.:the cost comparison:.
If you’ve decided that cloth diapering is a pretty grand idea, lets strengthen your resolve. Take a look at this:
The commercial brands listed above were chosen for comparison as they are most similar in style and function to Fresh Bum. This way prices can be compared realistically.
The Fresh Bum materials numbers and calculations were taken directly from a receipt of materials personally purchased for the making of 30 diapers and 60 inserts. (KAM snap pliers were included in the list as it’s not a really common thing to have kicking around a sewing room. Those who already have their own – bonus!) Those passionate for finding the best deals and sniffing out sales could reduce the cost even further.You have been challenged!

If using commercial cloth diapers, it’s commonly necessary bolster the diaper with extra inserts or buy replacements.
As in the above, Fresh Bum insert numbers and calculations were taken directly from a receipt of personally purchased materials. Depending on the choice / number of second hand shops in your area, better figures may be possible!
