Cloth diapers for newborns are slowly (and rightly) gaining popularity among Indian parents, where disposable diaper use has decreased dramatically over the last decade, particularly in urban India.

Disposable diapers are prone to causing diaper rash due to the use of chemicals, especially in India's hot and humid climate. They are also expensive (the average toilet training age for a baby is now around 2 years) and harmful to the environment. Given the numerous disadvantages, parents are gradually opting for safer diapering options, and cloth diapering is typically that option.

But beginning with cloth diapering can be intimidating and confusing for many parents as modern cloth diapers today come in a wide range of varieties where most modern cloth diapers are divided into two parts: the waterproof part, which prevents leaks and keeps the mess inside, and the absorptive part, which absorbs the urine.

But you don't need to worry, because this article will help you debunk the myths surrounding cloth diapers in India, understand how newborn cloth diapers work, and easily incorporate them into your daily childcare routine.

What are cloth diapers?

A cloth diaper or a cloth nappy or a reusable nappy is a reusable diaper made out of layers of organic cotton which provides more breathability than disposables do. It contains a snap button that allows you to change the diaper's size based on your baby's weight. Furthermore, they are highly suitable for all climates, particularly hot/humid Indian weather.

Superbottom cloth diapers for baby have unique features and functions and are composed of natural fibers, so you can pick the one that best meets your needs.  

Why SuperBottoms Cloth Diapers Are the Best Choice For Newborns in India?

No matter what country you live in – warmer, or colder country - the USA, Canada, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Oman, Armenia or India, cloth diapers are the best choice over disposable diapers for newborn babies. Here are a few reasons why cloth diapers should make it to your stash:

  • Cost saving with Cloth Diapers  

Cloth diapers can range in price from a few hundred to several thousands, depending on whether you choose a UNO or a basic diaper. Then, ideally, a waterproof cloth bag is required to store these diapers correctly in a stash. 

So, for as little as Rs 2,000-5000, one can set up a cloth diapering stash. However, this has the potential to last nearly 36 months, which is when babies are naturally toilet trained. Consider how much money you would have spent on disposables over this period (an average of 4 diapers per day for 2-3 years for Rs 10/diaper = Rs. 30000 to Rs. 40000). Simply switching to cloth diapers can save a significant amount of money over time.

  • Work well with the Indian Weather 

Many parents at least once have reported getting a nasty rash while diapering their baby. This is especially visible during the hot Indian summers. Many doctors advise parents to use fewer disposable diapers during the summer or in humid climates. 

Cloth diapers, on the other hand, are more breathable and better suited for hot weather. They don’t cause a rash as they are made up of 100% organic cotton which is very gentle when applied to the baby's skin.  

  • Skin Friendly 

Cloth diapers are made from organic cotton, so they contain no chemicals and are completely skin friendly.

While chemicals are used in disposable diapers to increase absorbency. These chemicals can be irritating to a baby's sensitive skin and hence can also cause rashes. 

  • Easily Washable 

Cloth diaper washing is a hassle-free process that requires only a good laundry treatment and patience. Make sure there is no detergent buildup left after washing; if there is, run the diapers through a very hot water cycle to remove any additives or detergent that may irritate your baby's skin.

However, some brands, such as SuperBottoms, have developed detergents that make diaper washing completely effortless. SuperBottoms Cloth Diaper Detergent can be used for machine and hand washing diapers. The best part is that it is 100% compatible with Indian household water.
