So why do I cloth diaper? That’s a big question!!
I will also be talking about our favorite brand of cloth diapers
Nora’s Nursery .
I started to cloth diaper with my first child on and off for the first 6 months.
Why did I do it on and off? I’m not really sure.
I didn’t know anything about cloth diapers.
I didn’t know anybody that used cloth diapers.
And I didn’t know what I was doing!
So I started reading and researching about cloth diapers
I Found a lot of interesting stuff. Like what kind of chemical’s were in disposable diapers. And how expensive disposable diapers were!
And besides the “It’s better for the earth”
Did you know.
In the first year one baby will use anywhere from 2,500-3,000 diapers? That’s only in the first year!! That’s pretty crazy!
On average one box of diapers are anywhere from 30-40 dollars a box.. And you would probably use one box every two weeks? That’s over 1,000 dollars in just the first year!! On diapers that you put in the trash! That’s kinda like just throwing your money away.
With cloth diapers it’s a one time buy! Yes it might be a bigger up front cost But you’ll be saving so much money in the long run!
My whole stash of cloth diapers has costed me under 100 dollars! Yes under 100 dollars. (Some bought 2nd hand)I have around 20 cloth diapers. Which is a “Small Stash” I normally have to wash diapers every 3rd day. I have been using them for over 2 years also. Yes they hold up and last forever if you take care of them.
So I’ve spent 100 dollars on diapers in a total of 2 years!
Instead of over 2,000 dollars! That right there would make me switch to cloth diapering!!
I get told a lot that cloth diapers are just to much of a up front cost.
They don’t have to be!!
Find a mom that is getting rid of her stash shop second hand. Yes shop second hand. You might be thinking that’s gross to buy someone else’s diapers. But let me tell you, Most cloth diapering moms take better care of there diapers then anything else!
I know I do!
Do you know what’s in your diapers?
Here’s a few things in disposable diapers.
Do you know most diapers have bleach in them? I don’t know about you but I don’t want bleach on my baby’s bottom!
(VOCS) Did you know (VOCS) According to the EPA, VOCs can cause eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, damage to the liver, kidney and central nervous system. Some VOCs are even suspected of causing cancer in humans (EPA.gov).
I like that cloth diapers don’t have any of that in them!!
That right there again would make me want to switch to cloth diapers!
Nora’s nursery diapers are
Lead free, Cpsia complaint and SGS tested!
This is 2019. We have disposable diapers!
I get told that a lot!! Yes it is 2019 and we do have disposable diapers.
No matter what year it is I will still use cloth diapers! They are better for your baby. They are better for the earth. They will save you SO much money. And let me just tell you a secret!! In over 2 years my kids have NEVER had a diaper blow out in CLOTH DIAPERS!! That again would make me want to switch to cloth diapers!
Plus unlike disposable diapers they have so many different prints color etc
Any kind of diaper you could think of wanting let me tell you somewhere out there someone has it for sell!
Another great thing about cloth diapers.
Did you know when you are done using them you can RESELL them!! Yup and get some of your money back. You can’t do that with disposable diapers!
Cloth diapers are hard to use.
100% not true! They’ve come a long way since the days of folding flat pieces of cloth and securing with safety pins.
All you do is snap them and that’s it!!
I’m not gonna lie when I first started to use cloth diapers I was scared to use them in public.. Because they weren’t your “Normal” diapers..But once you start using them you’ll never want to go back!!
Here’s another great thing about cloth diapers! They are fully adjustable.
My little one has been wearing them since she was probably about a week old. She is now 9 months and still wearing them with no problem My son when he was 2 was able to wear the same diapers as well!
Another great thing about Nora’s Nursery.
Did you know they have a warranty on there cloth diapers? Yes a warranty on diapers!
They offer a 365 day warranty on all our snaps.
They have a 120 day warranty on all elastics.
They have a 120 day warranty on all stitching and seams.
They also have 100% NO-RISK MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!!
Here is a link for you to go check them out!
So let me try to get back on why I cloth diaper.
I love cloth diapering.
They are so easy to use.
They are super cute.
They are super soft.
They are better for your little ones.
Again I have NEVER had a blow out in them.
My little ones have NEVER gotten a rash from cloth diapers.
They save me so much money!
Plus i’m not filling the landfill up with diapers.
This was suppose to be a blog about why I use cloth diapers.. But I think it’s turned in to me telling you about them hah!
