So DH and I have been kicking around the idea of CD'ing our new baby once he/she arrives in November. But I've been doing a lot of research and it seems that by the time we buy enought diapers for home and my mom's (she keeps him five days a week while we work) house, plus the sprayers for the toilet and whatever other random things we would need, it wouldn't be that much cheaper! I know it's more environmentally friendly, but we figured about $500 total for the supplies to CD...and if we spend $30 per month in diapers for two years it's $720....a $200 savings over the course of two years to me doesn't seem worth the loss of convenience. But I WANT to be proven wrong!!! I kind of like the idea of CD'ing but DH is only really on board if the savings are significant enough to sacrifice convenience.....View Thread
