Baby Basics by the Numbers


Diapering:
  • Cloth diapering: 20 Infant size diapers $188 + 2 packages of 10 washable liners $22 +
    3 rolls of flushable-biodegradable liners(100 sheets per roll) $24 = $234/yr. or + overnight disposables $21 pp (x 7 = $147) = $381/yr.
  • Disposable Diapers: $42-47 (106) x 26 wks. = $1,157/yr.
You save between $923 and $776 a year, won't that look nice in the savings account?

Breastfeeding vs Formula Feeding
  • Breastfeeding: Breasts $0 + Breast Pump $50-300 + Bottles (10) $30= $80-330/yr.

  • Formula Feeding: Formula $22-28/wk. x 52 wks= $1, 300 (avg.) + Bottles (10) $30 = $1,330/yr.
You save between $1,250 and $1,000 a year, that's a nice chunk of change!
