All the moms out there, I have got an important question for you. Are you having financial issues and these financial issues are increasing due to the cost of disposable diapers? Do you find it hard being an environmentalist in using those diapers? Are you looking to switch to cheap diapers? If your answer to all of those questions is Yes, then I have got a suggestion for you that can resolve all of these problems.
The solution that I want to suggest here is cloth diapers Or resusable diapers. I am aware that the idea of using cloth diapers can be a little daunting at first. So, let’s take a look in detail why you should be choosing cloth diapers instead of regular diapers.
What is a cloth diaper?
A cloth diaper or sometimes called, cloth nappy is a reusable diaper made up of natural fibres, man-made materials or with the combination of both of the said items. Some of the times, cloth diapers are made up of industrial cotton, and they can be bleached later. Some other materials which can be used in making cloth diapers are wool, unbleached hemp, and bamboo.
How to use cloth diapers?
You may have fallen in different kind of myths regarding cloth diapers but let me update you with a bit of reality regarding these diapers. A question that should be rising in your mind as of this moment is how to use cloth diapers? There are different types of cheap cloth diapers available in the market.
If you have purchased a cloth diaper which has Velcro closures, it is very much identical to disposable diapers when it comes to changing. You have to close the tabs before you throw in the diaper pail and the wash. This procedure ensures that tabs don’t get stuck to the diapers while changing.
I would like to add that mostly, the one-size diapers come with a snap-down rise. This means that there are snaps across the waistline on the top of the diaper. So, if your baby is newborn or has less weight or size than normal, you need to all the way snap down the diaper in front. It will make the diaper’s length short. Some of the diapers also have adjustable elastic that will make it very easy for you to change the diaper.
Benefits of using Cloth Diapers
Research and studies have shown that by switching from disposable diapers to cloth diapers, you can save $660 to $810 for your first child till he/she is potty trained.
A study has shown that 27.4 billion disposable diapers were sent to landfills only in the US last year. Now you can do the calculations of methane produced by those diapers. So, switching to cloth diapers is the best and most sensible of all the options.
I am pretty sure that after reading the details and the benefits of cloth diapers, you would have reached a decision yet. If not, you still don’t have to worry at all. Let me conclude what we have learned until this moment.
Cloth diapers are diapers that are made up of natural fabric or sometimes mixed with human-made products. But either it is natural or mixed, you will be glad to know that it has nothing to do with any chemical that makes it very safe for the baby’s skin.
Cheap cloth diapers do save your money as they cost lower than the disposable diapers. When you are using cloth diapers, you don’t have to go to the supermarket every time to get diapers. Further; these diapers don’t add up to already polluted environment that eventually will ensure that your baby and all of the other babies will surely live in a better world than ours!
