Not sure whether to use cloth diapers?
Read on for Dy-Dee of Pasadena's reasons why you should choose
a cloth diaper
It is estimated that
by the age of 2 1/2,
a baby will spend 22,000 hours in diapers and parents will have
changed over 13,000 diapers.
It is important to
consider that cloth diapers are as good for your baby's skin as
they are for the earth. Unlike disposables, cotton
breathes, letting air circulate to baby's skin. And,
unlike chemical-laden disposables, cotton diapers are naturally
absorbent. It also means less friction on tender skin,
reducing the likelihood of diaper rash.
In 1955, 100% of
babies born in America wore cotton diapers and only 7% of them
experienced diaper rash. However, in 1998, with 90% of
American babies in disposable diapers, the occurrence of diaper
rash increased to 78%. A survey of diaper services like
Dy-Dee's are five time less likely to ever get a rash than when
other diaper styles are used.
