Gees…I just did the math and figured out that I’ve used approximately one thousand, four hundred and seventy-two disposable diapers in eight months. We go through a case of 184 diapers about every three to four weeks. Including wipes, that’s almost seventy bucks a month. I’m going on a diaper run later this afternoon. Should I try cloth diapers? I’m a little nervous about the idea. Do they leak? I don’t know anyone personally who has tried them. The disposable ones are easy. My daughter’s skin has been so healthy, but I want to be environmentally friendly. Saving some cash wouldn’t be bad either.
The choice between using cloth or disposable diapers is a matter of personal preference. Deciding which one is best depends on several factors including lifestyle, concern for the environment, cost, convenience, skin care and other health concerns.
What do you think I should do?
