The statistics are staggering — disposable diapers take up to 500 years to decompose, and switching to cloth can save hundreds of dollars a year — but mamas continue to use disposable diapers for convenience and save the cloth versions for burping. Today's cloth diapers are a far cry from the bulky terry cloth and sweaty plastic pants our grandparents used.

Bambino Mio is revolutionizing the washable diaper with soft, natural cotton nappies and cute covers that are more breathable than their disposable counterparts, allowing the skin to maintain a constant temperature. Touching and soaking soiled cloth is kept to a minimum given the Bambino Mio System's unique design. The biodegradable liner sheet, which retains solids and is safe to flush down the toilet, is placed inside the cotton nappy that is designed to absorb liquids without being bulky. Finally, the cover, a slim-fitting cotton, uses Velcro closures, rather than pins, for quick and secure fastening.

Depending on the frequency with which families plan to do laundry, switching to cloth can cut a household diaper budget in half each year. Not a bad way to cut down on expenses while helping clean up our environment!
