7!! Yep thats right 7!!!

I thought 1 baby at a time would more than do it for me, but for this lady she was blessed with 7 babies born by c-section!!

I give her props, not only has she just delivered 7 babies but she has 3 other kids at home!

I'm wondering if she cloth diapers or uses sposies??

Just some moola comparisons (multiply the amount by the # of babies in diapers)

Disposable Diapers: (per baby)

Disposable diapers get more expensive as they get larger, but the average cost is about $.35/diaper. Based on 6,500 changes (average 7 - 8/day), cost would be $2,275. for 2 ½ years. However, babies diapered in disposables tend to be changed less often than babies diapered in cloth. Based on an average of 5 - 6 changes/day, cost for 5,019 diapers would be $1,757. Cost of 1,500 disposable wipes would be about $100., making the totals $1,857 to $2,375. (average .37/change)

Cloth - (prices could be more or less depending on the price of the diapers & current utility fees)

*

*

*

power to run washer (.76kwh @. 07 = .05/load) $13.55;
*
depreciation on washer and dryer (.16 for washer .09 for dryer = .25/load) $67.75

$436 for laundry + $100 for square diapers, etc. = $536. (average .08/change).
