I went to the store with a friend and she asked me arent you going to get diapers? I said no I use cloth, she replied oh yeah you breastfeed, I should have known you use cloth. Huh?? So is it just a hand in hand thing to Bfeed & cloth diaper?

I started cloth diapering my first at age one after I got tired of diaper rashes and tired of throwing my money away! He was formula fed! I'm pretty main stream about most things but I breast feed because its best and I'm cheap and lazy! I cloth diaper because I have two kids in diapers and its saves us a ton of money to do cloth.

I wanted to so bad, but dragging dirty cloth diapers to the laundry mat all the time just wasn't something we were able to do. Next baby I will try my best to, I love the idea of cloth!

I bought one box of sposies for my in laws to help with the transition. They will buy more when they go out and about with her and use cloth the rest of the time. Just like bfing cloth isn't an all or nothing thing! We also used sposies on our week long camping trip. (We had some boxes from our baby shower).

Quoting yikesitsmindy:

I would if i were a sahm, but I can't ask my mom to deal with cloth diapers.

 I use will be using cloth diapers as soon as Nellie is big enough and I use up all our diapers from the baby shower.

Cloth diapering actually saves me laundry and keeps baby's clothes nicer. When he was in disposables, he was pooping up everything! Everything stays contained in cloth. :). Disposables are definitely easier though. I used them with my other two kids.

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:

Yeah, I couldn't imagine doing all that laundry.  And with all the laundry I'd be doing, not sure it would help the environment.  I get environmentally friendly ones, and I flush the turds I can flush.  I'd also babysat a few babies who used cloth diapers, and I just hated the experience.  Their clothing ALWAYS got wet.  So I'd have to wash their diapers, their clothing, and whatever they happened to be siting on.  3 different brands, 3 different messy wet babies.  Though, none of them ever got a diaper rash.

Crunchy just means "natural."  Like EBF, cloth diapers, baby wearing, only ever using homeopathic things, only feeding the baby organic foods when they start solids, etc.  It can mean different things to different people, but those are ones I see often.

Quoting PolishMamma2:

Its funny I dont even know what "crunchy" means, I EBF because its a no brainer, but I use cloth because I dont see myself throwing $$$ away. Not that I dont care about the enviroment, I just dont see how that would make that much of a diff.

Quoting Mrs.Kubalabuku:

No, I didn't use cloth diapers.  lol

Are you "crunchy" in a lot of ways?  Maybe she's just getting that impression?

I use cloth for ds2 but when I was a ftm and breastfeeding with ds1 I used sposies. For me it was too much figuring everything out AND washing diapers. I just wasn't ready for all that. :)
