Cloth Diaper Update

It has been brought to my attention that I haven't given an update on The Cloth Diaper Experiment. So here it is. It has been three months since our family has discovered cloth diapers, something I thought was a thing of the past!


After hours of research on the internet I decided to order some diaper covers from Kawaii Baby. They had good reviews and they were the best value by far! They even had free shipping on orders over $70. If you're thinking "Geez, $70 sure is a lot to spend on cloth diapers," well, that's actually less than what we spend on two weeks worth of disposable diapers.

Jeremy and I were buying two big boxes a week of disposable diapers that cost approximately $20 a piece. That's $160 a month on diapers. Yuck. So the initial investment might seem expensive on cloth diapers but they paid for themselves in no time at all. Over time we will save hundreds of dollars!

We still occasionally use disposable diapers when we aren't home (church, grandparents house,etc) We would never expect anyone else to have to deal with cloth diapers.

We are so happy that we made the switch from disposables to cloth diapers. I'll admit that at first I was worried that it was going to be way more work than it was worth but it really hasn't been that big of a change. The biggest pain has been asking, "Honey, can you pick up a pack of disposable diapers for the church nursery tomorrow?" Seriously!

  2. Cloth diapers are great! It's just a matter of taking that first leap and making the investment. Well worth it!
