When I started cd a little over a year age I lived in a small town and I didn't know one person in that town that cd. I was a complete weirdo there! Six months ago we moved to a bigger town that is about 20 minutes away from a small city. They are much more common here. I've met 4 or five people here that have cd. There are also cd stores in the city.
I was blessed to grow up as a part of a large homeschool group and many of my friends from growing up cd, I just don't live close to them. If you count all those people, I know probably 20-30 people who cd irl.

My iDevices are out to get me. Please excuse mistakes.

Re: How mainstream is cloth in your area?

Not at all mainstream, but growing. Our population is about 25,000 if you count both towns that are kind of mushed together. There isn't a store that sells cloth diapers for a couple hundred miles, but there is a big hand me down stash that circulates throughout the homeschool co op, and a few friends have started using my system.

Re: How mainstream is cloth in your area?

We have one B&M store in our town and next week when the last mom's order comes in our church will be 100% CDed. The population in our city is around 132,929. I have have friends from the west coast to KY and TN and I'd say the majority of them CDs or have CDed or have at least thought about it.

Re: How mainstream is cloth in your area?

I live 20 miles south of the Twin Cities (MPLS/St.Paul) and this is hard to say. I have a lot of family members that use cloth (without my influence) and most of my friends with babies cloth diaper, but I'm not sure if it's who I surround myself that makes me think cloth is pretty popular, or if it actually is pretty popular. It's for sure not a weird or hippie thing here at all. I often see fluffy bums when out and about. We have a MN cloth diapering moms page and there are over 300 members. However, I've answered this question on here before as, yes, very popular and others have said the opposite so I'm really not sure. We have one B&M dedicated store, but it's on the very north end of the cities, almost an hour from me. There are a few other stores around the area that carry a small selection, but really not much for B&M stores. I think a B&M store would be great in my area (oh how I wish I could open one...). I'd know there's a lot of Minnesota moms on here and I'd love to hear their opinion.

It is actually fairly common here! We have 3 brick and mortar stores, a service and a local swap group that has 462 members on facebook!

Re: How mainstream is cloth in your area?

I think it's fairly common here amongst certain groups. Although I do think it's like Kabuki24 said that I tend to surround myself with like minded people so maybe my perception is skewed. I do see kids fairly often out in cloth and amber. Lots of baby wearers etc. Have at least 4 local B&M shops and I know personally lots of families that use cloth. I had a mom at my 6 year old's school tell me she liked DD's longies last year so I think it must be more common than other areas in the city.

I've heard cloth is pretty popular in Chicago area. I sure get a lot of orders from that area.

ETA: I had to look this up and I think I have you all beat for "small town"
As of the 2010 census, the town we live in had a population of 1,412. The town our business is in had a population of 3,946 at the 2010 census.
I live in a "village " in Michigan. I know if ithica. We live 20 minutes from MSU and there's a diaper store about 30 min from us. If I wasnt in a baby wearing group I would not know any cd mamas.
