Are you a 'modern parent' who uses modern cloth nappies? Or are you a 'traditional parent' that swears by standard disposable nappies. Are you in a state of confusion about the differences between the two, and about what the convenience of a disposable nappy is, compared to the benefits of a reusable cloth nappy? This blog will help to explain why you should switch today.
What are modern cloth nappies?
Modern cloth nappies are a great way to save you money and help the environment. They're also super easy to use, so even if you've never used them before, you'll be a pro in no time.
Each modern cloth nappy usually comes with a waterproof part and an absorbent part. Absorbency can range from Microfibre, Bamboo, Cotton or even Hemp. The idea of a reusable nappy is that once they are washed they can be used again and again.
Once you've got your set of modern cloth nappies ready, all you need to do is lay or place your absorbency into or onto your nappy - and put it on your baby like any other nappy—just tuck in any extra material around his waist or legs so it doesn't bunch up or leak out of place when they wiggles around!
Why choose modern cloth nappies?
They're better for the environment, more cost-effective, and healthier for your baby. But why choose them?
For starters, we want to create a more sustainable future for the next generation. Disposable nappies take up to 500 years to decompose in landfills, while modern cloth nappies come apart easily and can be recycled or composted.
They're also more cost-effective. You'll save money right away by choosing modern cloth nappies instead of disposable ones—and you'll continue to save as your baby grows and with subsequent children. The average family spends about $3,000 on disposable nappies before bub toilet trains; with modern cloth nappies, that number is closer to $1000!
And finally, they're safer for your baby's health. Modern cloth nappies are made from soft materials that don't contain chemicals or dyes that can irritate skin or cause allergic reactions in some babies (as many disposable nappies do). They also allow for greater airflow around your baby's bottom than traditional disposables do—so there's less risk of diaper rash or other infections developing under those pesky plastic pants!
Are they easy to use?
Yes! Modern cloth nappies are super easy to use, and they're also incredibly convenient. In fact, once you get used to them, it's hard to imagine going back to disposables.
Cloth nappies are designed to be soft and comfortable for your baby's skin. They're also easy to put on—you just need a few minutes of practice and then you'll be an expert! There are lots of different types of cloth nappies available today, so you can find the perfect fit for your baby's shape and size.
It's true that modern cloth nappies may seem unfamiliar and intimidating to those who haven't thought about them before, but they're worth trying out. Disposables may seem convenient, but their impact on the environment can't be ignored. Modern cloth nappies are an alternative that's not only better for the environment, but for your bank account as well. They can save you thousands of dollars over the span of just a few years.
