I've been cloth diapering my Cynthia since she was born (5 months ago) and am very pleased with my ImseVimse diapers (a Swedish brand). We chose cloth first and foremost for environmental reasons, and secondly for econmomic reasons. Now I'm wondering if the two extra loads of laundry a week (granted, not too hot, and not too much detergent) are worse than the carbon emitted by the garbage trucks taking away a bag of disposables. I live in Sweden, and we sort everything very well here. All kitchen garbage (into which disposables would go) is burned to create heat energy. Any ideas?
