Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Which is more expensive, cloth or disposable?
A: In the long run, disposable diapers will be more expensive than cloth diapers. The main reason is because cloth diapers are washable and reusable. And some say babies in cloth diapers potty train earlier than those in disposable! Most parents do prefer disposable diapers because of their convenience-and they are cheaper in the short run.
Q: What causes diaper rash?
A: Friction rash is the most common rash. It affects all babies at one time or another. It is common on areas where friction is most pronounced, like the inner thighs or under the elastic of diapers that are too tight. It is a good idea to "air" baby out for awhile! Irritant rash affects baby's bottom. Generally, it comes from contact with stool enzymes or irritants such as harsh soaps, baby wipes, detergents, or topical medicines.
