Cloth Diaper Myth Number Two

Posted in Bumkins, Cloth Diapering on July 27th, 2009 by johanna – Comments Off

Cloth diapering is more expensive (after factoring the cost of detergent, water and electricity)

“Cloth diapers are less expensive than disposables, especially if you do the laundering yourself.”
-Consumer Reports.org
Cloth diapering is not more expensive than using disposables; in fact it cost less over the full 2 to 3 year period of diapering. This fact rings especially true when you factor in their reusability for multiple children within a family. The start-up cost of purchasing cloth diapers is expensive, but once this initial hurdle is overcome their use over an extended time period is a very frugal move and parents will find that the added cost associated with laundering, such as increased detergent, water and electricity use is nominal. But if the initial cost of cloth diapering proves to be challenging for parents, we recommend incrementally adding a few cloth diapers to your disposable diapering routine until you have accumulated enough to go fully cloth. Even using a few cloth diapers is beneficial to your baby, the environment and your wallet.  Also, when calculating the cost of disposable diapers most people often forget added cost factors such as gasoline and trash bags.
