Anyway stay up the nice qquality writing, it’s rsre
to see a nice weblog like this one these days..
Most sites estimate I’ll save thousands! But I’m doing it because I cant in good conscience contribute that many disposable diapers to our landfils
Hundreds …..except my cd Addiction keeps me buying more, and more, and more…
I’m not sure how much we’ll save exactly, since our little bean isn’t due for a couple more months, but I know we’ll save a tremendous amount. We expect to have a rather large family, so all that savings will pile on up!!
I am shocked at how much disposables have gone up since the birth of my first 5 years ago. We can’t afford it! At least $60/month for diapers. If my new little one potty trains at 2 (and there are never guarantees!), we would have spend $1440-2160 on diapers. If we spend $400 on cloth, we will save $1040-$1760 on diapers, give or take a hundred.
i dont know since we never did disposables but 3 years and 2 kids into cloth diapers … probably a grand or more?!
I have spent a very small amount on diapers as most of my diapers are handed down or won (i have bought FST a few covers and three Actual pocket type diapers) So I have saved on my second baby $6k at least as he was cloth diapered since day one in hospital. I have only purchased one small package of disposable diapers when he was ill with a stomach flu
I believe I’ve saved at least a thousand dollars cloth diapering. For about 2 years I had two in diapers and it was so helpful!
I’d probably save around $25/month, which adds up quickly!
I believe I will save $1,600 this year
I estimate I will have saved about $800 on diapers!
I’ve probably saved close to $2000
I believe I will save At least $2,000 once we finally are able to switch over to CD.
We’ve already saved one month’s spend, and we’ve only been using them for three months. Two month’s nappy costs bought me enough to never have to buy any ever again – it’s all saving from here on in…well, until I see the next cute print…
We have been CDing for almost 8 months so alot lol
I have cloth diapered 2 and have saved around $2000. I could have saved a lot but I bought a lot of brands at the beginning to see what I liked.
So much money! We’ve been cloth diapering for almost 20 months.
I’m not exactly sure altogether. We’ve had a 2 year break because of living with family, but since moving 5 months ago, I’d put our savings at $200 so far.
I can’t say an exact number but I’d say if I quiet buying new cloth diapers (since we have enough) we could still save roughly 1,000 for our one child alone. We plan to use this same diaper stash on our second, so that’s HUGE savings!
Who are we kidding? I would only save money if I stopped buying cute diapers. No chance!
I used disposable a with my son because of daycare. Now I stay at home with my daughter. Using numbers from my son I should save about 700-800.
I hope to save hundreds!
With two babies in diapers, it’s about $85 a month!
over 4,000 with three kids
We will save a couple thousand dollars!
not sure the exact amount we have saved by im guessing its a good pocketfull 🙂
Cloth diapering for our household isn’t just about the $$ we’re saving, it’s about what we’re saving the ENVIRONMENT from 🙂 We’re trying to maintain a happy Earth for our children to enjoy!
I did the math, and cloth diapering saves at least $1000, not to mention how much it saves in environmental costs.
Our little one isn’t here yet but I think we will end up saving thousands over the course of our cloth diapering adventures!
My baby is not here yet, I am guessing using cloth will save us at least $400 in the first year. At least I am hoping it will!
I think I have saved quiet a bit of money cloth diapering.
I would love to have a great night time solution!
My baby is 4 months and I think up to now I have saved about $300
I think we’ll save around a $1000 or so by using cloth diapers but I’m not sure since this is our first baby!
I’d say within our budget so far we have easily saved over $800! It has slowly been filtered into our Disney fund to be put to some good use!!!
Not sure of exact amount, but probably quite a bit
We started cloth on day 1, and baby is 3 weeks old! I predict we will be saving thousands over the next couple years 🙂
No idea since my baby hasn’t been born yet, but my guess is we’ll be saving a lot of money! Not to mention it is also more sustainable for the environment!
I think i’ll save 1500 dollars
I figured sposies would be about 120 a month for us, times 12 months. … or the 300 I spent on all our diapers for 2 kids until they are potty trained!
No money saved, but a much happier heiny all the same 😉
Based on how much I spent during my recent break from cloth and using sposies, I have/will have saved at least $1500 over the course of diapering 4 kids!
I’m going to guess about $2000-$3000 so far? Based on numbers I found for cloth vs disposable. We’ve had 2 kids in cloth so far with our third on the way 🙂
I’ve been using cloth for about a month and already saved $50. I will save between $50-$75 per month!
I save at least $50 a month using cloth with my two kids.
I will easily save HUNDREDS, if not thousands, of dollars cloth diapering. I am fortunate enough to have a sister who cloth diapers and who has gifted me 20+ used (but excellent condition) cloth diapers. I’ve purchase some here or there to complete my stash.
My son’s stash has cost us between $300-400 over 27 months of use! Even if we bought disposables and wipes for $30/mo, we’ve saved at least 50% by using cloth! Potty training is not in site yet, so the savings just keep piling up. We are expecting another baby in August and are excited to continue saving by using and reusing cloth! 🙂
I haven’t started to cloth yet, but when my baby is born in September I’m expecting to save 1-2 thousand.
a ton ton ton hahaha….i really have no clue but i bet its a lot. my first kids cloth diapers paid for themselves in 7 months, and after that our only expense was detergent. baby #2 is almost 11 months old and we have not bought any disposables at all.
Building up my stash of cloth diapers, hoping to spend no more than $300. LO isn’t here yet, so I’m not sure which ones will be the best fit for her! I am also buying a few boxes of disposables for travel and going out. Hoping to save $1000-$1500 compared to using only disposables.
