Disposable vs. Cloth breakdown
I thought that you would enjoy seeing the breakdown of the cost of cloth diapers vs different disposable brands. And actually her estimate of $800 is much higher than what you would spend if you were using covers and prefolds. If you were using the econobum kit for $48.95 you get 3 covers, 12 prefolds, and 1 laundry bag. When I began cloth diapering full time I had 3 covers and 8 prefolds and got by fine. So all you would need is a diaper sprayer which I made for about $20 with this tutorial. And finally 1 bag of detergent that lasted me about 4 months per bag at Rockin Green for $14.95. And then you are set! So you really could cloth diaper with a very small investment of $83.90! Then you would be on your way to saving cash by using cloth, my whole goal for you!
