So, you have decided to make the switch from disposable to cloth diapers. Congratulations! This is a terrific step toward maintaining a green home and saving money that would normally be spent on items that don't last. It may surprise you to know, too, that when it comes to cloth you have many option with regards to brands to try and styles of diapers. While most brands have similar features, you will discover that you have a choice of using covers and inserts made primarily of cotton or hemp. Which is best for your baby?
If you are concerned about reducing your carbon footprint, you should know using either organic cotton or hemp materials for your baby's needs are both okay. Proponents of hemp will argue, however, that growing hemp plants doesn't use up as many soil nutrients as cotton does, and therefore is a more efficient material to use for anything. If you are concerned about the stigma attached to hemp there is no need to worry. While hemp is closely associated with marijuana, products made from the plant used in cloth diapers contain no THC, so those qualities will not harm your child.
Those who have used cotton and hemp diapers for comparison have noted, too, that hemp may be the more absorbent of the two, and therefore more useful in keeping babies dry and free of mess and leaks. However, price and availability of hemp diapers in your area can be a deciding factor as well, though if you shop online you should be able to find what you need.
With hemp or organic cotton diapers, you cannot go wrong for turning your home and baby's nursery green.
