Diapers are a basic necessity for a child and play a key role in a baby’s health and well-being but diapers are expensive. According to the Real Diaper Association, a child will use approximately 2,000 diapers up to the age of two; this equates to around $1,200.00 to $2,400.00 annually or around $100.00 to $200.00 per month. This is per child. Some families have more than one baby wearing diapers. http://youtu.be/
While cloth diapers may save money in the long term, they require an initial investment of money and time that many low-income families can’t afford. To use cloth diapers a family must either hire a diaper service at a monthly charge or have reliable access to a personal washing machine and dryer. Most public Laundromats prohibit the washing of cloth diapers in their machines for sanitary reasons. The majority of daycare centers only accepts disposable diapers and do not accept cloth diapers. A child being turned away from a daycare center can mean a day of missed work for a parent and a cut to their already low income.
