Several years ago, long before I ever thought about becoming a parent, I heard about a family member who had begun using cloth diapers for her baby. And to be honest, my initial gut reaction was: that’s disgusting.
It’s true that today’s society is often criticized for embracing a “throw away” culture, and I agree it’s a valid complaint. We’re far more wasteful now than we’ve ever been, in a lot of ways.
But let’s be honest here – when it comes to poopy diapers…
Doesn’t it make sense to throw them away?
Before coming to some grand conclusion, I want to take a deep dive into cloth diapers (not literally, of course – eww) and examine how they stack up against disposable diapers.
