After Reading This Article, I Want to Slap Myself

  • There's an article the Mom 4 Life posted on Facebook about cloth diapers and the advantages of them.
  • I stocked up on disposables when I was pregnant with each of my kids. I bought lots of diapers and never gave cloth diapers a thought.
  • I kept thinking, "I work full-time. We won't want to mess with cloth diapers!" I still sort of think that, but if I had to do it all over again, I may change my mind.
  • Aunt Terra to the boys, sister to me uses cloth diapers on her youngest. She started using them because her little boy Elijah had such sensitive skin to disposables.
  • Sure they take more time in washing and changing. Poops are messy too! When it was warm outside and Daddy was taking care of our own and our two nephews he'd just run outside and hose the poop off. He can't stand slushing around in the toilet.
  • The positives with cloth diapers do out weigh the negatives: They are way easier to potty train. Think about how early kids in cloth diapers used to potty train compared to now. Although there used to be more stay at home mom's too. Kids can feel when they are wet in cloth diapers.
  • You also save roughly over $1,000 using cloth diapers. That's if you buy the diapers. My sister made her's.
  • Babies have reduced diaper rash probably because cloth diapers are chemical free.
  • The biggest thing that I didn't know that is just crazy: Male infertility rates went up dramatically ever since disposables were used for most babies. It is thought that disposable diapers heat up boys testicles to such a degree that it stop them from developing normal. SODIUM POLYACRYLATE, which is linked to Toxic Shock Syndrome and can therefore no longer be used in tampons, is the super absorbent gel in disposable diapers.
  • I feel bad that I've used disposables and want Isaak potty trained as fast as possible. Luckily Mica did train earlier then most, and Isaak's working on it.
  • I think I'm going to buy some cloth training pants that are reusable.
  • I guess I can't slap myself over something I didn't fully know everything about. I didn't know about all the chemical's used, and the male infertility rates going up.
