Cloth diapers aren’t anything like they used to be, and they are actually becoming more trendy as people have started to want to be more thrifty and environmentally aware.

Some varieties are structured and fasten exactly the same as disposable diapers, but with velcro or snaps, so they are just as easy to use. We’ve compared cloth diapers to disposables to help you choose which method is best for your family. Read our research on our sister site, Living on the Cheap.
