  • With the innovations in regular diapers these days, diaper clothes are actually a bother, messy and unsanitary. Do some more research on the internet.

  • This is really a personal choice. I think cloth diapers are great and I switched back and forth from them with my son for almost a year. Great way to save money and great for baby's skin, but cleaning them is a pain in the butt lol As long as you don't mind that part of it then go for it!

  • I am disageeing with PP on this one.

    They have come a long way with cloth diapers. They are no longer the time-consuming, wash me out in the toilet that they once were. They make pants (look like a disposable) with an insert that you toss in the trash and then just put a new one in.

    Here is one example

  • It's up to you. I think I would have tried it if I hadn't had so many in diapers at the same time.
