How to cloth diaper your baby for under $100

There are many reasons to use cloth diapers.  Some parents use them because cloth diapers are environmentally-friendly, while others love how much money cloth diapers save them.  Often, it is a combination of these and other cloth diaper benefits that lead parents to decide to cloth diaper their children.

As Stella's Baby Boutique's founder and owner, I was first attracted to cloth diapering because of the savings.  Sadly, many parents feel they are unable to switch to cloth diapers because the initial costs can be intimidating.  In fact, parents who are living in poverty are sometimes forced to resort to reusing disposable diapers.

When I heard about this, I decided to design a package that allows my customers to diaper their children from birth to potty-training for less than $100 total. That's right.  You can cloth diaper for under $100!

The package includes the following items:
  1. 6 Buttons diaper covers of the buyer's choice
  2. 15 Osocozy flat diapers
  3. 2-pack of Snappis diaper fasteners
  4. 1 Kawaii Goodnight Heavy Wetter
Purchased separately, these items would cost well over $100, but if you purchase the package, the entire lot is just $99.  And it ships for free!

In addition to the items listed above, this package also comes with an informational brochure to help those who are new to cloth diapering figure out how best to utilize this package in order to best meet your child's needs.  Stella's Baby Boutique is always available to help answer cloth diapering questions.  Email us anytime!

Benefits of cloth diapering

Cloth diapering is slowly but surely becoming a more popular choice for parents in the United States.  Although the majority of parents still use disposable diapers, concerns about the environment, as well as other factors, have spurred public interest in alternatives to disposable diapers.
 
The benefits of cloth diapering are numerous and significant. Many people are surprised to find that they prefer cloth over disposables.  Listed below are just a few of the reasons why people choose cloth diapers.
 
  1. Cloth diapers are far better for the environment than disposables.  The average child will use more than 6,000 diapers from birth to potty training. Imagine filling a truck with 6,000 diapers and then dumping them all into a landfill.  Now imagine that those diapers contain human waste, and you can really get a feel for how damaging disposable diapers are to our environment.
  2. Cloth diapers are very affordable.  While the upfront costs can be high, depending on what diapering options you select, you can potentially save thousands of dollars by using cloth diapers instead of disposables.
  3. Cloth diapers provide a safe alternative to chemical-ridden disposable diapers.  Disposable diapers contain many chemicals that are potentially harmful to your child, including dioxins, which have been linked to many long-term health issues.  In fact, according to the website Livestrong.com, research indicates that "disposable diapers should be considered to be a factor that may cause or worsen childhood asthma and respiratory problems."
  4. Cloth diapers make for much cuter baby pictures.  It may sound silly, but with all the bright colors and fun prints that cloth diapers come in, you may find that they make for better pictures.  Case in point, my own son, pictured below in his Grinch diaper.  You cannot tell me this picture would be quite the same with a disposable diaper.


If you think you can't afford the upfront cost of cloth diapering, consider this.  At Stella's Baby Boutique, we offer a package that is designed to allow you to cloth diaper your child from birth to potty training for less than $100. This is the cheapest way to cloth diaper your baby that we offer.  It includes daily use diapers, overnight diapers, and an informational packet that teaches users how to use the diapers in this package to full advantage.

Our mission is to make sure that anyone who wants to cloth diaper can do so.  Please contact
Stella's Baby Boutique with any questions on how to get started with cloth diapering or any other aspect of cloth diapering.
