I have 4 kids, and two of them are in diapers right now. I haven't tried cloth diapers yet, but I'm expecting some to arrive in the mail soon and we're going to try them for the first time. The major thing that's stopped me from trying them before is the idea of the clean-up and washing. I've always used disposables because they are so easy and relatively mess-free. The reason I'm trying cloth now is because I can't afford to keep buying disposables. The cost is insane, and I'm ready to try something else. I admit I'm not looking forward to the extra laundry, at all. It's nice to be able to just roll the diaper up and throw it away, and it could be a big adjustment for us. Any suggestions on handling the mess?
