When a new parent's baby is born, they have a choice: Should they use disposable diapers or reusable ones? Each type of diaper has its advantages and disadvantages. Strangely, recent information suggests that widely held views about the difference between disposable and reusable diapers may be inaccurate or misleading. My wife and I use disposable diapers and cloth diapers for our children. Below, you'll find out some of the reasons why we've decided to stop using cloth and start relying entirely on disposable diapers.
Disposable Diapers Save Time Of course, disposable diapers can save you a lot of time. Instead of washing them at home after your baby gets dirty, disposable diapers can be thrown away. If your baby needs to change diapers frequently (many babies urinate regularly between 3 and 5 months of age), you may find yourself spending hours a day washing your baby's diapers. Disposable items, on the other hand, save you time by allowing you to throw them away.
Disposable Diapers Offer Better Skin Care
As a loving parent, you obviously want to protect your child from diapers that can cause rashes and other health problems. If a baby's skin is wet for a long time, it is easy for him to break out in a rash. Top brands of disposable diapers (Huggies, Pampers, make love) are designed to keep baby's skin dry. While some disposable brands are better at doing this than others, many are more effective than cloth models at keeping babies dry.
Main Drawback Of Using Disposable Diapers This is the main problem with disposable diapers. They spend more money. Unlike simply cleaning and reusing a set of cloth diapers, disposable diapers require an ongoing expense to maintain a supply of diapers for your child. If your child regularly soils their diapers, the cost of brand-name disposables can be steep. While every child is different, it's safe to say that disposable diapers cost about $75 a month, while reusable diapers cost about $45 a month. Keep in mind, though, that these are only estimates. As I mentioned earlier, my spouse and I decided to use disposable diapers for our baby after experimenting with reusable materials. First of all, we don't like to wash diapers (who does?). Secondly, given our schedules, we like the convenience of disposable items. In the end, we found that after adjusting our monthly budget, we could afford the extra expense, taking into account the time and convenience provided by the disposable items. In the end, your choice may also be based on these three factors.
