Perhaps you have made the decision to use cloth nappies for your bubba but unsure which type of cloth nappy to go for? There are so many different types of cloth nappies around, but why choose bamboo?
Bamboo nappies are naturally ORGANIC. Bamboo is organically grown. No pesticides, fertilizers or herbicides are needed to grow them. Which is great for parents who want to raise their babies using organic products, or to those whose babies have sensitive skin.
WE AIM FOR SUSTAINABILITY
Bamboo fabrics are considered the most sustainable eco fabric on the market. Its smaller carbon footprint is giving rise to its growing popularity. It is an environmentally functional material that reduces pollutant residue.
Bamboo is the fastest growing plant on Earth. Some species are known to grow up to four feet a day. Growing bamboo is considered a very clean and sustainable industry. As plants make food with carbon dioxide, water and sunlight, and bamboo grows so fast, it is removing a lot of carbon dioxide from the air and helping keep our planet healthy. As a fabric, bamboo plants require very little water compared to cotton (it takes up to 20,000 litres of water to produce 1kg of cotton). Which essentially means tons of water are saved when making bamboo products.
BEST FOR BABIES' DELICATE SKIN
Bamboo is a natural fabric, which makes it antibacterial, hypoallergenic, anti fungal and breathable. Tests have shown that when left to incubate on bamboo fabric, bacteria is reduced by more than 70 per cent.That means less bacteria, less diaper rashes, less odors. Bamboo diapers allow maximum air circulation and keeps the temperature down inside baby’s diaper, thereby reducing the risk of bacteria. It also has natural deodorising qualities and is perfect for people with skin sensitivities due to the lack of chemicals in the production process. It is thanks to these particular benefits, that bamboo is the fabric of choice for babies with sensitive skin! Its antibacterial properties also mean bamboo plantations rarely require pesticides, fertilizers or nutrients. It is easily laundered in a clothes washer and dryer or hung on the line for maximum bacteria control and freshness.
BAMBOO DIAPERS ARE SUPER ABSORBENT
Bamboo Diapers are generally more absorbent than man-made fibers, and they can often absorb up to 8oz of liquid, quickly too. This means less leaking. In fact, they can absorb up to 3x their weight in liquids, and they absorb 70% more than cotton. It is highly absorbent and wicks moisture away from the body 3 to 4 times faster than cotton, making it ideal for reusable nappies and pads. They are naturally porous, which helps with wicking moisture away from baby’s skin, thereby making it the perfect choice for baby’s with sensitive skin. It’s the go-to option for many cloth diaper moms and dads for overnights and heavy wetters because they’re also more comfortable to wear. Teamed with inner microfibre, our absorbent bamboo products are second to none. Disposable products that perform the same job can take hundreds of years to biodegrade due to the plastic contained in the product and are quickly filling landfill.
SOFT AND COMFORTABLE
Bamboo Diapers are even softer than other natural fabrics, like Hemp or Cotton. The structure of the bamboo fibres are smooth and round , which makes it a softer, more breathable and thermal regulating fabric than cotton, hemp, wool or synthetic fabrics, helping the body stay cool in summer and warm in winter. Bamboo cloth diapers are naturally more elastic and they can mold around your baby’s shape. This makes them more comfortable for baby to wear over long periods, and another reason why bamboo is often the cloth of choice for overnight cloth diapering.
Our bamboo as cloth diapers can be used from the time your baby is a newborn, till they are toddlers and ready to potty train, or even longer for bedwetters. Bamboo is extremely durable, able to withstand hundreds of washes, eliminating the need to purchase thousands of dollars of disposable products that do the same job. One Bamboo cloth nappy or pad will last as long as 150 disposable products. They wash and dry easily and no extensive washing routine is required. They’re ideal if you’re new to cloth diapering or even if you’re an experienced cloth diapering mom or dad. They’re also much appreciated Baby Shower Gift.
