Disposable diapers are costly and only end up in the landfill. There are many alternatives to disposable diapers such as cotton diapers. Various kinds of reusable cotton diapers are available at children’s clothing stores and through independent distributors. Traditional flat diapers and pins are very cheap and can save you hundreds of dollars a year. Newer fitted diapers with elastic at the legs and Velcro fasteners cost more initially, but are very convenient and pay for themselves in a few weeks compared to the cost of disposables.