We’ve saved SO much money!! Our little one is 10 months old and we’ve only spent around $100 total on diapers (through baby showers and giveaways, we’ve been able to build up a wonderful stash!)
Haven’t done the math but I am sure over the course of cloth diapering we will save over $1500
I’m in love with cloth!!
I’m not sure how much we’ve saved so far. We just started cd almost full-time since January. We love them and are about to start cd at night too. 🙂
I have no idea, but a lot! and I’m saving them all for the future when I have another kid, hopefully! 🙂 I’ve been cloth diapering for 3 years, now! I got lucky and never spent more then $6 for a diaper (almost all are alva, though.)
I should easily save several thousand dollars depending on how many kids we have!
I’m not entirely sure how much I’ve saved with cloth diapers, but I know it’s a lot! Probably in the thousands! 🙂
I know that cloth diapering will save me thousands. I have only spent approximately $70 so far. I would have spent this much in a week if I was using sposies. Have only been cloth diapering for one month so far and really enjoy it.
We have spent right at $200 since we began cloth diapering and that includes the cloth wipes too. Since our son is 13 months, we have probably saved around $400-500 at least by now.
I have saved tons of money CDing. Most of my stash have come from giveaways, so I have spent very little money 🙂
Just about to start hoping to save quite a bit as long as I stay focused and don’t #buyallthediapers
I have no idea! A lot is my guess!
These would be a great option to get started with cloth.
I have saved hundreds!
I just started building my stash in April, and we are already pretty well covered from newborn to potty training (including 5 pairs training pants!) between new items I’ve purchased (largely on sale) and gently used items purchased and gifted down to us… We have a well-rounded stash of newborn prefolds, fitteds, AIO’s & covers, OS AIO’s, AI2’s, pockets, covers and sized fitteds/covers in both organic cotton and wool. I also have a variety of brands… though I know there are more I want to get to try! So far we have spent about $430…. And based on diaper-use estimates should have to wash every 2 days (a little more than every other!) So all in all, I feel pretty good about both our stash and our savings! I’m estimating we will have saved at least $1000… Though, I know, buying diapers is addicting, so now that the initial buying spree is over, I may have to occasionally cash in on a really good sale or a great print! 🙂
Awesome! So far we haven’t really saved much money because we are building up our stash. But I feel like we will save well over $1,000 throughout the diapering of my son.
I think we have saved quite a bit so far. I’ve only been cloth diapering for a couple of months on our 16 month old son and hope to start earlier with our daughter due any day now. We currently have only 3 covers, about a dozen prefolds and some flour sack towels and receiving blankets cut up but it is working for now. Kind of in panic mode to get more for baby girl but I am sure it will come in due time. 🙂
I’ve saved probably 400 dollars per kid. I could save more but I get seduced by upscale AIO and fitteds!
I have saved around 1900 using cloth diapers and cloth wipes on my son.
First cloth diapered baby is now 13 months and has used cloth from birth, so probably nearing $800-$1,000 saved, second baby due in December will use the same diapers, so after she’s done probably saved $3,000 or more easily.
We are saving about $40 each month!
I didn’t cloth diaper with my first child but I want to with my second. I hear it’s expensive to start but you save in the long run.
Probably over $2,000!
So far about $400
Once I sell my mega-stash, I’ll probably be about break-even considering the cost of coin-op laundry.
I save lots of money using these diapers and diaper covers! They are very good quality.
Ive spent more than i needed to but still saved a ton of money.
My first baby is only 6mo. I probably haven’t saved any money yet because I have a big stash of high-quality and domestic-made diapers. However, by time she potty learns I expect to have saved $2000. By time I’ve used the diapers on several children the savings will be multiplied.
We save SO MUCH money! Thousands without a doubt.
We only CD part time but in the few months we’ve been doing it, I think we’ve saved at least $200
Judging on how much we spent on our first son, we’ll be saving thousands with cloth diapers! We purchased most of our stash with gift cards we saved up so we’ve hardly dipped into our regular budget. Cloth diapers have already drastically reduced the cost of baby #2!
I think we save hundreds every month 🙂
I know that CD’ing a newborn has already saved me about $16 per week… Already balancing out the cloth diapers I’ve bought!
I’ve saved however much it costs to diaper two kids 🙂 $3000?
I’ve saved hundreds just switching in the last few months!
I have cloth diapered seven children (mostly full time CD), so I think I’ve saved thousands of dollars over time.
I have no idea but I’m sure a lot .
Its saved me at least $10 a week for the last 16 months and what would be $30 (NB diapers are more expensive) next month.
By resisting the temptation to buy all the cute colors and just stick with the twelve covers I have, I will have saved probably $1000-1500 by the time my first baby is potty trained!
I’m hoping at least a few hundred! 🙂
Well, we do use disposables at night, but we’re on our second kid with cloth diapering. $1500?
♡ cloth diapering!! Never used ecobum but will love to try one!
Considering that my daughter has sensitive skin so we had to buy the real top shelf brands of diapers, we probably save a ton but cloth diapers are highly addictive so I’m sure by now we have “invested” a chunk of that into our stash.
By usuing cloth diapers instead of disposable I will easily save over 5thousand dollars!!
I have saved around £700 so far 😀 and the best part is i can make some money back when i sell my stash.
i think i will save 500 or more
I’m pregnant with my second child and failed at cloth diapering with my first. I’m trying again with prefolds, instead of AIOs this time. I’m hoping I get it this time! Given the sheer amount of money I spent on diapers for 2 years, I’m hoping this will save me quite a bit of money this time around.
