If you like crunchy diapers, why not use cloth?

I am too cheap even for woot. I used old fashioned flatfolds & rubber pants. They are $10 for a dozen on dipes a couple bucks for a pair of rubber pants & then I never have to buy them again. The only time I use sposies is when I have to - which with child #2 was ONLY in the hospital for a day after birth and then when we all had a stomach bug that hung in there & I just already had my plate so full I would have stood him in the trash can bare butt if I thought it was safe....in fact I probably would have joined him. lol Those were a few dark days around here. But otherwise I find cloth is actually pretty simple - the only other investment for me has been a fantastic toilet sprayer that we use a ton for other things as well - such as a HANDY post partum gadget for soothing sore bits...and cleaning dog pooh off a shoe AND a couple of wet bags. That is it.
I think I maybe spent $150 on dipes & pants total & wet bags. The sprayer was the best $50 I ever spent & will likely never be removed from the toilet long after diapers are a fond memory. If you have never tried cloth, it is literally NEVER too late. I didn't start with my 1st until he as about 18 months old & it was STILL worth it even then.
