Traveling with cloth diapers

I have to admit I was a little hesitant about it but still couldn't leave my cloth dipes at home. We are on vacation 21 hours from home. We will be gone a total of two weeks. It's not nearly as hard as I thought. I packed my entire stash except for some prefolds. We have had access to washing machines and dryers so that definitely helped out! I brought my big diaper pail size wetbag to store dirty ones in. We even packed all of our cloth wipes lol.

Have you traveled with cloth?

I brought some for the car ride so I'm not worrying about leakage in the seat

My sons allergic to disposibles so we always use cloth on trips. We took 6 days moving across country from Arizona to Maryland and still only used cloth. We just found laundrymats.

I was thinking about this last night. Planning to fly from Sydney to Indiana when baby is about 3 months old. That trip takes nearly 24 hours, and I'm definitely going to use cloth on the way. I'm thinking prefolds with boosters and wool covers.

I'm lazy. I use hybrid diapers on trips. Although if I were gone for that long and had access to a washer, I'd use full cloth too.

I really didn't even want to. It's the first time she's been in sposies since age was born. I'm proud of myself for hardly using them. I've used them at night since we are sleeping in family members beds but thats it

Yeah that's why I knew we could it. Or at least most of the time. I knew we were staying near family or with them. I upped my diaper stash before leaving also.

We have and it was pretty easy, just did laundry once or twice while we were gone.

I did use hybrid diapers in the car for convenience though.
