  • We do :) We started CDing at 5 months old (with my 3rd child) and have been using cloth ever since (he's now 18 months). He's potty training (not that I think it's the cloth, but it may be what helped!) and we've saved a bundle of money. I just wish I had thought of it with my other two, could have saved even more! LOL

  • I did! Saved a ton of money. Its extra work, but worth saving the money.

  • I do...however with the next baby I am going to try elimination communication.

    My son is 16 months and I am starting to get him to know the potty and toilet and only just found out about EC. Wish I had known sooner.

    Love my cloth though...don't have to worry about leaks at night (which I have found happens with disposables when we go away for the weekend with no access to washing machine).

  • I did not use them with my daughter, and I began using them with my son around 13-14 months. He's 20 mos now, and we still love 'em.

  • I have a one month old and we're using g diapers (with cloth inserts) but are just barely starting to use them because we had to wait until she weighed enough.

  • I used cloth on both my babies (17 moms apart so I had 2 in cloth for over a year!). I loved using cloth. I used the all-in-ones. I did use disposables overnight.
