We REALLY want to cloth diaper. Really, really. And I've researched quite a bit, and thanks to other friends/relatives who have taken that plunge, I've acquired a ton of information.
But do you know what ALL of these people have that we do not? A washer and dryer. We use the laundromat. Which means doing laundry on a daily basis simply is NOT going to happen. It happens about once a week, at best. We would need at least a week and a half of supplies available to successfully do this. That's A LOT.
If we do prefolds, that's a new size every once in a while, too, and another large outpouring of money. I know it pays for itself, but the question is, for someone like me, does it REALLY make sense?
What do you cloth diapering geniuses suggest? We are now thinking a hybrid plan, using what we can for cloth, and mixing with environmentally disposables like this: Seventh Generation Diapers. Is it maybe worth it, though, to bust out the money for the cloth? Perhaps wait until Cricket is out of the actual baby stage (20 lbs) and switch to cloth at that point, when fewer will be needed, and there won't be size changes every couple of months?
I really need input. I don't know what to do :(
