How Inflation is Affecting the Affordability of Cloth and Disposable Diapers

Inflation is causing a tremendous strain on many families with children still in diapers. The cost of diapers has risen approximately 14% over the past year. It is estimated that a child can go through around 6,000 diapers before completing potty training. So, how can parents save money on these necessities? Here is everything you need to know about the rising costs of inflation on cloth and disposable diapers and how you can save money.

Disposable Diaper Costs

Disposable diapers offer convenience for families but are typically more expensive than cloth diapers and create environmental concerns. Diapers from top ‘green’ brands can cost between 37 and 90 cents each. Rising inflation costs have recently driven up regular brands’ prices by approximately $20 per box. In addition, with manufacturing supply chain problems and worker shortages, parents may see the price of disposable diapers continue to rise. In comparison, Do Good Diapers can cost 30 to 43 cents per diaper and create less environmental impact than typical cloth or disposable diapers.

Cloth Diaper Costs

Many parents opt for cloth diapers to save money, but washing at home will require more work for many busy families. Keeping a child in cloth diapers can take up to six hours a week just for washing, drying and folding. Considering the extra energy costs for frequent laundering, the financial impact can be a strain with rising inflation. This laundering also creates a much bigger carbon footprint than disposable diapers.
