Real Diaper Week- Day 3

Here's yesterday's post this morning. I'll try to do today's post this afternoon.

Today we're discussing the cost of cloth diapering. Cloth diapering has saved us a TON of money. Now, we are a "hybrid" family. This means that we use disposables sometime. Levi is just over 5 months old, and to date, we've spent about $30 on disposable diapers. That's what most people spend in a week. We use disposables sometimes at daycare, and sometimes at night. A friend gave us all of her prefold diapers and a few covers. This was easily worth $60, if it would have been new. Buying used, and getting things from friends is the easiest way to spend less, but get more! I have purchased some cloth on my own, about $60 worth, this equated to 20 new diapers. I now have more than enough for Levi and will be able to use most of it with baby number 2, if we ever get to that point. Cloth diapering can save you thousands of dollars over the first two years of your kids life. I'll take an extra load of laundry every few days for that!
