    Default cloth diapers

    I see that a lot of Mommies here use cloth diapers...I was just curious why you switched or chose them? What are the benefits/down side of using them? What brands are best?

    There is a CD forum. If you go to user CP at your top left & go down to group memberships you can join. I planned to CD from the start to avoid putting those chemicals against my childs skin. They also have less poo leaks & they are a million times cuter!! There are so many brands & what works best for you depends on the baby. I love Thirsties & Happy Heiny's.

    Good for the environment, baby & pocketbook (if you don't buy more than you need). We love our FuzziBunz!!

    Cloth diapers = less waste in the landfills, less irritation on babies skin & less money spent! What more could you want? The idea of spending 20-30$ dollars a week on disposables to just throw away seemed ridiculous to me.

    My mom alway used cloth on us (there are 7 of us) so it was never a question that I would use them on my kids. They are much better for baby and environment and your budget. They hold in poo better too, as was previously stated.

    I love my prefolds and Happy Heinys!

    They have come along way since my mom CD and all these ladies love of them tempted me. I tried prefolds and covers and just started using bumGenius 3.0 and I am in love with my bG. It's really a personal choice.
