Cloth diapers have been a subject I have started thinking about since I was first introduced to them about a year or two ago. I babysat for a lady in Florida who used them for her son, and she had to teach me how to use them. To me, cloth diapers were the old fashioned pieces of white fabric that mothers kept together on their infants with pins! I think you know the kind I am talking about…
Was I ever wrong when she showed me her son’s diapers for the first time. They were thick, had color, and were put together by velcro and snaps! They even had little pads inside them that helped with leaking. I was amazed! After babysitting for her for over a year and seeing the benefits of using cloth diapers, I knew that when it came my turn to have a baby this was something I was definitely going to look into more!
Now that I am pregnant, I have been thinking about this matter a lot. Should I use cloth diapers or regular diapers, or even both kinds of diapers? So far I have thought of a list of pros and cons for using both. Feel free to add your own too!
