I do. I use the flat unfolded ones that go with plastic covers. (The really cheap old-fashioned kind!) I've been using them since my son was about one month old and it's not as hard as I thought it was going to be. For us it's basically two extra loads of laundry a week. (And who isn't doing laundry all the time with a seven month old anyway?!)

I just rinse poopy diapers in the toilet. Sometime it's a little more work. But it's not like you spend that much more time on cloth diapers than disposable. I still use disposable when we leave the house or when hubby will be changing diapers

Yep, I have been since my son was 6 months old. He has fewer rashes and it's better on the environment.

I REALLY wanted to before my daughter was born, and I even found a cheap ($400) package that included about 3 dozen "one size fits all" diapers, plus liners, covers and wipes. We got enough money from gifts to cover it, but my husband decided that he didn't want to get them, because "cloth diapers are too much work" Why should he care? It'd be me doing all the laundry anyway. I was planning on still using disposable whenever we leave the house. I was given a bag of the type that you have to fold and pin, but I only use those on occasion, and at home only.
How is using cloth going for you? Any good tips on how to wash poop out of clothes?
