Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers, once considered a relic from the past, have seen a bit of a return to popularity in recent years. This is largely due to the increased interest in environmental issues, but this older style of diaper does have other advantages as well. And once they try them, many parents never go back to the disposable variety.

One of the primary advantages of choosing cloth over disposable diapers is economic in nature. Simply put, cloth diapers will inevitably save you a considerable amount of money over the long term. Cloth varieties are intended to be used over and over again, and can often last for many months before they need replacing, whereas one can go through dozens of boxes of disposable diapers within that same period of time.

Comfort is another commonly cited advantage of using cloth diapers. Most disposable diapers are made from plastic, which does not allow the skin to breathe as would cotton cloth. And secondly, cloth is simply softer on the skin than a plastic diaper.
