As a quick recap (full story here), I only started using cloth last June. D was 2.5yrs old, and I expected him to potty train any day (HA!), but I'd finally managed to convince Zach to give cloth a chance, and being newly pregnant I wanted to figure things out and find a rhythm before our lives got all turned upside-down by a new baby in the house. We were already using gDiapers with the compostable inserts, so we switched to cloth inserts-- first gCloth, and when they proved to not be quite absorbent enough, decided to go for g-flappers (I still use my gCloth stash, but doubled up or with a half-insert added).

Interestingly, though, this didn't really simplify my life that much. Q was going through a ridiculous number of diapers (a 40-diaper pack lasted, um, 3 days?), but was also growing so fast that I didn't want to buy them in bulk and end up with lots of outgrown extras. So I felt a constant stress at trying to remember how many diapers we had left, what size they were, and when we needed to buy/order more. And then there was the trash. OH DEAR LORD. The ridiculously large amount of dirty diapers that filled our trash cans was, frankly, a bit disgusting.
