I cloth diapered DS from 2 weeks on (I was waiting for his cord to fall off and I didn't have many back then since I was just starting out).
I have an entire stash for the new baby and intend to cloth diaper him from birth.
I love cloth diapers and after almost 2.5 years of doing it the idea of doing anything is a foreign concept to me!

I'm going to give it a try this time around. We'll see how it goes. I tried it once before and had problems with rashes, but it was a long time ago so hoping it'll go better this time.

I do cloth diaper and started when my son was five months old. I love it and plan to do it with future babies from two weeks or so on (don't want to do meconium with cloth).

I am getting the diaper liners that are disposable. I am hoping that helps with that.

We cloth diaper! I didn't start until my older DD was 6 wks, and then it was part time for a while since I didn't have enough for full time. This time Tesla was in the NICU for a few days, and then she was smaller than expected, so again, we are only part-time until I get a few more diapers and she grows a bit. I love it, though! I'll be glad when I can go full-time again!

Thuya was CD'd right from birth. We don't do it full time but majority of the time. I will be CD'ing the new babe as well.

We cloth diaper and I usually start after baby is a week old. Since I am recovering for a few days and DH is taking care of all the kids I didn't want him to worry about diaper laundry on top of everything else.

We cloth diaper here as well. Lily was in a mix of disposable and cloth her first few weeks and then fully into cloth around 1 month. DH prefers disposables in the beginning since they're wetting them/pooping so much and he was the main diaper changer the first month.

This time I think we'll be doing the same thing for the first month. We already bought a case of disposables, but I will be doing cloth full-time after we run out of those. I prefer cloth all they way, but DH wanted disposables again for the meconium and frequent changing in the beginning.

Yup, we cloth diaper. And will do so from the start. I got some new Happy Heinys once size, Fuzzi Bunz pockets, and Gro Baby one size. I'm going to get some more pockets soon.

We CD'd M from 8 weeks and will CD from the start with the newbie. I got a dozen nb/small Kissaluv Contours for Christmas, and I've been working on knitting covers, longies, and shorties in GN colors. I should probably sew a few more diapers but I'll likely end up buying them or trading with someone for them instead.

I'm not sure yet. We used disposable with DS. But they are so expensive. My only concern about cloth diapers is: how hard would it be to keep them clean?

I cloth diaper...most of the time.

We didn't do it right from birth though, we waited until the umbilical cord stump fell off (our cloths were too big and were riding up and covering up the stump).

We also don't cloth at night, we use disposables Hey, if it means I get 4 hours of sleep instead of 2...
