Cloth diapering IS expensive, but so is eating, living, and having a baby; in the grand scheme of things, with proper research, budgeting, and sale shopping, cloth diapering can be the cheapest portion of child rearing! Other than breastfeeding, since hooking your baby up to a boob is free.com.

It is much cheaper to start cloth diapering as opposed to switching later on if and when you decide that disposable diapers are not working out. Either way, do what best aligns with your belief system and wallet!

I had several reasons for switch my daughter to cloth diapers and a couple are as follows: I originally wanted to cloth diaper anyway, but didn’t have the support, my daughter had chronic diaper rashes treated only with continuous usage of a prescription due to the usage of disposables, and I want to fully cloth diaper our next baby whenever it makes it debut, so I figured I might as well start my research now! Haha.

You can spend as little as 300-500 to get a good working stockpile for a child and while that is a lot, that’s ALL you will spend on diapers through potty training. Compared for buying a million boxes of disposable diapers like I did until recently! Also, some of these training pants are thin enough to be used as undies, so that’s my plan too until she outgrows them.

Here’s a brief summary in bullet point form of all that I’ve learned on this transition to cloth diapering:

  1. I would say that travel is much more difficult with boys or heavy wetters. Compression leaks are hard to combat in a car seat. We could only use fitteds and covers, GroVia hybrid covers, or gDiapers.

    1. Oh darn, you reminded me that I didn’t include the hybrid diapers. We usually use Grovia AIOs for travel. I’m sure we could make our entire Knoxville to Memphis trip in one of them if we HAD to, but we always change her in Nashville of course.
