When I cloth diapered my babies I was on the answering side of a lot of questions. Of course, people had heard the horror stories from their grandmothers, or possibly their mothers, about cloth diapers. They always want to know WHY I would chose cloth diapers when the alternative, disposable diapers, were readily available.
That question was a simple one to answer. It was answered with a question of my own. "Would YOU like to wear paper or plastic underwear?"
