Re: I don't understand people who say disposables are cheaper

I don't know why either. Disposables were very expensive for us. My oldest was in sposies until we switched to cloth at a year. e tried every single brand under the sun and the only one he could wear and not explode out of were Huggies Supreme. The best price at the time was from Costco at just under $40. Then we went through wipes like water at about $20 a month. We did a whole cost analysis and spreadsheet to determine exactly how much we had spent and what our average costs were. I was actually shocked when I saw what our savings would be even if we switched and he PTed by age 2. He actually did not train until he was almost 3 and then was in night diapers until age 4. My 3rd child is now wearing those same diapers that have obviously paid for themselves many times over.
