Why Cloth Diaper?

Posted on Friday, December 25, 2009 in Cloth Diaper
  • Cloth Diaper saves money. The cost of using disposable diapers on a baby till 3 yrs old, the average age for a toddler to be fully toilet trained would be RM3832.50.

    While the cost of cloth diapers for the same age group would be RM1569. This figure includes detergent and water needed to wash the diapers.

    • Disposable diapers has chemicals in them which causes skin rash in babies and many other side effects which will be discussed soon. Cloth diapers are made of the highest quality of cloth which are antibacterial and last for many many yrs if properly taken care of. Cloth diapers are highly breathable so babies hardly ever suffer from skin rash. Disposable diapers which are less breathable causes uncontested amount of discomfort, imagine wearing plastic and paper on your buttock all the time! The heat becomes worse when disposable diapers are full of urine and together with the rapid bacterial growth, the skin rash would be nasty!

      Types of chemicals found in disposable diapers. (info taken from diapersafari.com)

      • SODIUM POLYACRYLATE, which is linked to Toxic Shock Syndrome and can therefore no longer be used in tampons, is the super absorbent gel in disposable diapers. You can find the little “gel balls” on the skin of your baby’s bottom. It is interesting to note that employees in factories manufacturing sodium polyacrylate suffer from female organ problems, slow healing wounds, fatigue and weight loss.
      • TBT (TRIBULYTIN) In May 2000 Greenpeace found TBT in Pampers® Baby Dry in Germany. TBT is one of the most toxic substances ever made. It harms the immune system and impairs the hormonal system. There is speculation that it could cause boys to become sterile.
      • DIOXIN Traces of the carcinogen Dioxin have been found in disposable diapers. Dioxin causes liver disease, immune system suppression and genetic damage. It is a byproduct of bleaching with chlorine gas and is banned in most countries. Unfortunately, the USA still allows it.

      These chemical caused:

      • MALE INFERTILITY Disposable diapers could be the cause of the sharp rise in male infertility over the past 25 years. It is thought that disposable diapers heat up boys testicles to such a degree that it stop them from developing normal.
      • ASTHMA In 1998 a study showed that childhood respiratory problems, including asthma, might be linked to inhaling the mixture of chemicals emitted from disposable diapers.
      • UTI INFECTIONS IN BABY GIRLS also seem on the rise with an increased use of disposable diapers.
      • BABIES POORLY DEVELOPED OUTER SKIN LAYER ABSORBS ABOUT 48 CHEMICALS if you use disposable diapers & wipes and standard baby products. This can be greatly reduced by using cloth diapers and natural baby products.

      Cloth Diapers are better for the Environment! (Info taken from diapersafari.com)

        Each disposable diaper takes 500 yrs to decompose. Every child adds a minimum of 6500 disposable diapers (30% of which is non biodegradable) to our landfills. Included in the soiled diapers are many of pounds of raw fecal matter. Viruses found in the feces can pose a threat to our water supplies and wild life, by seeping through cracks that sometimes develop in landfills.

        The manufacturing of disposable diapers poses another threat to our environment, requiring large quantities of wood pulp (trees) and dangerous complex chemical substances, which leave behind many harmful byproducts.

        Compare all that to the resources used to make and clean three to five dozen cloth diapers with no raw fecal matter!)

        1. Cloth diapers are comfortable for babies! They are soft and is made of natural, chemical free and very absorbent fibers. Most of them are made either from cotton, hemp or bamboo which remains cooling in the hottest most humid weather. A layer of fleece are mainly used against baby’s skin to keep them dry. It wicks the moisture into the soaker. Info taken from diapersafari.com
        1. POTTY TRAINING IS EASIER WITH CLOTH DIAPERS! On average cloth diapered children potty train 6 months earlier than children wearing disposable diapers. Cloth diapers do not mask the sensation of wetness. Info taken from diapersafari.com

          Awesome post mate.

        24. Great points…I would note that as someone who really doesn’t write on blogs much (in fact, this may be my first post), I don’t think the term “lurker” is very flattering to a non-posting reader. It’s not your fault in the least , but perhaps the blogosphere could come up with a better, non-creepy name for the 90% of us that enjoy reading the posts.

        25. Ciao! Complimenti per il blog! E’ veramente carino e ci sono un sacco di cose interessanti! Tornerò a visitarti, ciao ciao!

        42. One important thing is that if you find yourself searching for a student loan you may find that you will need a co-signer. There are many situations where this is correct because you might find that you do not use a past credit score so the lender will require that you have someone cosign the financial loan for you. Thanks for your post.

        43. My friend first found your blog on Google and she referred your blog to me.
