    This is an old thread, but I just wanted to put in a word in case anyone else is looking.

    There's plenty of discussion about this online, so I won't go into detail.

    Our experience has been great with Charlie Bananas after 6 months and G-diapers from 2-6 months.

    Pros:
    Saves money - potentially loads.
    Reusables can last for use with multiple children.
    They look nice on the baby
    Gentler on baby's skin
    More environmental - this reason comes first for many.

    Cons:
    Requires a load of wash every day or every other day
    Not always easy to find the parts abroad - easiest and cheapest to buy in places like the US

    I would recommend a combined solution. For instance, we use disposables at night and on trips but stick to reusables for the rest of the time.
