Cloth Diapers are eco-friendly

Cloth diapers are eco-friendly for so many reasons.  There is less production of plastic, and far less going to the landfill.

Cloth is convenient

It may not seem like it at first, but cloth diapers can be more convenient than disposables! Modern cloth diapers are very easy to use. 

No running out to the store to get diapers or trying to use up a pack diapers that your baby is outgrowing. No clipping coupons, sale shopping and trying to stockpile the right size diapers! 

No stinky trash or diaper pails, no buying diaper pail liners.  No hauling trash cans full of diapers to the curb.

Save money

Cloth diapers can save you money.  Even with more expensive styles, they cost less over time than disposables and they have resale value when you’re finished with them.  

Washing cloth diapers is easy

You don’t have to dunk them in the toilet or soak them in bleach. 

You don’t even need expensive detergents, just use detergents designed for cloth diapers.

You may also want to consider a cloth diaper sprayer to make your job easier.

If you aren’t into washing or the time commitment, there are plenty of cloth diaper washing services.

They’re cute and better for your baby!

The prints, the colors, soft fabrics are just so cute! In addition, the fabric is so much better for your baby. 

No worries about chemicals or other unnatural products or fabrics on your newborn’s skin.

They are great for potty training

Cloth diapers work well for potty training, since your child will be less likely to want to sit in a wet diaper.  Cloth diapers help give better cues than disposables, which wick away moisture.

It doesn’t have to be all or nothing

Do what works for you and your family!

When we traveled, I used disposables.  You can send disposables to daycare.  You can choose what works best for you!

There are even diapers available with disposable inserts like Flip and Grovia.

    I know when I was a baby my mom used cloth diapers. These are very cool looking and I would for sure use these versus traditional diapers. Thank you for sharing about them!
