Expectant and new mothers need to stock up on diapers. Babies go through several of them in just one day.
While there are many variations and different brands, you really have only two options: cloth or disposable diapers. In some cases it is a matter of preference and in others based on certain needs or strong beliefs. In the following, we will examine the differences, pros and cons to each, and let you decide which one is best for you and your baby!
There is constant debate as to which one is better. On one hand, cloth diapers are much cheaper because they are reusable and washable. However, babies tend to get more rashes with cloth diapers because it doesn’t absorb the wetness as effectively. So what you might save on disposable diapers you may turn around spending on diaper rash cream.
On the other hand, there is the disposable diaper. It absorbs wetness really well and is very convenient. You don’t need to worry about washing because you simply throw them away after use. One disadvantage is the ongoing expense. Plus, they take years to biodegrade. For those who are environmentally conscious and aware, this may be a big thing to consider. In this case, there are now eco-friendly options. How awesome it that!
