Why Cloth Diaper?

It's Easy

Modern cloth diapers offer a variety of styles, fabrics, and features that make them more fun and less daunting than ever before.  

  • Snap-in-One diapers resemble the style of disposable diapers that many people are familiar with and feel comfortable using.
  • No more pricked fingers or poked babies – safety pins are a thing of the past. 
  • Advanced fabrics, liners, diaper sprayers, and more efficient washing machines and clothes dryers make laundering diapers easier than in the past. 
  • The snug-fitting elastic waistband and leg openings mean fewer diaper blowouts.
  • Cloth-diapered children have been known to potty train sooner than children wearing disposable diapers, making their overall time in diapers shorter and easier for parents.
  • It's Economical

    While the initial cost of purchasing a supply of cloth diapers can seem daunting, the savings add up quickly!

  • The average diaper-wearing child goes through at least 8-10 diapers a day– that's over 3,000 diapers a year!
  • Each child could need at least 6,000-7,500 disposable diapers before toilet training, for a cost ranging from $1,800-$6,000!
  • A stash of 36-48 cloth diapers will suffice for most children through potty training, and can sometimes even be reused for subsequent children.
  • The savings are significant – roughly $2,000 per child!
  • It's Eco-Friendly

    They are reusable and can be used at least 150-200 times!

  • Many studies have proven that disposable diapers negatively impact the environment both in the production and disposal after use.
  • While the water used in washing cloth diapers is an environmental concern, it is important to note that a tremendous amount of water is used to produce disposable diapers too.
  • Billions of disposable diapers are hauled to the landfill each year and each individual disposable diaper takes approximately 500 years to decompose.
  • With cloth diapers, there is no landfill waste, nor chemical waste to worry about.
  • It's Healthier & More Comfy

    It boils down to this – would you rather wear underwear made from cotton or plastic?

  • By wearing cloth diapers, your baby's skin won't be exposed to the chemicals that are in disposable diapers.
  • Many studies cite increased skin irritation due to the crystallized absorption chemicals and perfumes used in new super absorbent disposable diapers.
  • Due to the absorbency of disposable diapers, babies are often left in them for extended periods of time instead of changing frequently.
