Quote to defend cloth (re: Nappy Rash %)

Post by AbbeHG » Sun Oct 02, 2005 9:27 am

Next time someone mentions to you that Nappy rash is more prevalent with cloth nappies - here is a useful reference to put them right. Although American, I would say the statistics would be very similar in NZ.

Source: Sweet Cheeks Site www.sweetcheeksdiapers.com

Quote:
'In 1955, 100% of American babies wore COTTON DIAPERS, 0% wore DISPOSABLES, and 7.1% experienced DIAPER RASH. In 1991, 10% of American babies wore COTTON DIAPERS, 90% wore DISPOSABLES, and 78% experienced DIAPER RASH.'

SOURCES:
JOURNAL OF PEDIATRICS 1959, Vol 54 pp. 793-800 "Relationship of Peri-Anal Dermititis to Fecel pH" by Drs. Tamio, Steiner, Benjamin
CLINICAL PEDRIATRICS May 1991, Vol 30 Department of Internal Medicine & Pedriatrics, Loyola University Medical Ctr. "Newborn Chemical Exposure from over-the-counter Skin-Care Products" by Drs. Cetta, Lambert, & Ross

excellent! :) Just another stat to add to the 'backup' for the negative comments about cloth or excuses why they're not used. :)
