Op, Your question is out of context, you would have asked:

Trekking OR using private car, which is preferable?

Back to the topic:

It depends on financial power of a family.

To some, for Disposable Diaper:
It saves time, it's more convenient and also child friendly.

To the poor, for Disposable Diaper:
It drains the family purse, make the woman lazy, and decreases the suffering that is needed to bond the mother with the child.

rexxx: Let get your opinion on which diaper you prefer and why.

Washable or reusable cloth diaper
The reusable cloth diaper isn’t what it used to be.  Some cloth diapers now have double or triple layers and a multiply, fiber-filled strip, making them more absorbent than older styles. Some styles of cloth diapers now come with Velcro strips, eliminating the need for those large safety pins.  You can easy wash them at home using your hand or washing machine.

Disposable diaper
There are also various types and styles of disposable diapers, ranging from simple plastic covered paper diapers to the newest high-tech, cartoon covered, absorbent gel material filled, elastic legged disposables.


The question now which one do you prefer and also will use considering our economic environment
Re: Disposable Or Washable Diaper Which Is Better by Nobody: 5:11pm On Dec 28, 2012
I have done both. Even to the extreme that a single cloth diaper cost $30
I prefer cloth because they don't contain the nasty chemicals that sposies do. I can buy natural fiber cloth diapers.

Cloth is cuter. You can't embroider a sposie.

Depending on how you chose to cloth it could be cheaper or more expensive. For me it was more expensive but I could use the diapers on all my children so in that regard it saved money.

Ill be back with cute fluff pictures.

Fluff!

Cloth diapers are SOOOOOO freaking easy in this day. You dont have to have pins for them. They make things called "Snappis" that replace the pins. They have velcroe and snap options even. 1 diaper (called one-size) can last a child from newborn to potty learning.

Siena: Disposables get my vote, I can't remember seeing terry diapers in recent years.

Terry diapers often cause diaper rash. I haven't observed the same when using disposables.

.......And so do disposable diapers.

Now your username makes sense lol grin

I've always wondered.

Are you comparing cloth diaper to disposable diaper? Last time I bought a diaper was 3 years ago, I don't remember a pin .
Re: Disposable Or Washable Diaper Which Is Better by rexxx: 6:22pm On Dec 28, 2012
The reason of this thread is to expose people to the idea that washable diapers have improved and is now more easy to use for example you don't need to use safety pin and the nappy are just shape like sanitary pads so u are not washing any big towel. How many families can afford to spend so much on disposable diaper. A cartoon of huggies diaper goes for between 8k to 10k. How many families can afford to spend so much. Washable diaper has advantages from economical to environmental advantages so why won't one consider it as an option
Re: Disposable Or Washable Diaper Which Is Better by mysticgal(f): 6:22pm On Dec 28, 2012

Actually my username has nothing to do with it. But good guess. My username is a nickname given to the sniper shooter in 2000 (google John Allen Muhammad).

Cloth and disposable can't compare. Cloth is superior angry

Washable diapers can be reused. You can't reuse a sposie.

Sposies can't grow with your children.

They have hybrids. The cuteness of cloth but convenience of sposies.

Goldieluks:


So your implying that washable diaper poses as a risk to the health and safety of a child?
Where did you get your supposed "theory" from?

washable diapers are unhealthy in many ways. When a child urinates in such it has poor absorbtion which leads to the child getting rashes. And most mothers don't wash this napkins well using anticeptic so it retains dirt and germs which affects the child,

You can't match a sposie to an outfit. 1 pack of sposies have uniform designs. You can see in the pic I posted none of the diapers were similar.

Fwiw my children are in sposies now grin

I'm not a sposie hater. Just a cloth lover
