Why You Should Use Cloth

I have recently been helping one of my friends get started with cloth diapers. It has been a lot of fun and reminded me why I started using cloth diapers in the first place. It also reminded me why getting fluffy mail is so much fun. :)

Cloth diapers are cute. There is nothing sweeter than a little bum in a cloth diaper.

Cloth diapers are expensive . . . up front. I have not had to purchase any more diapers since and have saved a lot of money that way. Not having to purchase diapers means being able to spend that money somewhere else. Maybe something for mommy?!

Cloth diapers are better for the environment. I feel better about cloth because I don't have that extra garbage to throw out everyday & I know that I am not contributing soiled diapers to an already overflowing landfill.

There are a lot of people who love cloth diapers and I have met many new friends this way! I haven't met anyone crazy about disposables. :)

My baby hasn't had a rash since we switched to cloth. This was a great positive for cloth diapers for me because my little guy - in the short time we used disposables - had a terrible rash that wouldn't go away.

So, between, saving money, the environment, having fewer or no rash problems, meeting new people, and seeing such cute fluff every day, who wouldn't want to do cloth?!

Thanks for this succinct list of reasons to love cloth diapers! I feel the same way and have to keep myself from brining it up too much with other moms. I know that more moms would choose cloth if they just tried it out for a short time!

Yep, I totally love cloth diapers! Some people think I'm off a bit when I say I actually really prefer it to disposables!

I love what you said about no one being crazy about disposables. It's so true. Cloth is just so much cuter!!!
