Is it worth it financially?
Your Baby will Spend a Minimum of 25% Less Time in Diapers
Babies potty train (on average) a year earlier in cloth diapers. Unlike disposables, natural cotton cloth diapers feel wet to your baby...creating a natural incentive to potty train early.
Disposables vs Cloth Analysis
You can now utilize our cloth diaper service for basically the same cost as disposables. For 70 Huggies/week, the cost is $80/month, whereas Pannolino Diaper Service is approximately $88/month for 80 to 90 diapers a week which is the number most babies use.
If you are buying the 'natural' brand disposables, 70/week of these cost approximately $104/month, so you'd be saving almost $20/month!
If you include the average cost of purchasing covers you will spend over the diapering years, add $3.07*(for One-Size covers) to the monthly service cost of $88 for a total of $91.07*/month or only $0.28* per diaper with Pannolino! 'Natural' brand disposables average $0.35/each, GDiapers average $0.47/each, Huggies Snug & Dry average $0.27/each and Huggies Supreme are $0.28/each. Pannolino Diaper Service is definitely an economical option.
