Your child will spend an average of 3 years in diapers after birth. Making the decision to use cloth is an easy way to drastically reduce that number by 6 months to a year. Modern cloth diapering has become so much easier than traditional diapers. Natural and very simple to use the benefits to using cloth diapers are not only seen in the beginning but at the end as well.(Like they used to say on Reading Rainbow.) "You don't have to take my word for it."
