?Fancy diapers, my version anyway, are any cloth diapers. Diapers that are not filling our landfills at an alarming rate, diapers that are gentler on a baby's skin and diapers that are "cute"! Diapers are a topic near and dear to many new mothers. They listen to the horror stories told by their mothers and grandmothers and revel in the fact that they can have the best of both worlds. No longer is it safety pins and rubber pants; but velcro and designer water resistant diaper covers. The first diapers were leaves or moss in an animal skin. This is what was used for over a thousand years, except in the very warm climates where they babies went naked all year 'round. The first "modern" diaper came into existance in the 1800's and were huge rectangles of cloth that was folded to fit the baby's size. Rubber pants wasn't invented until after WWII! Today's diapers, my fancy diapers, began to be seen as early as the 1960's, but due to the huge popularity of disposable diapers, were never widely used. Did you know that the first disposable diapers still required safety pins? It's true! As more and more people are becoming aware of the danger that disposable diapers pose to our environment, the popularity of cloth diapers is growing. There are no facts in yet regarding the affect all those tightly (hopefully) wrapped bundles of feces and urine will have on the population when they do begin to break down, but I, for one, think we should all react BEFORE those reports start to come in. I can only imagine the billions of germs quietly "sleeping" away in the landfills. Fancy diapers can be the all popular Pocket Diaper that allows you to put as much filling in the pocket that your baby requires. Less during the day and more at night - as needed. All in one or AIO Diapers consist of the water resistant covering with the inner filling attached. It's a smart mom, however, who will add a little bit extra as their baby gets older and sleeps through the night. The Fanciest of the fancy diapers is the organic diaper. Made from natural fibers, these diapers are soft and gentle on your babies sensitive skin. There is one brand that makes a diaper out of bamboo and it looks so soft! It should make parents feel good that they can finally provide the comfort and safety that their baby deserves without harming the environment. You've come a long way, Baby! See some fancy diapers.
