CafeMom Team will be posting Baby Encyclopedia questions in the Babies Category from Tuesday till Friday of this week. For every question you answer, you'll be entered to win one of the $25 Gap Gift Cards that we're giving away each day!
But there's a catch... only "real" answers will be entered to win the $25 Gap Gift Card. If you do not have tested advice or an informed opinion on the topic, please wait to answer the next question. There will be plenty of opportunities to enter the contest.
We are using these questions to create a mom-tested resource for new and expecting parents, so try to use proper grammar, punctuation, and spelling when writing your answers.
Read Official Rules.

Cloth diapers are better for the environment and some moms report less irritation from diaper rash. This is usually related to the fact that cloth diapers are changed more frequently than disposable.
Disposable diapers have been known to hold fragrances that irritate sensitive skin. However, many moms like the convenience of the remove and throw method rather than washing out and reusing.
