    Erin (the one in Canada lol), glad you posted! Why doesn't your DH like using cloth?

    Becky, I figured you'd check in. Do you have any diapers other than bitti tutto so far?

    Amy, that is a REALLY cute woolie!

    Just the couple of Bitti Tuttos so far. I've been waiting until after tomorrow's anatomy scan because I know if its a girl I'll end up buy girly covers no matter how much I tell myself I'm going to stick with gender neutral. lol

    Name: Amber
    LO(s)/ages: Ava, almost 3 and Andrew, 19 months
    Why do you (or want to) use cloth diapers?: I use them to be more gentle to my kiddos bottoms and the enviroment- plus they're WAY cuter than disposibles. And I credit CD's to helping Ava potty train shortly after she turned 2.
    Most used diaper: I favor my BG 3.0's
    Diaper you want to try (if money was not a factor lol): I want some fun patterns. All our CD's are soild. I'm a fairly boring CDer.
    Any frustrations with cloth right now?: Nope
    Got a recent fluff picture to share?: Swimming in a BG without inserts.

    Thanks for making me feel welcome! As for DH, I didn't know how to control the urine smell when we were CD. I have since done some more research and did a really good strip on the diapers so we will give it another go. I hated hearing him call our DD stinky. Babies do not stink I also think it was a convience thing for him (even though I washed and we used pockets - which were prestuffed). Men

    I can't wait to find out what you're having!!! Besides, who says boys can't wear pink?! Aiden has two of the Kawaii red peach diapers that look pink. And someone told me that the Blueberry minky that I bought that's chocolate with blue dots is girly.

    I hope you don't have the smell this next time, so he can't use that excuse. If you do end up having any problems, let us know. This board has a very useful ladies that will hopefully be able to help you troubleshoot any issues.
    I had a smell issue with my fitteds. They just don't like to rinse as well as my other diapers! The detergent build up causes the problems.

    I've just started lurking agian after a couple of years away. We're having another baby in December, and this time it's a girl, so I'm back to shopping and researching and all the fun that goes with it.

    Name: Sabra
    LO(s)/ages: DS 8, DS 5, DS 3 and edd 12/17/11
    Why do you (or want to) use cloth diapers?: Started because they're cute, stayed with it because I think they are awesome
    Most used diaper: Nothing right now, since all outside the womb are out of diapers. With my last it was my own-made fitteds and wool. With my first two, I loved pockets, especially the original Wonderoos
    Diaper you want to try (if money was not a factor lol): I'm interested in the GoVias, but still on the fence on whether or not to purchase.
    Any frustrations with cloth right now?: That I have a ridiculous amount of boy CD and wool to sell and have no desire to do all the work to do it
    Got a recent fluff picture to share?: No one's been in fluff for more than six months around here, so nothing too recent. But this is one of my favorites from last fall when my youngest was still in diapers

    Name: Amber
    LO(s)/ages: Mason/2 & Isaac/almost 1
    Why do you (or want to) use cloth diapers?: DS1 was/isn't in cloth (except at night) we switched because a) Isaac has eczema and b) saving money.
    Most used diaper: We use Fuzzibunz and Sunbabys equally the most
    Diaper you want to try (if money was not a factor lol): I do wish we had more Rumparooz. I'd like to try Blueberrys (and their trainers), Charlie Bananas, and I wish I could afford to have some TotsBots in my stash. ETA I'd also really like to try GoGreen's Champ diaper.
    Any frustrations with cloth right now?: Not really
    Got a recent fluff picture to share?: Not ATM
