Welcome to 2009, where the disposable diaper is hip and easy to use, plus it can save you tons of money and not contribute all of that plastic to Earth's ever-growing landfills.
MY PICK: Based on research done first my lovely long-distance, do-it-yourself friend, Sara, I began looking at the BumGenius Cloth Diapers
SAVE MONEY: Check out the data I found on TenderCargo.com:
- A typical newborn uses 8 diapers a day, or 240 a month.
- A pack of Huggies or Pampers is $10 for 40 diapers, that adds up to $60 every month.
- If the child wears disposable diapers until they are two and a half, that cost is an alarming $1,800.
Ok, so 8 diapers a day... I must want at least 12 cloth diapers to be safe, even though the website suggests more.
