A newborn baby in a family is certainly the biggest joy in life. But changing diapers is probably not as cute as babies are. They have to be changed every two to three hours and from the time your baby is born until become potty trained you have to change from 5,000 to 8,000 diapers. Nowadays there are several diapering options that are available and you can choose the one that is best for the baby and for the family budget. And of course for the planet, though some studies claim that there is no significant difference in the environmental impact between disposables and cloth.

In the 1960s, cloth diapers were the only diapering solution, but times changed and disposable diapers appeared. It was a well welcomed relief of the extra laundry for the new parents and the disposable market boomed. As a result, 95 percent of all babies in America wear disposables rather than cloth. Almost 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used each year in the United States and this represents more than 3.4 million tons of waste dumped into landfills.
