Since her father refuses to use cheap brands, she only uses Pampers. Each diaper costs around 8 pesos. Spending on diapers is literally throwing money away.
Here's my diaper math:
120 pesos/ day
12 months/ year
43,200 pesos!!!! In diapers for a year!
Because I'm Ilonggo, I'm naturally thrifty (okay fine! BARAT! ). So, I decided that we should use lampin. As in the white cloth that I used to wear when I was a baby.
However, the nanny pointed out lampin gets the crib beddings wet. I suppose that's why my mom used a rubber mat when I was a baby.
She said, we need cloth diapers to keep the lampin in place and to help add more absorption.
We bought the lampin from Rustans for 60 pesos for a dozen. The BABYLEAF diapers we bought from www.milkandhoney.ph for 395 pesos per piece.
(I think by now, you notice that I buy a lot of our things from Rustans and at @milkandhoney.ph).
Anyway, since I have G most of the time, I figured I need to give the nanny something to do otherwise, she may feel lost in her new role. It corporate this is what we call "floating" and this status is demotivating. Washing the lampin and the cloth diapers keeps her occupied. Occasionally, I would wash the lampin and she would stop me.
To shift from diapers to cloth diapers, you need the following
-12 pcs Cloth Diapers (atleast)
You don't actually change this all the time. You can change lampin 2-3 times and still use the same cloth diaper provided that the pee or the poop didn't spill.
Each diaper comes with a free reusable liner and you can buy more liners. I personally prefer lampin. #oldschool.
395 php x 12 pcs= 4,740 pesos
- 3 dozen lampins
60x 3= 180 pesos
We didn't completely eliminate the use to diapers. We still use it when we go out.
Any more tipid tips you can share with me?
