hhhmmm, I didn't know this...


did you know that you are supposed to dump the poopy doopy from your babies diapers into the toilet? ...somehow my husband came to me the other day and asked me if I knew this, now I think of myself as a pretty in-the-know kind of mom, but "what!?" Here is how it reads on the side of the Seventh Generation diaper pack "flush the waste, not the diaper! When you're throwing away a used diaper, empty the waste into the toilet, wrap the diaper tightly, and throw it away. Keeping human waste out of the landfill is safer for all of us." There is also some good information on the "'bad things" of chlorine...don't want to bum you out so I will leave it to you to read up, on your diaper packaging! There is also a step further you can take and look into G diapers! I think they sound terrific, (but I'm a little nervous about our rickety old septic system). send me your comments on what diapers you use...the good, the bad and the ugly!

ooh...i didn't know that! i also heard that it's no good to bundle up diapers when you through them out. they decompose in the landfills better when you just leave them open.

I didn't know that one...I just assumed this with cloth, not disposables! I loved fuzzi bunz cloth diapers when I used them.
