Earth Day Diaper Challenge from AMP diapers. Try Cloth and Win on Everything Mom and Baby {giveaway}

AMP diaper Stay Dry AIO

I was going to wait until Earth Day to post this but it is Easter Weekend and I have family flying in so I will be busy.  So busy that I will also miss The Great Cloth Diaper Change.

Part of this post is to talk about cloth diapers and why we use them and why you should give them a try.   Do Earth a favour this Earth Day and ease up on contributing to the landfill if you can or buy  disposables that can go in the compost. Delora is great brand.

First off I’ll speak briefly about The Great Cloth Diaper Change.  It is on April.23/11 and families all over the world are participating in setting a world record on how many bottoms will be changed using cloth simultaneously.  The goal, to spread awareness on cloth diapers. To find a location near you click here.

For more info visit them on Facebook.

Why we chose cloth

It was quite simple.  I got tired of contributing to the garbage and I felt bad about the ingredients in disposables and the rashes my son was getting.
It may take over 500 yrs for disposables to break down? Can they break down?  No one really knows for sure if and how long.  I’m sorry Earth.
My intent was to start off with cloth but I didn’t know where to start and the thought of cloth diapers and a new born were a lot harder to think about and do.  Being a seasoned cloth nappy advocate, when Baby #2 comes I will be able to handle nappy change head on.

I know cloth isn’t for everyone because of start up cost, the cloth lingo is confusing and well there’s about 30 seconds of grossness with the poops.  I am only beginning to understand the lingo myself and I’ve been doing it for 20 months.  
Ask  for cloth diapers in your baby registry.  On a tight budget?   You can also buy used diapers.

 Some staggering info on disposables and their contribution to the landfill is shocking.
Just how bad?  Check out these stats from Environment Canada:

Diaper Usage

  • In the first two years, the average baby will require between 5000 to 7000 diaper changes.
  • As of 2004, approximately 1.7 billion disposable diapers were used each year in Canada, accounting for 85 percent of the diaper market.
  • Before disposable diapers were introduced, all babies in North America were diapered in cloth. Within 10 years of the arrival of disposable diapers on the market, the number of cloth diaper users quickly dwindled to 10 per cent

Disposable Diapers

  • Over 4,000,000 disposable diapers are discarded per day in Canada.
  • Approximately 250,000 tonnes of disposable diapers are sent for disposal each year in Canada, according to 2004 figures.
  • Disposable diapers represent approximately 3 percent of the total quantity of residential waste for disposal in Canada.
  • Effluents from the disposable diaper manufacturing process (plastic, pulp and bleached paper) are more damaging to the environment than the cotton and hemp growing and manufacturing process used for cloth diapers.
The cons with cloth diapers?

Water and Air pollution to wash and dry them…Hmmm….Fresh water is a renewable resource. 
Check for water shortages in your area though.  Hang to dry in the warmer weather or get a rack for indoor drying.  So doing laundry contributes to air pollution not just washing your cloth diapers, all laundry.

This I found kinda silly from Environment Canada in the Cloth Diaper section:

AMP Stay Dry Liner
  • Another concern is the higher level of wastewater particulates associated with flushing away the contents of cloth diapers.  What waste water particulates? Liners maybe? The only thing that we flush away are his poops.   What about the flushable wipes for adults and children?  Is it fair to just limit to families who cloth diaper?
  • There are reusable liners, like AMPS stay dry liner . First I’ve seen and they are fleece. $12 for a dozen

* FYI, even with disposables you are supposed to knock the solids out.  Did you know that? 

Disposable diapers – human waste doesn’t belong in landfills, learn more here

What’s an easy diaper to start off with?  Well, when I first started I have no idea what all the abbreviated terms stand for.  That will be another post 🙂
However, I wish I tried AMP’s diaper All In Ones (aka: AIO) first rather than all the pocket diapers and such. The also dry quite quickly in the dryer, super absorbent and no need stuff and unstuff. It’s just like a disposable for newbies to cloth diapers.


Why?

Because they are super easy and work just like a disposable minus the garbage and chemicals against baby’s bits.  This is my day time diaper, we’ve never had a leak and he’s been them for about 3 hrs the longest.  I love cloth diapers because it is EASY. I am not leaving loads(no pun intended) in the landfill.  It only seems natural.  But that’s me.  Plus we’ve saved money and I get to reuse my soap because we use Eco Nuts to wash our diapers.
They are baby sitter, Dad and hopefully even Day Care friendly. They work the exact the same way as a disposable.  Seriously. Try one.  Just one to get a feel for it. $20 and can be used over and over again.

The super absorbent core is made up of 4 layers of micro-fiber for a soft squishy feel and quick drying time and has a hook and loop (aka velcro)
They are SUPER EASY.

So I challenge you this Earth Day. 
Make a change

Get a couple of these and give cloth a try.  In particular, AMP’s Stay Dry AIO for you newbies and you’ll fall in love with fluff (slang term for cloth diapers) 😉
We also have her fabulous AMP swim diapers. Would you want to wear soggy paper underwear when playing in wading pool? Think of that soggy, wet, heavy and yes..chemicals in those swim diapers.

Pre-Order your diaper here.  Pre-order SALE ends April.25.  
Order will be shipped out April.29 or sooner.  Until April.25, buy 6 and save 5%

    So I’m technically new to cloth- just started this week, but I started because my daughter has chronic diaper rash and this was my way to clear them up. I used to be the one to say “Oh I have no time for cloth” or “they are so much work” but after I learned the benefits, started figuring out what I need and what to do and the benefits to my daughter AND the environment, I’m already a fan!! And thanks to Erica- I’m starting my trip down cloth-lane 🙂

    I’m assuming it all needs to be in one mandatory comment?

    am i allowed to say all?? 🙂 prob not – so olive is nice and unique but ive been dying for an orange, too, so either of those!

    tip: resale value is great so dont be afraid to try different styles till you find your groove! perfect size and AI2 are trimmer but OS and fitteds rock overnight!

