How Much Will I Save If I Buy Cloth Diapers vs. Disposables?

With 6000 – 8000 diaper changes from birth to potty training, disposable diapers can cost anywhere between $2000 – $3000.
The cost savings of cloth diapers depend on how long your baby is in diapers, what diapering system you are using, and how many children you will use the diapers for. If you use your diapering products for more than one child, your savings multiply!

To cloth diaper, you will need:
Diapers:
 Newborn: 20-24 diapers / 
6-12 months: 14-18 diapers
 /12-24 months: 12-16 diapers
 /Potty Learning: 4-8 diapers
Covers: 
Newborn-9 months: 1 wrap for every 3 diapers / 
9 months-18 months: 1 wrap for every 4 diapers / 
18 months to potty training: 1 wrap for every 5 diapers

Diaper changing station…
Shake solids into toilet after each diaper change. Store your soiled Thirsties® Cloth Diapers in a DRY diaper pail. A standard 52-quart garbage pail with a lid works great and can be purchased at your local department store. Be sure to line your pail with a Thirsties® Deluxe Diaper Pail Liner to avoid having to clean your pail on every laundry day. Simply dump the diapers into the washer and throw in the pail liner for every cloth diaper load. If you have a second liner on hand, place into the … Read More
