Believe it or not cloth diapers are making a come back. These aren't like the diapers your mothers or grandmothers used. You may have the image of a white cloth diaper with big pins and the word inconvenient may pop into your head but today's cloth diapers are much different!
Think cute, stylish, and healthier for baby and planet :)
You may be asking why someone would choose cloth when disposables are available everywhere, convenient, and when dirty you roll it up, re-tape and throw it out.
But what happens to the hundreds of thousands (or more) of diapers that get thrown away each year? They don't break down in landfills for many years if at all. And what about the chemicals that are used to make disposable diapers? Considering babies are usually in diapers all day it definitely concerns me.
I realize that cloth diapers are not for everybody but for those of you that are interested there are a lot of companies and individuals that make diapers. Some, like gDiapers, call themselves hybrids. They have flushable inserts that are biodegradable and have cute breathable covers. The best of both worlds! (They also have other options, be sure to check out their site for more info) And of course there are numerous others available. There are so many options when it comes to cloth diapering and the new styles on the market usually have Velcro, multi layers, are almost as easy as disposables, and only add 2 loads of laundry per week on average.
If you have a baby, are pregnant or thinking of babies you may want to consider cloth.
