I am a pretty frugal person so when I got pregnant I tried to think of ways to save money. One of those ways I found was cloth diapering. One thing I found to be very aggravating was everyone telling me I was crazy for wanting to use them and how disgusting it would be to change and wash poopy cloth diapers. Well I'm here to say, It's really not that bad. If anyone out there is on the fence about it get a few and try it because it's not bad at all. The only thing I have found is my son pees alot at night and it doesn't matter what I do he soaks through the cloth ones every time. So to save me from having to change his clothes, sheets, and blankets at 3 in the morning I use disposables during the night.
To give you an idea of how much money we save we used disposables during our christmas trip to ohio for 2 weeks. During those 2 weeks we probably went through at least 3+ bags of disposables. That's roughly 150 diapers. We buy target brand which is about $7 for 42 diapers so that's 4 bags for a total of about $30. If we were using them all the time it would be about $60 a month give or take depending.
When we use cloth at home and only use the disposables for night time and going out places, we probably go through about 3 diapers a night and if we are out maybe 1-2 (during the week we don't usually go anywhere so this is mainly just on the weekend). That's about a bag of diapers every 2-3 weeks. We save about 50% or more on disposable diapers. Knowing those numbers is enough for me to deal with the occasional blow out and cleaning the poops in cloth diapers. Its worth it!
