The arrival a new baby is perhaps one of the most joyous occasions you and your partner will celebrate. Babies are a blessing, and indeed when you bring yours home you know life is going to change for the better. As you await the birth, no doubt you have spent these past months preparing a nursery and getting together the essentials: a stroller and car seat, clothing, a crib, and of course diapers. If you are especially eco-minded, you may have concerns about what type to use. You've listened to friends expand upon the benefits of disposable diapers versus cloth and vice versa, but ultimate the decision is yours to make.
So, what will it be? Will you raise a traditional or cloth diaper baby?
As you consider your options, most likely the top concerns that will come to mind are waste disposal and/or cleaning, and cost. Some new parents may balk at the idea of cloth diapers and inserts based on the price, to say nothing of the prospect of handling soiled items. Of course, a baby is going to poop no matter what you put on his bottom, and with disposables you not only must change them but collect them in a diaper pail until trash day. When you think about how many diapers you'll go through in a week - it could range from 50 to 70 - you have to wonder if you want that kind of a load hanging around the house, as opposed to keeping ten cloth packs which are washed in a cycle so you always have spares.
It is estimated that parents who use disposable diapers may spend an average of $2500 over the first years through potty training. Users of cloth diapers and inserts (if needed) will spend as little as $100-300 in the same time period! Even the prospect of more laundry and water bills in this timeframe is not likely to exceed the price paid for disposable convenience. Plus there is less waste and less harm to the environment.
As you prepare for the birth your child, consider how you will protect him and assist in changing him. Disposable and cloth diapers each have advantages - both are comfortable and effective - but ultimately you must know which is the best option that will not only help you, but the environment.
