Cloth diapering a newborn

I was looking at our packed-full consignment section today, thinking about how you could buy all the diapers and accessories you needed for fairly cheap, and consequently be able to diaper a newborn without a huge investment. Then you could keep the diapers for a subsequent child or sell them back to us. Here are a couple of options:

#1) 18 Kissaluvs Size 0 (5-15 lbs) @ $11 + 1 each @ $9: Prorap (6-10 lbs), Bummis Super Whisper Wrap (4-9 lbs), 3 Motherease Rikki Wraps (6-12 lbs), Thirsties cover (5-12 lbs) = $252 (compare to 8 weeks of whichever brand of disposable diapers you would be using).

Amount you would receive to reconsign in same condition = $126 (total cost of minimum 6-8 weeks of cloth diapering = $126).

#2) 12 organic cotton prefolds (10 @ $2, 2 @ $1.50) + 1 each @ $9: Prorap (6-10 lbs), Bummis Super Whisper Wrap (4-9 lbs), 2 Motherease Rikki Wraps (6-12 lbs) = $59 (again, compare to 8 weeks of whichever brand of disposable diapers you would be using).

Amount you would receive to consign in same condition = $29.50 (total cost of minimum 6-8 weeks of cloth diapering = $29.50).

I could have fun all day making up starter packs of diapers for different ages! But I thought this shows with just what we currently have in stock, what you can get to start off – talk about savings!
