Cloth Diapers 101
WHY USE BABY LEAF ONE SIZE CLOTH DIAPERS ?
Cloth Diapers Are Healthier For Your Baby...
Disposable diapers contain sodium polyacrylate. If you have ever seen the gel-like, super absorbent crystals in a disposable, then you have seen this first hand. Sodium polyacrylate is the same substance that was removed from tampons because of its link to toxic shock syndrome. No studies have been done on the long-term effects of this chemical being in contact with a baby's reproductive organs 24 hours a day for upwards of two years.
Baby Leaf One Size Cloth diapers, on the other hand, are free of the many chemicals contained in disposable diapers.
Cloth Diapers Are Better For The Environment...Disposable diapers require thousands of tons of plastic and hundreds of thousands of trees to manufacture. After a few hours of usage, these used diapers are trucked away, primarily to landfills. When you consider the huge volume of garbage created, the toxic air and water pollution, and the potential health risks to children, it is very difficult to comprehend how washing and reusing cloth diapers could ever be considered an inconvenience. They are a rewarding investment all around - a financial investment, an investment in our children’s health and an investment in our planet.
Cloth diapers are more economical...The initial investment for Baby Leaf One Size Cloth diapers is more economical because the All-in-one size feature allows you to adjust the diapers’ size as your baby grows. This translates into more savings, since you don’t need to keep buying new sizes as your baby grows. Even after factoring in the water, detergent and energy used in laundering cloth diapers, it still comes out as the more economical choice.
Cloth diapers are convenient.

There is also no need for rubber or plastic pants like those you see in department stores, which are hot and do not breathe. Our covers are breathable and waterproof.
Cloth diapers are fun!
Baby Leaf One size cloth diapers come in fabulous colors and prints. Shopping for cloth diapers is like shopping for clothes. You pick out the cutest ones and cannot wait to put them on your baby! As your child gets older, he or she can also join in the fun and assert independence by choosing which print or color to wear.
Potty-training is easier.
Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to see 4 or even 5-year-olds still in diapers. This is because wearing disposable diapers makes toilet-training more difficult. When a disposable diapered-child urinates, the diaper still feels dry, and the child is unable to make the connection that peeing will result in getting wet and feeling uncomfortable. This also translates into more expenses, since parents have to buy disposable diapers for a longer period of time.
Cloth-diapered children, on the other hand, learn quickly that it is better to pee in the toilet than in their pants.
