8 Smart Tips To Cloth Diaper On A Tight Budget

Many choose cloth diapering because they are on a tight budget and can’t afford to spend 50 dollars every month on disposables.

The great news is that cloth diapering doesn’t have to be all fancy, Sure there are cloth diapers that cost 30$ per price, but there are a lot of affordable cloth diapers too.

Depending on the type of the cloth diaper you choose, we can always work on your budget to set up a cloth diaper stash for you. Heck ! you can even build a full stash for less than 100 dollars.

Flat diaper inserts are a single square piece of weaved cotton material that can be folded in multiple ways to fit into a cloth diaper cover.

1.Go With Flat Inserts

Next on the most affordable cloth diapering system list is prefolds and covers. If folding flat inserts scare you, then prefold diapers are your best bet.

2. Choose Prefolds

Unlike flats, they come pre-stiched with many layers of absorbency sewn together. Just like flat inserts, prefolds can be folded in many different ways to get maximum absorbency.

If you can’t get on board with flats or prefolds, but can’t spend 20$ per diaper to buy pockets or all in ones, then buying used diapers is another excellent option.

3. Buy Used Cloth Diapers

If you can put your sewing skills to work, you can find some free cloth diaper patterns online and make your own diaper and inserts.

4. Sew Diapers

All you need is to buy some PUL for diaper covers, elastics, snaps and absorbent material like cotton fabric to make inserts.

Piggybacking on the last point, you can use what you already have in your home to make cloth diaper covers, inserts, and accessories.
