Before the age of disposable diapers, parents made cloth diapers at home--you can too! The price of diapers can really add up, straining your budget as a new parent. To save on the cost of diapering, you can try making your own prefold diapers using inexpensive sources of fabric like T-shirts and receiving blankets. You can also do this when caught unprepared or in an emergency. To avoid rashes, be sure to change these types of diapers frequently.
