As a mom of seven, I’ve used a LOT of diapers over the year, both cloth diapers and disposable diapers. And, since I love checking out new products for reviews and giveaways, I was excited to check out a brand new disposable diaper brand, Freestyle World Diapers.
What Makes Freestyle Diapers Different From Other Diapers
Usually, when I’m talking about a new product, people want to know what sets this product apart from others, so I’ll start with that.
Freestyle Diapers are Made Differently – With Bamboo!
Did you know that traditional diapers use a lot of trees? Instead of trees, Freestyle diapers are made with a BambooTek core and built around sustainable organic bamboo pulp.
Bamboo is the fastest-growing plant on Earth, meaning it’s the most renewable source of future diapers. My cousins have some bamboo growing on a property they recently purchased. They can tell you it’s true, this stuff grows fast!
And because bamboo is so dry, these diapers are 55% more absorbent. BambooTek is also 24% more protective against humidity and retains 39% more, which translates to fewer diaper rashes, leaks, and blowouts.
On top of all of that, Freestyle’s supply chain is plastic and carbon negative, meaning that you’re actually removing plastic and carbon from the environment when you buy Freestyle!
Freestyle Offers a Modern Look for Diapers
There are two types of people – those who care about presentation and those who don’t. Ironically, the day these diapers arrived I had an unrelated discussion with my husband about brand presentation, specifically brand packaging.
Personally, I must confess that packaging does not impress me. I just don’t care about that sort of thing. I actually didn’t think many people cared about that. I just care that the product performs the way it should and that the price is right.
My husband on the other hand apparently cares about brand packaging a lot. (You know what they say, opposites attract!)
I say all of this to say, if you care about the packaging of your diapers, wow, Freestyle does it right! Within the box of diapers was a paper that looked like a newspaper with info about the diapers and brand. It was very unique and something I’d never seen before. Even the cardboard box itself was colorful on the inside!
The diapers themselves are also packaged in modern colorful plastic packages and inside you’ll find diapers with 1 of 2 different prints. One print is a pretty green and white print and the other has colorful emoji smiley faces.
My Freestyle Diapers Review
I tried out these diapers on two of my children. The first child I tried them on is a baby who is about 4 months old. I have him in size 2 diapers. I also tried them on my 2-year-old (32 months) and used size 5 on him.
For comparison, I have tried a LOT of diaper brands over the years, including Huggies, Pampers, Luvs, and Seventh Generation, as well as store brands from Food Lion, Lidl, Target, and Martins/Giant.
The ladies at my church threw a baby shower for me so I received a number of different types of diapers. Because of that, I can compare the quality of these Freestyle diapers to Huggies, Pampers, Target, and Nature’s Promise – all brands I have used within the past 2 months with him.
These diapers are advertised as being more absorbent than others and I have to say, the absorbency on them is great. I would say that Freestyle diapers are right up there with Huggies and Pampers (which, in my opinion, do have a higher absorbency than the other brands you will find at the grocery store.
There are some diapers I refuse to put on my 4-month-old before going to bed, including the Target brand and Nature’s Promise diapers. Those leak through every night! The Freestyle diapers have been great overnight.
These diapers also have a color-changing line to let you know when they are wet.
Feel of Freestyle Diapers
They aren’t lying, these diapers are soft! They feel great on the inside and I know must feel great on my kids’ bums.
Fit of Freestyle Diapers
These diapers fit very similarly to the other diapers I’ve tried. They appear to be sized very similarly to other brands of the same size.
Cost of Freestyle Diapers
These diapers do cost a little bit more than a typical store brand. That’s to be expected with a higher-quality product.
If you choose to purchase the diapers one box at a time (one box is a month’s supply) it will cost you $92. However, if you sign up for a subscription, the cost is just $78 per month.
As a comparison to the big-name brands you’re probably familiar with, a box of size 2, 186 Count Pampers Pure diapers currently costs $65.44 on Amazon at regular price or $55.62 if you unlock 15% off with Subscribe and Save. (Obviously, this price can and will fluctuate.)
A size 2 package of Freestyle diapers contains 192 diapers so you ARE going to get a few additional diapers.
Now, if we compare these diapers to a brand that is more similar in construction, like Dyper (another bamboo diaper brand) these diapers are actually currently a bit cheaper.

Overall Thoughts on Freestyle Diapers
We’ve been using them for about a month now and I’m really happy with these diapers. Yes, they do cost a bit more than other diapers, but that’s to be expected with a higher-quality product.
I would assume that these diapers would be less apt to cause sensitivity issues and I love that these diapers have clean ingredients. That’s a huge plus to me!
Bottom line – if the thing you care about most is finding the cheapest diapers, these aren’t for you.
However, if you’re looking for a diaper that’s modern, features tree-free ingredients is soft, and/or is ultra-absorbent, Freestyle is here for you!
I also love that you can set up a monthly subscription so diapers are one less thing you have to worry about remembering to buy every month at the store!
