SMART IDEAS by our customers

"...I'm about to diaper two kids, so I moved my diaper station onto the folding table in my laundry room. Don't know why I didn't think of this before; now I just grab a cover hang drying from my handy IKEA laundry claw- with only one baby I used to fold them all up nice and neat. Not so anymore!

Ready to go with cloth diapers? Here is how many of each item you will need:

  • 18-36 diapers (the more the merrier and longer they will last!)
  • Diaper Pail (I bought a standard kitchen garbage can with lid from Target)
  • 2 Diaper Pail liners to be used in laundry rotation
  • 2 to 3 dozen cloth diaper wipes

(compare that to $2200+ for disposable diapers and $500+ for wipes for 30 months and beyond)

That's a lot of money up front. We suggest that as soon as you know that you are pregnant and going to use cloth diapers, you begin to save $60/mo for the entire pregnancy. Then you have your diapers for the next three years!
