Diapers - Cloth or Disposables

This has been weighing very heavily on my mind and heart lately. Actually the whole pregnancy! I was going to use cloth to begin with then decided, that with school that I would need to use disposables. Then after looking at prices of diapers, I decided we had to use cloth for money sake. Then I thought I would make them. HA! That is not as easy as it sounds. I have been sewing for a very short time now and only quilts so far. I didn't like the curves of the diaper tabs. But After I made two I decided it was not worth the time spent on making them. I could buy them on ebay new for nearly what I would pay to make them. Then I tried drying the one that I made. That took FOREVER in the dry and still wasn't dry. Then I went to Sam's. Did you know that you could go to Sam’s and get Huggies for $37 for 207 diapers? Well that totally threw a wrench in my price of diapers argument. Yeah we would save more by using cloth but for that price I really can't say that it's worth the effort. I don't know what I'm going to do. I wish someone had filled our trunk up with disposable diapers then I would have to worry about this but oh well. I really thought that I could handle the cleaning, washing, drying and everything else of the cloth diapers. Now I am not so sure. I'll let you know what I decide! I go to the dr tomorrow but I don't expect anything unusual. Next Monday we will have our 4D sonogram! Anthony will be home on Thursday! I am sorting through baby clothes that were donated today and cleaning house.


  1. Girl....just wait til that baby gets here, there will be no time for washing diapers....i promise! STOP STRESSING! haha!! Michael and I had NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO money when we had Abby....I'm talking-NONE! But somehow we were able to manage paying our bills, putting food on the table, AND buying diapers! haha!!! Another idea....have a "diaper shower." It's a shower where friends/family bring nothing but diapers! It's great!!! I swear we didn't have to buy diapers for Abby until she was almost a year old!!!!!!!!! Good luck girl, but like I said...stop stressing! That little baby is going to be making the calls pretty soon :)
