Washable pocket diapers are a type of baby diaper that can be washed and reused over and over again, multiple times, from months to years. They are often made from cotton, wool, bamboo fiber, or unbleached helm with an absorbent inner layer to enable it to absorb moisture quite easily and fast.
Most of the designs are breathable and size adjustable to fit the baby’s size, provide comfort, and be friendly to the little one’s skin.
Once you find a good quality, its durability is long; hence it can save you a lot of money that would otherwise be spent on single-use disposable diapers until the baby doesn’t need diaper use anymore. A single disposable diaper ranges from 15 – 50 sh depending on quality, and a baby uses at least 3- 4 in a day, which translates to 60 Ksh on average, a day or 1800 a month, and 21,600 Ksh a year.
A good quality pocket diaper will cost an average of 650 Ksh when you buy ten pieces once, that will be 6500 Ksh, and you can use them for up to 2 years plus its free size to fit all.
While its initial cost may look high, it actually saves you about 36000 in 2 years that you would otherwise been used on disposable diapers in the long run. The saved cash can be channeled to other uses or invested for the baby’s future
