Cloth Diapers Help Reduce Waste, Irritation

Posted by CDB Guest on 9/28/2010 to Cloth Diaper News

The Fort Wayne Journal Gazette posted a nice article on green living, which features the use of cloth diapers. We're especially happy to see this passage which refers to mom Deana Snyder's use of cloth:

But she liked that they created less waste – disposable diapers take an estimated 250 to 500 years to decompose, according to the Real Diaper Association, a pro-cloth diaper non-profit. The cloth diapers also didn’t cause baby No. 3 to break out in a chemical reaction the way disposable diapers did.

Think about it: a diaper is not only used to collect waste, but it is something that will constantly touch your baby's skin. There's nothing more delicate, and when you consider the possibility that irritation will result when you use something that isn't natural...put yourself in your baby's shoes, or diaper, for a moment. Would you want to break out there?

Kudos to Deana Snyder for using cloth, and helping reduce waste and possible skin irritations.
