Did you know that a baby can go through over 8,000 diapers in a year? That's a lot of consumer waste and a lot of money spent for something that often doesn't even always last 30 minutes. If you child is anything like mine, you've lost clean diapers before you even finished the change!
Well, there is a better way--better for the earth, better for your budget, and better for baby. Mothers today are learning to adopt the traditional practices of yesteryear by making the decision to use cloth diapers. They are 100% reusable, can last through multiple children if properly cared for, and come in a variety of colors and hi-tech or organic materials that weren't available when our mothers and grandmothers were cloth diapering. In short, these ain't your mama's cloth diapers!
