Sadly and unfortunately, diapers have become synonymous with chemical-filled packets of plastic which provide momentary comfort of usage while causing long-lasting damages to the baby’s health and the environment.
As parents, we always strive to give the best to our children even if it means compromising on our own needs. The high popularity of extravagantly expensive disposable diapers across all strata of society is a live example of this fact. It is also commonly seen that modern parents are shamed by the elders for using diapers for their own comfort. The hassle of washing the clothes is nothing as compared to the discomfort a baby feels in the wet nappies. And in order to ensure a happy diapering experience and a good sleep without feeling wetness, parents go that extra mile to spend on these so-called “comfortable” diapers for their babies.
What parents are ignorant about is how the diapers are capable of providing the comfort that they do. The pee of the child is converted from liquid to gel by use of strong chemicals. These chemicals are really harsh on the baby’s sensitive skin. Moreover, to ensure that there are no leakages, these diapers are covered in plastic which doesn’t allow the baby’s skin to breathe any fresh air. What it results into is nothing different from the gas chambers that Hitler suffocated the innocent people in. And here what’s suffocating is the sensitive skin in the genital areas of your precious little baby. Some of them retaliate by showing rashes, to which the most common answer is another layer of chemicals in the form of diaper rash creams. Obviously all parents mean well for their children but genuinely lack the knowledge about the effects of these diapers.
Apart from the immediate effects like rashes, there are even more long-term concerns that one must know. The traumatic affair with chemicals could cause severe consequences like cancer, infertility, etc. The harm to the environment should also be taken into consideration. These disposable diapers are non-biodegradable and are estimated to pollute the landfills for centuries, say 500-700 years before getting wiped off from the face of our Mother Earth. And while they are still here, they continue to pollute the soil, air and even water. This essentially means that the environment that we provide to / leave behind for our kids is going to be nothing less than toxic. The air that they breathe, the water that they drink and use, the soil where their food grows, will all have heavy traces of chemicals.
So what is the solution to this grave problem? Our ancestors have been using the goodness of cloth nappies for babies since centuries. But they do not fulfill the requirements of modern comfort, for both- parents and babies.
Bums Up Baby Cloth Diapers is an initiative taken by moms who chose to find and share a simple-yet-powerful solution to this issue. We have developed cloth diapers that fulfill the modern comfort requirements without exposing your babies to even an iota of chemicals.
Bums Up Baby Cloth Diapers are made with a thoughtful combination of premium quality fabrics. They mainly consist of 100% Unbleached Organic Cotton. 10 layers of this natural and highly absorbent fabric provides these diapers with powerful absorbent capacity. The structure of these All-in-one diapers is such that the layers are divided amongst the main body and two-sewn-in flaps. This helps the diapers dry quickly after each wash. There is no hassle of attaching or detaching the flaps for using/washing. One of the 2 flaps is topped with a layer of micro-fleece fabric which can be used in case you wish to provide the stay-dry feel on the baby’s skin. This versatility is hassle-free and an important feature of these diapers. The outer layers of the diaper consist of polyester cloth and laminated cloth which prevent the liquid from flowing out while allowing the skin to breathe. What’s even better is that diapers can be used for babies right from their infant stage until they are toilet trained in their toddler years. The massive scope of size settings makes it possible for the diaper to grow with your baby. Once your baby is out of diapers, you can pass on the diapers to your next baby or sell or donate them. The diapers and accessories are designed and manufactured in India and are packed in cloth bags that are made by underprivileged women.
So the solution to providing a chemical-free and comfortable diapering experience is right here. Are we ready to take the plunge? The wisdom lies in putting your knowledge into action. For those who already use disposable diapers, it might seem like a huge step to change the lifestyle. But it really is a mental block which almost everyone faced before taking this huge step towards a win-win choice. But once you do it, there’s no looking back. Join the revolution and be the change you wish to see.
