Cloth Diapers Vs Disposable: Which Is Better For My Child?

As a guest writer, I write this article for all first time mothers who are about to start shopping for diapers. When I had my first child, there were a lot of confusions here and there concerning which diaper was better between disposable or cloth ones. While some experienced mothers said they preferred disposable diapers with facts and figures which were enough to convince me, others would bring other facts and figures supporting disposable diapers. All these statistics made be so confused that I had to take my time to judge the situation myself. How? Before I tell you how I made my final decision, let me give you all the fact and figures for each diaper

Disposables Diapers:  One of the facts that support disposable is that it can hold large amount of baby urine without being overfilled. With this, your baby can stay longer in it without any inconvenience.

Cloth Diapers:  Some mothers said that there are some cloth diapers NOT ALL that can be used between 8 – 12 hours without any problem which means that fluid can be in it for at least 12 hours before it calls for change.

Decision: Disposable Diapers better than cloth Diapers

Disposable Diapers:  All disposable diapers make baby skin drier and it reduces the rate at which the baby skin gets in contact with urine or feces. This is because it takes out water from baby skin into the diapers layers.

Cloth Diapers:  Some cloth diapers are now absorbent and convenient which make baby skin to be dry.

Decision: Both are good at this level but disposable diapers are drier than cloth.

Decision: Cloth diapers are the best in this area.

Disposable diapers: This diaper consumes more money because immediately it is been used it cannot be reused again which always calls for a new purchase.

Cloth diapers: With this, more money will be saved because it is washable, dryable and storable and reusable.
