Wouldn't you like to save money and the planet at the same time?
Saving money is almost always good, but when you use fabric diapers, you're not only saving money, you're also doing something good for both your baby and the planet.
Many people believe that today's disposable diapers have lots of chemicals like dyes, perfumes, and a variety of plastics that just aren't good to have so close to your baby's skin. Some say that these chemicals can get absorbed into the baby potentially causing a wide variety of problems ranging from asthma to hormone disruption, and even to cancer.
Whether you believe this or not, why take the risk when there is a much better alternative?
Also, I read somewhere that it can take up to 500 years for a modern disposable diaper to decompose in a landfill. Our world is already pretty full of plastic, so why make your baby live in a world with more?
