I Love Seventh Generation Diapers
My plan was to cloth diaper. That didn't happen this time around. Then I found these. With just a little shopping around, I found these to be very economical, convienient, more environmentally friendly, and safer for my baby girl.
Did you know that there are toxic, cancer causing ingredients in name brand diapers? Do you know the effects of chlorine bleach (which is used to bleach name brand diapers so white) on your skin. Not to mention that your baby's body heats up that chemical..
Dioxin, which in various forms has been shown to cause cancer, birth defects, liver damage, and skin diseases, sterility, and genetic damage, is a by-product of the paper-bleaching process used in manufacturing disposable diapers, and trace quantities may exist in the diapers themselves. Dioxin is listed by the EPA as the most toxic of cancer related chemicals. Disposable diapers contain Tributyl-tin (TBT) - a toxic pollutant known to cause hormonal problems in humans and animals... No studies have been done on the long-term effects of these chemicals being in contact with a baby's reproductive organs 24 hours a day for upwards of two years. Studies have also been done to show that the chemical emissions from disposable diapers can cause respiratory problems in children.
I have found that I can buy a case (4packages) of Seventh Generation diapers at http://www.1800diapers.com/ for about $35.00 (that includes shipping) or Babies R Us now carries a nice selection of Seventh Generation products in their stores.
