We have cloth diapered exclusively since before DS3 was born. We actually have ZERO disposable diapers. Thankfully, our diaper stash is large enough that we can go two full days before we have to wash the diapers.
We chose to cloth diaper for a variety of reasons. First, in the long run, it’s MUCH less expensive to cloth diaper, especially if you save them for when you have more babies. Second, I hate the thought of those diaper chemicals being in contact with my baby doing who knows what kind of damage to their delicate system. Third, I hate the thought of those disposable diapers piling up in a landfill. Fourth, it’s actually easier to run a load of diapers in the washer and dryer than to run out to the store to buy more diapers when you are running dangerously low 🙂
My favorite diapers are Fuzzi Bunz pocket diapers. I love the snaps (and hate velcro) and I love that you can stuff them lightly or heavily (for night time). I almost never put the diapers in the dryer — only the inserts if we are in a hurry to have clean diapers. Otherwise, they all go on the clothesline to dry.
I’d love to hear from you. What are your favorite cloth diapers?
