Cloth Diaper – From Antiquity To Modernity

Index

In the time of our grandmothers and mothers, they could hardly use disposable diapers due to their high cost. Those who were able to know and enjoy this practicality left it to be used during medical consultations or even for longer walks and in daily life it was the cloth diaper that prevailed.

Buckets and diaper pails to wash, triple work compared to the life of current moms, but have you ever stopped to think about how much you spend on disposable diapers? And what harm to the environment do they do? What happens to them after being discarded in the garbage of our houses? And we answer you: Disposable diapers discarded in household waste end up in landfills and take an average of 400 years to fully decompose. In calculations made, a baby up to 2 years old uses around 3,000 to 6,000 diapers in this period, so imagine the amount of disposable diaper that is discarded daily ??? Weekly?? How much of this garbage is accumulated on our planet?

Aiming at a healthier planet and thinking about the future generation, the cloth diaper has returned with great force nowadays. But unlike those that gave mothers so much trouble and needed large amounts of the diaper itself for constant change, a new version of the cloth diaper was created, known as an ecological diaper. Similar to a disposable diaper and very similar shape, the ecological cloth diaper has waterproof layer and comfortable fit for legs and waist . And even better, it does not lose its size easily, as it was produced to accompany the growth of the baby until reaching its first year of life.

Advantages of Using the Ecological Cloth Diaper

In addition to being a material produced in Brazil and assisting in a powerful way in preserving the planet and reducing the production of waste, the ecological cloth diaper provides a huge savings in the family budget, since in a calculation made by mothers who adhered to this modernity has seen that 5,500 disposable diapers have been replaced by only 25 environmentally friendly diapers. A lot of difference, isn’t it?

In addition to the economy that is very large and exciting for dads’ pocket, the cloth diaper is made of anti-allergenic cotton that is extremely soft and comfortable for babies and does not require the use of diaper ointments, which is already another economy !! And nowhere near the ugly cloth diapers of yesteryear and now we can count on models besides being comfortable, beautiful and well elaborated with very creative designs. Some moms who adhere to ecological cloth diapers even combine the diaper prints with the rest of the clothes, obviously on warmer days that the baby can be more comfortable.

The ecological cloth diaper has an opening where the absorbent should be introduced and should be changed as needed, on average from 2 hours to 3 hours each change, depending on the amount of pee the baby makes. Some moms prefer to introduce the absorbent into the cloth diaper cavity, use it on top so that at each change the diaper is not dirty, especially in the case of coconut that can be easily discarded in the toilet, exchanging the dirty absorbent for a clean one ready, the fun can continue !!

It is worth noting that there are three types of absorbents to be used with the ecological cloth diaper: fleece, bamboo and micro fiber and only fleece and bamboo can have direct contact with the bamboo skin and are used in this more practical way to dispose of the coconut . Microfiber is not recommended for use outside the cloth diaper cavity, as it may cause an allergic reaction !!

The washing is simple and next to the cloth diaper come the recommendations , that the excess of pee should be removed before washing. You can wash them in the washing machine itself or simply and quickly in your hand, using coconut soap that in addition to leaving the diapers clean, odorless does not cause allergies to the baby’s skin. So if this question is too much work, it’s worth checking out !! Those who tried it approved and dispensed the old disposable diaper in the name of the environment and the economy !!
