What should I do with our diapers??
I am so sad, but we aren't cd'ing since we moved here. One cycle takes two and a half hours, health issues for all and a general feeling of being overwhelmed have made me feel like it's going to be too hard for me to cd here :(. So... We will be going to the states for Christmas and I'm considering selling my dipes then. We want another baby but if we are still here I don't think we will use them.
Any thoughts? Should I sell or keep for the what-if?

I guess it just depends.. If you sell them now you will have a little extra cash for some disposable diapers. If you really love your stash then maybe you should wait and see so you don't have to rebuild it. Or if you wanted to try different diapers, you can sell now and rebuild your stash later :)

It sounds like it would be much less stress on your family if you switched to disposables. Cloth diapers are just not the best fit for everyone. I know that is sad, giving it up, but you sound so overwhelmed right now. Don't look at it as a failure; think of it as a learning experience instead. I think in your situation, I would go ahead and sell them. If you ever choose to go back to cloth, you'll have much more knowledge and experience than you did this time around.

I started out CDing my DD but it didnt work out so I sold off everything and used disposables for a couple months. I went back to cloth and there were only a few items I wish I would have kept but nothing was super missed. I guess it just depends on what kind of diapers we're talking here. Your favorites should be kept if you feel like you may go back to CDing in the future. But most stuff is replaceable.

Re: What should I do with our diapers??
i agree with all pp's but id like to suggest handwashing. it really is not as daunting as it seems and diapers come out squeaky clean! of course, if you try and you just cant squeeze it in.. do what you need to.. but worth a try!
