Why Cloth?

There are two completely different kinds of diapers in the world. One is a simple, three-panel rectangle of five to seven plies of soft and natural cotton. The other is a tremendously complex combination of heavily treated paper pulp, polyethylene (and other plastics), glues, dyes, synthetic perfumes, and -- above all -- a superabsorbent chemical, sodium polyacrylate, that absorbs urine and holds it in a "gel" next to a baby's skin. We think that if you see things from your baby's standpoint, and apply the same standards of comfort and health that you would for your own body, cotton is the obvious choice. But since some of the propaganda for disposables has focused on making cotton diapering appear to be a grossly inconvenient and messy practice suited to the turn of the last century rather than this one, you understandably may want to know what's really involved in cotton diapering care.


Isn't It Inconvenient?

Not if you use a diaper service and the modern, no-pins cotton diapering system (click here for details). With a service, for newborns all you need do with a used diaper is put it -- without rinsing -- in the hamper provided for your use. We come by twice a week to take the used diapers and leave behind a fresh supply of soft, safely sanitized cotton. Ruby's supplies a citrus freshener that goes in the hamper to prevent your home from smelling
