Ok.. well, you can rip up or cut up something old for wipes! That doesn't take sewing skills! I am sorry.. get me talking about CDs and I can't shut up! Does that site have pictures? That is what I was after.. lol. Yes, I would most def look into shipping! However, just note that all in ones (aio) are more expensive than a lot of other diapers! I am not sure if 18 will be enough.. that will depend on how often you want to wash.. and how she many she is going through now. Also, how much do you spend on wipes and diapers now and how long before you start to potty train her? We will figure out if this will be worth it in the long run or not. Do you mean wash my hand hand, or washing machine? I soak mine over night.. then run them through in the morning with an extra rinse.. so, that all depends on how fast your washing is! We hand ours so will you be hanging them on the line, or using the dryer? Let me get you some links to read up on. brb

Lisa, you're too much for me! I work too much for some of this stuff, I think - I'd topple over exhausted. As it is, I can't see by the end of the week... Having said that, let me be more specific: I don't sew, so buying any old fabric and organizing it for a diaper isn't an option. I can't let you see the site I found unless you read Hebrew - sorry. Though, I must say, I found a similar package on an American site for about $270 - what a price difference! Well, okay, different packages. The Israeli version were diapers that require covers. The American package I found that I liked were All-in-ones - how cool! And so, far less supplies and short 2 diapers - i.e. 18 diapers.

Maybe I should check International shipping and get them from overseas? Are 18 diapers gonna be enough? With that price difference is the value worth it? How long will it take me to wash the diapers by hand?

Going back where I came from...

DONE!

I am copying the questions you asked and pasting them on top.. my answers are below it.

You said... "Ok ladies. I went to see what this deal looks like if I decide to take on the challenge. I found a site in English with a sister site that imports to Israel. They offer a package of 20 diapers, 10 absorbing pads and 3 covers. So:
what are the absorbing pads? are they multiple use too?
do i have to use covers?
do the covers get dirty too?

having asked my questions, is it really cheaper? this is the only way i can get dh on board. i mean, what about the following:

- is teh above quantity in the package enough or do i need more?

- baby is 1 1/2 already. how many more diapers will i need in her life time? the package above costs about $455. i don't think i need more than $455 in diapers before she potty trains? what do you think?

Answer these questions and this will tell us more.. I personally use different type than Kai.. but I go cheaper and have a super soaker!
Can you sew? That will cut down greatly! You can use old t-shirst, flannel blankets, sheets, and sweaters if you can.. cuts down on the cost GREATLY! Will you have more children? They can always be re-used.. AND you can resell them! When I first started, I bought used.. and then resold them for what I paid for! When do you plan on PT? And how much do you spend a month of sposies right now? Do you have a link to the site you found? I am really interested in what kind and type they are! I am assuming absorbing pads are what we call doublers.. these you put in the diaper for extra absorbency (like mine has to use one during the day and two at night or I have to change every 30 minutes..lol) How often do you want to wash? I wash every other day.. if you want to wash every day, you wouldn't need that many..(washing is super easy and we can get to that later) figure out how many times you change her during the day and night now.. that will give us some insight on what is going on there. Yes, you will need covers.. well, we run around without them during the day here.. but we actually top them with wool when we go out and night time (different than what Kai uses) also, you can use fleece! Do you have thrift type stores where you can buy old sweaters? I started out with buying old 100% wool sweaters and making my own covers! Yes, the covers can get dirty so they will have to be washed when they are.. when I used normal covers, I washed them every day.. my wool, I was every couple weeks...unless it gets poopy (dh sometimes just doesn't fold right..lol) Ok.. I have given you a lot of questions back.. we can find you the cheapest and best way to try mama!!
