Why we clothe diaper

(We should have internet at home in the next few days-hooray! Then I'll be able to post pictures.)
We have been mostly using clothe diapers on the girls since they were about a month old each. We brought our stock of diapers and covers along when we came here. Boy are we glad we did. In a recent super market circular, the cost of a 50 pack Pampers on sale (admittedly not the cheapest brand at home either) was over 18 euro. With the exchange rate what it is (it takes about $1.30 to "buy" one euro) it's almost $25 to buy 50 diapers.  Both girls go through about 5 diapers a day each, so in one month we would need to spend $300 on Pampers! Well worth washing diapers every third day!

Cloth diapers are a great way to go and better for the environment also. The "convenience" of disposable diapers masks the costs of disposing of them. They are great for when you are traveling but otherwise a tremendous expense.
