I want to help the community I serve as a birthworker know how easy it is to shift into reusable cloth diapers & support them in that decision.

I chose cloth after my loving sister always raved about how my darling niece has never, ever had one diaper rash, ever! My little sweety on the other hand, was always getting rashes from her disposable diapers. I also wanted to save money. I feel badly for not cloth diapering my first child. I still take pride in knowing that because of the switch, hundreds of less disposable diapers are sitting around slowly decomposing for my children's, children's, children's, etc... to be dealing with down the road. It is never too late to make the switch.

I chose cloth because they are better for the environment, it is less expensive in the long run, my sons bottom is less rashy, they are reusable, and I believe they are better in the long run.

I choose to cloth my own children because I wanted a healthier option. When looking into the chemicals that were being used in disposable diapers, I knew that was not a product I would want to use on my child.

I knew I wanted to cloth diaper with my second son, because I had seen enough for it to make absolute sense, and I had no desire to throw another 3 years of disposable diapers into already overwhelmed landfills. I didn't really know what I was doing at first, so it was a dive-right-in experience, and it wasn't until my son was about 8 months that I discovered a cloth diaper store in our town, ran out of the owners' front rooms in their home, so I spent ALOT of time on the web. Because of my research, I am even more thankful about my decision to use cloth, since the chemicals in disposables are quite frankly criminal and I am incensed that they are even allowed. I am also a single mom on a super tight budget, and I wouldn't have known what to do had I not known about reusable nappies. I am now impassioned to reach out to the impoverished areas in Memphis where kids are left in unsanitary and toxic diapers all day and educate families about REAL diapers and how much of a difference they make.

I started using cloth because I wanted to limit the number of chemicals that my daughter was being exposed to, but once I started I realized how much cheaper it is, how much better for the environment, and for our family. I also met the most amazing support group in our local Diaper Circle that has literally changed my life. I am so very thankful that we started using cloth diapers, I only wish I had done it sooner.

I chose cloth for several reasons, financial, composition and appearance. After looking through the numbers on what I could save, the choice was that much easier to make. I also was terrified reading about all the chemicals that are used in sposies. It didn't even cross my mind to look into organic sposies, and I began my cloth journey. After I started looking into specific diapers I began finding all of the adorable options, and my vain side has come out, I love the way my son's fluffy cloth diapered bum looks. The best decision was to use cloth, now it's normal and I can't imagine anything else!

I chose cloth, as it is better on the environment, better for my child and better on my pocket book.

I was first introduced to cloth when I went to a educational class at my local cloth diaper circle group. It was a lot of fun and informative and since then I have taken the steps to cloth diaper my own children. I cloth diaper because it is inexpensive compared to have to buy disposables every week. They are a lot more fun and I love showing my friends and family the cloth diapers that I use. Now that I have enjoyed cloth diapering my little ones I plan to start a group in Fairbanks Alaska to help others because there currently is no organization here.

Because they are better for the world, better for my baby, easy, fun, and less expensive than disposables.
