wow!


I cloth.   And not only what you show there in the pic for one year, but babies use them for a couple years usually, and they are also used for future babies too.

Cloth makes my youngest break out in AWFUL rashes, even when she would get changed every hour. I still don't know what was causing it but ever since I switched to disposables the rashes have stopped.
It sucks because I LOVE cloth.

ah bummer!
Maybe the type of material against her skin, or the detergent, or not getting rinsed thoroughly, maybe hourly wasn't enough?

I cloth and love it. I had wish I had know more about it with my first two.

Yeah, now double it. I have twins, we use cloth, because we just don't have that much money nor do we want to be responsible for that much trash.

What fibers were you using? Some kids only do well with breathable natural fabrics so wool instead of PUL, cotton/hemp/bamboo instead of microfiber/poly, stuff like that.

cloth diapers gave mine a rash. Only thing that hasn't so far is pampers. It doesn't work for everyone.  Also, there was no diaper service in my area and working full time plus and then washing diapers is a pain in the ass.
