Many first-time moms asked me to suggest diapers which would be the best for their babies. Ideally, you should use simple cloth nappies for your baby, which you can change immediately after every pee or poop. Unfortunately, simple cloth nappies are difficult to handle when you are alone or you are a working mother. It makes the mom’s work cumbersome because you need to check baby’s nappy very frequently.
That’s the reason a mom invented the waterproof cloth diaper’ for the first time in 1946. Her first model of the disposable diaper was a conventional cloth diaper inserted into shower curtain plastic, as per Wikipedia. Later, Pampers were introduced as use and throw “disposable diapers” in 1951.
Today, the Indian market has many big brands who are selling disposable diapers at low prices to reach out to more and more moms. I have noticed that many lower-middle class families have started using disposable diapers because it’s convenient for them too… Simply use and throw.
I understand that many times we moms tend to rely on the things which look convenient and healthy for our kids, but in reality they might not be the right choice. I tried to ask many moms as to which diapers are best for their kids, but in most cases, moms were confused in deciding the best one.
Personally, I don’t promote disposable diapers because they contain chemicals like dioxins and sodium polyacrylate. Instead, I recommend using Reusable Cloth Diapers.
Here’s a comparison between the two:
Disposable Diapers Vs Reusable Cloth Diapers
|Disposable Diapers||Reusable Cloth Diapers|
|They are non-biodegradable. A typical disposable diaper takes hundreds of years to get fully decomposed.||They are healthy to use and better for the environment as well. Easy to wash and use.|
|They are for one-time use only, so the overall expenditure will be more on disposable diapers than reusable cloth diapers.||The cost of reusable cloth diapers is significantly lower than the cost of disposable diapers in the long run. (first 2-3 years of your baby)|
|They contain the chemical Sodium Polyacrylate, which is a super-absorbent gelling material.
This is what keeps the baby in a single diaper for many hours. Most diapers are bleached with a chemical called dioxin.
Hence, with the use of disposable diapers, we are exposing our babies to unnecessary chemicals and other health risks.
|It’s a toxin-free and chemical-free choice for your little one.|
There is no doubt that reusable cloth diapers are better than disposable diapers, but reusable diapers have their own limitations. It’s not very convenient for new moms to wash, soak, dry and then iron the reusable cloth diapers after every use.
To solve this problem, BumChum Diapers have recently launched BDiapers. These are hybrid cloth diapers that use a disposable insert which is chemical-free and biodegradable as well. The best thing which I love about the diapers range is that they sell the reusable diapers with matching T-shirts, which makes it’s a complete clothing set. BumChum hybrid diapers can hold both reusable and disposable inserts.
I am amazed to see the thought process, creativity and love that a mom puts in, to make a complete clothing set (reusable diaper cover, nappy pad and T-shirt) for babies. That’s why it is always said that only a mom can understand her baby well.
I ordered the BONNIE Diaper Set from BumChum to check the quality. This set has the BONNIE diaper cover, a little Bunny Foo-Foo print T-shirt and one insert.
BONNIE set has following items:
- A cotton/spandex designer diaper cover, in a pastel green colour. These do not require additional pants or any waterproof covers.
- An ultra-soft waterproof nylon pouch, that holds the nappy pads. The pouch attaches to the pants with Velcro.
- A soft reusable nappy pad(120 ml capacity) for the lounging-at-home time.
- A T-shirt, sold with diaper covers, made from 100% soft cotton fabric. It has a wide neck and soft-arm elastic for easy wearing and removal. It comes with a super cute little Bunny Foo-Foo print.
- This diaper cover can hold reusable as well as disposable inserts. You can buy a pack of biodegradable disposable nappies separately. Bio-soakers (disposable inserts ) are also available through the website.
