When you buy cloth diapers for your baby instead of buying the disposable variety of diapers then less trash will be going into the landfill.

You harm the environment every time you choose to put plastic covered diapers on your baby’s bottom.
When you buy cloth diapers for your baby instead of disposable diapers you will save a lot of money. When you buy the diapers for your baby you can wash them and reuse them for many years to come. These diapers will actually serve their purpose through many babies. Since you only pay for the cloth versions one time then you save a lot of money by using cloth instead of disposable.
Babies who are raised wearing cloth diapers instead of disposable ones have fewer cases of diaper rash. The baby’s bottom can breathe through the diaper so they have fewer instances of heat rash than children who are raised wearing disposable diapers.

They do not have urine and feces touching their delicate skin for a long period of time. This means fewer rashes, fewer skin infections and even fewer cases of yeast type rashes on their bottoms.
Babies who wear cloth diapers potty train faster than children who wear disposable diapers do. Babies who have been raised wearing these diapers realize what the wet sensation feel like against their skin. When they start to feel the slightest amount of moisture they want the diaper changed. When they are potty training they will soon make the connection between the sensation of needed to urinate and the moist feeling in their pants. They will potty train faster because they can feel the moisture and they realize when they have had an accident.
Cloth diapers are not as easy to find as they once were. There was a time when all stores carried these items, but today they are hard to find and they are also expensive to buy.
