Why I quit using Cloth Diapers

Updated: 2 days ago

Edit 2022: For our second child we will start cloth diapering again!

I don’t like to admit it and I feel a bit ashamed about it because I feel so strongly towards it but I feel I have to be honest with you all. I have stopped using cloth diapers. I really don’t like that I no longer use them. As you can see here, there are so many posts here about why I love cloth diapering but as of now I am no longer using them and I have several reasons why.

Worn out diapers

My baby girl is 3,5 years old at the moment (and still not potty trained…) and we have been using cloth diapers since she was about 12 weeks old. So after over 3 years of using this set of cloth diapers, they have started to wear out. The fabric is significantly thinning (and even see-through in some places) and being less and less absorbent resulting in more leaking, more diaper changes, and even more laundry. I have hopes that she will start to use the toilet soon so I don’t want to invest in another set of diapers.
