8th Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge - Day 2 - What's in your flats stash? How much did it cost? #flatschallenge



Welcome to Day 2 of the 8th Annual Flats and Handwashing Challenge! If you're new to the Challenge, please read more about what's going on this week as families all over the world will be diapering their babies with flat diapers and handwashing for a whole week. Today's topic is "What's in your flats stash and how much did it cost?" Participants were able to use commercially purchased flat diapers or flour sack towels, homemade flats, basically any material that is made with a single layer of fabric. In addition to flats, they can use diaper covers, diaper closures (Snappis, pins, etc), and a doubler if necessary. 

For the Challenge, I'm using the same flats that I have from my first born. I've added many new diapers over the years, but flats isn't something I've purchased since my son who is almost 7!

6 Blueberry flats $16 (discontinued) 

These are the old printed Blueberry flats and my absolute favorite! These are now discontinued which is a bummer because I love them so much!

12 Osocozy flats $24

These are great basic flats. There's nothing really special about them. They are a bit smaller than the Blueberry flats, but the size is perfect for my newborn.

3 Various PUL Diaper Covers $84 (about $14 each for 3 covers for each baby)

I have a lot of covers in my regular cloth diapers stash. I don't anticipate that I'll need to use them all for the Challenge, especially since I can get multiple uses out of each one. I think I could definitely get away with 2-3 covers for the whole Challenge. My favorite brands for covers are Bambino Mio, Thirsties, and Rumparooz

Snappis $10 (3-pack)

I have 3 Snappis that I'm using with my 1 month old. For my toddler, I've mostly been padfolding so I haven't needed any type of fastener. 

Since I'm handwashing daily I don't really need a bigger stash. It is a bit tight with 2 in cloth though. I'm mostly using the Blueberry flats on my toddler and the Osocozy for my newborn. 

For handwashing, I use my sink or bathtub and detergent. So I'm not adding in the cost of any materials for that. I do use cloth wipes but I also haven't calculated that here. 

Actual cost of my stash $134 (for 2 babies in cloth)
