Is cloth diapering hard?

Nice post over on Everything Cloth about debunking the myths behind how difficult it is to use cloth diapers. At Abby’s Lane I believe we’ve also covered many, many concerns on our Cloth Diapering 101 page.

I started cloth diapering when my oldest was almost 2. Other mothers from my mothers group were using cloth. I was shocked. But I started using them, and really loved them (and that’s also how I discovered Abby’s Lane!). My baby potty trained quickly, but luckily number 2 had arrived, and she used 100% cloth, exclusively, day, night, and out and about until she toilet trained.

Because of a variety of influences I ended up going back to disposables for baby number three.

By baby number four, I am down to one in diapers, and I am back in cloth. Because here’s the thing- diapers are freaking EXPENSIVE. My baby is turning 2 in about 6 weeks and I would venture to say that he is nowhere near toilet training (my oldest girls trained by 2. My third, rarely in cloth, didn’t toilet train until close to 3.5. Coincidence? I am not so sure). Anyway, baby is big, thus the diaper size is big, thus the quantity of diapers/package is small. And, since money doesn’t grow on trees (more’s the pity) he is back in cloth. I had actually forgotten how easy it really is, how cute they really are, and my only regret is that I didn’t put him in cloth much earlier into his babyhood.

What myths would you like to bust about cloth diapering? Is it the sheer wonder at the fact that our ancestors would have CHEERED at the idea of not washing diapers? Is it the thought of one more chore? Or do people just not even KNOW about the options available?
