We use about 2 disposable diapers a day, so with 80 per box or so, we're only spending around $15 every 5-6 weeks. I'm fine with that. My cloth diapers, on the other hand, are in excellent shape! They're seriously like new, aside from the fact that they're not perfectly white. They're really not that bad.
I really thought they'd be horribly stained after 7 months of use, but if one looks a little dingy, I just hang it in the sun on a bright day and the stain fades.
Another perk to using cloth diapers is that they are so gentle on the skin. Asher gets a rash every time he wears disposable diapers for any length of time.
So far, I would venture to guess that we've saved around $50 a month. We used to spend $60 a month on diapers and now we spend around $10. ($15 for a box that last about 6 weeks) $50 savings a month for the 7 months we've been using cloth diapers is $350, we've broken even! Now, Asher will be in diapers for another year and we can use these for the next little one as well! I think it's totally worth it.
What do you think about cloth diapering?? It's not scary I promise!
