  • ~*Nope*~... they only fill landfills, and I had more issues thinking cloth diapers were the way... like rashes!!! I will never do anything other than disposable, regardless of what someone uploads to YouTube to cause drama

  • skin allergies to the chemicals or what they are made of.

  • Yes of course - skin allergies because of the chemicals put into diapers. Not to mention I am sure there is a study about baby boys losing their fertility or sperm count thanks to disposables!!

  • I suppose the chemicals in them can't be good but I have never personally researched disposable diapers. I cloth diapered my son.

  • My Mom could not use them on me, they broke me out in a horrible rash every time she used them.

    Answer by Peajewel at 11:20 PM on May. 26, 2011

  • Yes there are.

    Answer by aj23 at 12:57 AM on May. 27, 2011

  • Yes there are- diaper rashes being the #1. However, I don't think any research has really been done into the lasting effects from the exposure to diaper chemicals in the long term. :/
