To use cloth diapers is to take a step in the right direction!
Not using cloth diapers? You can expect to spend anywhere from
$2000-2500 in the U.S. on disposable diapers from birth to potty
training. A great cloth diaper system for the same 2 1/2 years of
diapering can cost as little as $300! Phenomenal savings - even when you
factor in an extra 2-3 loads of laundry per week. And if you are able
to use that system for 2 babies ... wow! That's even greater savings.
Are you still thinking pins and plastic pants? Thinking that it would
be gross to clean cloth diapers? Think again; it's not like that
anymore! Velcro closures and hi-tech waterproof fabrics have replaced
pins and plastic pants. Modern cloth diaper liners mean easy clean; no rinsing, no dunking in the toilet. See our washing info to know more.
We generate between one and two tons of garbage for every baby in
single use diapers. This all goes to landfills. In ideal conditions,
one of those diapers could take 500 years to biodegrade. But there are
no ideal conditions in landfills; no air or light to break down
diapers. Even biodegradable, single use diapers will probably take a
long time to disappear. So if we follow the 3 cardinal rules; reducing,
re-using and recycling - then using cloth diapers is a logical choice.
There's nothing like the feel of soft cloth against your baby's skin!
Cloth diapered babies get changed more often, and that's healthy.
With cloth diapers there tends to be more air circulation, less
build-up of temperature, and fewer rash problems.
Besides, if you go check out our products, you'll have to agree that cloth diapers can be pretty darn cute!
