    cloth nappy is always better than diapers. not just economically but prevents diaper rash in babies.. also. allow the skin to 'breathe'. i used cloth diapers in the beginning for my baby, but during winter, i used diaper, because it was too cold . these days, still using diapers, because my mil babysits her during the day,, and let her use that.. as during the weekend, i will use cloth diaper, helps to potty train her..

    chelle,
    You can find cloth diapers locally in Citysuper Times Square, both AIO and nappy & cover separately are available.

    We use the cloth nappies (Bum Genius) for day time and a disposable at night as we have also had leaks at night even with the additional hemp liner. Loving them and nice to know that I am doing my (little) bit for the environment. Took me about a month of using 10 disposables a day on my newborn to realise how much space they take up in the landfill.

    Definately worth trying even if you use them in conjuntion with disposables.

    just curious to all the mommies who use the "all in ones/ or pocket diapers" i.e. bumgenius/fuzzibunz... if you find they're bulky at all, since i've heard this was a drawback... thanks!

    They are a bit bulky, particularly for a newborn. The bulkiness is "less" when the baby is bigger. I use bum genius and I love how it's "one size fits all" - but that kind of adds to the bulkiness for the newborn. I think they're worth a try, but I wouldn't get more than 12 unless you want to 100% use cloth diapers, even when you're out. They're expensive too, which to me is the main drawback...

    I've used Fuzzibunz from 3 mths to potty training and don't find them bulky at all.
    Clothes go over the top the same as a disposable.

    Agree with Nicolejoy. Think we bought 14 Bumgenius ones and could have done with 12 as we only started on reuseable ones after about 10 weeks. The reason we chose these ones was the same - one size fits all - don't need to buy two sets of sizes. Make sure you get some white ones as, in addition to some bulkiness, the coloured ones also show through lighter coloured clothes.
