That's a bummer. They're pretty much all we used until I started CD DD2 at age 2. By the time we made the switch to cloth we were going through one big box every four weeks, so it really was only costing us about $25/month w/out coupons (not including wipes.) DD was not a heavy wetter -- with the overnight diaper and getting changed every 2-3 hours during the day we were going through 5-6 diapers a day.

Between what I bought for her, my guesstimate at the cost to clean them, and then what I got back when I sold some diapers, I figure we just about broke even in four months. For us it definitely would be cheaper in the long run to use cloth.
