Save Money

Disposable diapers can cost an average of $1,000 per year! Keep that in mind when comparing pricing for cloth diapers, which can be reused until your child no longer needs diapers!

Save the Worries

Remember those chemicals we mentioned? Well they you also want to avoid those touching your babies bottom. Cloth diapers are much gentler on their sensitive skin.

Save the Environment

Loaded with chemicals and plastics, disposable diapers are nowhere near environmentally friendly. Add up the 3,000 diapers a child averages a year and it becomes a big problem.
