Why I Cloth Diaper!

Let's start with noting a very important fact...The SKIN is the largest organ in the body. Our skin is porous which translates to: everything we put on our bodies is absorbed directly into our blood stream and then transported to every organ, tissue & cell!

So, why is this important? Well...disposable diapers contain millions of tiny little gels that are laiden with chemicals (to make them super absorbent). These absorbent gels become activated when the diaper gets wet. This makes for less frequent need for a diaper change... so a baby can sit in a "wet" diaper for a good 4 hours or more without leaks! Woohoo you say less work for me don't have to change my baby as often!!! Well during that 4 hours the chemicals that have been activated by the babies urine are now seeping in through their bottoms and flowing throughout their entire system. So maybe I have to clean a little poop out of a diaper every once in a while but I'd take swishing a poopy diaper any day over having my sweet babies body exposed to all those chemicals!! These chemicals are one reason those sweet little bottoms end up with diaper rash! (There are other causes for diaper rash too...yucky baby wipes, nursing mother's diet...we'll get into those in another blog.)

My FAVORITE solution to the diaper rash problem...Young Living's TENDER TUSH Ointment... made with 100% Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils!! The only thing that gets put on my babies sweet tushie!

Ingredients in disposable diapers:

polyethylene and polypropylene plastic with bleached paper pulp,
AGM (a gelling substance),
stearyl alcohol,
cellulose tissue,
elastic, and

As with everything Cloth Diapers have also evolved and they are SUPER CUTE, and EASY to use. There are so many different choices of styles and colors, the possibilities are endless. There truly is something for everyone!! Get a couple and try them! I promise you'll love it!


  1. What are the essential oils in 'Tender Tush'?

  2. Sandalwood, Blue Tansy, Rosewood, Roman Chamomile, Lavender, Frankincense & Cistus (Rose of Sharon) Also has Coconut Oil, Cocoa Seed Butter, Olive Oil, Almond Oil, & Wheat Germ Oil....These are ALL the ingredients. No fillers no nasty stuff!!!!

  3. Which of the cloth diapers do you prefer? Choosing one is my biggest dilemma!

  4. I've use several different ones and what I like with my daughter when she was a newborn (because she was so petite) were good old chinese prefolds and pins! I had snappi's too but I actually preferred pins. My son didn't fit well in them and I recently got some of the fuzzi bunz one size and I LOVE them! They actually have elastic in the legs that can be changed to grow with them!! I love that feature! I've tried Thirsties and hated them they leaked everytime! GroBaby was good as a newborn overnight diaper but after that I didn't like them. I also have some Happy Heiny's and I do like those also but the Fuzzi Bunz win over all! Of course you have to double stuff them at night! The all in ones (AIO's) are maybe a little more money but they are a bit easier. With my daughter I did use mostly non AIO's so a diap and a cover and that was great too but I'm really enjoying just stuffing them out of the dryer and they're on quick and easy. (snaps are preferred over aplix) check out www.cutiepoops.com I really want to try one of those just haven't gotten around to it yet, the suede really intrigues me!

  5. What I would do is pick 4 or 5 different diapers you're interested in and but 1 or 2 to try them and see what works best. Then you can make a bigger commitment and buy a whole bunch. So until you make a decision you may wash twice a day but that's ok, better than being stuck with 24 diapers you don't like!!
