Babble Best Picks:
Cloth diapers aren't always the most convenient or cheapest option, but it's a choice that's healthy for your baby and the planet. Plus, they've come a long way! Today you can find highly absorbent, easy-to-fit cloth diapers that are used exactly like disposables - only you throw them in the wash instead of the garbage. Plus, it's not an all-or-nothing decision. You can use hybrid options (which are biodegradable but disposable), or supplement your cloth diapers with disposables.
Yet all of these advances have given cloth-using parents one problem: too many diapers to choose from! Luckily, we tested 17 of the most popular cloth diapers - from prefolds to all-in-ones - to find the best of the best. Did we forget one? Nominate your favorite here.
BEST AFFORDABILITY | Econobum
If you want to give your baby a healthier diaper yet lack the funds to invest in cloth, prefolds are the way to go. And Econobum is the easiest, cheapest way to do this.
The unique feature of Econobum is that their prefold diapers (which include a waterproof shell and fabric that you fold into an insert) are a one-size system. So you only have to buy one set of covers and prefolds to last through the entire diapering era.
Plus, the prefolds are super easy to fold. And while prefolds are definitely bulkier and require more practice on getting the right fit, you’ll save buckets of money in the long run.
