Cloth diapers have come a long way in a short amount of time. Pins are now a thing of the past. Today’s cloth diapers Velcro or snap together, are eco-friendly and easy to use. There are cloth diapers for every type of budget. You can cloth diaper for as little as $150 or as much as $550+. Most diapers last from birth until potty training (5-35lbs) so there is no need to use anything but cloth. If you plan on having multiple kids you can get additional use out of your diapers. How Many Cloth Diapers do I need? We recommend you purchase anywhere from 24-36 cloth diapers. A newborn will use 12+ cloth diapers a day. To do laundry every other day we recommend at least 24 cloth diapers. The more diapers you have doesn’t mean you can wash them less often. The longer soiled diapers sit the greater the potential to ruin your diapers. We recommend you wash every third day at a minimum. What brands or styles are best for cloth diapering?
