You'll save money.
- You'll prevent waste.
- It's more convenient.
- Tired of blowouts? Disposable diapers are known for "up the back" and "down the leg" blowouts. These blowouts often ruin outfits for mom and baby. Worse, they also create a very challenging to clean mess in carseats, on blankets, and in bedding. Who wants to deal with that mess? Not all messes are avoidable, but, thankfully, most cloth diapers are designed specifically to prevent major blowouts.
- Out of diapers again? When you buy cloth diapers, your diapers are always available. Just wash and go.
5. They are safer for your little one.
A baby can be sensitive to the ingredients used in diapers. From Kimberly Clark's 2005 Annual Reoprt: "Super absorbent materials are important components in disposable diapers, training and youth pants and incontinence care products. Polypropylene and other synthetics and chemicals are the primary raw materials for manufacturing non-woven fabrics, which are used in disposable diapers, training and youth pants, wet wipes, feminine pads, incontinence and health care products, and away-from-home wipers. "If needed, an information sheet about the specific ingredients in disposable diapers can be obtained from the diaper manufacturer at the request of your pediatrician. Using your pediatrician's advice, you should be able to choose the right diapering system. If you aren't sure about a particular product, call the product's manufacturer to resolve any questions before making a purchase. Another issue frequently brought up in cloth diapering circles is dioxin exposure. According to a Mothering Magazine article, entitled "The Joy of Cloth Diapers" "Dioxin, which in various forms has been shown to cause cancer, birth defects, liver damage, and skin diseases, is a by-product of the paper-bleaching process used in manufacturing disposable diapers, and trace quantities may exist in the diapers themselves."
