Organic Non-disposable Diapers For the last few decades, synthetic, disposable diapers dominated the diaper market, but organic diapers have gradually made their way to the forefront as a viable option for eco-friendly mothers. More and more companies are offering mothers the ability to use organic diapers on their babies. There are many benefits to organic diapers. One of the most prominent benefits is that they are more sensitive to a baby’s skin. Unlike diapers made of synthetic material, organic diapers are created naturally and are far less irritating to newborn skin. Some parents are even discovering that their babies suffer from diaper rash when they use synthetic diapers. Switching to organic diapers provides one solution for parents who want the best for their baby's skin. The Price Price is another benefit of organic, non-disposable diapers. The average family pays nearly $3000 on diapers during the first two years of the child's life. Organic, non-disposable diapers that are washable, reusable and long-lasting only cost a fraction of that price. Babies of eco-friendly moms on a budget choose non- disposable diapers for their cost advantage. The Environment Eco-friendly parents that want to be extra careful about keeping the environment less polluted may also consider organic, non-disposable diapers. Each year, billions of diapers are thrown into landfills. The average baby wears about 6000 diapers before they learn to use the toilet. Massive amounts of waste are eliminated when mothers opt to go green and use non-disposable diapers instead of disposable ones. Reusable and Washable The best benefit of organic non-disposables is that they can easily be washed and reused. The diapers are typically made of organic, natural fibers such as cotton, bamboo, hemp, soy fiber or wool. These fabrics feel good against a baby’s skin and can easily be washed with warm or hot water. Considerations Of course, there are some arguments against non-disposable diapers. Many proponents of non-disposable diapers believe that reusing diapers requires entirely too much time, electricity, and water. Other proponents simply don't like non-disposable diapers because they feel that the diapers are entirely too messy to handle. Fortunately, the organic diaper market has created a solution to these problems. Increasingly, reusable diapers simply require a pad-like insert that can be flushed down the toilet or even used as compost once soiled. This process makes non- disposable diapering even easier for eco-conscious mothers. Mothers who are interested in eco-friendly parenting should consider the many benefits of non-disposable diapers. Organic diapers can protect the environment while simultaneously helping parents save money. As the organic market expands, so will the number of parents who understand the many benefits of organic non-disposable diapers.
