Cool Would you ever...

My MIL is in town for the birth of my baby & I showed her my CD stash. She used flats for many years but said by the 8th kid, she just switched to all disposables (LOL! I think I would, too!!). Otherwise, she liked cloth for her babies & told me a few of the many alternate uses for flats (she's awesome!! She's been doing my dishes & helping me clean, too!).

Do you think you would ever cloth diaper 8 kids (with 2-3 years between each kid)?

Haha. This. Definitely.

I have several friends with 6+ kiddos who all CD and they all do it with prefolds and pull-on covers (I think the Gerber ones, but can't remember for sure).

Sure. If I had 8 kids I would NOT have enough time to hang out on Diaperswappers, which is where I see the new stuff that I want to buy in the first place... so I'd be happy with a boring stash.

Re: Would you ever...

Yes I think so. At this point with only 3 kids 2-3 years apart it's become very easy to do. DS1 was CD from a year on and DD and DS2 from birth. I know exactly how many and what kind we need for me to not become burned out and stressed. The biggest reason being that they are more reliable. When I hear that familiar sound I'm not worried that the poop shot up the baby's back. I'd be cursing to the high heavens if I had 5-6 little ones running around and I had to clean up as many blowouts as I did when my oldest was in sposies.

Definitely! I enjoy it and honestly I would hate to throw away so much money in disposables even if we were financially able to have 8 kids. I would probably take a month off here and there and use disposables because I'm sure I would get burnt out every now and then.
