I might. This is my first and my dad wants to help during the first week or so, so it might help him learn in the hospital. I was afraid of laundry because I live about an hr from the hospital. But if they use so few, it might be worth it.

Sent from my Inspire. Hope everything makes sense!

We're using Honest diapers until the cord falls off. Joey's stump didn't dry up well and was super stinky because the cloth was always getting on it, even with the snap down by the cord and all of that.

Re: Did you pack cloth diapers for the hospital?

I'm in the other category. I cloth diapered my last two from the beginning, but they were homebirths. I'm planning a hospital birth for this baby, and it will be the first time taking cloth to the hospital, Lord willing.

I just didn't want to have to go home with a baby and a ton of dirty diapers in tow. I used sposies that the hospital provided.

I packed my cloth because I was so excited to try the dipes out! However, I didn't get to use them. I ended up having a c-section and having complications so the sposies worked until we came home.

I could barely get the muconium off the baby, let alone a piece of cloth. We also use diapers that aren't really cord stump friendly, so we use disposable until the cord falls off.

I never took any as I have never needed to. The local hospital provides flats and pins. If you want to use disposables you have to bring your own.

I did, but the freebies proved irresistible. But we switched once our daughter's cord fell off.
