"Cloth Diaper Are Easy To Use"
West Des Moines, Iowa (PRWEB) November 16, 2012
Bliss Baby & Maternity now offers new parents the new and green choice to use cloth diapers. Using cloth diapers is much cheaper than disposal diapers and it is easy and better for your baby.
Cloth diapering today is not what it used to be. When new parents think of cloth diapers, they think of flat diapers that need to be folded and fastened with diaper pins, and then covered with plastic pull on covers. Parents also think that the clean up involved with using cloth diapers would be tedious and messy. There has been an evolution with the cloth diaper that has occurred over the past 20 years that many parents have missed. New choices in materials and high tech fabrics are causing an increasing number of parents to consider whether disposable diapers are the best choice. There are options that provide cloth diapers that are elasticized so that they are fitted and snug, waterproof in many instances, breathable, and manageable with Velcro or snap closures. They are just as easy and as convenient to use as disposable diapers. It is not just the functionality and convenience that has been affected by this evolution. Cloth diapers available today are cute and available in a variety of fun colors, prints, and various textures and fabric. That is a big selling point for many parents because there is nothing cute about a disposable diaper. Cloth diapers are convenient, cost effective, healthier for children, and better for the environment. Maybe the question should be, why use disposable diapers?
Cloth Diapers Are Cheaper Than Disposable Diapers...
As a general rule, it is almost always cheaper to reuse than to buy new every time. This is no different with cloth diapers. Most parents go through 6 to 8 thousand diapers per child, from birth to about age three. If we take an average of what those diapers cost, that equates to between 2000 and 3000 dollars per baby. Once those children are potty trained, those diapers are gone. They can't be re-used. So, a significant chunk of our hard earned money has gone to buying what is essentially garbage. In comparison, enough cloth diapers to last for three years will usually cost between 3 to 8 hundred dollars. At a minimum, that is about a 1200-dollar savings. But wait! Consider, too, that those cloth diapers may last for one or more successive children and your savings doubles and even triples. Of course, it is difficult to make any hard and fast statements in this regard because of the varying costs of diapers, electricity, water, and detergents. Yes, cloth diapers will usually mean an extra one to three loads of laundry a week, but if everyone were to weigh the extra costs of their electricity, water usage, and detergent, I think they would be pleasantly surprised. These costs are infinitesimal compared to the cost of expensive disposable diapers.
Cloth Diapers Are Better For The Environment...
Throwaway diapers require tons of plastic and hundreds of thousands of trees to manufacture. Used diapers are trucked away, primarily to landfills, where they sit as packages of excrement for years. Disposable diapers are the third largest single product in the waste stream behind newspapers and beverage containers. The urine and feces in disposable diapers enter landfills untreated, possibly contaminating the ground water supply. When you consider that, the potential health risks to children, it is, very difficult to comprehend how washing and reusing cloth diapers could ever be considered an inconvenience.
Cloth Diapers Are Every Bit As Convenient As Disposable Diapers...
The options available today prove that cloth diapering doesn't have to be inconvenient. Cloths diapers are fitted with elastic in the legs, back area, and have easy closures or snaps. Many different fabric choices and absorbency levels allow parents to choose the best diapering system for the individual needs. It doesn’t get any easier.
