Reasons why reusable diapers are better than disposables
Better for the world
The accumulation of disposable diapers in landfills is a significant issue, as they are one of the largest contributors of waste. Every year, an estimated 20 billion disposable diapers are added to these landfills, taking up to 500 years to decompose. This means that even generations to come will still be faced with this problem. One child's switch to cloth diapers can make a significant difference.
Healthier for baby
Disposable diapers contain a variety of dyes, fragrances, absorbent gel particles and chemicals, some of them carcinogenic, all that can irritate a baby's delicate skin and cause rashes and allergic reactions. The absence of harsh chemicals makes cloth diapers safer and gentler. Moreover, our personal experience with cloth diapers saw no occurrences of the frustrating "blow-outs". They are also more breathable than the plastic disposables.
The cost of diapering one child with disposable diapers can add up quickly, with estimates ranging from $2,500 to $3,000 over the course of three years. On the other hand, investing in cloth diapers for the same period of time can cost around $600, which includes the cost of energy and detergent for washing. This savings grows even larger with multiple children, making cloth diapering a cost-effective option for families.
Faster path to potty training
Since cloth diapers allow babies to feel wetness, they tend to be more aware of when they need to go to the bathroom. This early recognition leads to faster adaptation and an earlier transition to using the potty, resulting in less work for you as a parent. This can free up time and energy that you can use for other aspects of parenting or simply enjoy a little extra rest.
They can be more practical
Cloth diapers provide peace of mind knowing you always have diapers at home. With disposables you can find yourself in situations where you may run out of them in the middle of the night or be in a remote area where access to stores is limited or, like we've seen in the pandemic, find empty shelves at the store. Cloth diapers makes you self sufficient and are an ideal choice also for families who like the off grid lifestyle.
They are aesthetically pleasing
Cloth diapers come in a variety of styles, colors and prints, making them not only functional but also visually appealing. You will want to show off your little one's cute diaper, and pants will often be an unnecessary accessory during the summer. This turns what can be a mundane and tiring aspect of parenting into a fun and visually pleasing experience.
Makes you feel good about all of the above
Using cloth diapers also provides a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment, knowing that you're doing your part in promoting a more natural lifestyle, impacting your baby's health, it brings a sense of altruism and caring to your parenting journey.
Why sustainability matters
Sustainability is crucial because it allows us to meet our current needs without compromising the ability of future generations to do the same. Choosing sustainable products and practices helps to reduce waste and minimize our impact on the environment, ensuring that we can continue to enjoy the natural world and all that it has to offer.
The power of sustainable parenting lies in the ability to
instill in children the importance of taking care of the Earth and making conscious choices to reduce their environmental impact.
By teaching children these values from a young age, we can help create a generation of individuals who are more likely to make decisions that promote positive change in the future. Additionally, it can also help save money, promote healthy habits and increase the bond with your child.
