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)
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
