Re: Challenge: Diaper a baby 6-40 lbs under $500

Oo.. I love these!

No buying or selling?? Hmm...

I usually tell people they need a "base" stash of prefolds or flats..

1 bummis newborn package $42 (12 pf 2 covers)
snappi 2 pk $6
2 kissaluv pks from CB (12 fitteds size 0) $144
*use the econobum covers as back ups. These are great with the back rolled down.
total: $192

2 econobum packages $100
1 Bumgenius 12 pack for $215

Infant to toddler stash $315

Total $ 517
*could be less if you ordered 2 Bummis packs for the newborn stage.

Another option...

Buy the Green mountian diaper economy kit.. for $232

4 dozen Cloth-eez Small Unbleached or White Birdseye Flat diapers

5 Thirsties Duo Wrap size ONE Aplix closure, in the gender neutral colors of honeydew, mango, meadow, white and stormcloud

5 Thirsties Duo Wrap size TWO Aplix closure in the gender neutral colors of honeydew, mango, meadow, white and stormcloud

4 GMD slide-lock pins white

2 packs Two-sided white wipes (12 white wipes per pack) - One pack is included FREE (A $10.95 value)

Buy 10 small and 10 large snapless workhorses to use for outings and nights.. $200

Buy 6 small hemp doublers for night times and doubling $36

Total: $468

And one last option:

12 pack of OS dipes $145
1 Smartipants covers 3 packs $40
4 newborn 3 packs $200
2 dozen flats $50 (pick a store)
total $435

There are alot of really great packages out there. I think you could pick any number of them, and fill the gaps with prefolds, or just wash on time and diaper for under $500. I know i have several times.
