comment Experiences hiking with a baby: diapers
the scary chemicals are mostly hydrogels and cellulose, plus the plastic cover. It's like burning a plastic bag - don't do it every day, but one week in your lifetime (or perhaps 2 or 3) for each child you have is not a huge contribution to pollution. [Switch to cloth at home for a bigger impact on the world.] They don't smell of diaper when they burn, but they can smell of plastic which is why we do it when no-one is sitting around the campfire.
