BRADLEY COUNTY BREASTFEEDING SUPPORT GROUP MEETING – AUGUST 2011

 

PRESENTATION: Why Cloth Diaper? By Syvannah Jones

1. Saves money!

ñThe average family spends $1,500-$2,000 a year depending on the cost of diapers.

ñIt will cost (at most) $300-$450 to start your cloth diaper stash. This will last from birth to potty training! AND can be used again and again with other children for FREE!

2. Eco friendly

ñEach year, 18 billion diapers are thrown away in landfills, taking around 500 years to decompose. They make up 1/3 of the items in landfills.

ñEven if you wash diapers every 3 days, you are using around 50-70 gallons of water, a renewable resource, which is the equivalent of someone flushing a toilet 5-6 times a day! And, the manufacture and use of disposable diapers amounts to 2.3 times more water wasted than cloth.

3. Earlier potty training

ñBefore disposables existed the average child was potty trained at 18 months, now the average is 40 months!

ñBabies feel the wetness in cloth diapers, whereas they don’t as much in disposable diapers with chemicals to aid in absorption of fluids.

4. Sensitive Skin

ñMany children have sensitives to diapers or wipes due to chemicals used to aid in absorption causing rashes. Many of these chemicals are banned is some countries.  A recent study revealed that some of these chemicals are being linked to low sperm count later in life in males and are causing issues with testicular function (www.realdiaperassociation.org/diaperfacts.php).

See Syvannah’s blog at: http://www.mymommydiaries.com/category/cloth-diapering/ 

Also, for other ideas, type “cloth diaper trial” in your search engine to give cloth diapering a trail run in your home! (See June 2011 notes.) You may also find it beneficial to search different “types of cloth diapers.”

HOT TOPIC FOR THIS MONTH: Protein Allergies

 

Mom’s in the know in our support group have started a list below of resources to help other Moms of babies with protein allergies. Many, many thanks to the Mom(s) who compiled this SUPER resource!!!

Protein Free Diet

www.Allergyeats.com helps you find nutrition/allergy information for restaurants in the area if they have a website.

http://www.sophiesafefoodguide.com: this website lets you find grocery items in the store free of the items that you select.  It lets you search cereals for free but is $3 a month or $30 a year for 97 different food items.
