Cloth Diaper Blog Hop! {Why I Love Cloth Diapers!}

It's time for the weekly Cloth Diaper Blog Hop hosted by My Cloth Diaper Stash!This week's topic is a fun one- Why I Love Cloth Diapers!

There are plenty of reasons why I love cloth! My first reason and the reason I started cloth diapering is simple, it saves us money! Instead of buying a box of disposables every two weeks, that costs me over $20 just to throw away, I only have to buy disposables once every two months or so! (We still use them occasionally). That is saving me a ton of money! Money I am happy to spend elsewhere!

Another reason I love cloth diapers is they are beyond cute! There is nothing cute about a baby in a disposable diaper, sorry but it's just not cute! But put a baby in cloth and they look adorable!! Seriously how cute is Isaac in these pics of him in cloth diapers?! 

Another reason I love cloth diapers is that they are better for my baby! Have you ever read what disposable diapers have in them?! There are a lot of chemicals in those things! I don't like the idea of sticking chemicals on my baby's bum! With cloth, he gets a comfy and safe diaper to wear that is chemical free! 

One more important reason I love cloth; I'm not harming the environment by using cloth! I find it extremely disgusting that it takes 500 years for one disposable diaper to decompose!  GROSS! By not using disposables on a regular basis I am keeping less out of our landfills and out of the precious ground we walk on! 

Why do you LOVE cloth diapers??

Comment below or blog about it and link up! 


  1. I love cloth diapers for four main reasons: (1) cheaper, (2) cuter, (3) better for baby's skin, (4) more environmentally friendly.

  2. Because my baby's not here yet, but I can go to my room and look at my stash and think, "this is all I need. for about 2 years. This adorable stash that didn't cost me $200"

    Of course I'll add to it (it is an addiction) But still! I know it's better for my baby, no matter what anyone has to say.

  3. Love the pics of the boys! I agree - cuteness is a big factor in my love for CD's!

    1. Lindsey both pictures are Isaac! Do they look that much alike? LOL

  4. I agree, way cuter! We didn't use cloth until my daughter was at least 4 months old, and when I look at the pictures of her in disposables, that's all I notice! I'm pathetic, I know. Hehe.

  5. Yup, yup, yup! All of those reasons. I love my cloth so much that I'm actually kind of dreading potty training

  6. So true! I love how much healthier they are and their cuteness!

  7. I love how diapers look drying on the clothesline. Does my heart good!

  8. I've really enjoyed cloth diapering! We are still adding to the stash at this point (2 month old daughter), but we've definitely saved money. I do use disposables at times - sometimes at night and usually when out and about - however, I would like to get to the point where we only use cloth. We are also using cloth wipes which are easy and super cheap!! And I agree - cloth diapers are adorable! :)

  9. I love cloth diapers for the same reasons you list. The first cloth diapers that ever caught my eye were BumGenius, I just adored Albert and Lovelace. I've only been using pre-folds and covers with my daughter though, so I got those patterns (since they're discontinued!!) in Flip covers. I LOVE THEM.

  10. I love cloth diapers because I have always been suspicious of the nasty gel that comes out of disposable diapers...also how some disposables instantly make my children get rashes. CLoth is better for the environment, my budget and my babies!

  11. I love cloth diapers for the reasons you stated plus they seem so much comfier for my baby than disposables did. And I don't like the weird smell that disposables get after she poops in them. So much worse than in a cloth diaper, maybe because of the chemicals!
