My second batch of cloth diaper has finally arrived. I ordered this in bulk for a cheaper price. We began to switch him to cloth diaper when he was 6 months old when we observed him scratching at the velcro area. He would scratch at the same spot constantly until the skin became reddish in color. This is worrying us. Hence we used those plain white cloth diapers on him while looking for a better solution to the problem. The cons of this plain white cloth diaper is that it will easily loosen off when my active baby is crawling around.
I was introduced by a friend to cloth diapers and even invited to join the cloth diapering group in facebook for babies. From there, my knowledge on cloth diapering shines. Kenji boy no longer scratch his skins and his rashes at this buttock area diminish when we continue to use the diapers. We started up with 8 pcs of cloth diaper, and we are beginning to re-stock them every now and then.
The only cons of cloth diapers is that we need to wash them, and it took at least half a day for them to dry under the sun. Putting this away, the cloth diapers are serving more benefits that those disposable ones. First, they are economical. They are reusable for a long duration of time. Kenji boy is still wearing those he is wearing when he was 6 months old. The diapers are size adjustable, hence it is suitable from newborn till toddlerhood. Other than economical, prolong usage will also help to green to earth (waste elimination). I think we will continue to use this until Kenji boy is fully potty trained.
