FREE CLASS: HOW AND WHY TO USE WASHABLE DIAPERS
Reusable diapers are back, and they have evolved a lot since the big muslin squares with safety pins. In the 21st century there are a lot of different systems, with velcro or snaps, easy to use, and with a paper liner to throw away the poo. Figuring out what system to use can be quite complicated though, but Anne from de Billenboetiek will guide you through it in this informative session. He used cloth diapers with both his children and has a lot of inside knowledge and experience, and will tell you all about the advantages (better for the environment and the baby’s skin, a lot cheaper, no poo explosions in the clothes and easier for potty training) compared to disposables.
Here also a link to a movie to get a feeling about the topic.