    I love the red color! So awesome!

    🙂
    I use cloth diapers so a tip I can give is that when prepping your new diapers you don’t have to do an entire separate load of laundry for 2 diapers. I do my diaper laundry every two days and when I get new diapers I just throw them in the load with my old diapers to wash 🙂 I can always wait one more day! (Same if I have to wash it 3 times before use).

    they have so many nice colours… it’s hard to pick just one, but i do love the red & chocolate

    My favourite colour of amp diapers is Lemon.
    I am due with our first child in September and would like to try cloth to lessen our environmental impact and to keep all of those nasty chemicals away from our baby that are found in disposables.

  47. Chrissy P | 22nd Apr 11

    I love the magenta AMP diaper! The color is gorgeous. I’ve been CD since my 12 month old was born… my biggest tip… once baby starts solids, get a diaper sprayer!! (And learn how to use it before attacking any particularly nasty dipes!!)

    I would like to try cloth diapering because there’s less waste (we don’t have garbage pickup where we live), and it’s nicer for your baby’s bottom! Also the colors are so cute, and how can you not like a fluffy bum?!? 🙂
    tannis_z at excite dot com

  75. Tannis | 23rd Apr 11

    I would definitely be willing to try cloth diapering. I think it’s all in your mindset, the “yuck” factor like you said only is a couple seconds per diaper change. And the ingredients in disposables is disgusting! Also, the cost of cloth diapering isn’t that much when you buy used and use the diapers for more than one child!

    I love the Red color. I also love that you sell Best Bottoms– they are great!

    My advice to newbie is to try not to get overwhelmed by trying to find THE perfect diaper with that first purchase. Diapers are just poop catchers, after all, and your baby will survive whether s/he’s wearing a bumgenius or a prefold and cover. Have fun experimenting with the different diaper types!

  86. Tara | 24th Apr 11

    feedback on your write-up: i think your tip to use reusable liners is a great idea for winter. i hate having stained diapers in winter b/c i can’t sun them, so this is a great idea. you could even cut up an old fleece sweater instead of buying new!

    I would choose the lime diaper. I’ve just started using cloth recently and everything seemed so overwhelming to me at first. I had never tried cloth diapers with my other two boys because I thought it would be difficult. Using the new age selection of cloth diapers available today is so easy and cost effective. It has helped my 3rd son who suffers from eczema and I’ve had no leaking or blow out. My favourite type is are the pocket diapers and I’d love to try a AIO.

    Favourite color: aqua (followed so closely by purple!)

    I am going to be a mom for the first time and I do not agree with what we are doing to our earth, I want to cloth diaper because I do not want to be part of the problem and I want to be able to look at my child in the eye when I teach him to be environmentally friendly. Plus I do not believe in putting all those chemicals against his little bum and also into the environment!
    Everybody keeps telling me it will be so hard! But I have to at least try, right?

    Thank you a lot!

    I already use CDs — my tip is to try several brands and styles before investing in many of one kind. Try several, even some that you don’t think you’d care for — you never know until you give it a try 🙂 ngiraldi @ gmail . com

    I like the AMP AIO in white
    It’s the economy (stupid) not you of course
    I cloth diapered my two, when we used pins and rubber pants. Best tip is to keep your fingers on the inside, if anyone get pricked it’s mama.

    I love your cloth diaper article Erica!!! Thanks for posting. One thing that totally shocked me about disposables is 9 out of 10 (probably more like 99 out of 100) people don’t know that you are supposed to flush the poop and then throw the disposable away. All the while, I thought it was common sense. I’m not sure how anyone uses disposables – I did when traveling and I felt so GUILTY throwing them in the trash – such a waste and so gross! Plus both of my kids were potty trained right at 2 years old. When kids wear disposables they usually don’t get trained until 3 or even 4 or later! Yuk! Thanks again 🙂

  127. Anna Muzzy | 26th Apr 11

    In response to “Coty’s” comment – don’t worry… it’s not hard at all. You wash the diapers instead of having trash can full of stinky diapers 🙂

    I would want a butter diaper.

    I am new to cloth diapering and want to do it for the health benefits for baby, and the environment. I just think if I can keep some diapers out of a landfill that my kids will have a little bit brighter future.

    I want to try cloth because it’s less wasteful and it reduces diaper rashes.

    I liked that your write-up was a one-page summary that would be great to use for someone who is considering cloth diapering. I am definitely interested in trying cloth.

    Love the aqua color. My best tip is to try a bunch of different kinds before you invest in a whole stash of one brand!

  138. Madeline | 27th Apr 11

    Re your review, I really prefer pockets to start because they dry so much faster, so are great if you are just starting a stash. Plus, the AIOs are so expensive!

    Love the Olive diaper but also LOVE the red AMP diaper!! So hard to choose!

    Tip: for over night diapers, rinse out any inserts the next morning, this will help curn the stinkies.

    My best tip for someone new to cloth diapering is to try just one of each brand to start until you find your favorites. Don’t go all out on one brand. And try a variety of styles. It’s nice to have variety in your stash. Also, It’s great if you can make a few friends that cloth diaper too so you can share in your excitement and have someone to ask questions and advice.

    my advice for people who are new to cloth is no to give up, especially if you have a front load washer. I had a top loader and it broke, so we replaced it with a front loader which makes cleaning diapers more challenging. I soak the inserts of my pockets in a pail before I do my rinse. It has helped a lot.
