    Yep, I can't believe it either! People are paying $5.50 to $32.00 per diaper, that's insane! My daughter is trying to talk me into making some to sale on Ebay. That look very easy and simple to make and yes, they are very, very cute, what do you all think about this new diaper craze?

    My daughter just bought some--they were $15 apiece. They are so soft and absorbent and wonderful and require no "rubber pants" over them. I thought she was insane, but she is really using them and will eventually save money and not fill a landfill with Pampers. They are definitely not the cloth diapers of our day.

    My DD used them when DGD was a baby. I thought she was silly at first til I saw how well they worked. And she sold them on E bay what DGD outgrew them. Worked great.

    They will have to be laundered using special detergents, extra rinses to remove all the detergent and bleach just like regular cloth diapers. DH figured it all out with our two kids. It was much cheaper to buy disposable diapers. I'm not that eco minded for saving the landfills from diapers.

    Nope - just laundered as usual. My children are older now, but many of the young moms I know are using them. The prices are a bargain when you check out what disposable diapers cost.

    When I had children, the cloth diapers were just big squares of flannel and we used those icky rubber/plastic pants. ewwwww.... But I think paper diapers are worse.

    When my kids were little, I washed them in Tide (Dreft the first month or so) and rinsed them twice. HARDLY EVER used bleach. Hung them outside in the summer and on a drying rack in the winter.

    Babies only had sore bottoms when they got diarrhea when they were teething.

    I LOVE the "new" cloth diapers. It fed my fabric addiction for the past 7 or so years, during which time, I didn't quilt. I was content with buying beautiful printed cloth diapers. I could look at like this, pay $15-$20 for a diaper or a couple of yards of fabric. At least with the diaper, they would be used (and re-used) and I could also re-sell them when done or if I no longer wanted them. Yes, there is a HUGE market for used cloth diapers. Now, that I'm not using them, for the time being, I'm back to buying fabric for my quilt stash. I found Dawn dishwashing liquid to be the best for laundering them and no bad side effects.

    I've sewn over a hundred cloth diapers over the past 6 years or so for my kids and friend's kids. I made pocket diapers that have a waterproof outer, a stay dry feeling inner and an insert made from absorbant fabric. I never had to wash multiple times and I only bleached diapers twice in all of those years. They are so much softer than disposables and don't have all of those chemicals next to the baby's skin. It takes dedication to use them since they are more work than disposables. I've used both and they both have their own pros & cons.
