Would you ever consider cloth diapering? Most of you wold probably say, "No way!"
I want to introduce you to a new way to use cloth diapers. No pins, no pails, no soaking, no folding , no leaks and no plain white cloth. Now, that should have your attention.
How wonderful are cloth diapers:
- Our diapers use snaps instead of pins so no more crying from poked fingers or baby skin.
- Instead of soaking just put the poo in the toilet throw the diaper in your wet bag or directly in the daily wash. Use warm water and rinse with cold. I recommend using Shaklee Get Clean Laundry Detergent and when you buy a Zoovs diaper you will get a free sample of this amazing detergent. Line dry in the sunshine or in the dryer on low to medium heat. High heat could melt the diaper.
- Our diapers are waterproof and no need to use diaper covers because we have adorable prints and you will want to show them off.
- Our inserts are very absorbent. No need to worry about leaking. You may have to remind yourself to change the diaper. You will also receive two inserts instead of one so if you feel you need to use two for extra absorbency.
- Would you love to save thousands of dollars? You can save thousands of dollars by switching to cloth diapers, and they can be used for more than one child. Using cloth diapers you would spend about $300- $400 to cover your child for the entire time it is in diapers.
Here's a little math to show you the savings. Let's say you spend 28 cents a diaper and you change your baby's diaper 8 times a day (you will usually change more than 8 times a day when your baby is younger, and less as they get a little older).
8 changes X 365 days = 2,920 changes
2,920 changes X .28 ( a diaper) = $817.60 a year spent on diapers.
So, by the time your baby is out of diapers, you've spent $1600-$2000 on disposable diapers!
You love your baby and want it to be healthy and strong. With cloth diapers you don't have to worry about chemicals and the side effects it can have on your bundle of joy! Do you know what chemicals are in disposables? Go ahead Google it and see what you find. Here is just a small glimpse of what I found.
SODIUM POLYACRYLATE -This is the chemical, added in powder form to the inner pad of a disposable, that makes it super-absorbent. When the powdered form becomes wet, it turns into a gel. It has been known to cause skin irritations, banned from tampons (why do they keep it in diapers??), and much more.
DIOXIN- This is the chemical by-product of the paper-bleaching process, using chlorine gas, in the manufacturing of diapers. Banned in most countries, but not the United States. It is a carcinogenic-cancer causing chemical.
TRIBUTYL TIN (TBT)- An environmental pollutant, considered highly toxic, that spreads through the skin and has a hormone-like effect in the smallest concentrations. It harms the immune system and impairs the hormonal system.
Are you convinced yet? Go ahead try it on for size and you will be addicted to a healthy, money saving, simple alternative to disposable diapers.
