Cloth diapers? Like or dislike? My mom is sending us money for diapers but i think i should spend it on cloth so i dont have to spend money on disposables. How many is good number? I alsowant to use them for future children.

I just ordered 6 more Alvas... I only used Econobum with Bug so anything is a step up from that, haha! But really I've heard wonderful things about Alvas, and their site is free shipping. I got 5 solid colors and 1 minky print for $29 & free shipping :) with 2 inserts each!

LO is 14 months. They are so cute. If you buy like ten for 50.99 do you get to pick which ones?

The only bad thing about alva... is that you keep ordering more cause they look so f**king cute lol :D
I got 8 at first, which pretty much meant I washed every day (and disposable during the night, cause he pees through EVERYTHING). Now I have about .... 20?:? I wash about every other day / three days now.

I was looking at them a friend of mine ordered some one size for her newborn and she said the leaked nonstop so she went back to disposables until he gets bigger. I work full time and go to school full time now though so I don't have time to wash them all the time :( I really wanted to try cloth though.

I wash every other day, but OS generally doesn't fit well until around 9-10lbs in my experience

We didn't really start using them untill DS was out of his "explosive breastfeeding poops" so he has like 2 poops a day, the rest pretty much is pee and is not much. He seems to save his pee for the night lol.

I got 1 day off this week and I have to leave an hour before I have to be at work because my job is 40 minutes away (where my parent's live). So I am losing 10 hours out of every day I work which this week was 5 days I don't even have time to wash my own clothes. I send laundry soap with DD so my parents can wash some clothes for her while she is there. I do all of my laundry on my day off.
