How Cloth Nappies Make For Happy Babies

By Charles Moore

Has it ever occurred to your mind that a baby would use approximately 5,000 nappies before he/she actually knows to use the toilet? Did you know that it takes 200 years for one nappy to degrade? This means that if all of the 5000 babies were to use the disposable nappies then it would take a total of one million years just to degrade all of the nappies!

We all want to give the best to our babies but are we aware of the plastic nappies’ effects on our environment as well as the effect that they can have on our baby’s skin?

## Cloth Nappies Are Environmental Friendly!

The numbers show that disposable nappies consumed a total of 4% of the domestic trash for a family with only one kid and that it costs the local government hundreds of thousands of dollars each year just to get rid of these nappies. Rubbish dumps are filled with these nappies which really should not be the case since cloth nappies are perfectly environmentally friendly and a great alternative to stop filling the landfills with more plastic nappies.

There is no need to add to the world’s environmental problems when there are great alternative choices out there.

## Cotton Nappies Cost Less!

Cotton nappies give more value for money as they are reusable over and over again which makes them a far cheaper and better option, and although they may be slightly more expensive to purchase them, they’re a very good investment as compared to the plastic ones.

Many new mums need to save money wherever possible and not only are cloth nappies great for your baby’s health; they are also lighter on the bank balance.

## Cloth Nappies Are Healthy for Your Baby!

Disposable nappies that are not changed often enough cause an excess of moisture and this at the very least can cause nappy rash but at the very worst it can also cause yeast infections that can spread quickly. They contain chemicals that are as potentially harmful to your baby as they would be to the world we live in.

## Cotton Nappies Are Better For Your Babies!

Comfy cotton nappies do wonders on babies as opposed to prickly disposable ones that can cause sore skin and inflammations. They are very simple to be dressed in and to retain because they can be washed easily time and time again.

Cloth nappies work wonderfully for babies and they prevent rashes and sores from forming as well as having a positive effect on the environment in which your baby will be brought up in.

Thinking of switching to eco friendly nappies for your baby’s healthier skin? Visit for a wide collection of printed as well as plain cotton green nappies online!
