Who plans on using cloths diapers?

I will most likely use disposable diapers. I have used them with both of my other babies and for us they just work better. I work full time so having to wash and take care of cloth diapers just doesn't work for me. But I think the cloth diapers are so cute and wish I had the time to do it.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I want to attempt cloth diapers. To begin with, I will start with both and see what works for us.

I would love to use cloth diapers, but I too work full time and barely manage the laundry now. I have though about buying some for at my mom's house (she watches my children for me) just to save on some of the cost. They are so darling and have come a long way since we were kids.

We will be using disposable. I looked into cloth, I'm not so sure how I feel about it. Dh is completely against it.

As a full-time working mom, I cannot imagine finding a moment to scrub poop and launder them. BUT, I find them adorable and think they probably do save money (if you have an efficient washer and buy the right kinds/right sizes)

I think they are adorable but dh is against it. And that's not a fight worth fighting.

Thank you so much AlexAiden Mommy for my beautiful siggy!

I've used them and there are definitely benefits but I prefer disposables for convenience. I plan to use disposables with this baby unless i find reason to dig the cloth diapers out of storage.

We used disposables for DS and good lord, we went through a lot. I'm going to see how cloth diapering goes for us this go 'round. DH is totally with me on the idea. I don't work so the extra laundry is no biggie for me. If we decide cloth diapering isn't for us then it isn't the end of the world.

Also, I have a sewing machine and I plan to learn how to sew my own cloth diapers. I have a few patterns I'm going to try out. We'll see how well that goes.

Not us. Even if we didn't find the idea kinda icky, we do all of our laundry at the laundry mat, and sometimes we don't get there quite as soon as we'd like.

I would love to cloth diaper. I've looked into but husband is not on board. He just can't imagine washing his clothes in the same machine as poopy/pee diapers. He's not really the kind to sit and watch a video on YouTube about it either. If I can find a source of diapers I might buy a few to try here and there, just for fun. If I like it, who knows! So I guess for now it's a "leave it".

Not us, either. I am sorta on the fence about it, but DH is totally anti cloth diapers. I don't like the idea of scraping poop off either lol. I'd try it if someone happened to give me a couple, but otherwise, no.

I am going to use disposable diapers. I don't have the time or patience to clean diapers. I am going to have my hands full with a five year old and a newborn at the same time.

I just want to put this out there for those who are thinking of using cloth diapers, my friend used cloth diapers with her kids and actually used a cloth diapering service. They would give her clean diapers and take away the dirty ones.

We'll be cloth diapering I love the idea and my SO is completely on board. I've gone mildly hippie recently so this is only a natural progression for me. Plus, anything that saves money is a bonus in my book.

Disposable. I am a full on recycling, reusable, organic loving mom but cloth diapers did not work for us the first time around.

I'm skipping it this time and contributing to the landfills. I am such a bad hippie.
