5 Reasons As To Why Washable Cloth Diapers Are Better Than Disposables

The debate on washable baby diapers and disposable diapers is a never-ending one. Where disposable diapers are easy to use and throw, washable cloth diapers are skin friendly, pocket friendly and eco-friendly. 

Busy moms with multiple kids to take care of or working moms may think that use of disposable diapers is easier and millions of moms use disposables for their babies, so they are not going to be that bad for the babies. However, this is not true. 

Here are 5 reasons as to why washable cloth diapers are better than disposables.

The Cost: when you first search to buy baby diapers online, you would know that buying disposable diapers in wholesale costs just as much as a set of few washable cloth diapers. Which means that for the same amount you may get 100-200 disposable diapers and just 10-15 cloth diapers. But never go on the quantity and if you go then think of it that way that you will need to buy thousands of disposable diapers whereas 2 sets of 10-15 washable diapers for babies is enough. So obviously, by choosing washable diapers for your babies you are saving not just a few but hundreds of dollars.

Rash Creams: Rashes are common amongst babies using disposable diapers and so it gradually seems like rash creams come in the package of disposable diapers. According to our grandmothers, when washable cloth diapers are used for babies any mother seldom needs rash creams. 

Trash: this is a known fact that the use of disposable diapers generate tons and tons of trash which is just landfills it is non-biodegradable. Did you know that each baby from his birth to potty training needs thousands of diapers? Imagine the trash created after just one baby! Washable cloth diapers, as the name suggests are washable, which means re-usable and made out of cloth, which means biodegradable material and thus zero trash. 

Smell: washable baby diapers have no smell of theirs unless they aren’t cleaned, washed or dried properly. Disposable diapers, irrespective of the brand you may choose, have this distinct smell or fragrance. This smell may soothe you while making your baby wear the diaper but will definitely frustrate you while removing the same upon getting dirty. This is because of the reaction taking place between the chlorine (from the urine) and the chemical additives present in the disposable diapers.

Sag: Washable baby diapers are thick with enough room in it to absorb pee effectively. Modern day disposable diapers are super thin having gel absorbent technology, which starts sagging as soon as the gel absorbs pee.
