We started our cloth diaper journey quite late into my daughter’s toddler life. She started wearing cloth diapers a few days before her 3rd birthday, that’s 9 months ago (she still wears them at night until now…shhhh hahaha) Even so, I have saved around Php10,000 already from those 9 months alone. How much more if we started earlier?
You see, cloth diapers are amazing and should I have known earlier that there were awesome yet affordable brands like Dandy Nappy available locally, I would have tried using them on Lana when she was much younger.
If somebody asks me now why I’d choose cloth over sposies in a heartbeat? I’d gladly tell her these things:
Reasons Why We Love Cloth Diapers
By using cloth, you are actually doing something good for the environment. In the United States alone, 18 billion used sposies are produced annually. Shocking numbers, but this is reality! Used diapers sit in landfills for about 200 years or so, imagine?!?
At an average, Lana uses 6 of sposies each day, totaling to 2,190 per year. And how much each one costs again? Some costs P40, the cheapest we used was P10. So let’s say at P10, total would be P21,900 right? Holy guacamole! Lots of cash went into the drain, or should I say, landfill?
Here’s a good comparison table by Mommy Michelle:
Lana’s bum is so sensitive that it needed Vandol after each diaper change. Everything has changed after we switched to cloth, no more diaper rash since then. Disposables are just so full of unnecessary chemicals which are causing these rashes.
Trendy and Cute
Cloth diapers are trendy and available in all sort of cute prints and types. Dandy Nappy has a lot of good prints to choose from and choosing the best can be very overwhelming! When it comes to brands, I suggest trying a few brands first before choosing the best one for you.
Cloth diapers come in various types and each has a corresponding price tag. The cheapest we bought so far was P190 (bulk price). Prices could go as high as 4000 for a diaper, crazy! But guess what, there is a market for that super duper expensive cloth. I personally don’t believe that one has to spend so much on cloth diapers, a stash or 30 will do. Beyond that, it’s a luxury, which I personally think defeats the purpose of using cloth diapers to “save money”. But then again, to each his own. If you can afford it, splurge!
They Have Resale Value
Wash your diapers well and you can sell them for at least 50% of their original price, even higher.
