Pro’s to Cloth Diapers:
– Cost obviously. Though the start up is pricey, when you do your numbers compared to disposables, it’s quite a given.
-Softer for baby.
-She experienced no diaper rash compared to disposables when she gets red almost every time she goes #2.
-Less leak outs.
-Re-usable, therefor better for the environment. Though I will shamelessly admit this pro alone would never convince me to switch. It’s all about the cost for me.
– A strange satisfaction. I found myself so pleased to be using it. The mere thoughts that I could take a step back in this age of ultimate convenience, and do something out of the norm that might require a slightly bit more effort to better my life and save money- was very satisfying. It’s the same feeling I get when I make homemade baby food.
-The impeccable design and convenience of the modern day cloth diaper.
-I can use for all children yet to come into our home – making big time savings!
-I little more laundry.
-I have to look at the poopy a little longer. But at least I don’t have to touch it.
-Start up cost.
-Husband is slightly less than thrilled. A little bribery won’t hurt.
-Cost of special detergent (though not even close to the cost of disposables).
I would also love to hear in my comments if you would ever consider cloth diapers, or any thoughts you have on such things.
