WHY cloth?

Why cloth diapers?

Cloth diapers are much healthier for baby......It is obvious in this day and age that we cant trust what the "studies" say is good for our babies.What is said to be OK and perfectly SAFE now may very well be recalled in 5-10 years because some health hazard was discovered!!! We could give you all sorts of frightening statistics about disposables to convince you but we encourage Mammas to use instinct and common sense in deciding what is healthy for their children.Would you rather wrap your baby’s bottom in plastic diapers full of chemicals or diapers made with natural fibers that have been used by mothers for thousands of years? That is the simple question.Contact us if you are a Mamma who wants more facts.We would be glad to help you out in your research :)

Cloth diapers are more comfortable for baby.Silky soft natural fibers against your baby’s skin instead of plastic.Try one of our Lady Liners and feel the difference yourself!

Cloth diapers don’t pollute..The earth is being stuffed full of dirty,plastic diapers that dont decompose! Cloth can be used for more then one baby if taken care of.Some will argue that it is a waste of water and causes more pollution from the soap.The amount of water used to wash cloth diapers is about the same amount as one person uses to flush the toilet 5-6 times a day and soap wont pollute if you use environmentally friendly soap!

We don’t use disposable clothes,dishes or bedding because of soap pollution or water waste so why disposable diapers?

Cloth diapers are less expensive.Some people are put off by the seemingly expensive price of cloth diapers.They range from $6.00 to $30.00 PER diaper. Disposable diapers range from (aprox).
.17 - .25(cents) PER diaper. A baby will need about 6,000 diapers in the first two years of his life with an average of 8 changes per day over a 2 year time period. With these calculations let’s assume a baby will need 60 diapers a week.

60x.25 = $15.00 a week= $60.00 a month=$720.00 a year to diaper an average child.That is a total of $1,440.00 to diaper a child with disposable diapers IF the child is out of diapers by two years old.If he does not potty train until three it would be $2,160.00.

You can cloth diaper a baby for much,much less than this…It depends on what kind of diapers you use and how many you want in your “stash” but even if you go with the most expensive choice you are still paying MUCH less than you would be with disposables.Cloth can also be used for more than one child!If you don’t have a need for that, then when your baby grows out of a size you can bring them to us and receive credit toward the next size.The amount of credit you receive depends on the condition of the diaper but a 50% trade in value is typical.

The used diapers will then be sold to another Mamma at the “used” price.We make no profit on the trade ins.We resell them for the same price that we gave for them. We do this to help make our cloth diapers as affordable as we can…..

We hope we have convinced you to give cloth a try!! They are better for your baby,the environment AND cost less than disposables!!
