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!!
