When Going Green Is the Cheaper Choice

In the last few years, the eco-friendly Green market has exploded into a million options for your family, and even for your baby. But most of the time, the organic, non-toxic option is so much more expensive than the traditional alternative that you have to stop and weigh the pros and cons. I know, mommy guilt! But it’s true. We all want the best for our babies, but we all have budgets, too.

But there is one choice for your baby that is both better for him AND saves you a ton of money AND gives the planet a breather. Modern cloth diapers. I say “modern” because with the growth of the Green market, cloth diapers are a hugely improved product, and you have a lot more options than you used to. They’re not what you’re probably picturing right now: flat diapers, pins, and plastic pants. No, high-tech modern cloth diapers work just like disposables and are MUCH cuter to boot. The only real difference? You can re-use them hundreds of times, and they actually work better than disposables at containing messes!

Cloth diapers will:

  • Save you $1000 per year PER KID over disposables.
  • Save 1 TON of trash from going into the landfill, per kid PER YEAR!
  • Only require you to do an extra 2-3 loads of laundry per week.
  • Prevent and help clear up diaper rash because they’re breathable.
  • Help you avoid the toxins dioxin and SAP, found in disposable diapers.
  • Match all your baby’s cutest outfits.

Modern cloth diapers fasten with velcro or snaps instead of pins, and they come in cute mod prints and bright colors with cotton or hemp or bamboo absorbent cores on the inside and high-tech, waterproof, laminated fabrics on the outside, all of which can be washed like normal clothes in your washer and dryer. Plus, you’ll never run out of diapers in the middle of the night again.

Interested in learning more? Well, the only downside to the explosion of the cloth diaper market is that there are so many options now it can be confusing. It took me months of research on dozens of websites (but I’m nerdy like that) to feel like I understood my options. I don’t think it should be that hard to figure out what you’re putting on your baby’s bum, so I created 29Diapers.com, a blog that aims to answer ALL your cloth diapering questions in one place. If you don’t see an answer to your question on the site, you can even contact me directly, and I’ll answer your question personally. I don’t want confusion to be the one thing that keeps you away from all that cloth diapering can offer your family!
