To Cloth Diaper or not to Cloth Diaper?

Okay, after being back at work today I feel more energized. Probably because I was getting off 45 minutes early. LOL But anyhoo..I have been toying around with the idea of using cloth diapers because of my brother-in-law and his wife. It had nothing to do with the landfill. Glad to be helping out, but that won't it. These two...bless their hearts...have 5 children and one on the way. The have 1 that is still in diapers, one that is training and another that was just trained last year. (They are 8,5,4,3,2, and1) they just seem so fertile...~ahem~ But whenever they come to visit and they are sitting around having a good time one of the little ones will ~do they bizness~ and need to be changed. The two dummies, I mean in-laws will start with the..."Where are the pampers?" " I thought you had em'." I have decided that I don't want to be like them. I mentioned it to my Phat man and he seems okay with them. My Phat mom went on and on about when she used cloth diapers and how she had to dunk them in the toilet. Ewww is right...but they have come a long way. Let me know what you think.

They even have flushable liners so there will be NO MORE DUNKING...! Ha @ Phat mom.
They are cute though... I like this one:

Awww, the lil duckie-wuckies...LOL.

They are really cute...I really didn't know much about cloth diapers when my son was a baby (he's 5 now), I just thought they'd be so much more of a hassle than disposables. Honey, I didn't give one iota about the landfill - I'm a girl of convenience. LOL I like the fact that you can use liners with the cloth diapers (didn't know about that) - how much do they cost? Is the cost worth it versus disposables? Even if I knew anything about cloth diapers when my son was a baby, I'm pretty sure I still wouldn't have used them. Those little prints are adorable though.

Wow, about your fertile relatives. I'm really surprised people still have that many kids in this day (with the high price of everything). More power to them though, certainly not for me.

I can't wait for your baby to get here. :)
