas they could improve on.
Bambo Nature has got some impressive eco-credentials and certificates. They are still single-use diapers, so they do contribute to landfill waste. They contain some biodegradable materials but aren’t fully biodegradable.
If you’re looking for a product that has even less impact on the environment, you may want to try cloth diapers.
Having a baby is expensive! Bambo Nature diapers aren’t the cheapest option compared to some disposable diapers.
The extra cost ensures they can continue their responsible manufacturing process. They also use high-quality materials, which come at a higher price.
A baby may use around 2000-3000 diapers in their first year! Consider this figure to help you determine what is affordable for your family.
Didn’t Last the Night
Unfortunately, our overnight tests ended in leaks and extra laundry. This could be because the thin design (which is to prevent bulkiness) can’t hold a large amount of liquid.
If you’re also having problems overnight, Bambo Nature does stock specific overnight diapers.
Many Reviewers Had Leaks
Maybe we got lucky because we didn’t have any leaks using these diapers during the day. Looking at other reviews, it seems that quite a few parents did get leaks using Bambo Nature diapers.
To avoid leaks, make sure that you have the correct size and that you’re putting them on correctly.
Remember that every baby is different and a diaper that is perfect for one baby won’t work for another.
How Bambo Nature Dream Diapers Compare to Other Diapers
It can be difficult to pick a diaper when there are so many options. This is how Bambo Nature diapers compare with other sustainable choices.
Generally speaking, less eco-friendly options are cheaper as the materials aren’t sustainably-sourced. Popular budget options include Parent’s Choice Dry and Gentle and Luvs Pro Level Leak Protection diapers.
Compared to other eco-friendly brands, Bambo nature is one of the more wallet-friendly options. They’re slightly cheaper per diaper than many other popular sustainable choices, including:
The “clean conscious” sustainable diapers from Honest are slightly more affordable. These are a popular option for sustainable diapers.
Prices do change, this information is correct at the time of writing.
Bambo Nature is proud to have a reduced environmental impact compared to many diapers. They still contain non-biodegradable materials (including plastics). They explain that using these materials makes sure the diapers still perform well.
Other brands, such as Dyper, offer compostable disposable diapers. These tend to cost more but have a lower environmental impact.
Bambo Nature diapers perform well in sourcing sustainable materials, manufacturing, and packaging.
The most sustainable choice, of course, is to use reusable or cloth diapers if that is an option for your family.
Comparing reviews on Amazon.com, Bambo Nature isn’t the highest-rated sustainable option. See the below table for a comparison of ratings.
The negative reviews mention leaking, poor absorption, and sizing issues. The positive reviews praise the lack of chemicals and the fact they’re eco-friendly. Many reviewers note that these diapers don’t cause diaper rash.

|Bambo Nature||4.4 with 1450 reviews|

Reviews on how the overnight diapers perform are mixed. Like the day diapers, some reviewers have trouble with leaks.
Bambo Nature offers two different wipes:
Both of these options are dermatologically tested and hypoallergenic. They’re also both free from perfumes, chlorine, and other chemicals. They get a similar score from reviewers.
The main difference between the wipes is that the latter option are 100% biodegradable, so it is a more eco-friendly option. They are slightly more expensive.
When your little one is ready to start potty training, you may want to consider training pants.
