  • i highly recommend cloth diapers! check out my journal post about the different kinds:

    my personal favourite are the bumGenius! one-size 3.0 diapers. they fit from birth to potty training, so its a one time investment.

    i have g-diapers for the babysitter and for when i'm out and about. even if you simply throw away the gdiaper liners its still so much better than disposables, because gdiapers will decompose in a matter of months as opposed to centuries.

    if you have any questions, feel free to message me. i love talking about my diapers ^_^

  • I respect you for wanting to try cloth diapers. Good luck. I wouldn't do it myself... I use pampers, and have had a few issues with Huggies. Pampers rock!

  • I always used Pampers and they never leaked or caused rash. Huggies gave me some issues so I will use Pamps again.

    How do cloth diapers work anyway? I mean I get the basic idea but how do you keep up with all the changes and do you just wash a poopy diaper in your washer? Sounds yucky to me.

  • I use whatever diaper has a good sale and a coupon. I never had any issues with any brand of diapers. I've never used cloth because I have enough laundry as it is. I recycle cans and newspapers and carpool.
