What is Hemp Fabric
Hemp fabric is naturally anti-microbial. This means babies diapered in hemp will be protected naturally from bacteria, mold, mildew and fungus and that could mean less diaper rash! Also, due to the porous nature of the fiber, hemp is more absorbent than cotton and can breathe, so it's cool in summer and warm in winter. This means comfort! Hemp has been found to have 8 times the tensile strength and 4 times the durability of cotton, so diapers made from hemp will last longer and stand up to rougher use than cotton.
Hemp fabric is wonderful!
Hemp is actually a weed and therefore is grown without the use of pesticides and herbicides. It also wonderful for our environment!
Because hemp is more porous, it is more absorbent and durable than cotton. It is more breathable and is naturally anti-microbial. Hemp is also a natural insulator. It is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Hemp also wears in and does not wear out! It actually gets softer with every washing (like the old blue jeans - which were made from hemp years ago) It is also completely biodegradable. Hemp is truly an amazing fabric!

Another testominal from one of my readers:
After trying nearly every diaper out there, I'm happy to say that my baby is a Swaddlebees girl! These are our go-to daytime diaper. I switched from disposables at 12 months and found her clothes didn't fit well over most cloth diapers. I'm so glad I found these! I love the cotton velour. It's gotten softer in the wash and it doesn't feel cold and clammy when it's soaked like some natural fibers can.

Here are Some Myths about Cloth Diapers
When a parent considers using cloth they inevitably must wade through the mass of misinformation. No doubt these inexperienced parents hear that cloth are unsanitary, that they perpetuate unpleasant odors, leak profusely, and require a lot of back breaking work.
These parents though, can take comfort in the fact that these are all myths about cloth diapers. You can get the facts here:
Myth #1 - Expensive
It is estimated that using disposable diapers can cost you between two and three thousand dollars per child, from birth to potty training. That is an astounding amount of money to spend on what is essentially garbage. Cloth diapers, however, are much cheaper in the long run, even if the initial investment is more. It is entirely possible to diapered a child for 3 years for $100-300 dollars. These diapers will likely last for one or more subsequent children as well. Do the math, the numbers don't lie.
Myth #2 - Smell
Cloth diapers do not smell any more then a disposable diaper does. The smell that emanates from a cloth diaper thrown in a diaper pail can not be more offensive then a soiled disposable diaper thrown in a garbage can. Innovative new diaper pails and odor controlling accoutrements in a variety of sweet smelling fragrances have eliminated this problem entirely. Odors are also held at bay by using a dry pail method for storing soiled diapers, where diapers are not left to sit in stagnant and possibly malodorous water. With these new advances, there are no reasons why cloth diapers need to "smell".
Myth #3 - Are Hard to Care For
Many parents have adopted a dry pail method of storage. This means that they simply remove a soiled diaper, dispose of any solid waste by dumping it in the toilet, and then toss the diaper in a diaper pail until laundry day. While some cloth diaper users may still rinse diapers in a toilet or sink before putting them in the pail.
Here a testominal from one of my readers:
Before our baby was born, my husband and I decided to go with cloth diapers, because they are environmentally friendly. All our friends and family told us we were crazy. At first I thought that it would be much more work then using disposable diapers. Now I know that our generation was simply brainwashed by companies making disposable diapers. Its easy, and love that I can change diapers as often as my baby needs not thinking about cost. Now we can't imagine using disposable diapers for our son. Our son has never had diaper rash, and we love that his delicate skin touches soft cotton instead of "cheap" plastic. Cloth diapers adsorb so well, that sometimes I am not sure if it is wet or not!
