Rakker, if you didn't want to start an argument you should not have posted. If you would like to debate it please do so on the Cloth nappy thread. My post was not an "I'm better than you post" so you can keep the cloth diaper champ remark to yourself, I find it offensive as I know it was not used in a commending way. But for interests sake to the other readers i've added my rebuttle but I will not debate it further on this thread.

Your baby will spend about 25,000 hours in diapers and need about 6,000 diaper changes during the first years of life. Your decision to use disposable or cloth diapers, will have a great impact on your baby’s comfort and health, and on your peace of mind and finances.

Chemicals in Disposables

Since your baby will spend so much time in diapers, let’s take a closer look at disposable diapers. On the market since the early 60’s, the disposable diaper changed from a plastic diaper with a lot of paper fluff to a diaper constructed of a waterproof plastic outer layer, an absorbent pad with super absorbent chemicals, and an inner liner. The super absorbent chemical, sodium polyacrylate, absorbs and holds fluids in the diaper. This chemical has been linked to toxic shock syndrome, can cause allergic reactions, and is lethal to cats if inhaled. Death has occurred from ingestion of just 5 grams of this chemical. Pediatric journals contain reports of this chemical sticking to babies’ genitals. When the baby’s skin gets wet, this super absorber can pull fluids from baby’s skin. Dioxin, the most toxic of all cancer-linked chemicals, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), is a byproduct of bleaching paper. Even in the smallest detectable quantities, dioxin has been known to cause liver disease, immune system suppression, and genetic damage in lab animals. Dyes found in some disposables are known to damage the central nervous system, kidneys, and liver.

The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received reports that fragrances caused headaches, dizziness, and rashes. Problems reported to the Consumer Protection Agency include chemical burns, noxious chemical and insecticide odors, reports of babies pulling disposables apart and putting pieces of plastic into their noses and mouth, choking on tab papers and linings, plastic melting onto the skin, and ink staining the skin. Plastic tabs can also tear skin, and disposables may contain wood splinters.

According to the Journal of Pediatrics, 54% of one-month old babies using disposable diapers had rashes, 16% had severe rashes. A survey from a leading disposable diaper manufacturer shows that the incidence of diaper rash increases from 7.1 percent to 61 percent with the increased use of throwaway diapers. Widespread diaper rash is a fairly new phenomenon that surfaced along with disposable diapers. Reasons for more rashes include allergies to chemicals, lack of air, higher temperatures because plastic retains body heat, and babies are probably changed less often because they feel dry when wet.

On the other hand, cloth diapering is natural. No chemicals.

Okay!
I'm loving the pnp nappies! Thanks so much for the recommendation guys! (you guys rock)
Also will be checking out the earthbabies nappy sale, because all though I would LOVE to use cloth, I have never had R1000 to put toward starting up a stash and that's if you choose the right one from the start.

I am also using the Pick and Pay brand and am loving it. Its cheap, lasts long, no leaks, strechy sides, cute pictures on it.

I can honestly say I prefer them over Huggies Gold and pampers

Have tried the PnPay nappies and will buy them again... I still love the Pampers premium nappies best, but Pnpay nappies much cheaper..

O damn, so Jude peed right through my new love of nappy.. I really thought this could be the 'one'. They seem so much comfyer. Great fit, SOFT, super stretchy sides, SOFT, thin..
Then this morning, big puddle on bed!
*snif, snif, snif*
So now it's back to crispy bulky smhuggies and having to waste every other nappy cos the side has snapped off.

I have bought almost every type of nappy on the market, and have found that the sooner I accept that ALL nappies will leak from time to time, I will be much more happy! :)

I think what happens is, is that the elastic on the edges doesn't have a tight fit when the baby moves a certain way creating an opening where the wee leaks out.

Just my theory.

Agree with Gloei here. A couple weeks back K had a fresh nappy on. was sitting on grandpa's lap and weed and it all came out! So it was just about how she was sitting that it escaped.

But I am a pampers user, and K wees a lot. And in the mornings her nappies are full full but never leak. I'm amazed.
The only time we have accidents is when the nappy she is using is getting too small for her.
