Now that little Miss Crumbsaver has joined our family, Al and I are finding that diapers have become a very essential part of our lives. And as Al mentioned in a previous post (What Does A Baby Really Need?), because we weren’t sure if cloth diapers would save us money, we decided to experiment with both cloth diapers and disposables on our first little Crumb. We did disposables exclusively for little Crumb’s first 2 months (with little sleep and the learning curve that comes with new parenthood, it was nice to have the convenience and we also were given quite a few boxes for our baby shower) and then transitioned over to cloth diapers while still doing disposables at nights. So now after 1 month of cloth diapering, we thought we’d share with you what we’ve learned on how to save money on cloth diapering.
