I used both. I think they each have credit. If we went out It was disposable but at home my babies, esp number 4 hung out in cloth, or even bare bummed sometimes. IT IS NOT THAT HARD.
A few tips. Use liners made out of polar fleece. Cut them to fit and put them in nappy. They will wick the moisture away from baby's bum. The poop, especially baby poop rinses right off, or you can shake into the toilet. They don't stain and they dry quickly.
Good overpants are awesome. You don't even need pins. Most velcro up or are domed.
I just don't know why people come in here all panicked because they are running out of nappys. If you have 12cloth nappys and a few over pants you can tide over to next pay.
If you don't want to cloth full time, you can at least have the basics for when you run out of cloth.
Do you used cloth or disposable? Why or why not?
