Washing them is simple and easy, but it’s not quick. You can generally toss wet cloth nappies directly in the laundry pile, but if it’s soiled, you need to spray or scoop off the poop first before soaking and washing.
Moms who use disposable diapers know the drill: they just throw them properly in the can once soaked or soiled. Hence it’s more convenient.
The discussion in lampin vs. disposable diapers availability is quite tricky.
Both are now readily available online and in grocery stores and malls; however, we can still say that disposable nappies are more accessible because small stores (sari-sari stores) often have them, too.
Prevention of Rashes
Experts say diaper rashes occur due to skin irritation, often because the skin experiences prolonged contact with a soiled diaper or the diaper material itself.
However, please note that there are measures to prevent rashes while using disposable nappies. Ideally, you need to change their diaper every 3 hours or so and after every poop.
Because you need to change lampin once they are soaked or soiled, it might significantly reduce the risk of diaper rash. Still, please remember that babies using cloth nappies can develop rashes, especially if you don’t change them right away.
Better Night-time Sleep
Between cloth diapers and disposable diapers, which better promotes quality sleep?
In one study1, investigators found that infants who wore disposable nappies with a high-absorbency rate experienced less overall sleep disruption than infants who used cloth diapers.
Cloth diapers are naturally less absorbent, and for this reason, they require frequent changes even during bedtime.
