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.
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!
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.
