Funny thing is, the thought of using a diaper pin scares me to death! Thankfully diaper pins are a thing of the past.
But there are a ton more reasons to cloth diaper. Not in any particular order:
1) Cost savings- For disposables, it's expensive to make them, buy them, and dispose of them.
2) Health- Disposable diapers contain dioxin, TBT, and sodium polyacrylate. Look 'em up. They're not so awesome.
3) Environment- a disposable diaper takes roughly 500 years to decompose. 500 years. That's about 20 generations.
My main reasons, other than just because I'd always wanted to, were cost savings & the environment. I'd like to say that it was for Hazelnut's health... but it wasn't. I like to save money, & I didn't know about all the health stuff until later.
What I really love is that even using cloth diapers part time makes a huge difference. How cool is that?
Have you ever considered cloth diapering? Do you do it now? What are your reasons?
