What are Cloth Diapers All About?

So you may be asking yourself, what exactly are cloth diapers and why do I need them?

Simply put, cloth diapers are a reusable diapering solution. Beyond the simple definition there are tons of benefits that come with switching to cloth diapers; environmental impacts, no harmful chemicals against your baby’s skin, long term savings, and more!

No matter how you look at it, one of the most significant benefits of cloth diapers is the savings.

Let's Do the Math

The cost of disposable diapers are upwards of $60-$80 a month. That is an average of $680 per year! Now you will need roughly 2.5 years of disposables before your little one is fully potty trained. You’re looking at a total cost of diapers to be around $1,500.

Even worse, if you choose to go with "eco-friendly" disposable diapers, those will cost you around $2,200 after 2.5 years.

If you're shocked and thinking "all that money for something you just throw away?!" cloth diapers are the way to go. They do require an initial start-up cost but the long-term payout is well worth it! You are looking at savings of up to $1,000 or more!
