Reusable cloth diapers and nappies are an increasingly popular choice for parents who are looking for an eco-friendly and budget-friendly option for their baby's diapering needs. Here at Mothercare Malaysia, we’re here to help you find parenting solutions that are kind to your baby as well as kind to the earth. That’s why we offer a wide range of cloth diapers that are both comfortable for your baby and easy to use for those groggy late-night changes.

Benefits of using Reusable Cloth Diapers

There are many key benefits to cloth diapers which have made them popular with parents in Malaysia:

  • Environmentally-friendly: Cloth diapers and nappies are reusable and help reduce the amount of waste in landfills, making them a more eco-friendly option compared to disposable diapers.
  • Cost-effective: Cloth diapers can save you money in the long run as they can be reused multiple times. Depending on the specific brand you purchase, you might even be able to use your cloth diaper several hundred times over a couple of years before needing to replace it. This greatly reduces the need to constantly buy expensive disposable diapers.
  • Comfortable: Cloth diapers are made of soft and breathable materials, providing your baby with extra comfort and reducing the chances of diaper rash.

Tips for Using Cloth Diapers

These safe diapering practices are key to helping your baby remain clean and comfortable when wearing cloth diapers:

  • Change diapers frequently every two to three hours or when soiled or wet.
  • Wash all cloth diapers with a mild baby-safe detergent and dry them properly before reusing again. This helps prevent bacterial growth and staining, as well as maintains their absorbency.
  • Use a diaper liner to prevent diaper cream or ointment from building up on the diaper, which can affect its absorbency in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions About Cloth Diapers

Do you have to change a cloth diaper after every pee?

Yes. It is recommended to change cloth diapers every two to three hours or as soon as they get wet or soiled. This helps to prevent diaper rash from moisture and waste buildup, which can lead to bacterial infections. The duration may vary across individual babies as well, depending on how your little one’s skin reacts to the diaper. You can further reduce the risk of irritation or infection by using baby toiletries and baby laundry detergent made with a gentle formulation.

What are some disadvantages of cloth diapers?

Though there are many benefits to using reusable cloth diapers over disposable nappies, there are also several disadvantages to consider as well. This includes high upfront costs when initially purchasing the diapers and the extra time and effort needed to wash and dry them. Babysitters, daycare centres, and other caretakers (such as grandparents or relatives) may also be unfamiliar with using cloth diapers and require specific instructions.

Can you leave a cloth diaper on all night?

It is certainly possible to use cloth diapers throughout the night, although it is still recommended to regularly change your baby’s cloth diaper every couple of hours to avoid the risk of rashes. A well-fitting cloth diaper should not leak until it’s fully saturated, although you can opt to use an insert or booster for added protection and peace of mind.
