I have a quick questions to all my moms out there. We are considering the cloth diaper for our little one (not the dish towel and safety pin ones). I was wondering if any of you have ever tried cloth diapers, and perhaps I could get some advice? These diapers have come a long way from the dish towel days... They make them look just like disposables, and have inserts that you remove and flush for the numero doses. They are (in the long run) more affordable than disposables and are better for not only babies, but the planet. Soooooo, I'm not a tree hugging hemp wearing lover of nature necessarily, but when I hear that you can get all set up with these cloth diapers for about $700 and use them for multiple kids as opposed to spending $2000 PER CHILD on diapers, I thought What the hay? I'll look into this.
So... if you have used them, which brands do you recommend and what features are especially important?
