  • I LOVE using them - we save so much money, they are gentler on Peanut's skin, we produce far less garbage, and she looks super cute in them :)

  • We use cloth and we love them. We use prefolds with Thirsties covers at home and then pocket diapers when out and about. My husband is okay with them, even the prefolds. I just asked him if he liked using cloth and he said he didn't really care, it's pee and poop either way.

  • Love them. Check out this site
    They were the most inexpensive ones I could find, via a suggestion on here. And I LOVE them.

  • I used cloth diapers on Felipe the whole time and I would never use anything else. I tried a few different kinds and had different faves at different stages. We saved tons of money, saved Felipe's sweet little bottom from harsh chemicals, and saved tons of trash from going into the landfill. Then I was also able to donate the diapers to another family when Felipe was finished with them. "Cloth diapers - saving the planet, one bum at a time!!"

    Also, I LOVED the Cafe Mom cloth diapers group!!! A wealth of information!!

  • for the comment about a strong stomach, I don't see that it's any different from changing any other poopy diaper lol! You do have to dump the poop in the toilet but I read somewhere (I know, not the best source!) that NO human poop is ever supposed to go into the trash, so technically you are supposed todump poop out of the 'sposies befoore tossing them too!
