  • Yes, I have been for the last two years. I feel they are better for baby, the environment and my wallet :-) And no, no service. I prefer to wash them myself.

  • Yes, use cloth (we call them nappies).

    Why;
    They save money, are easy to wash, easy to dry, look cuter than disposables, better for environment, and I just like them better.

    No, never used a service.

  • No, I personally think they're gross but that's just my belief. I feel that store diapers pull the moisture away from the area better than cloth. I also think that if you're using a service then "saving" money goes out the window. I also think that washing them in the same washer I wash my clothes in is gross

  • Yes I use them but have never used a diaper service although it sounds quite appealing - would probably give it a try if I could justify it. :)

    Washing my diapers doesnt really take much effort. Two seconds to put in a machine and then two mins to hang out...every 2 days.

    I really prefer them to disposables. I find doing the washing and drying a lot easier than having a bin full of disposables..dont ask me why I just do!

    To anonymous..I dont think its a good thing to wick the moisture away - especially when its with chemicals..its apparently suppose to be easier to potty train because your child will feel the wetness against their skin. You dont in disposables.

  • I do. I only started using with my second child, and not until around 13/14 mos. I love them. They save me a lot of money. I do not use a service, as I have a washer and dryer in my home.
