  • I have been looking for some alternatives to disposable swim diapers online. I was tired of paying high prices for the disposable swim diapers that sit in the landfills for years after just one use. We tried letting my daughter swim au-natural but after a couple accidents in the pool we realized this wasn’t the best solution. I was extremely happy with the quality of the Kushies swim diapers that I was sent. Kushies is a environmentally friendly company based in Ontario, Canada, that offers over 350 high quality baby products, including the reusable swim diapers that I was sent. One thing that turned me off initially about reusable swim diapers is the appearance. I also always equated “reusable” with being lots of work to wash and maintain. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that neither were true! Both pairs of the swim diapers that I received were adorable and fit my daughter perfectly! The Mermaid swim diaper pattern is my absolute favorite. I assumed that I would use the swim diapers under my daughter’s normal swim suit, but these are cute enough to wear by themselves! The Kushies swim diapers are easy to care for. They are machine washable and can be tumble dried on low.

    This is called a pre-fold diaper. I love pre-folds for a lot of reasons. I can’t go into the details here, but I have a pamphlet on my website and lots and lots of videos on cloth-diapering. But let me just say to you the best thing about these diapers is they create what I call the "poop pocket." You will never have a poop issue, a poop accident when you use a flat diaper. And unlike the old days where they had to use safety pins, we have these wonderful products called Snappies, and literally all you do is pull on it like this, and it holds the diaper in place. So Snappies are super easy to use, make cloth diapering really fun. There are also alternatives like this, where it looks like, in a lot ways, a traditional diaper. It’s easy to put on. If you want to use cloth diapers, but maybe you have daycare or grandparents who don’t know how to use them, this is a really easy alternative. It just goes on kind of like a traditional diaper. It has these liners that you can snap in and out. So lots of great cloth alternatives. Another alternative to disposable diapers is what’s called elimination communication.


  • A lot of people cloth diaper because although there is a larger upfront cost, they are a much cheaper alternative to disposable diapers in the long-run. But the monetary savings, although a definite perk, wasn’t the driving force behind my desire to cloth diaper. My motivation was the 10,000 – 12,000 disposable diapers that go into the landfill with baby. Ugh. Gross. We need to take better care of our planet, darn it. And besides! Cloth must be better for the baby — who wants all those dyes and chemicals and God-knows-what constantly rubbing up against his most delicate area!

    Hi. Alegra from Ember Living, talking today about alternatives to disposable diapers. There are really three alternatives, and when we say "disposable diapers," we mean traditional, plastic diapers that are really hard on the planet and hard on resources, because they use a lot of resources to be made. The obvious alternative is cloth diapers, which I was cloth-diapered when I was a child. And there are so many better cloth diaper alternatives now than the traditional flat diaper that we probably all know and love. You know, this is what most people think of.
