    Used Cloth Diapers

    Cloth diapers can save money but the start up costs for it can be intimidating. We have a reader looking for sources for used diapers. Can you help?

     

    I am soon to become a new mommy and want very much to try cloth diapering to save money, protect the environment, and diaper naturally. The quality of cloth diapers, covers, and accessories appears to be very expensive. Does anyone know of a good company or resource out there with dependable, easy-to-use, economical supplies? Especially for good used cloth diapers? Need quickly! Thanks!

    Re: Used Cloth Diapers

     I used cloth diapers for my youngest but she is almost eight so it has been many years since we have used them.

    Does anyone have current information?

     Hi,

     My daughter had a baby in June, and my other daughter is having a baby this June.  Some of the prices are completely rediculous.  The most reasonable ones we could find are

    Kawaii (they make several different kinds):

    and  Sunbaby:

    Hope this helps!  Good Luck!

    Re: Used Cloth Diapers

     If you have a pattern, and basic sewing skills, you can make cloth diapers from a variety of fabrics, including old cotton t-shirts.  You can put cute flannel fabric on the "outside" if you want to, but a little elastic enclosed in the leg sides is a popular pattern.  It does not cost much to make your own diapers, especially if you use sheets & t-shirts from freecycle or thrift stores. 

    There is a link under 'Heirloom Sewing" with several free cloth diaper patterns on theprudenthomemaker.com site, as well as some sewing advice on making your own.
