Using and Caring for Your Diapers
Cloth diapers are environmentally friendly, cost effective, and safe for your baby’s skin. Whereas disposable diapers contain toxic chemical beads that absorb moisture, cloth diapers are made of naturally absorbent fabrics. As a result, parents switching from disposable diapers may find that cloth diapers need to be changed more often. Prompt changes will also help prevent diaper rash.
