What about adult diapers? According to IDiaper, the average wearer uses four a day at a cost of $1.33 per diaper which comes out to, on average, $160.00 per month.

Cloth Diapers for Beginners points out that reusable diapers can cost anywhere from $6.00 to $30.00 for high-end nighttime diapers. If the average household has 24 diapers in their supply and if those diapers cost says $18.00 a piece, the initial cost to get started is $432.00 (this doesn’t include the cost of laundry detergent, stain remover, or water or electricity usage) although, in the end, cloth diapers end up being cheaper than disposable.
