Why Cloth is so Awesome
On average, disposable diapers can cost you $1500+ over the course of infancy to potty training. Did you know a lot of people struggle to buy diapers? A one size cloth diaper stash of around 24-36 diapers can run anywhere from $0-500 or $600+. It really comes down to where you buy from, or the system (I.e. pockets, all-in-ones, flats, wool) you choose. Also, whether or not you go with preloved, or high end brands.
Your big savings for cloth happen the second year, and you really start to see the savings each year after that, especially if you have more children. You can also donate or sell what’s not longer needed or what doesn’t work for you. So you’re able to recoup some costs, which is great.
Cloth diapers require fewer resources to produce, even less water, which means you’re reducing your carbon footprint. In the U.S. alone, our landfills are the third largest producer of released methane gas.
Billions of diapers are dumped into landfills each year, where they sit for +/-500 years decomposing! Can you imagine how much waste that is?! Every cloth diaper used, is a disposable that’s been kept out of a landfill. So whether you try cloth for a day or a few months, or fully commit through potty training with each child, you’ve done something great for your child’s future!
Better for Babies’ Health & Skin
Aside from the fact that disposables are known to cause rashes, there are Some harmful chemicals & carcinogens known to be in disposable diapers, such as sodium polyacrylate (absorbent gel crystals), pthalates, dioxin, and tributyl tin. Some of these chemicals have also been linked to endocrine disruption, as well.
While we know, and understand, that sometimes a cloth break is needed for several reasons for some people. It’s just good for us to all be well informed on what’s going on our babies’ skin. Because of this, we encourage you to do your own research on these topics, as well, so you can make the safest choice when needing to use disposables whether it be temporarily or permanently.
The Cuteness Factor
Let’s face it, cloth diapers have gotten so freaking cute over the years! There are so many prints to choose from. You can also just go with solids, if you like, but you will never be bored if you choose to let your little go sans bottoms! From foody prints to galaxy prints, anime and everything in between, there’s prints to match anyone’s style!
I seriously think a lot of people get into cloth for the environment and for saving money, but stay for the prints (wink). Plus, with cloth, say goodbye to saggy diapers, say hello to less blowouts and virtually no leaks (as long as you have great absorption and a really good fit)
Flexibility & Options!
Cloth is flexible & the options are endless!!
With cloth, one thing a lot of people love is the fact they can customize absorbency. Some have light wetters. Some moderate. Some are heavy wetter. We even have flooders. You can customize your absorbency to fit your child in all kinds of ways!
Cloth diapering is also flexible. It does NOT have to be all or nothing. You can dip your toes in for a little trial, or jump in without ever looking back. You can take even take a break if you need to. You can go with AIOs, pockets with inserts, flats with covers, fitteds and wool, the options are plenty!! You can make it fit your needs, wants and lifestyle! You can cloth full time or part time. Some people cloth at daycare or not. Some parents have partners that don’t cloth and that’s fine, too. Either way, you can make it work for you.
