I have 32 of them. I use them once in a while when we're at home. Laundry doesn't bother me at all as I just throw them in the washer first and quicklu prewash them, and than add the rest of my laundry. I hand them to dry.
What I don't like about them is the fack that they are bulky.

I will be, after the meconium is all gone. I started CDing my daughter at 3 months - it would have been sooner, but I couldn't handle the laundry stuff until my c-section healed. We use Bum Genius OS and Flips! I can't wait to buy more colors, but I'll likely wait until we find out the gender. I will say, even if we are having a boy, I am buying at least one or two of the dark purple diapers that they now have!

Yes!! I'm going try to, at least. It just makes so much more sense, financially. Still deciding on whether to use disposable or washable inserts. I guess I will try both.

I don't think the laundry is too bad...Plus the cost of NOT buying disposables is nice on top of it you're NEVER out of diapers

I CD'd DD from birth until potty trained, I will do it again with one but am venturing into making my own if you're interested in CDing there are a couple FB co-ops I belong to that have diapers for cheap!

I CD Marsi right now and I love it. I started hers when she was a couple of months old. I plan on CDing the next one from birth.

I'm cloth diapering my 20 month old already, so I don't think it'll be a big deal to CD a newborn too I'm just going to need some more diapers since I already need to do diaper laundry at least every other day, but I'll probably just go with prefolds and covers for the tiny one until s/he can fit the one size diapers

I want to try cloth diapering! I think it makes more sense. I'm thinking about waiting a little bit to start because of the meconium. I hear it's not so fun when cloth diapering. I will probably have some disposables for when we need to be gone from the house for a while though.

I would cloth diaper, but I don't think I want to invest the $$ in it when I can't do it once the baby goes to daycare. If I were a SAHM, I would definitely CD.

I can't wait to CD! I bought TONS of new CDs for my son RIGHT before he PTd at 23 months and was SO bummed! I almost sold them off and then got pg! Assuming I have another boy... My stash is SET at over 40.

I CD'd my boys. It is cheaper ONLY if you don't get addicted to buying diapers. Some of those prints are hard to resist!

I will be cloth diapering. I've cloth diapered all of mine. I just got my newborn stash back from a friend. I made newborn fitted diapers with my second (didn't know I needed newborn size for my first) and then loaned them out to so many people that they were ruined over 6 yrs of constant use. I made a new stash for my third and they have only been through 3 babies (my last 2 and a friends kid) and they are in great shape. If baby is a girl I'll make some new PUL covers in girly colors! The baby will be coming home from the hospital in cloth! My diapers are lined in microfleece and they don't stain from the meconium. The nurses went crazy over the tiny little diapers I made and pack into my hospital bag.

I want to add to my one size stash. I need to order more PUL, but will wait until I know the gender before ordering so I can buy cute colors. I don't like gender neutral. If baby is a girl then I have to decide if I care to use the perfectly good blue and green diapers I have or if I'll be OCD or have time to make all new diapers!

Cloth diapering isn't really any more laundry. I figure I can either wash diapers or wash clothes that got poop on them. I've never had a cloth diaper leak onto my babies clothing. I don't have to have a lot of clothing for my little ones and I don't have to deal with stains. Its not like I'm beating them on rocks! If you have a big enough stash, then you just do an extra load every few days. Its not a big deal for me. I'd be doing extra laundry either way!

The few times I used disposables when my kids were tiny, I used a PUL cover over the disposable to contain the mess and save their clothes. I was horrified that my explosive child would ruin my clothing while I carried her in a front pack carrier on vacation. She would have if I didn't have the covers.

Its faster to cloth diaper an infant as well. I have only had to worry about diaper rash with a child in disposables. Their skin stayed dry and healthy in cloth. No diaper rash creams needed.

We CD currently and will with this one as well. We won't start though until the baby is 12-13 pounds. We did Newborn sizes last time and my husband hated it. It was much easier once the baby is bigger.

Yep. CD my daughter from birth and will do the same with this one. We do covers and prefolds/flats in the beginning and move on to smalls and OS diapers after that. My daughter still fits small FB at almost 2 and 26lbs so I'll likely get a bunch more of those for this babe.
