why use cloth diapers


Because it is ecological:

Cloth diapers may be used for all children from birth to weaning.

Diapers made of natural or synthetic fabrics made from recycled materials.

Many families buy second-hand cloth diapers

Did you know:

Every day is born in about 350,000 infants and toddlers = approximately 55 tons of waste is not biodegradable in one day!

Every day is born in about 350,000 infants and toddlers = approximately 55 tons of waste is not biodegradable in one day!

Garbage produced disposable diapers is the third largest in the world.

One child from birth to weaning produces about 1 ton of garbage disposable diapers.

Regular disposable diaper biodegradable between 250 and 500 years.

Because of it healthy:

What should be of serious concern to all parents, are the toxic chemicals present in disposable diapers. Dioxin, which in various forms has been shown to cause cancer, birth defects, liver damage, skin diseases, and genetic damage, is a by-product of the paper-bleaching process used in manufacturing disposable diapers.

Trace quantities may even exist in the diapers themselves! Dioxin is listed by the EPA as the most toxic of cancer-related chemicals. Disposable diapers contain Tributyl-tin (TBT) - a toxic pollutant known to cause hormonal problems in humans and animals. Disposable diapers also contain sodium polyacrylate. If you have ever seen the gel-like, super absorbent crystals in a disposable, then you have seen this first hand. Sodium polyacrylate is the same substance that was removed from tampons because of its link to toxic shock syndrome. No studies have been done on the long-term effects of this chemical being in contact with a baby's reproductive organs 24 hours a day for upwards of two years.

Studies have also been done to show that the chemical emissions from disposable diapers can cause respiratory problems in children. Cloth diapers, on the other hand, are free of the many chemicals contained in disposable diapers.

Cloth diapers do not contain any chemicals at all. After all, we, the adults, wearing cotton underwear rather than nylon, so why would we want to wrap the bottom with plastic gentle with chemicals 24/7?

Did you know:

Process disposable diaper laundering chlorine releases a tiny amount of dioxin, a toxic and carcinogenic substance.

Most disposable diapers contain Tributyltin (TBT) - antiseptics prevents a formation of bacteria and extends the shelf life of the diaper. In the past, TBT has been shown that the hormone causes problems in animals and humans. For more information click here

Because it is will Save you Money:

Every child from birth to weaning (average age of weaning is 2.5 years) would need roughly to -6300 swaddling.

Average price disposable diaper is 0.2 $.

Diaper rash due to the growing use of disposable diapers, most parents also use diapering creams every diaper change. Cream costs between 8-15 dollars.

Expenditure on disposable diaper will cost about $ 2,565 to the age of 2.5 years.

Cloth diapers cost between 10-35 dollars.

To wash once every three days, we will need an average of 24 diapers.

Add the cost of detergent, water, and electricity - roughly $ 600 maximum 2.5 years.

You can build a cloth diaper stash for anywhere from $100-$600 depending on the style of diaper you choose. That stash will not only last through one child, but can be reused for multiple children. If you buy an "expensive" cloth diaper stash and use it for three children, you have spent $500 on diapers. In disposable diapers, that would have cost you over $4,800. I don't know about you, but I'd prefer to keep my extra $4,300 plus and use it on something else — like a college fund, family vacation, or a home remodel!
