I know we don't all use cloth just for environmental reasons, but I was amazed when I entered my info for this ticker... My LO is nearly 4 months old and we didn't start using them until he was 3 weeks old.

How many nappies a week are they assuming that we save and I'll do the math?

You enter how many you use... I put 10 a day for the first month and then 8 a day since then. I was amazed it was so many when I've only used them for 13 weeks.

5047 for my youngest (who is still in cloth full time so that number will keep going up)

and 5751 for my eldest. She's no longer in cloth.

I possibly underestimated mine because I based it on 8 a day, then 6 a day (inc night nappy)

ooh and I went one step further...cost

So that's a total of 10,798 nappies, which are around 15p each so based on that I would've spent £1,619.70!!! And when you consider that my youngest is still in nappies full time, that number would just keep going up!

We won't dwell on the fact that I've probably spent that on cloth nappies and wool anyway ...lol BUT I can sell them on and get some of my money back :P
