  • We used them for awhile. I didn't mind the extra laundry or the extra bulk when carrying them in thediaper bag or anything, but they did give my son a diaper rash. I tried different diapers, different detergents, different washing methods, and nothing worked, except switching to disposables. I was kind of bummed, but we have to do what's best for our kiddos! :)

  • Oooh I absolutely LOVED my cloth! They didn't cause rashes (DD was allergic to all but 2 or 3 disposable brands), they saved me tons of money, didn't stink up my house (even with a Diaper Genie thing, disposables still made the room smell), and I only had to buy diapers once for 2 years. I will NEVER go back to disposables. Any future children will be in cloth from the time he or she comes out until potty trained.

  • I love cloth diapers and have used them with all 3 of my kids. My youngest is still in diapers and we use the Bum Genius diapers. Great info/prices and customer service at
