I'm a mom of two, and I've tried just about every brand of baby diaper out there. With my first, I used to buy Target brand diapers and they worked great. However my second daughter ended up having a little more sensitive skin, so our old go-tos didn't work. We tried almost every brand in the store but no matter what we tried, she would end up with a rash.
I had heard about bamboo diapers before but never really looked into them. I figured they were just another overpriced "crunchy" baby product that didn't actually work. But after doing some research, I decided to give them a try. We've been using them for over a year now and I'm happy to say they really do live up to the hype! Since we've switched to Dyper my daughter no longer gets diaper rash and they're now our go to diapers.
In this post, I'll share with you everything you need to know about Dyper bamboo diapers including how they work, why they're so great for sensitive skin, and where you can get them.

What are Dyper Bamboo Diapers?
Dyper is a brand of bamboo diapers that are quickly gaining popularity. They're made with super soft and absorbent bamboo fabric that's gentle on sensitive skin. Bamboo is also a sustainable and eco-friendly material, so you can feel good about using them.
When I first got our Dyper order I expected them to feel the same as other eco-friendly brands, like Honest Co., but I was wrong. They are extremely soft and one of my favorite things is they don't have that icky chemical diaper smell that other brands have.
Our Dyper Experience
I was initially nervous about the absorbency of the diapers since they're made of bamboo and my baby tends to pee A LOT. But I was pleasantly surprised to find that they work just as well, if not better than, other brands we've tried. The diapers also tend to fit her a little better than traditional diapers and since we've switched blowouts have gone from a weekly occurrence to almost non-existent.
Since we've switched to Dyper my baby hasn't had any diaper rash! She used to get diaper rash almost daily no matter what cream we used or how often we changed her. It was so frustrating because nothing seemed to work. But since switching to Dyper she's been rash free. I'm convinced it's the bamboo fabric that's so gentle on her skin.
Dyper diapers are more expensive than regular diapers you'd find in stores, but in my opinion, they're worth it. A box of Dyper diapers costs $99 ( or $89 if you do the recurring subscription like we do) and comes with 100 diapers which comes out to be $0.99 a diaper (or $0.89 on subscription) vs. $0.49 per diaper for Honest Co. diapers. However, since it's eliminated diaper rash and almost all blowouts for us it's been completely worth it.
While Dyper diapers are as absorbent as the old store brands we'd buy, I did notice that Dyper diapers tend to get a little saggier when they're full. My baby does have a pretty big pee though, so it might just be her. I don't think it's a big enough issue to not use them though, and they still work great - we're still able to get about 2 hours of wear on each diaper.

I decided to sign up for a Dyper subscription after we had great luck with our first box. The subscription is super easy to manage and you can change or cancel it at any time, as well as adjust diaper sizing before the order ships. I also love that they offer free shipping on all orders, which makes the price a little more manageable. I also like that it takes one more thing off my to do list since I don't have to worry about reordering diapers every few weeks.
Dyper Pull Ups
For a few months, we also had a subscription to the Dyper pull-ups for my older daughter as she was potty training. As soon as she started wearing these she quickly told us she preferred them because she liked how soft they were and she said they were more comfortable than the old pull-ups she had been wearing.
