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 use cloth now, but used sposies with my 2 older kids, and I breastfed all 3 :) I know a lot of nursing moms, and a handful of cloth diapering moms. . . .

I love Cloth Diapering!

We've been using sposies lately but thats because we are in a place temporarily without our washing machine/dryer. But will be switching to cloth again shortly and just washing them in the tub.

 I do, I love cloth, I wouldn't ever go back but I breastfed my first and used sposies with her and I know a lot of women who breastfeed and use don't use cloth.

I couldn't answer the poll because I just started her cloth diapers yesterday, they well only be used with me and I'm not sure if I'll keep on doing it. So mine would be both. But I didn't think most bf moms cloth, but I could see most cloth mommas breast feeding though idk I might be wrong.

This. I wanted to do cloth because if saving money and the environment but my husband (very correctly) pointed out how much our laundry already gets backed up with two kids and both of us working full time...


Quoting justone_jen:

I am thinking about cloth diapering, but up to this point, I haven't.



I think people associate breastfeeding with women who are more natural minded. And many natural minded women cloth diaper. I'm not saying it's a good assumption, but I get it.

We cloth. Before Ds was born I figured if I couldn't nurse I could at least cloth diaper. But really DS has a reaction to disposables so I kind of have to cloth.

We do it most but not all of the time (day trips, vacations, travel, etc, we don't, or when Ds is sick w/yucky poops we don't).

I stay home and can't keep up with the laundry for 5 people as it is!

For us, with the system I could get my husband to agree to it was only going to save us like $100 over 3 years. And since this was our last baby, it wasn't worth it- plus the laundry!
