Has Anyone Tried Broody Chick Compostable Diapers?

I ran across Broody Chick 100% Natural Fully Compostable Diapers and wondered if anyone can attest to their fit, leakage protection, and eco-friendliness. Broody Chick diapers are chlorine-free, fragrance-free, and hypo-allergenic. They seem like a great product, especially if you are actually able to compost them curbside. (I don’t think they can be home composted.)

One package costs $17.99, and the customers who’ve reviewed them on Amazon seem happy with them. They come in four sizes:

  • Newborn 3 – 6 kg (6.6 – 13.2 lbs) / 36 diapers
  • Infant 4 – 9 kg (8.8 – 19.8 lbs) / 32 diapers
  • Toddler 7 – 16 kg (15.4 – 35.2 lbs) / 28 diapers

  • Junior 12 – 25 kg (26.5 – 55.1) / 24 diapers

If you’ve tried Broody Chick diapers, let us know what you think!


  1. Sumayyah's Mommy says

    I tried them as I needed a biodegradable alternative when I was out with Sumayyah. They worked fine, but they did leak more than 7generations’ diapers. We didn’t buy anymore because of the hefty price-tag.

  2. MDMommyof3 says

    We use the Broody Chick diapers whenever our kids are staying at my parents house or when we are traveling. Have never had a leakage problem and am happy to have an alternative to cloth for when we are on the run. We LOVE wipes and use them all the time (I even use them to remove my mascara – hehe)
    Worth the extra $$$

  3. We have been using Broody chicks diapers for 3 months now and are mostly satisfied. They are bigger and bulkier than other alternatives like 7th generation or your typical pampers.

    Fully compostable. We have not found another option that is fully compostable in the marketplace.
    Easy to check for soil. The diaper changes color due to the absorption so it’s easy to get a visual that it is time for a change.
    Did not exacerbate /led to diaper rash

    We find that they run a little big – and if they don’t fit exactly right, there are a few leakage issues.
    I have noticed some seeping through at night when the kiddo has a wet diaper.
    Cost is high compared to other diapers
    Availability is an issue – sometimes hard to find the in stock without super high shipping charges (product ships from Canada)

  4. I have been using BC diapers for three months and love them. I never have leaks not even after 10 or 12 hours if my daughter sleeps through the night. She has had no diaper rashes. I’ve become chemically sensitized and having a zero chemical product on my baby and in the house has a huge impact our health.

  5. I just tried them and on the first diaper I put on m newborn son (the newborn size) he leaked within an hour or two. I think it is because the fit isn’t the greatest and you probably have to be really careful when you put it on.
