I buy so many, it's really sick. But we are planning on having 2 more kids, so I'll definitely get good use out of them, plus a friend of mine wants them if she has a kid before I do. They are so worth every penny.

I plan on cloth diapering mine. I have bum genius all in one's and sunny baby pockets. not sure which one I will like better but the pocket ones are so adorable with the prints! the fabric is also much softer than disposables!

There's lots of Ways to make them. U can get a pattern knline or make your own pattern to suit your needs. You can use snaps or Velcro. You can use fleece wool or pul fabric. There's many choices it just depends on what you wanna do.

a lot of people were giving me the same response as op about using cloth. they looked at me like I'd sprouted more heads. most people still have the old cloth that our grannys used in mind when we say cloth diapers...

Really, it's super easy! It's kinda gross at first with the poop, but really you get used to it. It's actually really nice, and the money you save you can use on other things for the family and kids.

Idk if they'll use them for everyone. I just asked for my kid. I bought special preemie dipes to use and they were a little apprehensive but I explained them and they thjnk it's awesome. Maybe I'll get them hooked :)
