Cloth diaper's worth it?

DH and I are thinking of cloth diper's this time around and we would like to hear from mommy's that have used them and the throw away kind and ask if cloth diaper's are worth it. If so where can we find some we would like to stock up now

 I used cloth diapers with my first 2 kids, and I have been cloth diapering my 3rd since birth (he will be 2 at the end of June)...I love cloth diapering, I will be cloth diapering my new baby as well, she's due in 13 days :) I use flip covers with prefolds inside...I have a couple oher types of cloth and this method is by far my favorite...cost effective and truly addicting...I actually love doing diaper laundry, makes me so happy to see all the clean diapers come out of the laundry lol

 Ohhh ok...yea, I did the disposible kinds with my son, this time moneys a little tight so I was looking into the clothe ones...Thanks!

Quoting brittany208:

 Nope. If you use prefolds (think the old fashioned cloth square), then you put a waterproof cover over it. Or you can buy a kind called "all in one" where the diaper is absorbant inside and the outside is the waterproof cover all sewn together. (there are other kinds of diapers, but that's the simple explanation).

 

Quoting Lili0509:

 Hey everyone, so quick question, do cloth diapers soak through?? Like ok, baby pees while we're headed somewhere, he's in the car seat, would it not soak through?

Thanks for the reply!

They leak much less than disposibles in my experience

 check out the cuties with cloth booties group on here. they have an excellent FAQ sticky post that will tell you all the basic info you need to know to get started. It also includes an excellent breakdown of costs. Cloth costs a little more upfront in start up costs, but it can be FAR cheaper in the long run. It depends what kind of diapers you buy and how many, though. A lot of the ladies in that group probably havent saved money because they are so addicted to cute diapers, they buy waaaay more than they need :) but you definitely can do it for way cheaper.

I LOVE cloth! Dd was in sposies and every week we were buying a pack of diapers, using our last $20 and trying to stretch everything out until payday. With ds, I got 6 flip covers and 18 inserts from my baby shower, got 4 fuzzi buns lg pocket diapers with an overnight insert at a consignment shop while trading in some of dd's clothes. Mil buys a pack here and there but we haven't bought any in 16 months and it's so nice!!! We use that $20 for good or gas instead! I am washing everyday, 10 is NOT enough to go any longer. But now I'm in the process of making some. It's a LOT cheaper in the long run.
Mine did have a lingering ammonia smell until I gave them a cold rinse, hot wash with detergent then another hot wash with vinegar and a cold rinse, they smell brand new!

I've been using 6 FLIP covers, 18 inserts since ds was born 16 months ago and LOVE how the white inserts go in black/dark brown and come out white as new EVERY TIME!!!

We're doing cloth.

I think we've spent around $250 and basically have a complete stash of both newborn and one-size.

Super excited for this baby to pop out so I can get his butt into some cute fluff!

I find them worth it, and I even hate doing laundry. I always used to have a hard time doing it, but now I seem to keep up on all of our laundry better. Lol.
