This is what you can expect to pay for disposables (and this was done BEFORE the recent increase in disposable prices in March 2011!)

 

Grand Total: $2577.35 to buy disposable diapers/ baby over 2.5 years

 Average cost per change: $0.36

 7,159.31 = # of changes/baby over 2.5 years

 $2577.35 + 10%= $2835.08 translates into about $.40 each change

*Don't forget about the cost as a community to dispose of the disposables in the landfill!!*
