cloth diapers
I'm 31 weeks with twins & I'm considering cloth diapers for the first 4-6 months. I only want to use them in the house, outside I'll use regular diapers. All of my friends are telling me not to do it because its a lot of work, but I still want to try them out. Does anyone have experience with cloth diapers?

When I worked for the YMCA Childcare we had moms that would use them and that's what got me into them. They are actually a lot easier to me. If they poo you just drop the poo in the toilet and wash and pray they aren't sick lol. I wouldn't suggest using them if they have an upset tummy. But other than that I loved changing the child with the cloth diapers cuz it was so much easier and it helps reduce diaper rashes.

Its your choice, it's less common now but with twins its very cost efficient. You should try & see as you will be just using them inside. I agree with achewitt not recommended if have diahorrea & be careful with the pins! Lol.
I know in the past people would wash by hand in a bucket but I guess the machine will come in handy too :-)
Good luck!

Thanx. Yea I think I'll test them out for a few weeks to see how it goes. But I definitely won't use the ones with pins, I'll use the ones with the little snaps. I think they're called cloth diaper covers. I need to do more research lol
