Reusable and other eco-minded baby diapers are a healthier choice than disposable diapers. However all your choices can be confusing. Below is a little round-up that should help you easily sort out all your green diaper dramas.
FIRST DO YOUR RESEARCH:
ClothDiapers.com offers excellent advice about reusable diapers. From traditional prefold cloth diapers to tiny newborn cloth diapers to cloth diaper covers; you’ll get useful info on all of them. The ClothDiapers.com website also includes a great general guide to cloth diapering, tips about how to wash cloth diapers and more, all perfect for a new user of cloth diapers.
Our friends at Green Baby Guide don’t only blog about diapers, but they do often enough making their blog a great place for newbies to reusable diaper options and other green baby issues. In fact, the mamas at Green Baby Guide even wrote an entire book about green baby care – Eco-nomical Baby Guide; a book I highly recommend if you’re interested in cloth diapers.
