Are you currently deciding between using cloth diapers or disposable diapers on your baby? Here are some of the many benefits to using cloth diapers:

They are free of chemicals

Cloth diapers are not just soft against your baby’s skin, but are also made from natural fibers such as bamboo, cotton, and hemp. In other words, they are free of chemicals typically found in disposable diapers, such as perfumes, chlorine, and sodium polyacrylate.

They’re much more economical

The average baby needs roughly 6,000 diapers for the first two years of life. While the initial investment in cloth diapers may appear costly, keep in mind that you are purchasing reusable diapers. Most cloth diapers come in one size, which means that your baby—and the next one—can use the same batch of cloth diapers from infancy until they are potty trained. If you take good care of your diapers, you can even sell them second-hand!

They are better for the environment

Disposable diapers—the third largest consumer item found in landfills—are estimated to take anywhere from 250 to 500 years to properly decompose. A cloth diaper doesn’t get thrown in the garbage bin, but in the washing machine. Wouldn’t it be nice to reduce your carbon footprint?

It may lead to earlier potty training

Disposable diapers are known for wicking away the wetness, allowing your baby to stay dry for longer periods of time. Since young ones are more likely to feel the wet sensation against their skin when in cloth diapers, it may make them more aware of when it is time to go to the potty and thus facilitate earlier potty training.
