The old new cloth diapers
Have you noticed how our life gets back to the old ways more and more? Natural foods are now preferred to processed/artificially grown; natural fabrics are often valued over man-made; breast feeding and natural parenting are what many parents want for their babies these days; and cloth diapers are making a big comeback too.
Why choose cloth diapers over disposables? Well, cloth diapers are just healthier for babies, they do not have the chemicals such as sodium polyacrylate and dioxin found plentiful in disposables and may cause a number of health problems. Cloth diapers are known to reduce the risk of diaper rush and I personally think cloth diapers are simply more comfortable to be in, can you imagine yourself wrapped in paper and plastic underwear 24/7? Of course there is the environment impact too although manufacturers of disposables will try to convince us otherwise. We dispose off a total of 2 billion tons of urine, feces, plastic and paper to landfills annually. It takes around 80,000 pounds of plastic and over 200,000 trees a year to manufacture the disposable diapers for American babies alone. On the other hand while we do need to wash cloth diapers every couple days and it takes extra water and electricity, they are used and used again, even passed on to other children. And lastly, the cost of using cloth is, without a question, less than the cost of using disposables (even after adding extra washing expense) and even if you go for the priciest cloth diapers.
