Surprisingly, my hubby was the one who brought up cloth diapering our baby before she was born. I scoffed at him – he wouldn’t be washing diapers or scraping poop off cloth, so what did he care? Well, I decided to ask him why he thought that way instead of just laughing at his ridiculous statement. He expressed that he was actually concerned with the Earth for our baby’s sake – for the next generation. If we could reduce our waste, why shouldn’t we? Wow – I wasn’t expecting that response! I had no argument! So I looked into cloth diapers and decided at that time that it wasn’t for us. I felt it was very expensive to start up, plus I was really confused about which brand to purchase. Having a nanny care for my baby meant I would have to teach her how to cloth diaper and wash – which she wasn’t really up for. So we skipped the cloth and revisited it again when I became a stay at home mom.
His concerns still lingered in my head. He had a point and it was valid. There are a few disposable diapers out there that are eco friendly, and Earth’s Best is one of them. Earth’s Best diapers do not contain chlorine, and are made from naturally absorbent ingredients. They are latex free, dye free, and perfume free, plus come in sizes that range from newborn to over 35 pounds.
It is no wonder that BabyTalk magazine actually voted Earth’s Best diapers as one of the best eco-friendly diapers, stating that they caused fewer leaks than other brands. I tried these out myself on my toddler and I was pleased with how they worked. They were absorbant enough to use overnight and we didn’t experience any leaks with them.
