1. No nasty chemicals on babies skin
2. They're better for the environment
3. Less expensive in the long run
4. They're cuter!
Just to name a few.
After tons and tons of research, I decided to try out 2 brands. Gdiapers & Swaddlebees. Both have great reviews but are very different.
The Gdiaper is a 'hybrid' diaper. It comes with the option to purchase cloth and/or disposable inserts. The cloth are made of hemp, cotton & micro fleece. The disposables are flushable, compostable and can be thrown in the trash but WILL break down until traditional disposable diapers. I could go on all day but if you want to know more about them visit their website (gdiapers.com)
The Swaddlebees we purchased are the Infant Simplex All-in-one. They're all cloth, a PUL outer shell with Birdseye cotton inside. (http://www.swaddlebees.com/All-in-One-Diapers)
I ordered the small sizes in both of these for now. After we get to try them out I might like one over the other and just pick one brand to stick with.
So here's the beginning of the collection!
Here is 32 weeks and 3 days!
