    Default Cloth vs disposable nappies

    I read somewhere that cloth nappies are better. Any reasons why this is the case? Is there anything wrong with disposables?

    Better for what?
    They are probably better for the environment and your budget, the rest is an individual preference.

    Yeah I don't know, it just said cloth is better. I assumed better for Baby, but was thinking how are they better for baby which is why I asked the question.

    Some babies might have a reaction to disposables if they have sensitive skin I suppose?
    I think its just personal choice otherwise.

    Default Cloth vs disposable nappies

    Better for the environment because every disposable used ends up in land fill etc and they are all still there, who knows how long they will take to actually break down? That's a lot of damage being done!

    With a quick research you can find what chemicals are in disposables. Why expose your kids to excess chemicals and nasties in life if you don't really have to?

    They can also be great on the pocket, you can start a reasonable stash pretty cheap and they can last until your child is done with them, or multi children

    Oh, did I mention they are cute

    I do cloth at home and disposables while out, it's a personal preference to what works best for you.

    I saw on the interent somewhere that before sposies were invented, 7% (or might have said 12% not sure) of babies got nappy rash. Today 70% something of babies get Nappy rash.
