As a consumer and parent it’s often times very hard to find the means and information to make a conscious decision on what brand, style, and kind of diaper to purchase for your budding baby boy or girl. So here are a few hard facts to better help you make up your mind and choose the very best for your growing baby:

 

  • Comfort and Health: Often a huge disparity, your baby’s comfort often times will come down to his or her preference. Generally speaking, both diapers will see your baby flourish and remain in good health, but there were noticably more benefits from cloth diapers than disposable here. Your baby will almost always prefer the softer feel of cloth diapers. Disposable diapers do not breathe as well as cloth, and their moisturizing, absorbent chemicals have been known to irritate some babies skin.
  • Convenience: Cloth Diapers are often imagined with complicated folds and scary pins of the past, thankfully those kinds of archaic fastens are long since replaced with Velcro or snap closures, shapes fitted to baby, waterproof bands around the waist and legs, and removable linings, making the cloth change just as quick and easy as the disposable. Cloth diapers with their lack of chemicals and are rarely not as absorbent, though, so you may find yourself changing them more often. With that being said, cloth diapers edge out disposables in convenience solely on the fact that there’s no need to go anywhere to acquire more diapers. If you can do laundry, you can have fresh diapers!
  • Cost: Monetarily, disposable diapers – with their constant need to be bought – are far more expensive than a one time purchase of cloth diapers and their general washing. Imagine spending roughly $3,000 to $4,500 over the first three years of your babies life. Budget wise, can you accept that rather large and length hit to your wallet? Cloth diapers, which are thought to be expensive, is a single transaction roughly one tenth of what you would pay overall against disposable. The numbers don’t lie.
  • Environmental Impact: This is a straightforward and perhaps the most noted arguement made between the two camps. Cloth diapers have a small and very weak impact negatively on our environment. As a reusable resource in baby care and comfort, there’s is next to no waste created by them. Disposable diapers however collect in landfills because only 40% of disposable diapers are biodegradable.
