Cost Savings - Cloth vs Disposable
The cost of diapers varies from home to home. There are a few factors involved, e.g. the age of Baby (from newborn to potty) and frequency of diaper change. Newborns, compared to toddlers, go through more diapers daily. Here we use a simple calculation of an average of 7 disposable diapers used per day for the 1st 2 years of a child.
Even if we add the costs of a diaper pail, washing detergent plus water and electrical bills, you’ll still enjoy massive savings, which can be used to buy other necessities for your child, like milk powder, or put aside as savings for future school fees. What’s more, cloth diapers, when cared for properly, can be passed down to your next child, which means even more savings!
