I think we tried this one a very long time ago...
I've been doing tons of research and we've decided to switch to cloth diapering. I wish I had looked into it more before I had my daughter, but I was so worried about being able to breastfeed, taking care of a newborn, etc. that cloth diapering seemed overwhelming. I also was afraid of touching poo which is not a problem anymore since I've found my daughter covered in poo after a few naps (and BTW you don't ever have to touch poo while CD). The initial start up cost is a little scary. Depending on what type you get and the accessories you buy it can be around $500-600. But the amount you save is astounding. I'm talking thousands of dollars especially if you use them for multiple kids. Personally, I also feel better not having so much trash. We already recycle everything we can and I think diapers account for 60% of what we throw out so CD will be a huge help.
Thoughts about cloth diapering?
