    Cloth pays for itself very quickly. I have used cloth exclusively with my now 5mo, and I calculated that using full time cloth nappies and wipes saves around $100 per month.

    I have about 50 one-size-fits-all nappies (secondhand BBH fitted and tuttos seconds which were $13-14 each), which I spent about $500-$600 on. so they have already almost paid for themselves.

    And you can either sell them or use them for subsequent babies.

    If I didn't already have adequate nappies, I would definitely be buying the 4 packs as it's a great price for firsts.

    Plus it's fantastic not having nappies in your bin or in landfill.

    Default Tell me I'm not crazy

    If you are using them from birth you will get a lot of use out of them. They suggest 18-20 I think for a new born. I have bought the same pack as you but by 2 and have 7 pikapu's. so in total I will have 15. I will buy a few more. But I am waiting for their limited edition ones to come out. Love the gingerbread man and pow ones. They are addictive!

    It does seem a lot initially but if you weigh up the cost of disposables over a couple of years you will get your monies worth!

    Great deal
    I used cloth on my youngest 3, and am hoping to use them again. Some nappies have lasted that whole time so you will definitely get lots of use out of them!
    I have had ittis in storage for a few years now, and they still look perfect.
