  • First off--unless you put your child in diapers when they hit puberty, the chances of disposable diapers being the cause of infertility is slim. Males due not produce sperm until puberty.

    yes, it has been suggested that this could happen, as plastic (which most disposable diapers are not plastic anymore) can raise the temperature of the area of the scrotum, but there has been nothing proven and as I said, as sperm is not produced until puberty, it is slim odds

    Second--If this is a concern, then yes, you can purchase cloth diapers at stores.

  • If this was true, then most men running around now would be infertile and obviously that isn't the case.

  • So you're telling me I screwed over my 5 year olds chance to reproduce by the time he was 3? Already? Well damn... guess I'll have some explaining to do for his future wife. Then again, I don't have to worry about teen fatherhood... *rolls eyes*
