Save Over $1000 vs Disposable Diapers!
You will save a minimum of $1000 using Bear Bottoms Cloth Diaper Service vs Disposables…
The average baby will go through as many as 7,500 diapers from birth to toilet training… that is a LOT of diapers! In fact, disposable diapers are the single most expensive part of raising a baby. You will save at least $1,000 using Bear Bottoms Fitted Cloth Diaper Service vs disposables over the time your baby is in diapers. On a week to week basis, Bear Bottoms is cheaper than disposables and you will never run out and never have to go out to buy diapers. But the biggest cost savings is due to early potty training for cloth diapered babies which on average results in a full year of not having to buy diapers and not having to change diapers!
Disposable Diapers Are Expensive
Let’s estimate the cost of diapering your baby with disposables…
- Small (Newborn – 2 mths): Average baby uses 90 diapers per week = 720 diapers @ 90/bag = 7 bags = $200
- Medium (2 mths to 6 mths): Average baby uses 80 diapers per week = 1,440 diapers @ 70/bag = 21 bags = $525
- Large (6 mths to 24 mths): Average baby uses 60 diapers per week = 4,680 diapers @ 50/bag = 94 bags = $2,350
- Toddler (24 mths to 30 mths): Average baby uses 50 diapers per week = 1300 diapers @ 40/bag = 33 bags = $825
- Total cost over 30 mths for disposable diapers = $3,900 *Disposable pricing based on $25 per bag
Our cloth diaper service will save you money…
- Bear Bottoms Cloth Diaper Service weekly cost for unlimited diapers is $19.95 + a small fuel charge based on your location. That’s cheaper than a bag of disposables!

- Total cost over 30 mths = $3,100
The average family will save $800 using Bear Bottoms Cloth Diaper Service vs. disposable diapers when comparing the same time period. However, since most cloth diapered babies are fully toilet trained by 24 months of age, you will likely spend less than $2,500 if you use Bear Bottoms until your baby has graduated from diapers.
Early Potty Training
In addition to being cheaper on a week to week basis, there is also the benefit of early toilet training that you will experience with cloth diapers. This represents the most significant cost savings. The difference between cloth and disposable diapers is that in cloth, your baby will feel when they are wet whereas the chemicals in disposable diapers mask the feeling of being wet and your baby will not know they are sitting in a dirty diaper. Feeling wet helps incent babies to use the potty. Most of our clients begin toilet training their babies by 18 months of age. The typical baby using cloth diapers is fully toilet trained by 2 years of age. The average age when toddlers are toilet trained using disposable diapers is between 3 and 3.5 years of age. That’s at least one full year of not having to buy diapers and not having to change diapers!
Added bonus: when your baby lets you know it is time for a change you will not need to check regularly to see if a change is needed to ensure your baby does not develop diaper rash. It is a fact that babies wearing cloth diapers experience considerably less incidence of diaper rash than babies in disposable diapers.
