The thought of using cloth diapers can elicit a strong reaction at first. They can seem overwhelming, time consuming and probably gross. But with a little more insight into why they are becoming increasingly popular, you may find that cloth diapering is something you’ll want to explore. The cotton cloth is more comfortable and helps skin breathe naturally with fewer diaper rashes. The reuse is obviously more environmentally conscious and the relief on the wallet is nice as well. Intrigued? Here are a few of the top spots in Minnesota to try out cloth diapers.
