babies naturally eliminate at predictable times . . . the best way to prevent [skin infections and UTI] is to get children out of diapers.

3.6 million tons of disposable diapers go to the landfill each year in the US.
That's roughly equivalent to 3.5 cars sent to the landfill every minute.
The first diaper was made in 1948. You can still find it in the landfill and it will stay there for 500 years. Over the last 70 years, we have literally created mountains of human feces all around us.
