Why use cloth diapers?
Why use cloth diapers? Why would anyone choose to use cloth diapers when disposable diapers are so easy to just toss away? The obvious benefits of cloth diapers are saving money and benefiting the environment, but cloth diapers are good for your baby's skin too.
Disposable diapers are bleached white with chlorine. This creates dioxin. The EPA lists dioxin as one of the most potent carcinogens (cancer causing chemical). Dioxin can cause birth defects, infertility, neurotoxicity and diabetes - among other problems. While only traces remain in disposable diapers, that is still enough for many parents to say no to disposables.
Because disposable diapers absorb so much liquid, parents tend to leave them on the baby for much longer than recommended. Diapers of any kind should be changed about every 2 hours during the day.
No matter which diapers you choose, frequent diaper changing is recommended by pediatricians to baby’s skin dry and comfortable as well as to prevent the conditions that cause diaper rash.
Using cloth diapers is great for your wallet too! Using disposables can cost between $2,500-$4,000 from birth to potty training. Depending on the cloth diaper system you choose you will save $1,500-$2,500 diapering one child.
