Way back in episode 5 of First Time Mum’s Chat I put together an episode called “Which Nappies are best for your baby” where amongst other things, I discussed the benefits of cloth diapers versus disposables. I regularly receive enquiries from moms wanting to know more about the benefits of cloth diapers vs disposables. I’ve been on the hunt for someone to chat with on First Time Mum’s Chat and I was delighted to recently connect with April Duffy, who runs a very busy community on Facebook which is entirely dedicated to cloth diapers.

This buzzing community has in excess of 50,000 members and what better place to start immersing yourself in the world of cloth diapers!

During our chat you’ll hear April share loads of tips and insights including:-

  • Details on the different types of cloth diapers available.
  • The huge cost savings you can make by using cloth diapers over disposables.
  • The different materials that cloth diapers are manufactured from and the advantages.
  • How using cloth diapers often speeds up your little one’s potty training.

And much more…
