The nappy debate

Being as this is my first child i will base this study off resesarch and 3 years spent in childcare changing many many bottoms. So, cloth vs disposable.


  • Fast
  • Easy to use
  • disposable
  • Can buy differnet sizes and styles for growing bub
  • contains chemicles
  • Some are biodegradable
  • Easy to use when out and about
  • Absorbant
  • Costly over time


  • No longer just terry toweling
  • Can be size adjustible
  • Large upfront cost but cheaper in the long run
  • Time consuming washing
  • no chemicals
  • Need changing sooner as not as absorbant

Cloth nappies can cause nappy rash but so can cheap disaposible. There are liners you can use for the cloth ones that you can throw out for #2’s that save time in scraping off the mess when you need to wash them. The one big thing cloth has going for it is cost and if you are planning to be a stay at home mum this can be a deciding factor. What is the cost? A three pack of the new style cloth are about $40-$50. Dispoables are about $30-$50 for an 80pack. For me i think i will go a combination of the two. Cloth for everyday use, then disposible for when im short on time or out and about. Save money and time šŸ™‚
