I just read some encouraging, but not surprising, results to a poll over at Breastfeeding 1-2-3 regarding Cloth -v- Disposable diaper usage among breastfeeding mothers. The respondents to their poll chose cloth diapers over disposable diapers 2 to 1.
"I was curious to see whether a majority of breastfeeding mothers prefer cloth diapers to disposables for their babies and the answer is a resounding yes!"
The reason I do not find the results of this poll surprising is because cloth diapering is more prevalent across the natural parenting community. These parents strive toward more "natural" parenting methods, for example, choosing the breast over the bottle and cloth over disposables.
An increasingly popular mode of parenting called Attachment Parenting promotes these parenting choices as one more way to be sensitive to the needs of your child, thereby becoming more "attached". But whether or not attachment is the goal, it seems clear (by this poll at least) that there is a strong correlation between breastfeeding moms and cloth diaper usage.

I think you are so right I'm eight months pregnant & I still breast feed my one year old & I prefer cloth diapers I love them I read everything about attachment parenting & loved the review its better to attend to your child's needs and create that bond with them I feel cloth diapers is the best & feels better than any other diaper

Agree but one of my reasons is cloth diapers contain the BF poop better.

I prefer cloth diapers but I don't breast feed. I wanted to breastfeed though... I just couldn't.

We breastfeed and we cloth diaper.
And we co sleep and we baby wear and we blw.
I think it's just something that comes with the natural parenting style.
