is cloth diapering popular?
I was just woundering if cloth diapering is popular where you live?

Before my DD ( our 4th child) had a really bad reaction to all disposables I was too scared to try cloth. Scared to put the money out to try something I was sure I wasn't going to like only to have everyone say "i told you so"

I had never even seen a cloth diaper let alone know anyone who had used them.
Had no idea wet bags existed.

This time I was forced to try and had the benefit of a newborn rental program to try.

Now that I have tried them I am borderline obsessed.:blush:

I only wish I had tried with my other kids. Im actually sad I will only get to CD one baby.

Just wondering If this is typical.

It isn't, unfortunately. I've only met one family here that CD's, and it was in passing at the Pediatrician.

I have run across a few family at daycare and one of my cousin's cloth diapered. She's the one who actually introduced me to this site! I didn't have much information before starting at all and the closest store that sells cd supplies is 2 hours away. But, I do my best to spread the word :)

Not at all :( I couldn't even tell you where the closest CD Store is nearby. I got into it after seeing a few things online and deciding to give it a try. My closest friend who CD's her son is 3.5 hours away....

I only know of 2 other people in my town that cd. I know how you feel about the obsession, and sadness that you will only cd one baby. I only started with my dd when she was a little older and she is my last.

I would say so. There are two CD stores near me, one a 5 minute walk, the other a 5 minute drive. There also seem to be a good number of people destashing on Kijiji. I know a couple people near me who are CDing.

I know of exactly one other mom who cloth diapers her kid IRL. Most people I know think I'm insane for considering it, and I've never seen another LO at the park or elsewhere with a recognisable cloth butt. I'm sure it's more popular in some areas than others, but it's very very far from mainstream still.

I think CDing is more popular in some areas than others. It is pretty popular around me but that probably because of availability of stores. But even so, I still find the best deals online shopping.

I am so spoiled where we live. There are at least 5 stores within 1 1/2 hours of us. Many hold classes, playgroups and meetings. We homeschool and within are very large co-op almost everyone uses cloth. If you don't use cloth when joining typically you convert quickly.

It's fairly popular here. I know a lot of people who use cloth. We do have a fairly large and well connected group of "crunchy" people here though.
