postheadericon Bamboo Diapers: Good For Baby & Good For the Earth

Based on rough calculations, if you change your baby six times a day until the age of three, you will use over 6000 disposable diapers. Think of the impact on our landfills for families with more than one child!

With that in mind, many parents are exploring options for using reusable diapers made from a combination of bamboo and cotton with disposable liners. The big benefit of bamboo is that it is super absorbent and also hypoallergenic - not to mention the environmental benefits.

Bamboo diapers allow you to purchase as many waterproof outer shells as you require, so this can even work for super busy parents. There are many attractive designs available so you can mix and match with your baby's outfits. You simply insert a flushable, biodegradable bamboo/cotton liner and change and wash the outer cover as needed. 

Bamboo/cotton reusable diapers are perfect for delicate newborn skin, offering breathable fabric and soft elasticized waistbands and side tabs that can adjusted as your baby grows. Bamboo will keep your baby warm and dry, trapping wetness in the core and away from sensitive skin, with double gussets to prevent leaks.

Although disposable diapers offer a lot in terms of convenience, the environmentally-friendly aspects of bamboo diapers combined with the benefits to baby have many parents making the switch.
