Cloth Diaper Mommy

Do you aware that a full diapering baby consumes about RM3942.00 in disposable diaper for 3 years time? With the cloth diaper solution, you will be able to save as much as RM3000.00.

Instead of spending these money into the disposable diaper, should you save the money for your baby and use it for other purpose like nutrition, education, telent development etc?


ClothDiaperMommy.com prepared a projected calculation on the disposable diaper expenses for you. In the calculation ,we assume that you are using a middle range disposable diaper which is about RM0.60 per piece. (The calculated figure subjected to different ways of usage for each individual)


For a full time disposable diapering baby, he/she will probably utilised 6 diapers a day:

Day time usage,  6:00AM - 8:00PM = 14 Hours.

Changing of diaper for every 3 hours: 14 Hours/ 3 = 4.6 , round up to 5 diapers.

Night time usage, 8:00PM - 6:00AM = 10 Hours

Assume your baby only use 1 diaper in night time.

Total: 5 Diapers + 1 Diaper = 6 Diapers per day.

You spend:   6 Diapers x RM0.60 = RM3.60 per day

In 3 years time you spend: 3 years x 365 days x RM3.60=RM3942.00


If you go for cloth diaper solution, and assuming you purchase 10 cloth diaper in 1st year, and each one is about RM44.00, you will spend RM440.00 on you baby diapering.

In the second year, you purchase 5 more new cloth diapers for RM220.00.

In the thid year, you again purchase 5 more new cloth diapers for RM220.00.

Totally in 3 years time, you spend RM440.00 + RM220.00 +RM220.00 = RM880.00


Comparing to Disposable Diaper, your will save  RM3942.00  - RM880.00 = RM3062.00


If you take good care of the cloth diapers, you will have 20 cloth diapers for your next baby, and this will get the money saving in double. What about another more baby ...


What can you do with the RM3062.00?

Assume you do investment in Amanah Saham or Unit Trust, and average you manage to get a long term investment return rate of 8%, when you children's 20th birthday, you prepared RM14,000.00 as his/her birthday gift.  

Should this money go to the disposable diaper company or your children ?

You are the one who make the decision :)
