Cloth Diapers

Lately I have been using cloth diapers for Nathan and I LOVE them! My only regret is that I wish I had registered for these before he was born.  If we ever have another child, I am planning on using them from birth on up.

Clothe diapers have come a LONG way.  These new ones are placed on baby the same way as disposables.  They have thick liner inserts that you remove instead of changing the whole diaper itself.  They also have these biodegradable liners for collecting solids.  You simply flush the soiled liner and wash the insert, and repeat.

Bonuses for using cloth diapers:

  • babies who wear cloth diapers tend to potty train earlier
  • better for environment & your wallet
  • Nathan a bad chemical burn once  from the chemicals in disposables:
  • Chemicals in disposables: dioxin (known carcinogen, banned everywhere but US); TBT (known to cause hormonal problems in humans and animals); sodium polyacrylate (known to cause toxic shock syndrome in other hygiene products).
  • can buy cloth diapers using medical savings accounts, resulting in 10-35% tax savings
  • disposables = about $1500 per baby; cloth = about $300 per family (usually lasts two children)

Plus, cloth diapers are SUPER cute! 🙂

  2. Which ones do you use? I am thinking of starting Landon in them. I heard gDiapers are the best.

What do you think? Any ideas and suggestions are welcomed! :-)
