How does diapering with Judes work? Simple.
In three steps, you'll save 1 ton of plastic waste.
Change like disposable diapers.
The Judes Poo Paper is disposed of.
Hygienically wash with the Judes Wetbag.
Judes is the most recommended cloth diaper
in Germany and Austria since 2021.
Why Babies and Parents Love Judes
Our Poo Paper catches the baby's stools. It separates the stools from the diaper and is then disposed of - just like with disposable diapers.
Our Poo Paper is a thin paper made of cellulose. It is completely compostable.
Tip: As long as your baby isn't eating solid food yet, you can also omit our Poo Paper.
We designed Judes so that washing and drying are as easy as possible.
You collect the used Judes in our diaper bag. When you're ready to wash, you simply put our diaper bag along with the diapers into the washing machine. You don't need to touch the used Judes a second time. The Judes diapers will automatically come out of the diaper bag during the washing cycle.
You wash Judes normally at 60°C (140°F) and 1000 revolutions, like your household laundry. You can air dry them or use a dryer.
Washing takes 15 minutes per week (including hanging and taking them down).
That is about as much time as shopping for, stocking, and disposing of disposable diapers.
We conducted a survey with over 2,000 parents. Some used disposable diapers, others used Judes. The result: The time spent with Judes was reported to be less (about 20 minutes a week) than with disposable diapers (about 30 minutes a week).
By the way: Children who use Judes typically become diaper-free almost 1 year earlier than children with disposable diapers - this is also the result of our survey. Research also suggests that diapering time with cloth diapers is shorter than with disposable diapers.
No, because it works similarly to disposable diapers. Our Poo Paper catches your baby's stools. When removing the diaper, the stools are easily separated from the inner diaper. Like a disposable diaper, you throw away the Poo Paper together with its content.
The inner diaper goes into the diaper bag. Once the diaper bag is full, you put it along with the diapers into the washing machine. Therefore, you don't have to handle the used diapers again. The Judes diapers come out of the diaper bag automatically during the wash cycle.
Everything gets hygienically cleaned in the washing machine.
By the way: Storing them in our diaper bag is odor-neutral. This surprises many because disposable diapers are known for their diaper stench. This is because disposable diapers are stored airtight in diaper sacks or diaper pails. This leads to unbearable odors in the house. Our diaper bag, in which the used diapers remain until washed, allows for air circulation, so the bathroom remains odor-free.
Many of our parents even report that Judes hold up better than the disposable diapers they used before.
Why is that?
The super-absorbing chemicals in disposable diapers can store a lot of moisture but not quickly. So, with heavy wetters or explosive breastfed baby stools, a portion of the liquid drips off and leaks away.
Organic cotton naturally absorbs extremely quickly, so Judes also provide good leak protection with milk stools and heavy wetting.
We use an innovative weaving technique that is extremely absorbent. Judes hold up so well that they can be worn both during the day and at night. Additionally, both our inner diaper and the cover have cuffs at the back and legs, which act as a double barrier.
No, the normal size clothes fit with Judes.
A slim fit was very important to us when developing Judes. The fabric for our inner diapers is specially woven for us: It is exceptionally thin while also being absorbent! Thus, we have managed to ensure that Judes do not make as bulky a diaper butt as many other cloth diapers. To be fair, though, it must be said that Judes still have more volume than a disposable diaper. However, with most babies we tested Judes with, the regular pant size still fit.
Judes are definitely thinner than other cloth diapers.
With Judes, there's no folding or pressing necessary, it's all self-explanatory. That is exactly why we founded Judes.
Our standard is that you won't need an instruction manual.
Yes, it's very simple.
Judes are designed to be both leak-proof and space-saving. Thus, you can store the used Judes in our small diaper bag and then wash them at home with the rest of the diaper laundry. Daycares also like to use Judes.
How it all began and why it almost failed
Is there anything more beautiful for parents than the certainty that their own child will go through life happy, confident, and healthy? Our hearts swell at the thought. When our son was born...
The real reason why diapers are dirty
A family spends €3,000 per child on disposable diapers and generates 1.2 tons of plastic waste. Every disposable diaper, that has been produced since 1949, still exists. Disposable diapers cannot be completely incinerated. The remaining toxic mass is encased in concrete and disposed of in former mines.
