What a great article about cloth diapering! What a difference we can make if every child used even one cloth diaper per day. I'm proud to cloth diaper my little boy!

Obviously you don't care much for the planet, and what about your kids? Cloth diapers are much more comfortable. Sure they may be a little more work, but hey, what did you think mothering was all about?

Just because i have never thought about cloth diapers doesnt mean i dont care about my kids or the planet! My parents never used cloth diapers and i guess i didnt even know people still did. I'm a young mom and very modernized i guess. And i think mothering is about a lil more then putting cloth diapers on my kids!

The best of the best get cloth diapers. Once you get the hang of folding them correctly for boys and girls then they are the tops!

So soft, so comfortable, so gentle.

And diaper pins last forever.

You don't owe anybody an explanation for the way you choose to take care of your children. It is a choice. Some people don't seem to understand that. And you are right, just because you don't cloth diaper your children doesn't mean you don't care about the planet. And you are right about mothering.

So what do you clean the cloth diapers with?
Just curious.

I acutally make cloth diapers. I'd be happy to help with laundry questions! They are very easy to clean.

I have done some research. It seems that there are a lot of toxins involved in making cloth diapers. Those toxins then get into our earth along with poop (which is supposed to be flushed before you throw out the diaper, but no one does this). They take forever to break down in landfills. Not only are there toxins released while making them, they use lots of water and energy doing in the process, and they are not recyclable. These toxins stay next to baby's skin, causing rashes, and worse. Some of the toxins are linked to cancers and infertility. So it IS healthier for your baby to use cloth. And yes, you will use some water and energy to clean them, but it's not much if you are smart about it. And using organic fabrics cut down on bad cotton farming practices which harm our environment.
