Is Hello Bello as good as Honest? Comparing Hello Bello brand to Honest brand diapers and wipes, was an interesting experiment! My baby girl has super sensitive skin. She gets diaper rashes very quickly. She pee’s a lot in the night. Some of her characteristics bring me to say my favorite diaper for her is the Honest brand. Is that all I use? No. For these reasons, they are my preference.

It was fun to try out these 2 subscriptions and note, I didn’t get paid or any free products for my post! This is just one mom’s opinion.

I am going on my 5th year of foster parenting. Our first placement was a 1 and 2 year old. I also have two bio-boys that I have gone through 2 years each in diapers. We have been fostering a newborn since June 2018 when she was born. What I am trying to say is I do have lots of diapering experience. All that said, I love all things baby! Therefore, I have tried every diaper I can get my hands on and so many other baby products.

We are on a budget, and I like to watch for deals. However, my baby has had a few nasty diaper rashes using other brands. So we are sticking with what we know works well for her. We work the soft, natural diapers into our finances.

Where can you find them?

Both offer a subscription. Hello Bello is sold at Wal Mart (in-store and online). Honest is sold at many more retailers (in-store and online).

Comparisons

Pros:
Hello Bello: Very soft inside and out. The wetness indicator on N-2 sizes. The diaper does not react negatively to my baby’s skin. Cute designs. Slightly lower price point over the competition. Subscription service and available in stores. Quality diaper.

Honest: Very soft inside and out. Stretchy along the back. Stretchy material along leg is more durable and form-fitting over the competition. The diaper does not react negatively to my baby’s skin. Cute designs. Subscription service and available in stores. Quality diaper.

Cons:
Hello Bello: Doesn’t make it through the night without significant leaking. Through the diaper and the sides. Not as stretchy and form-fitting as Honest. Not stretchy along the back. Therefore when a messy poop explosion happens… Well, you know. Stretch material around the leg is thinner and tends to leak more. They do not make an overnight diaper.

Honest: Slightly more expensive. The standard diapers will often not make it through the night with my heavy wetter. I started using more overnight diapers in my subscription because there isn’t a cost difference.

Both:
Plant-derived core liner. 100% chlorine-free processing. Hypoallergenic. Soft, cloth-like feel. Super cute designs. Both companies have a good story behind their brand. Their founders are actresses looking to make the world a better place, one baby at a time. I made that up, but you get my point, right? Similar stories around similar products. Whatever it is their doing, it’s working, because I feel good diapering my baby with either of these diapers. And my baby’s bottom is proof they’re quality products.

Wipes:
The wipes are so similar in look, feel, and texture. The only difference that is the Honest is a little thicker. It’s a toss-up. Honest comes with 12 more in the package and are slightly more expensive. I use both brands, and they are my favorite wipes.

Comparing Hello Bello to Honest Diapers and Wipes

Comparing the subscriptions

Hello Bello:
7 packs of diapers (Size 4 = 161). 4 packs of wipes (60 ct.). Free product for the first time ordering. I picked the lavender shampoo and body wash. Using a coupon code for new subscriptions. I paid $58.70 (including tax and free shipping). The regular price is $65.

Honest:
7 packs of diapers (Size 4 = 161). 4 packs of wipes (72 ct.).
Using a coupon code for new orders, I paid $50.97 (including tax and free shipping). Regular price is $79.95

Conclusion

First, you cannot go wrong with either of these brands. Second, for my baby, the Honest is better. It protects her sensitive skin with the form-fitting stretchy areas. Finally, Honest also makes overnight diapers. Try them both! Watch for first time subscribers coupon codes. Hello Bello had a pop-up for 15% off on their site.

<Update: As of my last subscription box Hello Bello now has overnight diapers. They were out of stock when I tried to purchase them in a bundle. As soon as I can get my hands on some Hello Bello overnights I will update the post. I am hoping they are as good as Honest!>

I am curious about what you think of my favorite diaper, Honest. If you have a favorite diaper, please let me know. Let’s keep these cute little bottoms clean and dry! Which makes for a happy baby and happy parents!

    We have not tried Honest, but have used HelloBello for about 14 weeks now. I’ve had maybe 4 blow outs and have never had leaks. I might order Honest next time just as a trial pack! But I love HelloBello and. $15 cheaper a month which I put towards the extra wipes we always need.

      Thanks for commenting! I agree with the cost savings! Keep an eye out for coupon codes for Honest! I see them semi-frequently. My girl was a HEAVY wetter and I am going to be writing a new post on Hello Bello vs Honest night time diapers! Spoiler alert! I love them both and she hasn’t soaked through either of them! 🙂

    My 3 going on 4 years old is still working on potty training (she is on the spectrum) and she is my one and only kiddo. I have only used honest since she was born (HelloBello wasn’t out yet). We love them… However… we ran out early (going through more with potty training attempts and her removing them) while I was recovering from a major surgery. My mom said the store was out and brought us a 2 huge boxes of (1 HUGGIES AND 1 PAMPERS) size 6 (same size she wears in honest)… the size difference was HUGE! She was SO much more comfortable!
    I would rather stick to the plant based but… when our shipment came I just kept using the pampers because the bigger size fit SOOOO much better.
    I can’t seem to find anything about it but your pictures look like hellobello is significantly larger… fingers crossed? It would be great to do the switch if it is!

      I have been gifted some night time Huggies and I did notice they were quite a bit bigger. My daughter is in 6 and these were size 5 and almost the same as my Honest or Hello Bello 6’s. I do think Hello Bello maybe a little larger but I didn’t notice a considerable difference as I did with Huggies. I don’t know if you have tried their training pants yet? I actually really like the Hello Bello training pants, they have nice soft stretchy sides. You may want to give them a try! Thanks for your comment and good luck with potty training! We are starting that around here!

      Hi Nichole, Thanks for your feedback, I just purchased some Honest diapers for a friend’s 3rd baby (my daughter is potty training!) so I will have to pull a pack out and check it out! I will update you when I do. I also want to post about their training pants because I have used both Hello Bello and Honest. I think you will like Hello Bello. They are quality diapers! Please feel free to write back about how you like them!

    I have used both on my daughter the honest diapers gave her a rash and she had quite a few blowouts. I was surprised they work well for my son then he was a baby(hello bello was not around when he was in diapers 😅). so then we started using hello bello and they work great for her no blowouts or rash

      Thanks for your comment! My daughter has been out of diapers for almost a year now and I have heard from some others that Honest has changed a bit. I am surprised with the rash though because they are super soft but every baby is different. I enjoyed trying new and different diapers! Appreciate the feedback on how they worked with your little ones!
