For your baby’s health and comfort
If you use cloth underwear, why you put your baby paper or plastic diapers for 24 hours a day? The softness and comfort that a cloth diaper provides can’t be compared to a disposable diaper. Also cloth diapers being softer and leaving the skin of your baby to breathe, help to prevent diaper rash.
Diaper rash is a very common condition in infants that causes skin to get irritated, red, scaly, and tender. Often the rash occurs because the skin is irritated by carrying the dirty diaper too long, having the diapers too tight or because the baby’s skin is sensitive to certain brands of detergent, soap or baby wipes. The plastic diaper also prevents the flow of air inside, creating a warm, moist environment is an ideal breeding ground for the proliferation of fungi and the formation of rashes.
For our Planet
A child spends 124 diapers per month which equates to 4464 diapers over his life! 50 million disposable diapers are used every day, most disposable diapers are not biodegradable.
In addition, disposable diapers takes the 3rd place in the more pollutant articles list, every year more than 30 million trees are felled in the world for its manufacturing. An important part of the contents of the disposable diaper is plastic, which is not recovered and in white disposable diapers there is also an important content of chlorine used to whiten. According to the Women’s Environmental Network, based in Britain, some estimates show that the plastics in diapers can last up to 500 years.
Our diapers, being reusable, contribute greatly to the ecology of our planet. Few times in your life you can do something so significant for the ecology

Because our children learn faster
It is a fact that children who use cloth diapers learn before to control their sphincters, and with less effort by their parents. The basic reason is that when they wet a cloth diaper, they noticed it immediately. With disposable diapers, is likely that they do not realized what is happening to their body because they feel nothing.
Because Cloth Diapers don’t contain chemicals
