So much cheaper! Even with the cost of washing, I'm saving a bundle. I spent $300 on my stash, and I'm set for the entire time he is in diapers, AND I can use it on my next child. Disposables would have cost me an estimated $2,0000+ (The average family spends $2,694.54 for 7,349 disposable, single-use diapers.)
I'm keeping chemicals off of my baby's bum, and I'm not filling up a landfill with more waste that is going to take hundreds of years to decompose.
To be honest, he's still gotten rashes.. but he's also gotten worse rashes while in sposies.
It's also sooooo much easier than you'd think. I'm the most squeamish person ever. The littlest things will make me gag, or feel sick to my stomach. I've have zero problems cloth diapering. I actually hate when he pees/poos in a sposie, because I think it smells so much worse than in a cloth diaper. I think it's the pee and stuff mixing with the chemicals that makes it smell so darn gross. When he's in cloth, I've had times where I couldn't tell if he'd pood or not until I've gone to change him. Washing is so easy.
