is there any one part that you dont like? I said the same thing until I went to a cloth diaper workshop. Just wondering because alot of what I thought would be a pain really isnt.

Well, I would be worried about leakage--it just seems like stuff might seep out. Also, what happens if you are out somewhere, like a mall or park or something and there is a really messy diaper? How do you transport it without getting poop everywhere?

Never had a leak except morgan at night when I dont stuff his diaper right, never had a leak with Savannah besides ONE blowout that was my fault LOL. I didnt put the cover on tight enough because i changed her in the driver seat LOL. So would have had the issue in a disposible.

Wet bag! Its a PUL (the outer layer of a cloth diaper) bag that zips. Throw it in there and no smell or leak. Then unzip it and throw it in the wash if its just pee, rinse the diaper if its poop and throw it in the wash

I've heard that cloth actually is less likely to leak than 'sposies! Some people do use disposables when out and about to avoid needing a wet bag, but it seems to be personal preference and my friend who uses the wetbag thing certainly hasn't found it problematic.

My sister uses cloth diapers and seems to really like them. And my sister, being the crafty person that she is, makes her own covers.

I use a wetbag with both and havent used sposies since I got all Savannahs new cloth. Morgan leaks out of sposies at night regardless if I only use ONE insert he will to but if I use one microfiber one and one bamboo one he doesnt.

I'm ordering cloth diapers for the next one. I'm too cheap for this disposable crap.

I used cloth for my first and it saved so much money. The ones I had had velcro in the front so it was easy to make them fit for a long time. They also had the pocket for adding more material for absorbancy. Never had a leak issue and there are some really cute ones.

We plan too with this one. At night though and when we go out we will use disposables. More of a convient thing. But during the day here at home we will use cloth.

I prefer to cloth diaper, but we just haven't had the cash to get a big supply all at once When he was a wee guy, I never had any leakage issues, but he didn't wear them at night. And he loved his cloth diapers. We washed them constantly (we used an AI0). He only has one now, silly growing lad, and still loves it. Still no leakage issues.

I think I'd plan ahead should I ever had another kid (no plans on that anytime soon. I'll reevaluate my opinions in like 4 years) and stock up well beforehand.
