• Cloth diapers will vary, costing as low as $300 for a basic set-up of six dozen prefolds and covers to $1,000 or more for organic cotton fitted diapers and wool covers. Most varieties last for two children. This means the cost of cloth diapering is about one tenth the cost of disposables and you can spend even less by recycling your old towels and T-shirts.
For cloth diapering, you'll need to buy around six-dozen diapers. The cost can vary considerably, so do compare prices. Organic cotton fitted diapers and wool covers are more expensive than more generic pre-folded ones, although they may reduce the need to purchase diaper cream.
