Chemicals in Disposable Nappies
No-one can get away from the fact that disposable nappies contain chemicals. We know that many chemicals can be absorbed into the body through the skin, and as a baby’s skin is so much thinner and more delicate, many parents are uncomfortable with the thought of putting chemicals so close to their skin. This may be of particular concern to parents who have a family history of asthma, eczema or allergies.
Cloth Health Benefits
Along with avoiding the chemical issues related to disposable nappies, cloth nappies are also more comfortable for babies. Not only is the feeling of cloth on a baby's skin more delicate, but a well fitted nappy
can be more effective in preventing leaks.
