I am a cloth diaper convert! I used regular disposable diapers with my son, and they were good, but now I've moved on to bigger and better days with my daughter! I absolutely love the adorable options cloth diapers offer, plus I know I'm doing a little something for the environment by not adding to those landfills! The money you spend entirely depends on your personal needs, but I can guarantee you can spend less over the course of your child's life in diapers by making the switch!
Some of the great benefits to consider:
- Waste reduction (Going green and great for the environment)
- Stylish prints
- Little to no diaper rash
- Money saver Vs traditional disposables
- Re-usable with future children or great Re-Sale value
- Baby is not exposed to chemicals
- Cloth diapered babies tend to potty train earlier because they recognize moisture more quickly vs disposables
- Modern cloth diapers can be just as convenient as disposables
