    Default cloth diapers

    So I went on ebay and found this great deal on all in one cloth diapers for
    my soon to be born son. They were used and a lot of people on ebay buy used
    cloth diapers, in fact they are a hot commodity on ebay since they are so
    expensive to buy them new, oftentimes there are 10 people or more bidding on
    just one auction and there are listings for hundreds of auctions of sellers
    selling their cloth diapers. I used cloth diapers on my dd as well. I use
    disposable when we go out and about because i find that cloth diapers leak
    and yes I use the velcro or snap contour diapers not the ones with pins, I
    cant stand the ones with pins. Anyways, when I told my husband I bought
    them on ebay and they were used he was completely disgusted that I would use
    them on our newborn. He thinks that there could be viruses in the diapers
    that could infect our child. I thought this was riduculous but thought I'd
    see if any of you have heard that before. I mean baby poop and pee is baby
    poop and pee, thats it its all gross. I will wash them with some bleach the

    first time and then rinse them several times with vinegar to make sure they
    are sanitary, I dont see a problem. Is there anyone out there that can
    imagine problems with this? I called our dr office to ask as well and the
    nurse said she never heard of viruses in diapers and that viruses need
    something like moisture to live on and that bleach kills just about
    everything. She even asked the other dr's and nurses. Kathy

    Based on that theory of virus lving in them, babies would be
    constantly sick. If they were sick one time and any virus passed
    thru and ended up in the diapers, they would be constantly re-
    infecting themselves, wouldnt they. Sheesh.

    Most people wash their cloth diapers thoroughly enough that there are
    no germs left. Between the hot water, soap, bleach (for those that
    use bleach) and the dryer (or clothesline), any germs are either
    washed away or dryed to death.

    Personally I would probably use a little bleach the first time too,
    just for my own peace of mind. Remind your husband that after NEW
    cloth diapers are used one time then they are USED!

    Remind your dh of diaper services that reuse diapers again and again. Hot
    water and bleach will render them sanitary.

    I cannot imagine that these diapers could have any viruses in them. I
    used "used" cloth diapers and never gave it a thought as I had washed
    them in HOT water with a suitable bleach. Never had a problem at all.


    Thanks!

    I can't see any problem at all. Virus don't have long lives...
    When cloth diapers were the only thing on the market their
    was concern when they were washed at a LandryMat for
    the next person using the washer...but even then it was only
    a concern...people wern't falling over in the streets from baby
    poo bacteria.

    You can also pour some liquid Lysol in clothes you get for the first time
    from rummage sales, etc. That really kills everything, especially if you
    can't use bleach in the load or hot water.

    I see absolutely no reason for alarm after all how does used diapers you own
    differ from the ones you get from a diaper service? After all they aren't
    giving you *new* ones every time they pick up and drop off? )
