When you order our trial set, you'll receive our satisfaction guarantee.
We are so confident that diapering with Judes Family is easy, that we will give you your money back if you don't agree. Even if you've already used and washed the trial set! You simply send us back your trial set within 100 days - and we will refund you the full purchase price.
You don't need to give us any reasons. However, it would of course be great if we could learn from your feedback!
The 100-day money-back guarantee is valid once per customer.
Here you can find a detailed explanation of how it works.
1. Place our Poo Paper in the inner diaper and put the diaper on your baby (same handling as with disposable diapers).
2. The Judes Paper catches the poop. You dispose of the Judes Paper in the trash and the inner diaper goes into the wet bag.
3. The wet bag, along with the diapers, goes into the washing machine. Everything gets clean again with a wash at 60°C and 1000 revolutions per minute.
4. Dry - and start over!
By the way: Washing with Judes takes about 15 minutes per week.
Disposable diapers generate approximately 1 ton of plastic waste per child during the entire diapering period. Each additional child adds the same amount of plastic waste.
While there are compostable disposable diapers and disposable diapers made from recycled plastic, they cannot be composted or recycled in waste systems. They end up in the regular trash.
About 8% of regular trash in Germany is generated by disposable diapers.
This is how we calculate the prevented plastic waste from disposable diapers with our sets:
Classic Set Part-Time
This set is normally used with Judes diapers half of the time. It also includes only one size, so it can only be used for about half of the diapering duration. Disposable diapers produce 1 ton of plastic waste, therefore, roughly 500kg of plastic waste is generated in half the diapering time. Since parents use the Part-Time set with Judes half of the time, they can prevent 250kg of plastic waste with the Judes Classic Part-Time Set.
Classic Set Small
With this set, parents usually diaper with Judes 75% of the time. We assume that half of the diapering period is covered with this set since it includes only one size, so using this set can prevent 375kg of plastic waste.
Classic Sets Standard and All-In
With these sets, parents normally diaper entirely with Judes. We assume that half of the diapering period is covered with this set, as it includes only one size. Hence, half of 1 ton of plastic waste, i.e., 500kg of plastic waste, can be prevented with these sets.
The Premium Sets include both sizes, allowing for diapering with Judes throughout the entire period. With the Premium Part-Time Set, 500kg of plastic waste is prevented using Judes. With the Small Set, it's 750kg and with the Premium "Standard" and "All-In" Sets, roughly 1 ton of plastic waste from disposable diapers is prevented.
Here you can find out how sustainable Judes really are compared to disposable diapers.
In our calculations, we use the average diaper price (across all sizes) of the following brands:
- 0.27€ (Pampers)
- 0.34€ (Eco by Naty)
- 0.31€ (Lillydoo)
- 0.35€ (Lillydoo Green)
As of 05.06.22 at dm.
The average of these prices is 32 cents. We will base our further calculations on this diaper price.
Children should be changed every 2-3 hours, therefore we calculate 7 diapers per day (in 24 hours). We also assume that children need to be diapered with disposable diapers for an average of 3 years.
Based on these assumptions, the following calculation is made:
3 years at 365 days x 7 changes at 0.32€ = 2,434€.
Additionally, the costs for a diaper pail (15€), refill cartridges (about 67€ per year), wet wipes (about 98€ per year), and changing pads (about 17€ per year) need to be accounted for. Our calculation assumes that 9 wet wipes per day at 0.03€ (average price) are used. In total, this amounts to 561€ costs for disposable diaper accessories.
The total cost of disposable diapers and accessories amount to 2,995€ after 3 years of diapering.
This means that about 1,000€ per year are spent on disposable diapers. However, many children require disposable diapers for longer than 4 years (approximately 25% of children). Thus, using disposable diapers can become a cost trap.
We have also made a calculation with an extremely budget-friendly disposable diaper option:
Even when considering the inexpensive Babylove diapers (dm’s own brand), based on the above calculation, we arrive at 996€. Additionally, the costs for diaper accessories amount to 561€. In this extremely cost-effective case, we come to a total of 1,557€.
The larger the Judes set, the less often you have to wash. For example, with an All-In-Set, you only need to wash your Judes every 4 days. Thus, a larger set also incurs lower washing costs.
Cost calculation per Judes Set
We assume an average diapering time with Judes of 2 years and 3 months. We are assuming that you are diapering full-time with the Judes Family.
Each wash cycle incurs a cost of 71 cents (approximately 41 cents for electricity, drinking, and wastewater, and about 30 cents for detergent costs). Some washing machines are cheaper, others are more expensive. Here you can calculate your exact washing costs.
For the dryer, about 0.50 cents are incurred with a modern device and about €1.20 with an older dryer. In this calculation, we take the average value of 0.85 cents.
Washing costs depending on the set size
Part-Time (would have to wash every day): 365 days × 2 years and 3 months × 0.71 cents = €583. The dryer costs would be €822.
Small (would have to wash every other day): 182 days × 2 years and 3 months × 0.71 cents = €291. The dryer costs would be €411.
Standard (only needs to wash every third day): 122 days × 2 years and 3 months × 0.71 cents = €194. The dryer costs would be €233.
All-In (only needs to wash every fourth day): 122 days × 2 years and 3 months × 0.71 cents = €146. The dryer costs would be €175.
You can significantly save on washing and drying costs if you opt for a larger Judes set. Especially if you use a dryer, it is financially worthwhile to choose a larger Judes set.
Children who wear Judes or combine them with disposable diapers often become potty trained 2 years earlier than with disposable diapers alone (on average almost 1 year).
This is because children wearing Judes receive natural bio-feedback from which they learn. Disposable diapers are designed to always feel dry. This results in children using disposable diapers taking longer to become diaper-free.
We conducted a survey with more than 5,000 parents - with astonishing results.
As parents ourselves, we've experienced how it feels to be left to our own devices after purchasing a large pack of cloth diapers.
From this experience, we know how vital it is to support you even after your purchase in helping your child become potty trained.
Included in your Judes Set is our coaching. After your purchase, you will 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 that they feel very well taken care of and are glad that they can contact us at any time.
It's important to us that our interests and your interests as a mom or dad are aligned.
