Welcome to Real Diaper week, Day 3.
During Real Diaper Week I will be joining others to help raise awareness about cloth diapering and the Great Cloth Diaper Change of 2012. Stay tuned for the Cloth Diapering Giveaway and a week of education, personal cloth diapering posts by Eco-friendly, cloth diapering MOMS.
Vikki from Sonrise Diaper Service has been a helping hand for me personally when it comes to cloth Diapering. She is my “go” to person when I have questions and need answers fast. Don’t forget to check out Sonrise Diaper Service and read the Sonrise Story.
Graciously, Janelle has asked me to write a guest post for her this week to celebrate Real Diaper Week…ahem…that’s CLOTH diapers people!
So I will be talking about the $avings you can expect when changing to cloth diapers from throw-away, or as the world knows them – disposables.
When you have a baby there are (what seems like) MILLIONS of decisions you have to make – where are you delivering, who is your pediatrician, what color is the nursery going to be and so on – and everyone expects you to make them ASAP! Well…diapering is not one of those choices you must make quickly or even make before the baby is born. You will have to have a few different styles on hand to try, and once tried, decide what you’d like to use and what your baby’s caretaker would like to use also (if they will be taking care of your baby for a significant amount of time you should really try to accommodate them also.)
As you can see the numbers speak for themselves. You WILL $ave money by using cloth diapers, how much you save is up to you. Some factors that will affect how much you can save is the type of diapers you use, if you are using a diaper service or not and if you use any disposables or not.
Also, one big thing not to forget is that you can USE THESE DIAPERS ON YOUR NEXT BABY TOO!!!! That’s where the HUGE savings come in.
So whether you choose to use cloth or not is up to you, but be informed about your decision and how its affecting your baby’s health and the health of their planet.
