“Simply Everything You Need for Baby” 
Most newborns go through 8-12 diapers a day, most packages of newborndiapers are about 100 diapers for $25 (give or take). That puts you goingthrough a box of newborn diapers in about 10 days! Spending an average of $75a month! Purchase a set of 10 cloth diapers for $100 and you will be savingmoney after 6 weeks of using them! NEVER buy more diaper sizes! These areall ONE size! You can use these from birth to potty training!
You will put out a
small amount of money towards washing these diapers(use 1TBS of laundry soap per load). That's it for other costs. With disposablediapers consider the cost of Diaper cream (way more diaper rashes happen withdisposable diapers), Diaper Genie, and Diaper Genie bags (you'll go throughthose $5 bags pretty quick).No pinning, No folding, No complications. Simply put the insert(s) into the pocketof the diaper, and snap the diaper on the baby just like you would a normal
diaper! Super easy! When ready to clean, take the inserts out of the diaper andwash with diaper! Line dry the inserts to maintain a stain-free insert and keepthem as white as new!
Why Use Cloth Diapers?
 You'll love how cute they are! You need more reason than that? Here are somegreat reasons to choose cloth diapers for your baby's health, your pocketbook, theenvironment, and convenience.
Easy to Use -
Cloth diapers often bring up the icky thought of swishing old fashioned diapers inthe toilet. Not only is this NOT necessary with modern fabrics and washingmachines, even if you decide to wash out diapers before putting them in thediaper pail, you can use a convenient diaper sprayer or pail system to do thiswithout a huge mess.Once you try modern cloth diapers, you'll be hooked. They are as easy to use asdisposables. .Pocket diapers feature a pocket in the back where you can slip in an absorbentinsert. The inside of the diaper is made with a soft wicking fabric so the moisturegoes through to the insert and baby feels dry longer. Best of all, messes don'tstick to the suedecloth or fleece inner lining, making it easy to shake off the messinto the toilet.
Better for Baby
Disposable diapers are actually more likely to cause diaper rashes than properlycleaned cloth diapers. Not only do they tend to be left on the baby longer (leadingto ammonia and bacteria buildup) but they are also more likely to cause rashesfor a variety of other reasons.We don't know what effect the chemicals used in disposable diapers have for thelong term health of you baby. We do know that disposable diapers contain superabsorbent polymers, petroleum based ingredients (such as plastic) and traces of chemicals used in manufacturing.Baby boys may be at increased risk due to the heat build up in disposable diapers.While the link between infertility and disposable diapers has not been proven, theOctober 2000 issue of 
 Archives of Disease in Childhood 
speculates that the rise ininfertility may be partially due to the heat build up in disposable diapers. Withtemperatures inside a disposable as much as 1.8 degrees higher there is thepotential for damage to the baby's genitals.Many babies are allergic to the dyes and glues used in disposable diapers. Myconcern is that if these chemicals are so well absorbed that they can cause a rashthis severe, then what is it doing that we can't see? We know that these chemicaldyes are linked to liver problems and other long term health problems.
In their September 2005 issue the American Academy of Pediatrics magazine, notexactly known for being a a promoter of natural health care, published an articleabout Diaper Dye Dermatitis.Disposable diapers also come apart - leaving your baby at risk of choking on theparts of the diaper. The absorbent gel (sodium polyacrylate) inside the diapershas been linked to scrotal bleeding in boys, is fatal when inhaled by cats, and cancause choking. Ingestion of as little as 5 grams (hardly more than a spoonful) of sodium polyacrylate has been knownto cause death in humans and animals.
Cloth Diapers and the Environment
 The Real Diaper Association estimates that 27.4 Billion disposables are used eachyear in the US alone. Cloth diapers will hold up to 75-200 washes or more. Simplelogic alone tells you that recycling diapers makes sense. The Real Diaper Association also states that cloth is better for the environment fora number of reasons including:"Disposable diapers generate sixty times more solid waste and use twenty timesmore raw materials, like crude oil and wood pulp.""The manufacture and use of disposable diapers amounts to 2.3 times more waterwasted than cloth.""Over 300 pounds of wood, 50 pounds of petroleum feedstocks and 20 pounds of chlorine are used to produce disposable diapers for one baby EACH YEAR."Disposable diapers are not as sanitary as their pure white look would indicate. They are full of chemicals and are not actually sterilized during processing. Thesediapers are almost never dumped into the toilet (as required by law) before beingtossed away. This puts millions of tons of human waste into our landfills, includingthe dozens of potential viruses and even more bacteria into the landfills where itcan leach into groundwater. Disposable diapers take hundreds of years todecompose.
How Do You Wash Cloth Diapers?
I recommend using the "Dry Pail" method for storing your diapers betweenwashings. The wet pail method involves a pail of messy water sitting aroundbreeding bacteria. Wet pails are hard on your back and pose a drowning hazardfor young children. To use a dry pail simply choose a diaper pail or trash can with a lid. It is ok if thereis some air flow as this can actually reduce ammonia fumes. Store your diapers inthe pail until you are ready to wash them. You can use a few drops of tea tree oilor other essential oil to reduce odors.Breastfed baby poop will easily wash out. You can shake the diaper over the toiletto remove any solids from older babies before putting them into the diaper pail.Don't worry about removing everything, any remaining mess will wash out.When you are ready to wash, the diaper pail liner can be used to carry the diapers
