    I'm just curious as I know a lot of you use cloth or considering it - How much money in a year does it save you compared to using disposable nappies?

    :oops: :D

    Probably not much at the moment as I keep buying them!

    It's difficult to measure as I sell on ones that don't work and get 50-75% back on their value and I don't know my laundering costs?

    It's not a regular chunk every week like disposables. If I feel skint we can manage (very easily :oops: ) on the stash we have, if I'm flush I spend.

    He even had some for Christmas gifts which wouldn't happen with Pampers!

    I suppose they'll really come into their own on baby #2, where the initial outlay will be much less. :?

    It's definitely cheaper even for a nappy addict like me! :D

    Well if i didn't buy a new one every month it would be a great deal :oops:

    I worked out i was spending around £40 a month on disposables and wipes

    So thats £480

    My intial outlay of nappies and bits was £80 ( ebay bargain :) )
    I've prob added another £80 to that with bits and bobs

    So in a year i would have saved about £300 i think
