Often we hear from customers advising the initial start up cost for cloth diapers can be quite daunting - after all, there are many other “big ticket” baby items one usually needs such as car seats, baby carriers/slings, strollers, bassinet/crib.
Quite surprisingly, cloth diapering on a budget is definitely doable. First, you’ll need to determine what your cloth diaper preference is; do you want to use all-in-one’s, pocket diapers, fitted diapers, or good ol’ prefolds and diaper covers?
Prefolds and covers are one of the most economical cloth diaper options available to parents. You can easily cloth diaper your little one for $100-$150 using prefolds and covers. bumGenius is launching a new diaper product called Econobum - delivering a cost effective cloth diaper option with the simplicity of prefolds coupled with the well loved fit and design of the bumGenius One Size 3.0 pocket diaper. Be sure to check out all the options - and remember, with cloth diapers it’s okay to use a little of this and a little of that!
Not fond of prefolds and covers? Prefer the convenience of all-in-one’s s, pocket diapers, or fitted diapers? While these diapers are generally more expensive options - all hope is not lost!
Consider setting up a gift registry for the items you need/want. This allows your family and friends to help share the initial cost and allow you to reap greater savings from your decision to cloth diaper!
Make purchases little by little. If your budget doesn’t afford you the ability to make one big purchase - set yourself an allowance and make small monthly purchases until you have all the diapers and accessories you need.
