I must confess I’m a disposable diapering mom, despite what I’ve heard about the cost-effectiveness and eco-friendliness of cloth diapers.

Frankly, I just don’t want to deal with the mess any more than I have to. And by using coupons and comparing prices, I think I do pretty well at diapering on a budget.

Thousands of blogs and articles comparing cloth diapers to disposable diapers can be found on the web, but I haven’t found any that truly break down the cost of each. So I decided to do it myself.

DISPOSABLE DIAPERS= $875 to $2,072...
CLOTH DIAPERS = $688 to $1,351...
