Yeah, don't have boots lol. The only "natural" diapers we have here are 7th generation, and you have to go to specialty stores to get them. I have heard that they are the least comfortable for baby and can be scratchy. We also have Earth's Best, but I have heard nothing about them. Naty and Bambo are not sold here.

Naty trainers (on Amazon) are 80 cents per diaper. Huggies slip on diapers are 34 cents (I can get them for 32 if I order like Naty). I can't afford more than double the price. Huggies slip ons are actually more expensive than regular huggies, but DD LOVES stepping into things (diapers, pants, etc) and can't undo them (she was undoing her babyganics diapers).

When we use disposables for travelling we use 7th Generation Free and Clear diapers. I don't think they are scratchy at all and my LO seems quite comfy in them. We get them off Amazon for about 30 cents a diaper with free 2 day shipping.:

I may try them next time I buy, I can get them for reasonably more (less than 40 cents, which is manageable). I just wonder if their pull on is as absorbent (or workably so) as a diaper, you know? Like the pull on diapers are PULL ON DIAPERS, not training pants, some training pants are just as absorbent as diapers, some are not. We aren't training her yet, but regular tab diapers just fall off her or she pulls off one side constantly, and I put her in a lot of dresses not onesies. I don't want to change her whole wardrobe.

And maybe, when things have calmed down, I may return to a (paired down) cloth stash. I'm spoiled on cloth, they do stay on so much better.

I find the reviews for 7th Generation are very polarized, people either love them or hate them, but you won't know which side you fall on until you try them!

The only thing I don't like about them is they use a dye to make the diapers look a 'natural' brownish colour. The dye is clay based so it isn't a harmful dye, but I think it is a bit ridiculous. But people buy into the 'natural' look so I guess the dye helps them sell diapers. It's their way of really highlighting that they don't use bleached fibres in their diapers.

Not a crunchy mom failure...I started cloth at ten months with my now three year old i managed a few months then sold my WHOLE stash aaaaand paid for my wedding cake with the funds fast forward to june last year and thought miss my cloth so bought them all again, this time he stayed in them till he randomly decided to potty train and I swear the cloth helped because he knew when he was wet! Im due baby no 2 in september (fall?) and I have a changing table with a drawer...whats the drawer stuffed with...yup sposies, ive never cloth bummed a newborn so i have my backup plan, it does get tiresome and sometimes a break is welcomed and nope I dont go for eco disposables either,..I go for cheap disposable as theyre going in the bin anyway!

I started cloth with Dd1 when she was 7 months old. It was easy. So I bought some newborn ones for Dd2 until she was big enough to wear her older sisters. I religiously used them until Dd2 was sick with a virus and has has terrible diarrhea for the last 2 months so have been using Huggies. She's been to hospital and getting better now so I should go back to my cloth.

I have just sold my stash of nappies DS is now potty trained (except at night but used disposables then anyway) and I just have so much washing now with DS & DD that I don't have enough time in the day for nappy washing too so I gave up and using Pampers

Kudos to you for doing cloth for so long there is no shame in it

Thanks. I think if we had a diaper service it would be better, it's not the using cloth that stresses me it's the washing. I have so much laundry with 4 people in the house, sometimes 5 as my sister has been staying with us. Plus we are working on the house and packing up to move.

And I read somewhere cloth is somewhere around 21 to 22 cents per use, with the water usage and stuff factored in, which makes 'sposies not that much more. I have yet to see the reflection in my water bill though. We take more showers in the summer or something!

I do still want to do cloth, maybe go back when it's potty training time, DS potty trained so well (and they say boys are harder) I don't want to end up doing diapers for much longer with her, that will make it more expensive for sure! *Sigh*

I gave myself "breaks" from cloth every so often when my daughter was still in diapers. For one, it was a lot of work, especially as a single mom (although I did have my mom and friends helping.) And two, I have a really bad gag reflex.. just the sight of poop makes me almost vomit, so having more connection with the poop through cloth wasn't easy for me, and I only did it because I believe so strongly in reducing carbon footprint, environmental protection, etc.

My LO was potty trained at 2.5, so diapers all and all didn't last very long, looking back. If I were to have a second child, I'd do the same - cloth for the most part, but do disposables if I need a break from the workload and ick factor.
