Cloth diapers for babies: Is it a right choice?

Hello mommies,

How are you and your lil baby? Hope he is doing well with his diapers. But do you feel diapers are good for babies health? I would say no as it has chemicals in it which effect baby’s skin.

According to studies, diapers convert pee into a gel. But if we talk about cloth diapers, they do not have such chemicals which can do so. Cloth diapers are chemical free. You try to choose baby cream or oil, free of chemicals than why not you do so in case of diapers. It is observed that male babies who wear plastic diapers may face infertility problem in future as plastic diapers raise scrotum temperature which lead to infertility problem later in life. If we talk about baby girl, you already know how sensitive baby girls are. So diapers are not safe for both gender.

Advantages of cloth diapers:

  • Chemical free
  • Reusable
  • Eco friendly
  • Rashless
  • Skin friendly
  • Economical for long term 
Cloth diapers are very useful

PHTHALATES are hazardeous

Phthalates are endocrine disrupting chemicals which effect the health. Diapers contain such harmful chemicals in it despite government rules to avoid such harmful chemicals. 

Diapers are Not Safe

Phthalates easily enter in the genital parts of body and can cause hypertension, obesity and reproductive problems. Our skin absorb the chemicals through dermal absorption, so any hazardeous chemical which enter into the body has adverse effects.

Phthalates also transfer to the environment through the diapers. Many studies shows that diaper impact the environment badly.
