Disposable diapers are not only indecomposable but, can induce rashes in the sensitive skin of babies because of its heavy layers. This is where the startup Bumpadam comes in the scene.

Apart from this, the firm also runs its own website meant exclusively for selling excellent quality cloth diapers.
The price of the Bumpadam diaper is around US$14.9 each diaper. The price might sound a little high but it’s worth every penny spent on it. If one goes by the statistics, between the period of 0-3 years, a baby changes an approx of 7,000 diapers which obviously being indecomposable can be a burden on earth.
