Why Is Cloth Better For Your Baby?
- Wouldn't you rather have soft cotton next to your skin instead of plastics?
- Disposables contain sodium polyacrylate which becomes gel-like when wet. A similar substance was used in tampons until the 1980's when it was revealed to increase the risk of toxic shock syndrome.
- Most disposable diapers contain traces of Dioxin, an extremely toxic carcinogenic chemical, listed by the EPA as the most toxic of all cancer-linked chemicals. It is banned in most countries, but not the U.S.
- Disposable diapers contain Tributyl-tin (TBT) a toxic pollutant known to cause hormonal problems.
- Disposables increase the temperature near your baby's skin. This increase in temperature with prolonged use of disposables may result in affecting normal sperm production.
- Babies in cloth diapers potty train faster resulting in increased independence and confidence.
