That cloth diapers are so expensive and have huge start up costs? If you do it right they can be way cheap.

I got 16 used pocket diapers for $40- craigslist

And another 7 used pocket diapers for $12-fb page called cloth diaper swap

They were in brand new used condition and I don't have to buy a special laundry detergent I mean I would if my child had a problem with the cheap stuff but he doesn't. I have enough diapers that I can go 2-3 days betweenwashes .

I guess not everyone is comfortable with used but there are co-ops that you can get into then you can get brand new diapers for used prices... However it could take a month or so to get.
Just like anything in life do it right and look for a good deal.

I am not sure. My mum had to use them on me and she said it was cheaper than disposable.

I would never knock cloth diapers vs disposable. But used diapers? I would not feel comfortable with that for sanitary reasons. You have to literally bleach and wash in extremely hot water to ensure it is fully sanitized.

Just curious, where did you look to find those deals?

What is "doing it right"? Lol. I like the super cute ones! The cheapest way isn't necessarily the "right" way.

Well I mean if you actually look for a deal and shop around vs buying brand new.

I don't know.  They are made to be washed and reused, so I do not really see why it would matter if another child used them first.  I am sure my mother used the same ones for all three of her children until they wore out.  I guess I could see why the idea that someone you may not know used them could feel "icky", I guess, but if you are going to wash them anyway and they are not horrifically stained, I do not see the problem. :)

You can get into a co-op for brand new ones but it could take some time.

I wouldn't feel comfortable buying used ones if I was having another baby.
