Why All Natural Products Are Worth The Extra Expense
The whole point of holistic and natural parenting is to emphasize the natural and remove the harmful and toxic products from your child’s life. Why does it seem like baby products with all natural ingredients AND organic products such as 100% organic baby clothes and toys seem to be more expensive? Well unfortunately we live in a consumer driven society and because of this most families are more concerned with price than with the chemicals in the products that they buy. This means that consumer demand for relatively cheap items drives the market.
Although the natural movement is making great strides, it still is not enough to bring the price of all natural products down. Because the large manufactures cater to the desires of the general public who still demand affordable items above all else. Affordable, often means that there are more synthetic materials with chemical preservatives in the products to make them last longer. This way the product manufacture can produce large quantities that have an unlimited shelf life with no expiry date. Once again, saving people money. Sadly though, this also means that the substances are going to be increasingly composed of unnatural toxic ingredients. Studies have shown that pro-longed direct exposure to these ingredients can have harmful side effects such as allergens and even in rare instances cancer. So although standard substances like diaper rash cream, soap, and lotions that contain preservatives and other synthetic materials are cheaper they are not necessarily healthy. This is why parents need to look more critically at the ingredients list of the products that they buy. This way they can make an informed choice when choosing to which products they are going to expose their child too.
Questions To Ask Before You Buy:
- What are the ingredients?
- Do I know what all of these ingredients are?
- Is there an affordable all-natural alternative?
- Are the cents saved worth potential risks associated with exposure to this ingredient?
Remember, it isn’t just baby products like diaper rash cream, soaps and lotions that you need to look out for. You can find harmful toxins in all sorts of items that your child comes into contact with. I do not mean to scare you but cheap toys (plastics) and baby clothes may also have toxins that can be ingested or absorbed. Many of the products that you use in your home regularly such as laundry detergent, dish detergent, and cleaning products may also be hazardous to your families’ health. This is why it is extremely important for parents to be aware consumers who read and research ingredient lists. This does not mean that you need to go to an extreme and throw everything out. It just might be a good reason to look more critically at the products that you buy on a regular basis and consider some more environmentally friendly and natural alternatives.

Certain ingredients can encourage repelling in your diapers, causing leaks. This can even happen in disposable diapers with enough cream! One of the bigger culprits is fish oils and overuse of mineral oil. Avoiding these ingredients in favor of plant based oils and butters can help you circumvent this common issue with your diapers.
One of the biggest myths in regards to diaper creams and cloth diapers is that zinc oxide causes damage. Not true! Not only is zinc oxide perfectly safe for your diapers, it is the best ingredient for calming redness and inflammation on your baby’s irritated bottom.
For a safe, effective treatment, you want a cream like Baby Butz. Baby Butz cream is a cloth safe diaper rash treatment created in Canada with natural ingredients.
Cloth or Disposable, Which is right for you?
In 2012 when I was preparing for the birth of my son I did a bit of research when I was deciding between cloth and disposable diapers. At the end of the day we decided to go with disposable- a decision, which came down to convenience. We were renting at the time and the inconvenience of washing cloth diapers in a shared laundry just didn’t seem practical. I don’t particularly regret this choice, well except for when I am suffering from “cute cloth diaper envy” when I browse Etsy. Now, that we have purchased our own home (fully equip with new washer and dryer), I may reconsider my decision for baby number 2 if and when the time comes but for now we are happily using disposables.
One thing I did learn while I was “making up my mind” is that the real choice is what works best for you and your family. There are a lot of sancta-mommies out there who will swear and maybe even guilt you into feeling as if choosing disposables is “taking the easy way out”. With all of the information out there regarding the chemical composition of disposable diapers it is enough to make anyone think twice. However, despite the common misconception, there have been no studies that have shown the substances within diapers such as dye, gel, and dioxin to cause immediate harm.
Now, in my experience- I have found that disposables come with there own fair share of downsides. They certainly aren’t the most environmentally friendly product in the world and I won’t deny that they can certainly be expensive! Like I said before, my choice to go with disposable this time around came down to the reality of our situation but I see both sides of the argument especially now that we have converted to using mostly all-natural products in our home. That said I’d never be one to tell another parent what they should do BUT I did decide to include list of pros and cons for cloth versus disposable that may help you make up your own mind when choosing. Just remember that there is no “right” answer and both options make for healthy and happy babies!
- Comes in cotton, terry cloth, flannel
- There are cloth diaper rental services available
- They can save you money because they are re-useable
- A more natural and environmentally friendly way to diaper your baby
- Less absorbent, baby can feel when they are wet (great for potty training, bad for rashes)- Can use disposable liners to make cleaning easier
- You can buy them used
- Can be messy, because you need to clean them yourself
- If you are using disposable liners it can take longer to change your baby
- Lots of laundry! This can be tough on the electric and water bill.
- You have to carry poopy diapers around with you when you’re out in public.
-Family, friends and baby sitters may not be as keen to help out with diaper duties.
- Cloth diaper rental services can be expensive
-Easy to change anywhere because you just throw them out
- Come in a wide variety of sizes and styles for babies of different ages
- Extremely absorbent, keeps babies’ dry even when they can’t be changed immediately.
- Do not typically leak
- Manufactures often put out coupons, stores may also have sales
- Contain chemicals
- Are Not Very environmentally friendly (non biodegradable)
- Some babies’ may be allergic to disposable diapers
- Tabs can break of be pulled off by your toddler
- Ultra-absorbency does not let your child know when they are wet, this may make potty training hard.
No matter which you choose, cloth or disposable be sure to use Baby Butz diaper cream to heal a rash. Despite the common misconception all-natural zinc diaper cream is 100% safe to use on cloth and disposable diapers. It does not build up or damage your cloth diaper at all. In our next post we will debunk this myth and talk more about the natural healing properties of zinc.

Being a new mom was that happiest and scariest moment of my life! Well so I thought, until I realized that I would learn along the way and that the best way to find products that worked was to try them. I was and still am very careful of the products I use on my babies and kids skin.
