Everything about your baby is adorable almost to the point of being edible! Those feet, those cheeks, and of course that cute little, dimpled bum. The outrageous love you carry in your heart for every part of this little human makes you fiercely devoted to their wellbeing. Which is why you’re here. You want to make sure that every product you use is only going to nourish your baby, not bring even an ounce of harm to their precious skin or system.
When it comes to nappies, you know that choosing the right one is important because it’s the one thing that your baby is on constant contact with. You want to find a brand that not only works well and captures wetness, but that is also 100% safe for your babe to wear every moment of the day. This article is dedicated to giving you the facts about nappies, so that you can choose wisely.
Choosing eco-friendly, chemical-free disposable nappies or cloth nappies are much better for your baby — and the health of our planet. In fact, you’re probably 100% in agreement with that. But it’s always a good idea to refresh our memories as to why they’re better and safer.
WHY ARE ECO DISPOSABLE NAPPIES AND CLOTH NAPPIES BETTER THAN MAINSTREAM NAPPY BRANDS?
Dioxin has been classified as a carcinogen (eek!) and is what is used to bleach nappy material so that it’s nice and white.
Phthalates are what make plastic more flexible and are used to waterproof the outer layer of nappies, yet they are endocrine disruptors which negatively impact hormone balance.
2. Nappies populate 30% of landfills.
3. Clean, green nappies are safe and effective.
4. Clean disposable nappies are better for the earth.
So you can feel much better about using these vs. their conventional counterparts.
