Start unwrapping with Judes now

With Judes, you'll rethink the whole diapering concept.

The Tesla of the Diaper Industry

The most recommended cloth diaper since 2021 in German-speaking countries - 20,000 parents are diapering with Judes - Judes Babies have already prevented over 117,000kg of plastic waste The most recommended cloth diaper since 2021 in German-speaking countries - 20,000 parents are diapering with Judes - Judes Babies have already prevented over 117,000kg of plastic waste

Judes is challenging the entire diaper industry.

Judes cloth diapers offer clear advantages over disposable diapers, without the drawbacks of typical cloth diapers.

They are significantly more sustainable, healthier in the short and long term, save parents time, and have the potential to save up to €3,000 per child. They are also easier to use than conventional cloth diapers.

Disposable diapers are surprisingly expensive per child

Shopping is not only exhausting, but parents also spend a lot of money on common diaper brands.

Children diaper-trained with disposable diapers often take significantly longer to become diaper-free compared to those using cloth diapers. Nearly one in four children need them for 4 years or more. Thus, after just 3 years, the cost is about 3,000€, and after 4 years, it reaches 4,000€.

By the way: We haven't even considered the costs for society and future generations due to the waste here.

Judes Compared to Cloth Diapers

Judes costs are significantly lower

Even when taking washing costs into account, Judes are significantly more affordable.

For example, the washing costs for our largest set are only €150 for the entire typical diapering period with Judes.

By the way: You don't need expensive disposable diaper products like wet wipes for Judes. You receive all that in your set - but sustainable and made from natural materials.

How We Calculated the Costs

Save Resources with Judes for Your Child's Generation

These might not be costs that you bear directly. However, they are costs that arise – especially for the generation of your child and grandchildren. The data is clear. Even including the manufacturing and washing of Judes cloth diapers, compared to disposable diapers you save on average after 3 years of diapering:

  • 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 cloth diapers, really?

Judes are an investment in your child's health.

We perceive Judes as a long-term investment that pays off multifold for both parents and their child.

To give you a few examples:

  • With Judes, your child often experiences fewer sore or dry spots on their skin. This saves both time and nerves.
  • With Judes, your child becomes independent sooner, as they can go to the toilet on their own at an earlier stage. This is a fundamental act of autonomy when it comes to the basic need of using the restroom, which makes your child more self-reliant and confident in the long run.
  • Judes promote "wide wrapping", which is especially beneficial for the natural development of the hips.

Why Judes Are Healthy

Diaper-Free Sooner with Judes Family

Studies show that children using disposable diapers need to be diapered for a longer period.

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

We also discovered that nearly one in four children are diapered for longer than 4 years, many even beyond 5 years (with disposable diapers).

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

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.
