The data is clear. Even including the manufacturing and washing of Judes cloth diapers, after 3 years of diapering, you will have saved on average:

  • Over 40,000 liters of water.
  • Over 1,000 kg of plastic waste.
  • Over 400 kg of CO2 equivalents.
  • Approximately 2,000€ in diapering costs.

How sustainable are Judes Family's cloth diapers really?

Is it not complicated?

We ourselves were once frustrated by complicated systems. That's why we founded Judes.

With Judes, there is no need for complicated stuffing, folding, and washing out. The entire concept of Judes is centered around one goal: Simplicity in everyday life!

We assert: When you look at the whole picture, diapering with Judes is even easier than with disposable diapers.

Is it not time-consuming?

Many find this surprising:

Washing Judes takes 15 minutes per week (with a dryer, only 4 minutes).

For disposable diapers, you need an average of 30 minutes per week when considering shopping and taking out the trash.

This is the result of a survey we conducted with thousands of parents who use disposable diapers.

Save Time with Judes

Doesn't Diapering sustainably diapers take longer?

Yes, changing with Judes takes about 5 seconds longer. But overall, the diapering time is significantly shorter with Judes.

Studies show that children in disposable diapers need to be diapered for a longer time.

We then conducted our own study with more than 5,000 parents. The result: On average, children become diaper-free 8 months earlier with Judes than with disposable diapers.

We also found out: Nearly one in four children is diapered for more than 4 years, many even longer than 5 years (with disposable diapers).

This is the business model of disposable diaper manufacturers: The longer the children wet themselves, the more revenue they make.

Is it not unhygienic?

Disposable diapers are made of polyester and polyester is less breathable than our organic cotton. Disposable diapers are also stored in air-tight diaper bags or pails, leading to unbearable odors in the home.

Our Poo Paper catches the poop and is disposed of.

Our diaper bag, where the used diapers stay until laundry day, is not air-tight. The air circulation keeps the odors neutral in a natural way.

Why Judes are especially hygienic

Isn't it inconvenient when out and about?

Indeed, Judes cloth diapers can be wonderfully used on the go, at daycare, or while traveling.

Daycares are enthusiastic about Judes because they are so similar to handle as disposable diapers, and caregivers do not need to adjust to a new routine.

Many parents specifically buy Judes for long-distance travel so that they don't leave any waste from disposable diapers in vacation countries.

With our specially developed diaper bags, using Judes on the go is absolutely possible and easy.

Do Cloth Diapers Provide a Good Leak Seal?

We can only speak for Judes: Our parents say that they hold up better than disposable diapers.

Why is that? The superabsorbent chemicals in disposable diapers can store a lot of moisture, but not quickly enough. As a result, the liquid often rolls off with torrential pee or splashy breast milk stool.

Judes are made from organic cotton - and cotton absorbs liquid extremely fast.

We have developed an innovative weave that is both thin and very absorbent. Judes provide leak protection for up to 12 hours and can also be used overnight.

Why Judes Are So Leakproof

Do cloth diapers cause a bulky diaper bottom?

Indeed, many cloth diapers create a bulky bottom. This bothered us as parents and inspired us to develop Judes in a completely different way than other cloth diapers.

Thanks to the innovative weaving, Judes are not only extremely absorbent but also very thin, which makes them sleek and snug-fitting.

Why is this so important? Not only does your baby still fit into regular clothing sizes, but daily activities such as breastfeeding, sleeping, crawling, and playing are more comfortable for both mother and child.

Why So Many Dads Love Judes

I understand the concern that cloth diapers might not work for us and we end up bearing the costs.

We, as parents ourselves, have experienced the feeling of being left alone after purchasing a large package of cloth diapers.

From this experience, it is important to us that we continue to support you after your purchase in accompanying your child through potty training.

Included in your Judes set is our coaching service. After your purchase, you'll gain access, allowing you to reach out at any time with questions about diapering with Judes, diaper-free time, and potty training. Many parents report feeling very well supported and are glad to have the opportunity to get in touch with us anytime.

It is important to us that our interests and your interests as a dad are aligned.

We need to choose either Judes cloth diapers or disposable diapers.

We have designed Judes to pair wonderfully with disposable diapers as well.

For instance, if your partner prefers to continue using disposable diapers, or if you use them for nighttime or while out and about, it's not a problem.

Judes are so similar in use to disposable diapers that no adjustment period is necessary.

For this purpose, we offer our "Part-Time" and "Small" sets.

Frequently Asked Questions about Judes

Our poo paper catches the stool. It separates the stool from the diaper and is then disposed of - like with disposable diapers.

Our Poo Paper is thin paper made from cellulose. It is completely compostable.

Tip: As long as you baby isn't eating solid food yet, you can diaper without our Poo Paper.

We have designed Judes in a way that makes washing and drying as easy as possible.

You collect the used Judes in our diaper bag. When you want to wash them, you put the diaper bag in the washing machine along with the diapers.

This means that you don't need to touch the used Judes again. The Judes diapers automatically come out of the diaper bag during the wash cycle.

Washing takes 15 minutes per week (including hanging up and taking down).

This is similar to the amount of time required to buy, put away and throw out disposable diapers.

We have conducted a survey with over 2,000 parents. Several of them changed using disposable diapers, other with Judes. The result: Judes were shown to be less time-consuming (circa 20 minutes per week) than disposable diapers (circa 30 minutes per week).

Also: Children become diaper-free on average 1 year earlier with Judes than with disposable diapers - this is also backed up by our survey. The research shows that the total diapering time with cloth diapers is shorter than with disposable diapers.

No, because Judes work similarly to disposable diapers. Our Poo Paper catches your baby's stools. When taking off the diaper, you can remove the stool very easily from the inner diaper. Like with disposable diapers, you simply throw the Poo Paper away with it's contents inside.

The inner diaper goes in the diaper bag. If the diaper bag is full, you put it in the washing machine with the diapers inside. This means that you don't have to hold the used diapers a second time. Judes diapers automatically come out of the diaper bag in the wash.

Everything gets cleaned out hygienically in the washing machine.

By the way: Storing diapers in our diaper bag is odor neutral. This amazing many people because disposable diapers are renowned for their stench. This is because disposable diapers are kept in an air-tight in diapers bags in diaper buckets. This leads to unbearable smells in your home. Our diaper bags, in which used diapers stay until the next wash, allows air to circulate so that the bathroom remains odor neutral.

Many of our parents even said that Judes hold up better than the disposable diapers that they used to use.

Why is that?

The superabsorbent polymers used in disposable diapers can store a lot of moisture, just not quickly. Therefore, with heavy wetters or milk stools, a portion of the liquid drips off an leaks away.

Organice cotton naturally absorbs extremely quickly, so that Judes also hold up well with heavy wetters and milk stools.

We use an innovative weave, which is extremely absorbent. Judes hold up so well, that they can be worn both during the day and the night. Additonally, both our inner diaper and covers have cuffs at the back and the legs, which act as a double barrier.

No, with Judes, clothes fit in normal sizes.

A slim fit was super important to use in the development of Judes. The material for our inner diaper is weaved specially for us: it is especially thin and still 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. For the vast majority of Babies who tested Judes, the normal pants size still fitted.

Judes are definitely noticeably thinner than other cloth diapers.

Our promise is that you will not need an instruction manual. With Judes, nothing needs to be folded or pressed, it's all self-explanatory. This is exactly what we founded Judes for.

Yes, it's very easy.

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.
