Debunking the Myth: Cloth Diapering in Hot Temperatures
Beat the heat with Rumparooz Cloth Diapers
As the temperature rises and the sun blazes, parents often find themselves caught between the desire to keep their baby comfortable and the ongoing debate of cloth vs. disposable diapers. One common misconception that needs to be addressed is the belief that cloth diapers lead to overheating in hot weather. We’re here to bust that myth wide open and shed light on why cloth diapering might actually be the best option. Let's explore the truth behind this misconception and dive into the fabrics that make cloth diapers a breathable, comfortable choice.
The Myth: Do Cloth Diapers Make Babies Hotter?
Many parents hesitate to choose cloth diapers in hot temperatures due to the assumption that they can cause their babies to become warmer than if they were wearing disposable diapers. This belief stems from concerns about the thickness of cloth diapers and their supposed lack of breathability. Well, this isn’t the 60’s anymore and baby’s aren’t wrapped in vinyl covers.
Advancements in cloth diapering technology and the materials used in Kanga Care cloth diapers have made these concerns vastly outdated.
Breathable Fabrics for a Cool Experience
The key to comfort in cloth diapering during hot weather lies in the fabrics used to craft the modern Rumparooz one size cloth diapers and covers. Let's take a closer look at some of the breathable materials used by Kanga Care that are redefining cloth diapering:
- Microchamois: This fabric is a game-changer for cloth diapering in hot temperatures. It's buttery soft texture provides a gentle touch against your baby's skin, while its breathability ensures proper airflow. Microchamois helps wick away moisture, keeping your baby dry and comfortable even in the most sweltering conditions. Microchamois is also hypoallergenic, making this stay-dry fabric a favorite amongst parents that have babies with sensitive skin.
- Corn Spun Polyester: Another innovation that makes cloth diapering a breeze in hot weather is the use of corn spun polyester. This material is not only environmentally friendly but also highly breathable. It allows air circulation, preventing trapped heat and maintaining a cool and soothing experience for your little one.
- Biodegradable TPU: This waterproofing laminate is microporous allowing water vapors to pass while still keeping the wetness of a saturated diaper locked inside. Something the plastic layers of a disposable diaper can’t do. The breathability of a Biodegradable TPU backed fabric will keep your little one cool while also being sensitive to the environment. Bio-TPU uses a heat and pressure process combined with ground water safe glues to make a permanent bond with the outer fabric that becomes a diaper cover or shell. This waterproof material is also used in the Kanga Care wet bags and changing pads.
- Organic Bamboo Velour: Bamboo is known for its moisture-wicking properties and excellent breathability. The velvety softness of organic bamboo velour feels luxurious against the skin and contributes to a cool and cozy diapering experience.
Advantages of Cloth Diapering in Hot Weather
Contrary to popular belief, cloth diapering offers numerous advantages over disposables when it comes to keeping your baby comfortable in hot temperatures:
- Breathability: As discussed, the breathable fabrics used in modern cloth diapers ensure that air flows freely, reducing the risk of overheating.
- Moisture Control: Cloth diapers with moisture-wicking properties help keep your baby's skin dry and irritation-free without the use of harsh and toxic chemicals that can sometimes be the source of the rash themselves. Modern cloth diapers are designed with high-performance stay-dry fabrics, preventing discomfort in hot and humid conditions.
- Reduced Chemical Exposure: Cloth diapers eliminate the exposure to potentially harmful chemicals found in disposable diapers, which can be especially important during periods of increased sweating. The chemicals in disposables pose a range of known risks such as cancer, disrupting the endocrine system, interfering with the reproductive system, causing 3rd degree burns, and many more.
- Eco-Friendly Choice: Choosing Kanga Care cloth diapers is a sustainable choice over disposables and drastically reduces your carbon footprint, making cloth diapers an environmentally responsible choice for both hot and cold seasons.
