How many babies would you have to have...

My hubby asked me how many babies I would need to have to actually save money CD. So how many would you have to have? All you wool mamas have to account for your wool.

Re: How many babies would you have to have...

We use our wool as clothes so not sure I should have to count all of it towards diapering....
I made pretty much my entire stash other than the flats and a few other random diapers and some covers but I think excluding my wool that is used in place of clothes (so not the pull on covers or wraps since they are not clothes) I probably saved money with just one kid or at least broke even but I have 2 in diapers, my sister used my newborn stash, and I would LOVE LOVE LOVE at least one more kiddo and once I sell off what makes it through my kids I think I will more than come out ahead.

Probably 10-12 more kids at least given the size of my stash.

I think I'm doing pretty well so far but can't stop thinking about what I want to buy next!

And wool totally counts as clothing!

Baby #2 on the way will put us ahead. Plus once I sell the newborn stuff we should have over $600 back in the baby fund. My OS stash has only cost $925 so far, so not too terrible.

I voted for 'can't count that high' but in reality I would never save no matter how many kids. I would not be willing to use a cost saving CD stash.

Would you use wool for clothing if you didn't cloth diaper? If there is a fitted under that wool I say count it as diaper cost.

I am already saving money. I have four children, a decent sized stash and I use wool. I use wool over pockets and fitteds so they count towards clothing, plus I sell what I do not need and use that money to buy more.
