Have You Considered Using Cloth Diapers?
When you are expecting a new baby, there are so many things that need to be gathered. From a crib or bassinette, to blankets, towels, booties and of course, lots and lots of diapers. Babies go through thousands of diapers before they are finally potty trained and choosing the right diaper is an important decision.
Today, many people are beginning to choose cloth diapers rather than the common disposable diaper and for good reasons. We often make our decisions based on what seems to be the most common method we see in use. When all we ever notice or see advertised are the numerous varieties of disposable diapers, they become what most people naturally think of when choosing a diaper. However, there is an alternative and this alternative is growing in popularity every day.
Many people have chosen to return to Cloth diapering as a way to help protect the earth as well as save a considerable amount of money over the throw-away versions. A return to cloth diapers is certainly a popular option today, but these cloth diapers are not the same ones our grandparents used. Today’s cuddly and cute cloth diapers have become high-end boutique items and come in a wide variety of colors and designs. They are incredibly easy to wash and they can be adjusted to fit baby’s bottom perfectly. This means fewer leaks and messes.
Another advantage with cloth diapers is they allow baby’s sensitive skin the ability to breathe, it is not wrapped in hard paper products, filled with chemical gels all contained in a scratchy and uncomfortable plastic outer layer that traps in moisture and allows for no air circulation. Cloth diapers are all natural, soft and cozy. They provide a wicking effect to draw moisture away from baby’s skin while allowing the diaper to breathe.
Take a look at today’s cloth diapers and you may be surprised to see how far they’ve come!
