  1. Ella (Tucson ,  Arizona) paid $ and said:

    How is it possible that the average use of diapers a day, for the first year is 5. When the first 3/4 of their 1st year is 3x that and the last 1/4 of their 1st year is 5-7 diapers a day. The math just doesn’t add up. My daughter is 7 1/2 months and we use about 7-10 diapers a day, depending on weather she is at daycare. At daycare they change her every 2 hours! We use cloth diapers at home and on the weekends. I work 3 days a week. We have a wash routine, no diaper service. This has saved use tons! Plus, we plan on using these same cloth diapers for our future children. We do however, use disposables for overnight use and at daycare. Daycare puts in her cloth for her last diaper change. Hope this helps!
