Because they are good for your baby

The likelihood of your child having problems with diaper rash and other irritation symptoms is much lower.

Because in the disposable diapers, a lot of chemistry is contained, which is directly on the sensitive skin of your baby. You do not take any risk with fabric diapers

Because it is cooler in cloth diapers than in disposable diapers – a fact that can be very important especially for small boys, so overheating the testicles is less likely.

Because fabric winds are much more breathing-active than disposable diapers. This makes them much better for the skin of your child. For the watertight layer, essentially two materials are used in cloth diapers: wool and PUL. The PUL (polyurethane laminate) is like modern outdoor materials and is breathable and waterproof! In my blog contribution to compare the respiratory activity of fabric winds against disposable diapers you will find a link to a very revealing video.


Because fabric diapers support the doctor’s recommended flexion-spreading position for a healthy development of the hip joints: the healthy development of the hips is permanently supported by the end of the diaper time. For more information, see my blog entry on the topic of wrap around.

Because fabric winds help your child get a feeling of “wetness” – and you can actively help your children to get dry.

Because you know the consistency and the smell of your child’s excretions – and thus an active element of viewing whether or not your child is just sick is actively watching.

Because you can actively show your child how important it is to look after themselves – many larger babies love to wash the diapers, choose one or put them in the closet. They enjoy being able to take care of themselves together with their parents.

Because they are good for you parents

The baby is aware of the connection between wet and wet-making at fabric diapers very early on and you can teach your baby as easily as his exudates feel.

Especially in very small babies the nursing time is a very important interaction time. With best overnight diapers you can enjoy a lot more, because the cost aspect is not affected by “too often” changed diapers.

Because it feels so good to the baby a nice soft fabric diaper. Cloth diapers are available in many beautiful designs and your child looks beautifully attracted.

The stress of having to buy diapers all the time falls completely away – if necessary, you can wash a fabric diaper quickly by hand.

There are many suppliers of cloth diapers, which pay attention to fair wages and environmentally friendly production – with disposable diapers, this is rarely the case.

The eternal transport of new diapers and, above all, of diaper garbage fall away – an enormous relief!

Because parents who use cloth diapers often have an increased sensitivity to the amount of their baby’s exudates and can detect possible disorders more easily and quickly.

Because you are very quick to make contact with parents who think like you!

Because they are good for the environment

best cloth diapers

A baby leaves about 6,000 disposable diapers (The estimates I know are between 4,500 and 10,950 diapers – you can find the sources in our cost comparison of fabric diapers and disposable diapers). 8-10% of the total residual waste in the household! Wrapping with fabric diapers is therefore also an important contribution to waste prevention.

In the case of the energy consumption, the fabric diapers and disposable diapers are as follows: In the fabric diapers we have the production of about 25 diapers which a baby needs about 3 years, the energy consumption for the washing (and the detergent) and possibly drying over this period. The energy consumption for the production of about 6,000 diapers over about 3 years, the enormous transport costs, the diapers from the producer to the dealer and then to the customer, the about 1 ton heavy diaper waste itself and the energy consumption for The incineration of garbage.

Because they are good for the family budget

6,000 disposable diapers cost about 900-1,500 euros depending on the manufacturer. In the case of the diaper manufacture, fabric diapers cost about 500 euros for the complete winding time.

You can also use your fabric winds for sibling children, sell them after the wrapping season or give them to needy families: fabric twins have a very long life cycle.

I have written a blog posting a comparison of the costs of fabric and disposable diapers. My approach was to present you with a cost comparison for my situation and to give you the possibility to adapt the data to your needs. You can calculate with the help of the Excel file, whether you with your framework conditions with fabric twists or with disposable bobbins more costly. To do this, you only have to overwrite my example data. From all the feedback from readers who have entered their own data there, I can say: Fabric twins always count on each case.
