I’ve been absolutely spoiled by diaper subscriptions. When my son was first born, we’d schlepp out to Target regularly for refills and had a lot of “Um, we only have two diapers left in the house” type of moments. Having diapers delivered to my door has been SO much better!
On the surface, Parasol is pretty similar to Honest Co: both companies offer subscriptions for their super cute & eco-friendly diapers and wipes. The biggest differences between the two brands in my opinion are:
- Add on products. Parasol does not offer anything besides diapers & wipes, but with Honest Company you can add personal care and cleaning products to your bundles at a discount.
- Choose when to get wipes. Parasol offers a subscription bundle of diapers only, OR diapers and wipes. You can switch between the two as needed. With a toddler, we would never get through 4 packs of wipes in a month with Honest company, so having the ability to pick and choose when to get wipes with Parasol is huge for me personally.
- No separate night time diapers. Parasol says their diapers are suitable for both daytime and nighttime use, whereas Honest Company has a separate product for overnight.
We received the “Delight” collection of diapers, with 4 packs in the box. My son is older, so we received a size 6 with 30 diapers per pack, or 120 total. Like other diaper brands, the number of diapers per pack and per delivery will decrease with size:
Each pack has both designs from this collection inside. Can I just say how much I love these prints? They’re so cute and the designs feel really unique to me. I love kid’s clothing with designs/patterns as opposed to characters/words, so these are right up our alley.
I mean, I probably wouldn’t frame a diaper to hang in my home… but these designs kind of tempt me.
What really impressed me, though, was how SOFT these diapers were! Honest Diapers are definitely “papery” and stiff feeling by comparison. These feel more like fabric, both inside and out.
The fit was great, too. Size-wise, I think these were very comparable to Honest Company, but due to the material they had a bit more stretch or flex to them. My son seemed very comfortable in them and they weren’t bulky under his clothes. As he’s gotten older, he’s gotten a habit of pushing his diaper down and fidgeting with it a bit more. It seemed to me like he didn’t do that as much with the Parasol diapers on.
The closures were pretty standard, and we had no issues with them.
We tested these both for daytime and overnight over the course of a week, and I’m really impressed: Parasol held true to their word, and these worked perfectly as a nighttime diaper with absolutely no leaking. Honest’s overnights by comparison have really been hit or miss to me, and always seem a little damp in the morning no matter what. Plus, they really do seem so comfortable and soft– I was really blown away by that difference.
Verdict: I honestly don’t expect much from diapers except that they do their basic job, but Parasol really blew me away. These are super soft and seem comfortable, with a good fit, plus they have cute patterns and the flexibility to wear 24 hours a day.
Value wise, these are a more expensive diaper but are overall in line with similar eco-friendly brands. For the diapers-only subscription, Parasol will run you about $0.26/diaper for Newborn size and $0.58/diaper for size 6, which is similar to The Honest Co.
I’m also a big fan of the flexibility to either get wipes or skip them, like we did with this delivery. I always had an overage with Honest’s subscription and am actually still working on using up our stash of wipes!
