Same Handling as Disposable Diapers

No need to readjust.

Judes cloth diapers are as easy to use as disposable diapers. Thanks to the high-quality Velcro, they can be put on and taken off in seconds with one simple motion (same gestures as with disposable diapers).

Sometimes the partner might still prefer to use disposable diapers. With Judes, that's not an issue - the diapers are changed just like disposable diapers.

How Changing Works

Dispose of Hygienically Like Disposable Diapers - But Environmentally Friendly

We have developed our own Poo Paper that catches poop and thus separates it from the inner diaper (it is then simply discarded along with the poop). Our Poo Paper is tailored to fit the sizes of our inner diapers (Size 1 and Size 2), ensuring that everything lands on the Poo Paper (often Poo Papers are not correctly fitting for the respective diaper).

It is made of 100% cellulose (paper) and is therefore absolutely sustainable.

Your impact is still enormous

...even if you only use a small Judes set while also using disposable diapers.

For example, if you use just one Judes diaper per day instead of a disposable one, over the course of 3 years of diapering, you'll save a total of 109kg of plastic waste.

How sustainable are Judes really?

...even when considering the washing of Judes cloth diapers

Compared to disposable diapers, the production of Judes also results in significantly less plastic, CO2, water, and energy use.

Even when factoring in the water, CO2, and energy consumption for washing, Judes are still far more eco-friendly than disposable diapers.

Therefore, by choosing even a small Judes set, you would make a big difference - saving your child from consuming a vast amount of resources.

Nearly Diaper-Free a Year Earlier

Children who wear Judes or combine them with disposable diapers tend to become potty trained up to 1 year earlier on average than with disposable diapers alone.

There are already independent studies indicating that children wearing disposable diapers become diaper-free later and later.

We have conducted a survey with over 5,000 parents - the outcome shows that children wearing Judes indeed become potty trained significantly earlier than with disposable diapers.

Savings of up to €3,000 per child

Disposable diaper manufacturers profit more from you the longer your child needs disposable diapers. They also become more expensive as your child grows. Children who are diapered with disposables often need diapers for more than 4 years. Each year, this results in costs of about €1,000.

Judes are an investment in the health and future of your child.

With Judes, your costs are not only significantly lower, but they are also capped. You pay once—and you have your Judes not just for one child, but you can also use them for additional children or sell them second-hand.

When compared to disposable diapers, Judes essentially finance a monthly dining out experience for you.

Short- and long-term healthier for your child

In the reviews from our parents, we often read: "The red and sore spots on the skin have disappeared after we switched from disposable diapers to Judes."

This is because disposable diapers contain many additives (e.g., for moisture regulation) and can dry out the skin with their super-absorbers.

We believe that skin should rather breathe and self-regulate - just as nature intended. With our organic cotton, your child's skin can regulate itself naturally.

And we haven't even talked about the long-term health benefits yet. If you'd like to know more, you can find additional information here:

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.
