When it comes to cost, reusable diapers have the upper hand. Most parents who use this option usually have around 20 to 30 diapers that they reuse for their child in their diaper-wearing years, which comes out to a general estimate of $300. However, this does not include utility costs, such as the price of water, electricity, and gas for washing. On the other hand, you will inevitably spend more money if you choose to use disposable diapers, where you can expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $850 per year per year, depending on the brand you choose.
As previously mentioned, disposable diapers are better at absorbing fluids. While this can be a good thing, it can cause problems for potty training. Since they are a lot more absorbent, the baby won’t feel the wetness and will have no desire to move away from diapers. With reusable ones that are less absorbent, the baby will feel the uncomfortable wetness quicker, making it easier for parents to potty train them.
