Other parents are interested in cloth diapering to save money and control their budget. Disposable diapers can cost an average family, diapering an average baby, thousands of dollars over the course of 2 years (that is assuming your child potty trains at two). When Jenn and Jimmy first started cloth diapering their oldest son, disposables weren’t even an option because they had to buy groceries, plain and simple.
Another reason families choose cloth is for health reasons. Some families are very concerned about making sure that only natural fibers touch their little one’s sensitive skin. This is an important thing to know about your cloth diapering interest as you begin to decide what you want to purchase for your baby. Many products are 100% polyester and most diaper covers contain some form of plastic.
How important is convenience to your family?
If you tend to throw a pizza in the oven or bring home takeout, then go with something simple. We recommend bumGenius Original Cloth Diapers with hook & loop closures for being one-size, as easy as disposables and our most popular product by far!
If you like to cook and create, then buy a little of this and a little of that. Don’t be afraid to try something. Dabbling can be half the fun of cloth diapering! If you go for Elemental Joy, bumGenius, Flip or Econobum, your purchase is based by a 30 day satisfaction guarantee. If you don’t like it, send it back to us and we’ll refund your purchase!
Finally, what is your budget?
We have a diapering system for just about any budget. If you have about $100 to spare, you can easily have enough simple cloth diapers and covers with our Econobum or Elemental Joy systems to last you through potty training. This is a simple, non-glamorous solution — but it gets the job done at a fantastic price!
If you just want to go with a diaper that is made with organic cotton, we’d encourage you to look towards bumGenius Elemental cloth diapers. The one-piece design of the bumGenius Elemental product is simple, one-size, natural fibers and absolutely stellar in terms of absorbency.
