Cloth Diapers: How We Did It BY RICHARD FRIESNER J ust over three years ago when my wife and I had our first child, we wanted to try reusable diapers. We used them for the duration of our son's diapering period, with the exception of the potty training period. Our main interests in these diapers were three fold, 1. reduced cost 2. good for the environment 3. to test our commitment to living 'sustainably.' 1. cost I worked it out using an excel spreadsheet, local water costs and gallons used per diaper. It turns out that it is less expensive to use reusable diapers, especially if you can use them for the duration of your child's diaper time. In the end a reusable diaper's cost is just pennies. 30 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • August 2013
