For most when they learn they are pregnant thoughts on how to offer the best for their baby begin flooding in. It is wonderful that there are so many choices, but how can you know what is best for your family?
When it comes to diapers, most parents who choose cloth diapers do so because of the environmental impact. This is a huge factor and we absolutely believe that each diaper is making a difference in our landfills! Using disposable diapers for one baby could produce a ton of waste into the landfills, up to 5,000 diapers, and those diapers will stay in landfills for more than five hundred years.
But cloth is not just better for the environment, it is also better for baby! Check out how:
1) BETTER FOR BABY’S SKIN
The natural fibers in cloth diapers are comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin. The cotton and bamboo terry most cloth diapers our diapers are soft and will not irritate baby’s skin.
2) LITTLE TO NO DIAPER RASH
Keeping your baby from the chemicals and other harsh components in disposable diapers will result in less diaper rash and irritation. Baby’s skin can breathe better with natural fibers, and with changes every 1-2 hours they do not sit in their own urine and fecal matter for hours on end like with disposables.
3) POTTY TRAIN SOONER
Babies in cloth diapers tend to be potty trained about 6-12 months earlier than babies using disposable diapers. Why? When a baby is in the potty training stage it is easier for them to recognize what’s going on with their bowels because they can feel the wetness. This awareness and recognition will help them desire the potty and dry pants sooner.
4) MODERN CLOTH DIAPERS
Modern cloth diapers are lovely and super cute! Plus cloth diapering accessories make it easy, from wet bags to snappis, you have everything you need to integrate reusable diapers into your day to day life.
5) LEAD BY EXAMPLE
With this decision you are teaching your baby from the early days how much of a positive impact we can make in our world. The choices we make do matter and do add up! You are raising a responsible and kind citizen.
Of course, there are more than 5 reasons why cloth is a positive diapering choice, but we hope you can especially experience these ones first hand.
