Becoming a parent is an exciting time.  There is so much to learn and experience with your new baby.  However, learning everything that there is to learn is not always easy.  In fact, there is a great deal of pressure on new parents because naturally you want to make all of the right choices for your child’s upbringing.  One of the biggest decisions that you must make is whether you are going to use disposable diapers or organic cloth diapers.  While both options have their pros and cons, there has been a dramatic increase in parents using cloth diapers on their children.

And here’s what these parents are saying about using reusable organic cloth diapers:

Rocker dad, Dave Matthews of the Dave Matthews Band:

“We use cloth diapers for our new baby because I think diapers might be the number three piece of garbage in terms of environmental damage. So, if you have a little cloth diaper service nearby, that’s good.” [Source: People Magazine]

Shawn Bean, executive director of Babytalk Magazine:

“Diapers are one of, if not the largest, component to modern parenting.…I think every household between birth and potty training will go through thousands… If you did a cross section of all the landfills in America, I think what you’re going to see is disposable diapers and non-biodegradable plastic toys. I think parents and families have one of the largest rolls in reducing the amount of waste we create.” [Source: TimesUnion]

Ashlee Phelan, a mom and a cloth diaper advocate turned owner of Green Horizon Diaper Service:

…started cloth diapering her own child because she heard it might help her daughter avoid frequent diaper rashes, which it did. And reusable cloth diapers can be much cheaper than disposables if washed at home (about $300 depending on brand, and those diapers can be reused with future children). Although a diaper service costs an average of $25 a week, it’s still comparable to buying brand-name disposables. [Source: TimesUnion]

Ashley Lukens, owner of the Baby aWEARness store at Manoa Marketplace:

Infants in organic cloth diapers experience fewer instances of diaper rash and are not exposed to the harsh chemicals used to bleach disposable diapers and enhance their absorbency. [Source: StarAdvertiser]

Why Using Cloth Diaper is not Enough

Organic Cloth Diaper is Made up of Organic Cotton

You are going to have a baby! It is an exciting time in your life. Nothing will ever be the same, and that is kind of amazing. However, that also means that you are in the midst of learning how to do many new things. One of those things is to think about every detail that surrounds your baby’s life. One detail that many parents decide on is that if they are going to use organic cloth diaper instead of disposable diaper. This decision can be made for a variety of reasons, but one of the most important reasons is that organic cloth diapers are significantly better for your child’s skin. That being said, not all cloth diapers are as good as they could be for your child’s skin. For example, organic cotton diapers are truly a far superior choice for your child’s comfort and health.

People do not realize that most baby clothes and cloth diapers are made of cotton. Most of this cotton is conventionally grown, but what people really do not know is that this conventionally grown cotton can be a hot bed of toxin. This cotton can carry poisons, pesticides, fertilizers, and herbicides. In addition to this, cotton is processed and is exposed to a very harsh chlorine-based bleach. All of this can be exposed to your baby’s skin when your child wears these garments, and each one of those toxins have been identified as possible carcinogens. (A carcinogen is a cancer causing substance)

What does that mean for you? That means that you are unknowingly placing this on your baby’s skin and exposing it to these dangerous chemicals. A baby’s skin is more sensitive than an adult’s, which means that your child could be at a significantly higher risk than you are.
