You can go full time with cloth diapers or just have a couple of them; every cloth diaper you use can help your budget and the environment. The key is to find what works best for your family and your life.
Dana from DiaperDirt.com has found what works best for her family. She has a 7 year old girl, twin 3 year old boys, and a 10 month old girl. Dana is passionate about cloth diapering and wants to encourage everyone to try it – “It’s not as complicated or hard as you think.” She started looking in to cloth diapering when she knew she was having twins and didn’t want to spend so much on disposable diapers. Dana figured out that they had paid $3,000.00 for 3 years of disposable diapers with their first child. She was able to get 3 years worth of cloth diapers for her twins [2 kids!] for only $1,000.00.
You’ll find everything you need to know to get started making your child more comfortable, saving money, and going green, in the The Cloth Diaper Bible. You can join the cloth diaper movement that is growing daily, and reap the rewards.

Dana also shares some tips about life with twins – especially when they are newborns.
