How-to decide between cloth and disposable nappies
Making an informed choice between cloth and disposable nappies all comes down to information. Here are a few things to consider when deciding whether to opt for cloth or disposable nappies.
Comparisons have been made over the years between the cost of cloth nappies versus the cost of disposables but they’re often not like for like, making it really difficult to get a true comparison. But in general, even when taking into consideration the cost of detergent, cloth nappies are likely to be cheaper.
Even if cloth nappies do work out to be cheaper than disposables, do you really have the time or inclination to clean and wash your cloth nappies?
Do cloth nappies have less of an environmental impact on the world? Again, findings do differ depending on which company has undertaken the research but it appears that cloth nappies have less of an environmental impact than disposables.
There is very little difference in the rates of nappy rash between babies that wear cloth nappies and those that wear disposables.
