Is it really less expensive to cloth diaper?

Is it really less expensive to cloth diaper?

Some people are put off by the seemingly expensive price of cloth diapers.They range from $6.00 to $30.00 PER diaper. Disposable diapers range from (aprox)..17 - .25(cents) PER diaper. A baby will need about 6,000 diapers in the first two years of his life with an average of 8 changes per day over a 2 year time period. With these calculations let’s assume a baby will need 60 diapers a week.

60x.25 = $15.00 a week= $60.00 a month=$720.00 a year to diaper an average child.That is a total of $1,440.00 to diaper a child with disposable diapers IF the child is out of diapers by two years old.If he does not potty train until three it would be $2,160.00.

You can cloth diaper a baby for much,much less than this…It depends on what kind of diapers you use and how many you want in your “stash” but even if you go with the most expensive choice you are still paying MUCH less than you would be with disposables.Cloth can also be used for more than one child!If you don’t have a need for that, then when your baby grows out of a size you can bring them to us and receive credit toward the next size.The amount of credit you receive depends on the condition of the diaper but a 50% trade in value is typical. The used diapers will then be sold to another Mamma at the “used” price.We make no profit on the trade ins.We resell them for the same price that we gave for them. We do this to help make our cloth diapers as affordable as we can…..
