    I think this is great, and partially also due to the call to go green, as disposable diapers are wasting away in landfills for 500 years.

    Cloth diapers are way to go! Less waste on our landfills and healthier for the baby :)
    Thanks for the info!

    When I was pregnant with my daughter (she’s almost three now) I didn’t even consider using cloth diapers because I thought they would be too messy and difficult to use. Since then I have heard so many positive things about cloth diapers–good for baby, good for environment, easier to use than ever before, etc.–that I am going to give them a try when I have a second baby. Thanks for all the good info and I’ll keep this brand in mind!

    I agree that cloth is not only beneficial to the environment, but I haven’t had any problems with diaper rash. I’m a new Mom and I was worried about that. But the cloth diapers are easy to use and keep my son dry.

    I haven’t tried Bumpkins yet, but I will soon.

    Yes, me too I’m glad, but why everybody who simply don’t like the idea keep talking about water?!?

    Yes it takes water to wash diaper, I agree! But do they have an idea how much water it requires to make one disposable diaper?? And I don’t talk about the waste…

    I’m glad to see cloth getting some press! About 6 years ago when I was cloth diapering my two, I got lots of funny looks in this small Southern town when I told people we were doing cloth instead of disposable!
