You’ll find that there are countless opinions on whether you should switch from disposable to cloth diapers and why. We’ve made your decision easier by providing three practical cloth diaper benefits to consider so you don’t have to second guess whether using cloth is the best option. No one expects you to single handedly save the eco-system, but the diaper you select can contribute to the welfare of your children and their personal health. Here are 3 benefits and features of the cloth diaper to consider so that you can break toxic traditions.
You’ll find tons of variety on the cloth diaper market. A common option is the all-in-two diaper cloth, which offers two separate pieces: a waterproof cover and an absorbent cloth insert. Another alternative is the pre-folds. These have three sections. The center section is thicker with additional fabric layers than the outer sections. Lastly, there’s the hybrid. Hybrid cloth diapers are straightforward, easy to use for transitioners. They bridge the gap between cloth and disposables as different types of inserts may be interchanged with the cover. A great tip is to skip newborn sizes in the baby cloth. Since baby is growing at a rapid speed, we suggest that you start baby on cloth diapers a couple of weeks after birth.

If you’re a stylish parent, then your baby should be too. Why not use diapers as a fashion statement.
Modern cloth systems come in an array of fashion-inspired styles. With a wide collection of cloths, you can choose a design to express an extension of your baby’s personality. Unlike disposables, where it is most common to want to cover the diaper with pants or shorts, you can showcase the cloth diaper as an article of clothing. Cloth offers adorable options that disposables just can’t match.

If you, like most parents are concerned about costs, you may have already observed that diaper cloths are slightly more expensive than disposables. When you consider the longevity of diaper clothes you can still count on saving yourself money over time because you don’t need to restock as frequently.
Unlike disposable diapers, it is easy to find cloth solutions that are both eco-friendly and effective in performance. By choosing a cloth option you are helping the environment and making a safe fabric choice for your precious baby’s soft tushy. This cost efficient option seems like the best choice!

Written by Christine Barlow, Inventor of 5 Phases Eco-Friendly Baby Bottle System
Mom Christine Barlow is the inventor of 5 Phases eco-friendly and non-toxic baby bottles, the safest and healthiest way to bottle feed your baby. Her inspiration in creating an alternative to traditional feeding bottles came after the birth of her 1lb 7oz micro-preemie baby. Having a compromised child, she became aware how environmental factors were affecting our children. With all the concerns of plastics and infants being the most vulnerable, she felt there was a need for more options for parents who wanted to use glass. She knew she had to act – and the 5 Phases Hybrid Glass Baby Bottles were born.
5 Phases is dedicated to helping families achieve a healthier and organic lifestyle. Starting with baby, they develop products keeping both the environment and health of your family in mind. And when it comes to your baby nothing else will do – Christine knows, she’s a mom too!
