But, I have heard “They are expensive to buy!” It’s true, they are on the expensive side but imagine how many times you will use them. With one child, you use and reuse HUNDREDS maybe THOUSANDS of times. The start up cost is more pricey with cloth, but you save so much more in the end.
If you save them for more children, you double the life of that diaper (and they are so well made that yes they do last that long). I recently passed my prefolds onto my sister, who will use them on her new baby and give them back to me when child #2 comes along (don’t get any ideas).
To save money on cloth diapers, you should try buying used! Diaper swappers is a great place to start. You can trade, buy, and talk to other parents out there using cloth or living the Attachment Parenting lifestyle. Just think, when you are done with the diapers then you can resell them on that site too!
