They put Kudos on their baby’s buns and all of the poo stayed inside.

Kudos to the babyverse

The way we see it, once your baby is in the world, the world is your baby. You’re celebrating. It’s awesome. It’s messy. And that’s why we’re here. With Kudos!

Our small, passionate team of MIT Engineers (and moms!) is diapering the world differently with a solution that you, your baby, and Momma Earth can get behind. A new something to celebrate.

Kudos are proven to perform against leaks and blowouts using sustainable, plant-based materials that are naturally kind to diaper rash-prone skin. In fact Kudos are the only disposable diapers to have earned the cotton natural™ seal for being lined with 100% clean cotton. Not plastic. We believe in letting butts breathe, so you can too.

Our mission

Rolling, crawling, stepping toward a plastic-free future

Let’s get there together. One tush at a time.

If all diapers were made the Kudos way

500 million

pounds of plastic would be replaced with clean, unbleached, natural cotton.

2 billion

pounds of fossil-fuel derived diaper materials would now be sourced from renewable materials each year.

That’s the equivalent weight of

0

diaper pail trash bags

Woah!

Amrita Saigal

Founder, CEO

Our Founder Amrita is all about elegant sustainability (i.e. creating sustainable products that truly work!). Kudos is just that. But, fun fact, she didn’t start with diapers! Amrita’s first company out of MIT turned banana leaves into sanitary pads that helped schoolgirls in India get ahead. Today, her dream of creating a leak-defying yet natural diaper is helping parents everywhere get ahead. She’s so excited to shepherd Kudos, and all plant-based baby goods, toward a more plastic-free future.
