The Top 5 Reasons Why I Love Cloth Diapers

1. I like knowing what my babies sit on all day long. With cloth diapers, I don’t have to worry about exposing their delicate skin and private parts to the chemicals that make modern disposable diapers freakishly absorbent.

2. Cloth diapers are better for the environment. You nay-sayers might ask about energy and water used to wash the diapers but I really don’t think that can compare to the carbon footprint left by disposable diapers. After considering the manufacturing, the materials, the transportation and distribution of disposable diapers, my personal washer and dryer are small ticket items in the scheme of things.

3. I can’t stand paying for something that is going to be thrown away!

4. Why not use cloth? I am a stay-at-home mama. We have a washer and a dryer. We are on a tight budget. I hate going to Wal-Mart and that is where diapers are the cheapest. Ding. Ding. Cloth wins.

5. My babies look so flippin’ cute with fluffy cloth butts!
