Better for Baby
Do you know how dangerous disposable diapers could be to your baby's health? Here is a list of a few things that are contained inside of disposable diapers:
Dioxin - "An extremely toxic by-product of the paper-bleaching process. It is a carcinogenic chemical, listed by the EPA as the most toxic of all cancer-linked chemicals. It is banned in most countries, but not the U.S."
Tributyl-tin (TBT) - "A toxic pollutant known to cause hormonal problems in humans and animals."
Sodium Polyacrylate - "A type of super absorbent polymer (SAP) which becomes a gel like substance when wet. This is a similar substance as that which was used in the super absorbent tampons until the early 1980s when it was revealed that the substance increased the risk of toxic shock syndrome.
"In May 2000, the Archives of Disease in Childhood published research showing that scrotal temperature is increased in boys wearing disposable diapers, and that prolonged use of disposable diapers will blunt or completely abolish the physiological testicular cooling mechanism important for normal spermatogenesis."
The above quotes were taken from here.
If you decide to continue using disposable diapers then you can expect to spend around $2000 per child.
Do you have any idea what the average potty training age is? They say the average is about 2.5 years old but for boys more like 3 to 3.5 years old! In 2.5 years your child will roughly use 7000 diapers -- more if you change them immediately after they wet their diaper (unfortunately most people don't change the diaper immediately so they can save money by using less disposables -- can you imagine peeing your pants just a little and not changing them, because "Hey, it was just a little!") A disposable diaper costs up to $.33 each depending on the brand you use (most people use Pampers or Huggies which are the most expensive mainstream diaper). Seven thousand diapers at $.33ea would total an astounding $2310!!!! And that is just for one child! By using the cloth diapers on this website you can easily spend less than $1500 for one child. But the best part is you can reuse them for your second child, pass them along to a friend or resell them. You'd be shocked at the resale value of cloth diapers. Try selling a used disposable diaper! Yes, cloth diapers will save you money.
Better for the Environment
Remember how many diapers one child will approximately use in their diapering days? That's right -- 7000! That is a LOT of diapers in the landfill.
In the late 80's over 18 billion disposable diapers were sold and used in the US. The numbers have certainly gone up since then. We can easily say that over 20 billion disposable diapers are going into the landfills each year. It is unknown how long it takes a disposable diaper to break down but it has been projected at taking 250-500 years!
Did you know you are supposed to dump the solid matters from a disposable diaper into a toilet? That is per the instructions of the disposable diaper manufacturers however less than 1% of parents do this. Instead that poop is rolled up in a gel filled plastic ball rotting in a landfill leaching dangerous chemicals into our ground water supply.
Disposable diapers are one of the top (3rd) single use consumer items going into the landfills. They make up approximately 50% of all household waste in a home where a child is in diapers.
The amount of water that is wasted manufacturing disposable diapers is 2.3 times more than what is used washing cloth diapers.
