There are some parents who swear by cloth diapers. Yes, they are better for the environment and they cost less in the long run, but how effective are they at preventing diaper rash? First of all, Alva cloth diapers are incredibly cost-effective and are super adjustable. You can adjust both the waist size and the length of the diaper. This, essentially, means that you could use the same diapers from birth until the always fun potty training experience is complete. That is, if you take care of them properly. I suggest investing in a waterproof diaper bag that you can throw your soiled cloth diapers in after wearing out. That way you can clean out the bag with a faucet or water hose!
