- Baby’s Health
- The Environment

#1 Cost of Diapers
A recent study found that families using disposable diapers should budget between $150-$175 a month for at least the first 6 months’s of a baby’s life. By comparison, cloth diapers and Waste-to-Energy disposables through Tinkle Belle, land from about $172-$256 a month. Surprise! Choosing the most eco-friendly and baby-safe option can fit into the average diaper budget.
#2 Early Potty Training
On average, babies who cloth diaper tend to potty train about 12-16 months earlier than those who use disposables. Imagine the money not spent if you stop diaper a year earlier, it could be at least $1,000 in savings. WOW!
Why do babies in cloth potty train so much sooner? Cloth diapers do not wick away moisture like disposable diapers. It is easier for children to associate the releasing of their urine and feeling wet. And they don’t like being wet for too long! This encourages them to do what they need to in order to stay dry; hold their pee/poo and use the toilet.
Disposable diapers are convenient because you can toss them straight in the trash after use. With a diaper service, you have this same level of convenience while still enjoying the benefits of cloth diapers. Setting out your weekly diaper bag is as simple as taking out the trash!
There is no need to scrape, spray, or rinse your diaper before sending it to us. Leave your dirty diapers outside your front door, and we take them as is. We carry all the creams, wipes and other accessories you may need. Forget trips to the grocery store for diaper supplies!
#4 Baby's Health
The average disposable diaper contains questionable ingredients such as dioxins, unspecified fragrances, plastics, chlorine bleach and sodium polyacrylate. While those chemicals are excellent at absorbing, they are linked to diaper rashes and other nasty things. This super absorbent quality also results in parents not changing their baby’s diaper as often as needed. Diaper rashes then pop up when baby’s bum is exposed to urine and feces for too long.
On the other hand, cloth diapers are made from entirely baby-safe materials. Organic cotton and bamboo terry are soft, absorbent, and absolutely free of any harmful chemicals. Parents can rest easy with these chemical-free diapers wrapped around their little one.
#5 The Environment
This is a big reason to cloth diaper. You’ll gain some peace knowing your not contributing to the statistic of disposable diapers being the third most common item in landfills.
It’s true. Just imagine this – a baby can use over 2,000 diaper in their first year of life! It then takes over 500 years for a single disposable diaper to decompose in a landfill. That means every single disposable diaper ever used is still sitting in a landfill. While cloth diapers do require energy and water to clean each week, it’s nothing compared to the manufacturing and accumulation of disposable diapers. A single cloth diaper can be reused for up to 7 years and by multiple families – one cannot deny they are better for our planet in the long run.
