Let me start of by saying, I feel like a total hypocrite as I write this....................
Your baby will need approx. 6,000 disposable diapers in his/her 2 1/2 year "Diaper Period".
I've never heard any horror stories about cloth diapers, I just don't know anyone who uses them!
Ask yourself, do you know any cloth diapered babies, under the age of 20????
