Cloth Diapering is coming back.

Although, approximately 80% of American families use disposable diapers today many mothers are choosing to use cloth diapers. I started CDing (cloth diapering) when my son was about two and a half months and he is now almost one and a half.

Isn’t he cute?

The #1 reason I chose to cloth diaper was MONEY.

- To diaper one child in disposables for 2.5-3 years it would cost 1500-3000. This includes wipes, diaper rash creams and Pull-ups.

- Cloth diapering will cost you anywhere between 400-1200 depending on which diapers you chose and how many diapers you buy. This includes detergent, utilities, diaper pail, and all other accessories. When you use these diapers on subsequent children your savings multiply.

I am expecting our second, a little girl, in August and will have two in diapers. So I will to have buy a few more diapers. But fortunately if ever didn’t need my diapers and wanted to sell them, cloth diapers have a 50-80% resale value. Cha-ching!

So in celebration of Earth Day on Friday, Heidi let me share a little on a greener way to diaper that will leave a little more green in your wallet.
