There are many different ways to raise a baby, and the Internet is full of articles on the “right” way to do things. Ultimately you have to decide for yourself, but it’s difficult to ignore the benefits of cloth diapering. It could be one of the best things you do for your baby, and it has a positive impact on our planet, too!
This article from Babble dispels six myths about cloth diapering that you may have heard. People talk about how they’re more expensive, gross, complicated, and difficult to clean, but these things simply aren’t true!

All diapers (including disposables) are supposed to have their contents flushed down a toilet, so the only difference is that instead of tossing a disposable in the trash, you toss the cloth in the washing machine.
Even using just one cloth diaper a day can make a difference. Check out the selection here at Thanks Mama!
