Just curious if anyone has considered, or is considering using cloth diapers when they have their bub?

I am a recent convert, and i REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY can't recommend it enough! I have been using cloth for about 3 or 4 weeks now, and already I've saved a lot of money in disposables! I have been through about one pack in 3 weeks, whereas I was going through 1 1/2-2 packs a WEEK!!!! If you're consdering it, or even vaguely thinking about it, I fully suggest checking out the cloth diapering board! Everyone there is really friendly, and helped me out a lot!!!

there are heaps of different 'systems' of cloth diapering, and omg you can get some very styley diapers!!!! LOL. You can get diapers that fit right from newborn-2 or 3 years old, so although it can be a bit pricey to start off, it definately saves money in the long run!

anyway, here is the link to the CD/cloth diapering board.... check it out!

(cloth diapers are my new addiction, I can't stop buying them!)

I've been thinking about it.. considering the Bum Genius 2.0 One Size diaps. Or Fuzzibuns... I don't know. I know I won't even try it until after the cord falls off.

I've looked over the cloth diapering board a little.. I'll have to maybe spend a little more time there

Fair enough re: the umbilical cord stump falling off... I was a bit apprehensive to start off with, but now i love them.... LOL just gotta remember to have nappy liners so that when they poo, you have to handle it as little as possible

ok well here is my question...i have read on the cloth diapering board how to clean them but I still don't get it????

How in the world do you clean the diapers? To me it just seems like it would get messy and gross but maybe I am missing something. If I am please do tell haha!

To me it seems like you put them in your washing machine but umm yeah I don't know how to put this but I don't want all that baby poop in my washer...I know its a big money saver and would love to maybe get into it. Those cloth diapers are just too darn cute! But please explain the washing to me!

I don't understand all the lingo on the cloth diaper board, so a dumbed down version would be great!

Here are a couple of websites that I found helpful regarding cloth diaps:

Washing Fuzzibuns
Basic washing instructions, I think this would also apply to any other pocket diap as far as washing instructions.

Detergent Choices
This site gives some good and bad detergents to use.

Pocket Diapers
General information on pocket diaps (this is what I will be using if I cloth diaper!)

Cloth Diaper Reviews on DiaperPin.com
Lots of reviews of different types of cloth diapers.

ETA: LoveMyGabalicious, what type of diaps do you use?

I really wanted to cloth diaper but DH said no since he will be with the baby most of the day. Maybe I can still talk him in to it.

I used cloth with my first and it was AMAZING - rather than using liners though, I use a softer form of J Cloth - less expensive and disposable.

Myself I prefer folding my own that way I don't have to worry about the "stump" of the umbilical cord as they are completely adjustable!

As for washing I use a simple meathod.

1. Rince nappy in the toilet
2. Put nappy in a diaper pail already filled with Borax and Detergent and water
3. Once / twice per day ring out nappy and wash

Really it's no different than the first time they decide to puke on their bed in the middle of the night.

If you are still apprehensive there are also diaper services that literally work like this.

1. Remove nappy
2. Place in Service's pail
3. Wait for delivery of new nappies LOL

I definitely love using cloth, much better for the environment, and both my kids had reactions to all disposables
