1. No Yuki chemicals on your babies jewels such as
sodium polyacralate (the shiny crystals in the diaper that can stick to babies skin causing skin reactions.
Environmental Health tested 6 leading cloth diapers and 6 leading disposable diapers and discovered that the emissions from one disposable diaper were high enough to produce asthma-like symptoms in mice. and Dioxin both of these are just the tip of the iceberg but they are two of the worst and are known to be linked to cancer.

2.reducing your carbon footprint. The manufacturing of disposables takes over 1 million metric tons of wood pulp and 75,000+ of metric tons of plastic each year.

3.almost $2500+ with cloth Disposables are expensive! and you throw them away just to buy them again. with cloth its a one time buy!

4. During potty training time children who have been in cloth will recognize sooner when they are wet vs a baby in disposable diapers.

5. if there were ever a Zombie apocalypse we wouldn’t be making risky trips out because we ran out of diapers. Hahaha

CONS:

1.you are washing diapers every other day. sometimes you forget your on your last diaper and then you got a naked baby running around.

2.stripping diapers, every 6 months you gotta strip the diapers to get them smelling and feeling fresh and new again. Stripping consists of very hot washes and the hanging them out to dry (preferred) the sun pulls out any stains.

3.Bulky diapers! sometimes cloth diapers are big and bulky and if you double or triple insert its gonna be hard finding cloths to fit over them.

4.you gotta fold diapers just MORE LAUNDRY TO FOLD or you can throw them in a basket and hide them under your bed haha

5.if you loose power for a few days you’ll be hand washing and hang drying,
