You can totally cd your baby..and on much less than $200 - $300! Do you have a sewing machine, or someone who can lend you one? You can make yourself a stash of prefolds from old t-shirts, flannel sheets and wool soakers from old sweaters. You could also get great deals on prefolds from granitesmith on ebay. Actually..you could find some great deals on used prefolds on ebay as well. A lot of times I've seen "starter stashes" that include prefolds, snappis, pins, and an assortment of covers for around $100. You can get prorap seconds from the company for $4
3 doz infant pf's would be about $50
4 nb prorap $16
4 small prorap $16
2-3 snapppi's $6
small used aristocrat $10 or so on the TP
And as your babe grew, you could resell the infant pf's to size up to either reg. or premiums. And re-sell the NB proraps to size up to smalls and mediums. A small aristocrat would fit for a long time and would work great for overnight. You could make yourself some fleece liners from $1 yard microfleece at walmartFrugal Diapering
You can still do it mama!!
