Why Choose Cloth?

Why choose cloth diapers? The reasons are numerous: some people want natural fibers on their baby, others are more interested in the financial and environmental waste of buying disposables. Whatever your reason may be for choosing cloth, here are a few more facts to remind you of why cloth is the best for your baby.

 

 

Environmental

  • No one knows how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose. Some have estimated it to be between 250-500 years!
  • Disposable diapers are the third largest single consumer item in landfills.
  • 20 billion disposable diapers are used in the US every year.
  • According to National Geographic, it takes 1 cup of crude oil to make a disposable diaper. That equals out to roughly 16 oil tankers per year to make enough disposable diapers for US consumers.

 

Sensitive Skin

  • The most common reason for diaper rash is too much moisture against the skin.
  • Newborn babies should be changed every 1-2 hours and older babies should be changed every 3-4 hours no matter what type of diaper they are wearing.
  • Diaper rash can occur in disposables and cloth diaper, but can be prevented by changing frequently, understanding how food allergies can affect children, knowing which fabrics your child may be sensitive to, and making sure diapers are fitting your child properly.

 

Financial

  • From newborn to potty training, one child could use up to 7000 disposable diapers. Depending on the cost per diaper, that could add up to over $1500. By using cloth you can save over $1000 on one child and over double that if you re-use your cloth diaper for multiple children.
  • Cloth diaper are also resellable! If your cloth diapers are still in good shape, you can resell them when your child grows out of them.
