Are you living in the Toronto area and thinking about using cloth diapers? With so much information available online, it can be difficult to figure out exactly where to start. Cloth diapers have come a long way since your grandmothers tea towels and safety pins! The modern reusable diaper comes in many sizes, fabrics, and beautiful prints. The truth is cloth diapers are simple to use and offer many wonderful advantages for the environment and your wallet. I enjoy using them so much that I'm offering a free cloth diapering 101 workshop for expecting parents in Toronto. During this workshop we will discuss everything from what you need to get started to how to care for your diaper stash. Join me for this one hour crash course and walk away with the knowledge and confidence you need to get started.
Here's a few good reasons...
Cost of cloth $300-$1500 / per family
Cost of disposables: over $3000.00/ per baby
Help lower your babies carbon footprint by using cloth. It is estimated that each disposable diaper will take 400 years to decompose in ideal landfill conditions. Using cloth will greatly decrease your environmental impact and make a difference for future generations.
Gentle on Babies Skin
Cloth diapers now come in many soft and gentle fabrics that are naturally absorbent. Fabrics such as hemp or bamboo are very absorbent without the use of chemicals. Because babies who are in cloth diapers are changed more often they tend to have less diaper rash.
Simple to Use
All it takes is a extra load of laundry every couple of days. Clean up is easy with flushable liners and diaper sprayers. Learn lots of great tips on washing and storing your diapers in my workshop!
