Why Use Cloth Diapers?

Posted by Diapers n' More Collaborator on

This is my first time blogging and my goal is to answer questions and share information.   I have been a cloth diaper user and advocate most of my adult life, starting in 1982 through1989 I used cloth diapers for my own children.  I started my cloth diaper adventure in retail in 2004 and opened my first store in 2005.  I thought I would start my blog by answering the biggest question I get from my customers.

Why Use Cloth Diapers?

Cloth diapering today is not what it used to be. When many parents think of cloth diapers, they think of flat diapers that need to be folded and fastened with diaper pins, and then covered with plastic pull on covers. Generally, they also think that the clean-up involved with using cloth diapers would be tedious and messy. It seems as though many parents have missed the total evolution of the cloth diaper that has occurred over the past decade or so. New choices in materials and high tech fabrics are causing an increasing number of parents to reconsider whether disposable diapers are the best choice. We have options now that provide us with cloth diapers that are elasticized so that they are fitted and snug, waterproof in many instances, breathable, and manageable with Velcro-like closures or snaps. They are just as easy and as convenient to use as disposables. Of course, it is not just their functionality and convenience that has been affected by this evolution either. Cloth diapers available today are absolutely adorable, available in a variety of gorgeous colors, prints, and luxurious textures and fabric. That is a big selling point for many parents because there is nothing cute about a disposable diaper. Quite simply, cloth diapers are convenient, cost effective, healthier for our children, and better for the environment. I feel as though the real question parents should be asking themselves is, why use disposables?
