My 10-year old Star Wars loving son would love it if all I said about choosing reusable cloth diapers (especially for Earth Day) was, “Do or do not. There is no try.” Just dive in and choose to use cloth diapers. There’s no greater convenience than the commitment to having a set of diapers as the first and last purchase you need for changing your child from birth through potty training.
We know these 3 things are why people choose cloth.
- Using reusable cloth diapers will save you money. You can start with the highest quality diapers for as little as $400.
- Those 7,000-9,000 diaper changes from birth to potty learning equals 1 ton of solid waste going to a landfill. Yes, using cloth will lessen the amount of garbage you take out to your curb in HRM every 2 weeks. The Real Diaper Association says, “our common sense tells us that cloth diapers are the ultimate in recycling because they are used again and again, not entering a landfill until they are nothing but rags.”
- It’s healthier! Knowing “at least half of all babies will exhibit rash at least once during their diapering years.” using cloth allows you to use the softest, most breathable and absorbent materials, against your baby’s skin without the many chemicals contained in disposable diapers.
When you buy cloth diapering supplies at Nurtured we stock the highest quality, provide unparalleled service to support you, and will do the legwork to help you have the most positive experience.
Want more facts? Here’s what the Real Diaper Association has to share.
When I was expecting baby #2 Earth Day was both my invite and commitment to choosing cloth. I want you to know I never looked back. My previous experience with disposables left me disgusted by the waste, the rash, and the constant search to find the right fit. When I had my second I never bought or used any disposable diapers as using cloth was a great convenience even to a busy lifestyle. I used cloth at home, every time we went out, later sent my child to day care with cloth and even traveled with it. There was no waste, no rash and the fit was amazing. If you can do a load of laundry, it’s a simple as that. Choose cloth.
Here’s what a recent cloth diaper workshop attendee at Nurtured had to say,
“We did actually decide to go with cloth diapers after your workshop!! It really eased my husband’s and my mind about what came with that decision.”
We will get you up and running with high quality covers and inserts for as little as $400 that will last for at least 2-3 years of use.
