Baby Things Review: Tushy Wushy Leakproof Diapers

tushy.jpgMy son Jed is going 17 months. Even as I was told recently by his pedia that he is healthy and as big as an average 2 and ½ years old, not being an 18 month old at that, I just felt overwhelmed with blessings despite the many things I had to go through recently, healthwise and otherwise.

One of the few things I am blessed with as a hands-on mother is getting across a reliable leakproof cloth diaper called TushyWushy,when Jed was around 6 months old. It was exactly what I was looking for! It is economical and environment friendly. I can never emphasize enough how helpful this innovative product has been to me even as I juggle parenting, reign as domestic goddess of our abode, and everything else I do in between.

Tushywushy is so convenient and since the time I switched Jed to Wushies, there was not a trace of rash on him. Why should I be surprised when using these cloth diapers would mean not having those chemicals come near my little one’s tushy? I am vouching for this product and I strongly believe that even as we nurture our little ones, we should also be reminded and get ourselves to imagine where all the those soiled diapers end up — in the dump. Earlier, I read that a disposable diaper actually would completely rot in 50 plus years. That’s just totally alarming! Even as we parents choose only what’s best for our babies, the more that we should choose to contribute to the slowing down of mother earth’s depletion, which will eventually benefit them and the generations after.

Plus what could beat its practicality and all! Allow me count (pun intended) the ways:

Disposables:

Pampers comfort: Php 7 x 12 (if you change every two hours) x 365 (days in a year) = Php 30,660/year

Pampers Baby Dry Php 8.25 = (same computation as above) Php 36,135/year

Prokids Php 6 = Php 26,280/year

EQ Dry Php 6 = Php 26,280/year

Huggies Php 9 = Php 39,420/year

Kimbies Dry Php 6 = Php 26,280/year

Drypers Dry Php 7 = Php 30,660/year

And even if you don’t change every 2 hours, it still amounts to a lot of money.

And that’s just one of the advantages! There is really no excuse for not using this diapering system. It may not be as easy as getting the nappies out of the bag and getting it under your child’s diaper area. The inconvenience of putting the absorbent pad inside the leakproof cloth with extra inserts for absorbency amounts to nothing if you’ll see all the advantages to your baby, pocket and to mother earth!

Here’s what I do. When I get the diapers washed and dried, I prepare them right on in a jiff and pile them up for next use. At first I was hesitant with having all the poop on a cloth and washing them so I used diaper liners, but now that Jed’s poop (sorry TMI, one of those blog posts that it can’t be helped) ;P is not sticky anymore (I stopped using liners), it plops right off the cloth and I flush it right in the toilet.

After close to a year of using this diapering system on Jed, I know I will always be an advocate of it, even as I continue to encourage young mothers like me to use Tushy Wushy. Now, it’s possible. We can divert that disposable diapers budget to our child’s future expenses. This really is a very wise way to economize, and believe me I know what I’m saying. I am a Filipino pastor’s wife living by faith. So I know this really came as a blessing to unburden our family from needless expense. 🙂
