The Real Cost of Cloth

Cloth diapers are better for the environment, easier on the skin, and can save your family some dough - but just how much?

Do you like math? I don't really - but let's dive right into it anyway!

In order to calculate we will need to make a few assumptions. Assuming that your child:

Potty trains at age 3

0-6mos using avg 10 diapers per day

6-18 mos using avg 8 diapers per day

18mos-3yrs using avg 6 diapers per day

*At 18mos we will assume that they are sleeping through the night and using less (let's all pause and have a good laugh at that statement)

Let's Calculate

0-6mos using avg 10 diapers per day means 182.5 days x 10 diapers = 1,825

6-18 mos using avg 8 diapers per day means 365 days x 8 diapers = 2,920

18mos-3yrs using avg 6 diapers per day means 547.5 days x 6 diapers = 3,285

TOTAL DIAPERS IN 3 YEARS = 8,030
