  • anon...i think she means not just the white squares but the new ones they come out with that look like diapers and have designs ( i guess thats what you mean!) And yes! I would be willing to buy them! I was just thinking that the other day how nice it would be not to have to order them or go to a speciality store. Now I would buy a small pack of disposables for if we go on the road or out somewhere but i would love to try them out! I just dont have the resources to get them.

  • I'd probably try a couple but I don't think it'd change the way I diaper either.

  • probably not... although for some people, I find cloth diapers disgusting. Now when I was a baby my skin was so sensitive I had to wear cloth or my skin bleed. If I had a child like that I would change my views in a heartbeat, but for now I'm gonna stick with my disposable.

  • Nope, I can barely keep up with the laundry I have, I am not going to add more to it on purpose :)

  • I cloth diaper. I have some of the gerber prefolds from walmart. I wish there were retail stores that carried GroVia. Waiting for new diaper covers is miserable!

    Also, if the cloth diapers were available in stores, I would have actually gotten some at my shower. I got 2 items on my registry because stores don't stock cloth diaper gear very well at all.

  • Probably. I ended up switching to cloth after coming accross some really cheap Chinese diapers on Ebay. I don't remember how I came accross them. I thought about it off and on for a long time, then came across them again and just decided to go for it and try a few. The cheapness was a huge part of it though, if I saw cloth diapers at Wal Mart for $20 a diaper I'd skip them and buy a box of 100 disposables instead, but for $5 or less per diaper it's worth it to me to try them out.
