Do you care about the environment and appreciate the beauty of nature? Is sustainability very important to you? Cloth diapers are the greatest alternative in that case.
Not only will your trash can be lighter, but you will also help protect the environment and, most importantly, you will save money.
Your child may even begin using the potty sooner.
Cloth diapers can indeed be pollutant-free and environmentally friendly, depending on the manufacturer.
You will also avoid a sore diaper bottom by using cloth diapers.
So it is not surprising that the selection is enormous. After all, it's about the future for our children and their children. Your grandchildren. This world should be preserved for as long as possible. It takes about 300 to 500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose. So would you rather burn it? And 5000 or 6000 times per child? Nobody would like to think about that.
There are now wonderful systems to make wrapping with fabric easier. These are also suitable for fathers. Just to make it clear: it's easy. You can even order a diaper service. So it can be up to you whether you wash it yourself or have it washed. That then costs a little more.
On the one hand, you help the environment by avoiding the massive mountain of rubbish generated by disposable diapers, and on the other hand, cloth diapers are said to make babies less sore.

Changing diapers with disposable diapers is usually considered to be easier and more absorbent. When the diaper is full, it can be disposed of hygienically. A new diaper is placed on the bottom and you don't really have to do anything else. Bought in a maxipack, you also have a generous supply of diapers.
The disposable diapers are significantly thinner compared to cloth diapers and still more absorbent. As a result, the babies often do not notice when they have peed in the diaper. It feels quite dry in spite of a full diaper, which is good for the child's bottom, but not so beneficial for knowing when to change it.
A big advantage: your child is dry for longer at night and usually sleeps longer than a child with cloth diapers.
The “ecological” diaper could perhaps be described as a hybrid of the two diapers. The manufacturer's promise: the diapers are made from renewable raw materials. One brand even promises that you can put the diapers in the organic waste bin or in your own garden on the compost heap after use. However, this could possibly put a good neighborly relationship to the test. ?
Due to the fact that no chemicals are used (certain manufacturers), some of the ecological diapers are particularly skin-friendly and also suitable for children with neurodermatitis.
Some families use a mixture of the different diapers. So it has proven useful to use cloth diapers during the day and a disposable diaper for night time.
By the way, wound protection cream is not only used if your baby already has a sore bottom. You can put a very thin layer on the well-dried baby bottom for prevention as well. Of course, some of the cream ends up in the diaper! But especially if you know that you will be on the road for a longer period of time or you cannot change diapers while driving when your sweetheart has a full diaper, a creamy bottom serves as better protection.
By the way: Even with small scratches or pimples,wound protection cream containing zinc oxide with anti-inflammatory effect helps!
