Best investment for our family! I did use disposables for about a month during a move and my washer breaking. I was so happy when I went back to cloth. I spent 400 dollars for my diaper stash, pail, pail liner, wet bag, and diaper sprayer, as well as detergent. My son is now almost 19 months old and I think these diapers will hold up ( bumgenius ) for a future baby.
