What do you like about cloth diapering?

1. Saving money. Even with trying different diapers and needing to change things up we still save money. I dont feel bad when i buy a few too many, atleast i didnt buy trash. And i've been able to give some away to help other people.
2. The cuteness of the diapers, and the variety of options. I love trying new things.
3. Never having to worry about diapers. Tight month? Diapers are covered. No runs to the store with all 3 kids searching for the two brands my middle kid can wear!
4. Less blowouts, and i dont find crystals on my baby in the morning.
5. Emergency prepardness. In an emergency our stash of flats would be invaluable. And even if we're low on on flats I know How to use a t-shirt, towel, etc.

Share yours!!!

I like I think bought mine after buying & selling 500 or less on all that will last my 2 youngest kids.... no what do I do I'm down to 1 sposie or worry on what to do if kid needs next size in middle of pack. One blowout in yr & a half. Goes with like all most colors with things we have as in summer we just go in shirts. No sagging dipes.

In no particular order:
*Cost savings
*Environmental impact
*CUTE BUM!
*My baby's health
*Being a part of a cool, underground diapering community
*Getting to tell people all about it and how it's not that hard!

Re: What do you like about cloth diapering?

Every time I change a CD I think about the disposable that is not going in a landfill and the money I am saving! The cute fluffy bum is just the icing on the cake!

No running to the store at random times for more diapers. Cute bottoms. Feel better about not wasting money each day.

All of the above.

When I changed a sposie on my other kids I would eyeball the package to see how soon we would have to get more.

When I change a cloth diaper I have a feeling of satisfaction. I feel like whatever mistakes I make as a parent at least I managed to get this right.

We started for health reason and wanting to save the environment one diaper at a time. We stayed because it's easy and at least no more $$ than disposables. They also smell less (in my opinion) and way cuter.

As a chemistry teacher, I know how bad the chemicals in disposables are. Not for my baby! They are cute, they are cheaper, and I like convincing others around me to not be afraid to try cloth.
