Babies who wear disposable diapers rarely feel how wet they are due to the use of sodium polyacrylate. Sodium Polyacrylate is a chemical used to keep disposable diapers dry and is the same chemical that was banned from tampons in 1985. Your baby will recognise the feeling of wetness a lot better and know when it is time to use the potty when wearing a cloth nappy, because cloth nappies do not contain any absorbency gels.
In the 50’s it was estimated that 95% of babies were potty trained by eighteen months. Today, about 10% of babies are potty trained by eighteen months. How is this possible? In the 50s, pretty much all babies wore cloth nappies, whereas today only 5% does.
Over the past 50 years, the average age for a child to complete potty training has increased from 18 to 36 months.
The increased age of potty training can double the number of diapers your baby wears in a lifetime. The average baby wears about 2000 diapers in a year. Think about the consequences...
Happy Naps are easy to use, adjustable and can last from birth up until baby potty training time. Your baby could be potty training up to six months earlier compared to children who wear disposable diapers, which will speed up their independence and development too.
