peaceful parenting: The Chemicals in Disposable Diapers

peaceful parenting: The Chemicals in Disposable Diapers: "By Noreen Kassem Disposable diapers seem to be a necessity in today's lifestyle of convenience and temporary items. Though they are common..."

Hey Dorene!
I recently started cloth diapering Lucia. When her tiny baby bottom went from red to a purple, blistered rash I decided that enough was enough, ditched the disposables and switched to cloth.
I don't want to badmouth disposables because I know they work for the majority of parents (they're still working for Max) but for those with super sensitive skin like my little girl, cloth is the way to go.

So what kind are you using? I have samples of lots of different cloth. I think I might even have a discount for some let me know!

I did a TON of research and decided to go with Best Bottom diapers I was using the same Birdseye prefolds that my mom used on me (amazing that she kept them for so long) but the whole folding thing just wasn't working out. I guess I needed something that was as close to disposables as possible since I'm so used to using them on Max.
I actually started my research via the Peaceful Parenting link on your blog. There are SO many options out there - the cloth diapering community is HUGE.
I'll stay in touch with you on how things are working out, I know you'll be able to point me in the right direction.
