CLOTH DIAPERS

As I mentioned in my previous article, we have been debating what type of nappies we should use. The choice is wide: disposable diapers (e.g. classic Pampers), eco-friendly disposable nappies (e.g. Bambo Nature) or cloth diapers. Right now, we have decided to try the last option. It is the most eco-friendly option and if you use them properly, the chance that your baby has a diaper rash is lower than with disposable nappies. Yes, eco-friendly diapers are easy to use and free of harmful chemicals which is good for your baby but if you don’t recycle them correctly, they are not really ecological.

The other day, one of our friends found a Swiss company that operates in our area. They provide you with bamboo cloth diapers, pick up the dirty ones, wash them and bring them back to your house. Each baby has its own pack of nappies and they make sure that they do not get mixed someone else’s. I contacted the company and we will meet them in person to learn more about their services. I really prefer paying a reasonable fee than spending my evenings washing , hanging and ironing diapers. My sister, who has a 2-month-old baby boy has learnt how to use cloth diapers only now. At the beginning, she would use cloth diapers during the day and Pampers at night. Now, she uses only the cloth ones and is really satisfied. I hope we will be able to use them as well and be more conscious parents. On the other hand, when you have a look at the table below, you will see that both types of diapers have its pros and cons. I have to admit, the choice is not easy…
