It saves us money, and helps manage waste and pollution. My husband prefers it because he feels it "protects" our babys bottom better when he falls, and he would rather not have our child wearing a "garbage bag"

When my first son was born I was grossed out that chemicals and other unknowns are used to make disposable diapers. I wanted a safer alternative and I wanted something to reduce the amount of trash being used. I also liked the idea that our family was saving money while minimizing the amount of waste!

I love everything about cloth diapering. It's pocket and environmental friendly, there are no nasty chemicals, and it looks adorable on any babies tush. There are so many options on cloth no matter what you budget may be. To me, cloth diapering is my contribution to making this world a better place.

I chose cloth because I wanted to get away from using harmful chemicals found in disposable diapers. It was an added bonus that they were adorable and helped the environment and our wallet. I have loved making the switch to cloth and hope I can encourage others to do the same.

Save the environment while having the babies bum look most adorable! I also don't care for the chemicals used in disposables.

I want to help the community I serve as a birthworker know how easy it is to shift into reusable cloth diapers & support them in that decision.

I chose cloth after my loving sister always raved about how my darling niece has never, ever had one diaper rash, ever! My little sweety on the other hand, was always getting rashes from her disposable diapers. I also wanted to save money. I feel badly for not cloth diapering my first child. I still take pride in knowing that because of the switch, hundreds of less disposable diapers are sitting around slowly decomposing for my children's, children's, children's, etc... to be dealing with down the road. It is never too late to make the switch.

I chose cloth because they are better for the environment, it is less expensive in the long run, my sons bottom is less rashy, they are reusable, and I believe they are better in the long run.

I choose to cloth my own children because I wanted a healthier option. When looking into the chemicals that were being used in disposable diapers, I knew that was not a product I would want to use on my child.

I knew I wanted to cloth diaper with my second son, because I had seen enough for it to make absolute sense, and I had no desire to throw another 3 years of disposable diapers into already overwhelmed landfills. I didn't really know what I was doing at first, so it was a dive-right-in experience, and it wasn't until my son was about 8 months that I discovered a cloth diaper store in our town, ran out of the owners' front rooms in their home, so I spent ALOT of time on the web. Because of my research, I am even more thankful about my decision to use cloth, since the chemicals in disposables are quite frankly criminal and I am incensed that they are even allowed. I am also a single mom on a super tight budget, and I wouldn't have known what to do had I not known about reusable nappies. I am now impassioned to reach out to the impoverished areas in Memphis where kids are left in unsanitary and toxic diapers all day and educate families about REAL diapers and how much of a difference they make.
