    I use cloth diapers b/c I want my baby to be comfortable.

  • Beth Ann said...
    June 10, 2014 at 2:14 pm

    They’re comfortable, easier on the eyes, and I don’t have to worry about them splitting open and hurting my child.

    I remember before I got pregnant the first time, I would get red and irritated down there whenever I would wear a menstrual pad because of the chemicals. I remember thinking I wish there was a better way to do this. I would hate to put something like that against my babies skin where it would literally burn her skin. No thank you. I’m so glad I discovered cloth diapers. They are way way way more reliable than disposables.

    Having 2 under two cloth diapers is going to be a cost effective switch for us and anything I can do to keep something my children are exposed to going all natural is always a plus!

    natural products prevent a lot of unwanted reactions such as diaper rash and blowouts

  • Mary W said...
    June 7, 2014 at 11:55 am

    I initially wanted to save money. As we still only have one child right now, I don’t know that we have done that as we have tried to figure out what we like best, works with our water, and fits our big kid. Now I am so glad that we did bc she always get diaper rash if she wear disposables for a full day. At this point we are pretty basic; we prefer prefolds and flats to AIO or pockets bc my girl has always gone through a lot of diapers each day (10+). She complains if there is anything in her diaper! Our favorite AIO or pocket diaper is our single BumGenius; we just can’t afford to have a full stash of therm. We would be so excited to add another one!

    Knowing exactly what I’m putting on my family’s skin/putting into their bodies is important to me to reduce the amount of chemicals and other not so good things out there. Choosing natural foods and products has also made me more conscientious of my surroundings and helping the planet.

    I love Organic products because they are better for my baby. She has very sensitive skin being so fair and we have just had a better overall experience using organic products.

    I prefer to use natural products on my baby because of my baby’s sensitive skin. I’ve also read about babies having sensitivity to synthetic fibers so I just avoided those all together.

    We cloth diaper because it saves money.

    I prefer natural products bc it doesn’t cause issues such as skin allergies.

    I want to use natural products like
    Cloth diapers to reduce my family’s waste impact and because they are much much cuter :-)

    I prefer keeping as many chemicals as possible away from my family and there is less waste!

    I love my fluff! I have been using 4.0’s & flips for 3 yrs. my oldest had no issue at all with the 4.0’s. My 9 month old has a sensitivity to synthetic materials. So cotton prefolds in the flips are what I use. My cuter/favorite diapers are the 4.0’s. So I have to use what I have. He gets plain flip covers with the exception of the Jules. I do love my fluf butt & can see how much I saved by using cloth. So it is definitely worth it.

    Better for baby’s delicate skin, better for the environment. Better for me as I’m sensitive to chemicals.

    It is so nice not to have to buy and throw away the same products all of the time!

    I love not having chemicals touching my baby’s boday and that I can not add tons of garbage to the landfills.

    I LOVE cloth diapers (and other natural/reusable) items because it’s BAD to waste and it’s GOOD to use as many chemical free products as possible.

    Natural products are so much better for the environment and limiting the chemical exposure for my two girls!!

    My family has a history of very sensitive skin, so the more natural the better!
