Good thing that we cloth diaper!

Possible shortage of disposable diapers - and all because of the dreaded SAP! My guess is that there will still be disposables, just lots of "ECO" ones - and I bet all of the brands will be tooting their own horns that they have gone eco, when really they were forced into it! LOL!

Re: Good thing that we cloth diaper!

honestly I don't think we will see any shortage of sposies.. My guess is sooo many sposies have already been made their really wont be an issue.

I doubt there will be a shortage although it would be nice. I wish cloth was a little more mainstreamed. I think if some of the big box stores started selling it IN their store people might be a little more curious and realise thats its not all prefolds and plastic pants.

Re: Good thing that we cloth diaper!

I doubt a real diaper shortage will occur. I do think one or two companies, whichever ones this plant supplied, may have have some production issues. Primarily I think it will be an excuse to up the prices of sposies. Meaning those of us who cloth may save even more than previously thought. Or for those of us who overspent may actually save some using cloth.

I bet it will make prices go up a bit. That place supposedly supplied 20% of the world's SAP and will be out of commission for a while. That will impact the supply at some point and that will drive up prices. And, of course, once the prices go up, they will never go back down.
