Let’s go over some of the benefits of cloth diapering. 1. You can save money using cloth diapers Some people will argue that, considering the upfront cost of the diapers and the cost of laundering them, you aren’t saving money in the long run. With cloth diapers you get an item that can be cleaned and reused so in the long run you save money by using them. Disposable diapers are quite expensive when you consider that the baby will need to be changed on average every two hours when they are newborns. Cloth Diapers cause Less Irritation.

Cloth diapers afforded parents like Campbell more control over the money they spent each month, rather than paying whatever the grocery store decided disposables were worth each week or cutting. Cloth Diapers (Charlie) – $890. Note: The cost to raise future children with cloth diapers would actually go down to around $740! Imagine if you were just now starting your family, and you were deciding between cloth and disposables. You could be looking at a 48% savings to potty train three kids.

3 kids in disposables, would be $4917. The going rate seems to be around 50% for all cloth systems in good condition, and 70% for newborn diapers. So let’s assume you can sell your cloth stash for 50%, ’cause you can. Bottom Line: Reselling your $450 cloth diaper stash at 50% brings $225 back into your pocket ($450 x. Splurging on pricier diapers might be painful at first, but if you plan on cloth diapering through two or more kids, it could be worth the upfront cost.

Whether you stick to budget brands or splurge on more expensive ones, cloth diapering your kid can save you big in the long term (not to mention saving a bunch of disposable diapers from. Between the long-term savings and the fact that they’re better for the environment, I agree with the many moms who swear that cloth diapering is the way to go. Cloth Diapers Our Journey In Using Cloth diapers. My son has not been using diapers for four months now (Yeheey!), so I guess it is safe to say that he is already potty-trained at two years and three months. I have wanted to write about cloth diapers for a while now but decided to do it after my son is potty trained to share more about the.

In short, buying new cloth diapers for a single child isn’t financially worth it, but if you have the ability to get used cloth diapers on the cheap and/or you plan on having multiple children, cloth diapers can easily recoup your investment and save money. Yes, you can get some great deals when buying used cloth diapers but if a deal sounds too good to be true then be careful! If a seller claims that they will sell you ten name brand cloth diapers that are still new in the package for $75, you might want to demand some proof of the condition of the diapers.

After the birth of my second child, I decided to try cloth diapers, which I found to be just as easy to use and way more economical than disposables.

Even if you do use cloth diapers, you probably will want to keep a small supply of disposables on hand for trips and outings.

These desirable features also add up to a distinct disadvantage: since disposables soak up so much urine and often ‘feel’ dry when they’re far from it, parents are less likely to change nappies frequently enough, and infrequent changes can lead to nappy rash.

Even if you’re planning to use cloth diapers, disposables are great for traveling long distances or going on vacation (unless you plan to do laundry in a hotel washroom).

  • I think the other factor people need to think about is how big or small do they expect their baby to be. In my case my kids are around 5 to 6lbs so, one-size will not fit till almost 6 months. If you can use them that long even for 1 baby the cost can be worth it. Multiple smaller sizes of prefolds and nb covers can work in that case too but flats are way to big.

  • Props to you MOM! I have always wanted to use cloth diapers…but I just don’t have the drive or Just being lazy I guess ������

    Omg! And that toilet sprayer is GENIUS!!!

  • You don’t strip pockets! And you don’t HAVE to pull the liner out before you put it in the wash. If your baby is breast fed then the poop is water soluble but if you formula feed you still need to spray the poop! I’ve been cloth diapering my daughter for a year and this video made me cringe

  • Wow this is the worst explanation of cloth nappies (sorry I’m british) I’ve seen!! There are so so many better resources out there with actual information rather than this… even the names they’re calling things isnt right and “theres hundreds of different brands but they’re all the same really”?!?!?! Not even remotely true.
    I cloth nappy and I love it but if I had watched this video it would not have convinced me. Cloth bums are amazing and if you’re considering it please spend some more time researching it from better sources than this.

  • Cloth diapers are unfortunately not explained well in this video, at all. It is not to mom bash or shame, but to make sure the correct information is out there for the moms looking into cloth diapering.

    If you need any help with either deciding what to choose (cloth or disposable) and would like further information send me a message on here! I dont bite and would love to help another momma, or momma to be, out with cloth!

    I was thrown into this world because of my daughters super sentive skin that reacted to ALL disposables. So I made it my mission to seek out all the information possible when it came to cloth diapering. I didn’t want to fail at it.. and she became my motivation. There are lots of things that I have learned within the last 11 months of this amazing journey that I would love to share!

  • I work 70-80 hours per week, I don’t have time for cloth diapers, I do try to be sustainable in other aspects like glass bottles, biodegradable pacifiers, plastic free wipes, convertible crib, ethical and sustainable baby clothes, second hand baby things, bamboo toothbrushes for baby, and shampoo, conditioner and baby wash in either bar form or in glass packaging

  • I wished that i had used cloth diapers for both of my babies so so bad, it is so good for the earth and also for the babies skin and of course you save tons of money on diapers!

  • Have you tried using the disposable liners for poop? So you don’t have to spray the diapers in the toilet every time it’s a poopy diaper? Just curious cause I’m going to cloth diaper with my first born who is born in July!

  • I feel like this was a lot of information I thought was true when I first started cloth diapering. Now that between my two kids I feel like it’s easier than this video made it seem. I also feel like it missed a lot of important points. Maybe having a couple cloth diapering mom’s on who use different kinds of cloth diapers, and different levels of experience

  • I sat down with my boyfriend and him and I talked about AIO and covers and pockets for newborns. We felt covers were best for us personally because we could use flats “flower sack towels” and it would go from birth to potty. And I found a 12 pack of newborn prefolds on Amazon for 18$ And we couldn’t do that with AIO and they were much much more costly. We have 12 covers they were Amazon cheap 6$ USD each.
    72$ for newborn covers
    18$ prefolds
    24$ flower sack towels
    7.88 10 pack at Wal-Mart
    114$ USD for my newborn stash
    42$ of that can be used untill potty training. And I could get money back from my covers.
