So.... I changed her about 12 times (!) a day for the first 3 weeks, but only about 8 times a day now, so let's pretend she's 5 weeks old.
Pampers Baby Dry - Micro were Ã‚Â£2.74 for 24 - 274 / 24 = 11.42p per nappy.
3 weeks at 12 - 3 x 7 = 21 x 12 x 11.42 = 2877.84p - Ã‚Â£28.78
2 weeks at 8 - 2 x 7 = 14 x 8 x 11.42 = 1279.02p - Ã‚Â£12.79
TOTAL - Ã‚Â£12.79 + Ã‚Â£28.78 = Ã‚Â£41.57
15 Fuzzis at Ã‚Â£115 - 115 - 12.79 - 28.78 = Ã‚Â£73.43
12.79 / 2 = Ã‚Â£6.80 a week.
Plus the wear on my washing machine (which only cost Ã‚Â£70 anyway... so not a lot of cost there), detergent etc. - Don't know hoe to factor in the machine and electricity though.
Fairy non-bio liquid - 1 bottle - Ã‚Â£3.29
Lavender and tea tree oils - Ã‚Â£9
Nappy Bucket - Ã‚Â£5
TOTAL - Ã‚Â£17.29 + Ã‚Â£73.43 = Ã‚Â£90.72
Ã‚Â£90.72 / Ã‚Â£6.80 = 13.34 weeks
So at 8 nappies a day, I need to use them for 93.4 more days to make my money back. Or if I sell them on at Ã‚Â£5 each (I really, really take good care of these - pristine!), 2.3 weeks, or 16 days.
