    This is a great idea. One question: Is this PUL material biodegradeable? I mean, even if it isn’t, it’s still better than going through a million disposable diapers. But it does defeat the purpose a little bit if it’s still going to be sitting in a landfill for the next two-million years. Just wondering.

    I made a bunch of diapers for my daughter out of old flannel sheets. I#ve been using them for almost a year now and I’m pretty happy with them. Instead of the PUL you can also make diaper covers out of soft felted wool sweaters. There are tutorials for this on the net.
    The best thing about making diapers out of recycled material is that you can use them in combination with disposables without having too much of a guilty conscience. My daughter gets disposables for the night since they keep dry until the morning and when we leave the house for a longer period. But I never need more than 40 or so a month, I can live with that…

    Totally love the tute! Did want to add, though, that the greenest option for baby waste is to flush it just like adult waste. Babies are born potty-trained, you know. Elimination communication rocks!

    Kudos to all who use cloth diapers. This is an awesome idea. And Elimination Communication, that’s out of this world. It isn’t for everyone, I realize, but good for those who pull it off.
