Day 25: Cloth Diapers

20131025-225409.jpg

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 10 months since I started cloth diapering William! Never in my life did I imagine that I would use cloth diapers on my baby! My, how I have changed since having my first almost five years ago! I would never have even dreamed of using cloth with Cecilia! Heck! I threw away pooped in panties when she was potty-training! I’m not sure what exactly triggered the change in me, but I am grateful for it everyday!

So, why use cloth??

Cost:
Did you know that it can cost anywhere from $2,000-$3,000 to diaper a baby from birth until potty training?? Yet, it is possible to spend only $100-$300 on cloth diapers and accessories that can be used throughout a baby’s diaper years, not to mention the extra savings if you use them for more than one child! Also, cloth diapers have an amazing resale value! I just think those figures are so amazing!!

Environment:
Nearly 20 billion diapers are disposed of each year! It can take anywhere from 250-500 years for a disposable diaper to decompose completely! That’s a lot of really old crap!

Health:
Disposable diapers are FULL of chemicals and fragrances! Cloth, of course, isn’t! Babies who wear cloth diapers are much less likely to get diaper rashes than those who wear disposables! William hasn’t had a diaper rash in 10 months!

Cuteness:
Let’s face it! Cloth diapers are just so freaking cute! When I first delved into the world of cloth diapers, I thought those women were crazy when they told me that I’d soon be addicted to buying cloth diapers! Boy, was I wrong! I’m utterly obsessed!

So, if you’ve even been a tiny bit interested in cloth diapers, I highly recommend that you try them out! You won’t be sorry!
