If you are interested in saving money and reducing your contribution to the local landfill, cloth diapers are an excellent option. They have come a long way in the past few decades and are now impressively designed with features such as Velcro or snap closures, waterproof lining, breathable material, and provide much more comfort. They’re easily washed in your washer/dryer and are an all-around much more practical choice for any eco or budget conscious parent.
In my own personal experience, I highly recommend the use of cloth diapers since they save a lot of money in the long run. This is money that you could put elsewhere to buy other essentials for your baby. Plus, they are earth-friendly and you won’t have a garbage can full of dirty disposable diapers because after all, this is 2013 and we should set a good example by going green. It’s also a good idea to buy more than one pair. You’re going to need extra cloth diapers when a few become dirty and need to be thrown in the washer machine and dryer. Below I’ve outlined some excellent choices for parents in the market to pick out high quality cloth diapers.
