In this episode of the Nicki’s Diapers podcast, Samantha talks about the Top 11 Benefits of Cloth Diapers to Tell the Skeptics.

You’ve probably been there-- bombarded by unsolicited advice and questions from family, friends, co-workers, and sometimes strangers about your choice to cloth diaper.

As well-intentioned as these individuals may be, their opinions can be overwhelming.

These people might not understand how many benefits there are with cloth diapering.

Samantha breaks down some of these benefits, so you have something to tell those cloth-diaper skeptics.

Cloth Diaper Benefit 1: Cost Savings

One of the most significant benefits of cloth diapers are the BIG savings.

Cloth Diaper Benefit 2: Good for the Planet

There is an environmental impact that each of us makes on Earth every day.

By using cloth diapers, we can reduce our carbon footprint a little bit at a time.

Cloth Diaper Benefit 3: No Chemicals in Cloth

Disposable diapers are laden with chemicals from production, but using cloth diapers with natural fibers near the baby's skin, you cut down on the risk of these issues.

Cloth Diaper Benefit 4: Shop Small Cloth Businesses

Many cloth diapers are produced and sold by small businesses that rely on the community’s support to thrive.

Here at Nicki's, we support small businesses and add as many of their products to our site as we can.

One of the greatest benefits of cloth diapers is the flexibility they offer.

You don’t have to cloth diaper ALL the time if you don’t want to.

Kids grow like WEEDS! Many cloth diapers can be used from newborn age to potty training.
