Dirty Diapers

Lets talk diapers for a minute...

Aedan has been having a couple days of "cleaning out" and Ive changed more than a weeks worth in just a couple days. when this happens, I of course feel sad for my son who's insides won't let him rest, but I even feel more guilty for the mark it leaves on our planet.

Baby's go through a tonne of them, well more than a tonne if you want to be literal. I'm environmentally conscious and wanted and hoped cloth diapering would work for us.... Several yeast rashes later... it didn't cloth just holds too much moisture close to the skin and the PH of urine isn't very friendly to my baby boys sensitive skin.

So pampers is what we use...

I just found out about gdiapers.

They are a cloth-disposable hybrid, the insert is flushable and biodegradable, compostable liner inside a cotton washable diaper pant and my curiosity is peaked.

I'd rather not continue to litter landfills with my sons diapers that may see 5 centuries beyond me.I hope to use them , that they are kind to Aedens posterior and I'm hoping to find a local(ish) retailer, as for me, it's just not worth buying them online.... I'd rather run out and get some when the fancy strikes me.

Hopefully I can find them and they will be economical. But if they don't work out for us, hopefully some other mom or dad out there will see this on my blog, and try them, and help reduce waste in our landfills.

Wouldn't it be wonderful if other big brand diaper companies were this environmentally conscience?

I have to say that pricewise we just can't afford those g-diapers.. and the diaper services are also too expensive.. I shop with coupons, etc in terms of diapers.. but after we get Grace potty trained and don't have to buy the crazy fancy formula for miss reflux anymore.. that might free up some of our budget and we might try the gdiapers. I will probably buy in bulk off of ebay or something though.. if I can. Since you can save alot of money that way! But I posted about these on my site too, because I saw them here. I also hope that SOMEONE hears about it from me and switches.. eventually I hope that these are mainstream and cost-effective enough for everyone to use!
