What is the healthynest diapering program?
While you may know the importance of choosing a non-toxic and eco-friendly diaper, did you know that turning a diaper change into a brain building massage can aid in your child’s cognitive development? In this article, we look at how the game-changing brand, healthynest, has worked to create the only EWG VERIFIED™ diaper as well as a personalized enrichment program designed to help your tot reach important developmental milestones.
There’s a reason people refer to babies and children as ‘little sponges.’
It doesn’t matter where they go, who they’re with or what they’re doing – they’re soaking up the world around them and forming important nerve connections between the body and brain.
One woman who fully understands this is Shazi Visram, the mastermind behind healthynest. Not only did she help create the only EWG VERIFIED™ diaper, she also worked with a team of experts to create a holistic diapering program designed to help babies reach important developmental milestones.

What the healthynest Diapering Program is
Available in 1 Month Supplies of both diapers and diaper pants, the healthynest diapering program takes keeping your tot clean and tidy a step further by including age-based activities to help stimulate your baby’s brain. From encouraging physical milestones like reaching, grasping and batting to cognitive achievements like responding to their name or laughing at a funny sound, a diaper change isn’t just a diaper change with healthynest.
On top of receiving five personalized enrichment activity cards based on your child’s birthdate, you’ll also gain access to exclusive, stage-specific videos to support you and your baby. OH and each month you can also opt to receive their non-toxic wet and/or dry wipes!
The importance of choosing non-toxic diapers
At The Tot, we never use or recommend anything that hasn’t passed The Tot Test. This means we’ve looked deep into third-party testing, examined ingredients lists and asked in-depth questions to ensure it’s free of the chemicals we avoid.
When it comes to diapers, we are extra vigilant because they’re something our babies and toddlers wear for the majority of the day AND have skin contact with. Here’s the thing about baby and toddler skin: it’s much thinner than an adult’s because they have to accommodate for all that growing! Unfortunately, this means they’re at a higher risk for absorbing chemicals topically. It’s also super sensitive!
That’s why when choosing diapers we avoid chemicals such as:
- Synthetic fragrances
- Harmful phthalates
- PFAS chemicals
- Heavy metals
- Odor absorbers
- Pesticides + Herbicides
- Any known endocrine disruptors
Healthynest has taken this challenge very seriously and delivered diapers and diaper pants that are not only free of the above, but also OEKO-TEX Standard 100 Certified and EWG VERIFIED™.
Why we extra love healthynest’s EWG verification
Founded by Ken Cook, the Environmental Working Group is on a mission to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. Their team of scientists bring the utmost research and rigor to teach families how to make choices that protect their families.
As an avid fan of EWG, Shazi knew she wanted to have EWG’s stamp of approval.
‘A baby sits in a diaper for the first three years of its life, yet they’re not FDA regulated and diaper manufacturers don’t have to disclose their materials or even test the safety of their products. I believe that we as parents need and deserve transparency when it comes to choosing the products to use with our babies, so I set out to create a better alternative. On December 10, healthynest launched the first-ever EWG-Verified diaper. It’s the culmination of three years of development and has been tested for over 900 chemical compounds in collaboration with laboratory partners from around the world. We truly have the safest and softest diaper available on the market. Everything that touches your baby’s skin in a healthynest diaper is made entirely from 100% plant based materials, and the diapers are made in a carbon-neutral facility. I’m so proud of what we’ve been able to create, it really is a step forward in raising the bar for the entire industry.’
