Question of the Week: Why do you use disposable or washable baby diapers?

2009 March 9

Each week we ask a question related to the environment. Please let us know your thoughts as comments. Feel free to respond to earlier comments or post new ideas. Previous questions.

    I have two girls ages 16 and 14 and they are both bedwetters.I use regular flat cloth diapers on them with adult size,infant style rubber pants over the diapers.they dont mind the diapers and rubberpants and have told me a couple times they like the feeling of being like babies at bedtime.they have rubberpants in both pastels and babyprints and dont mind them at oldest girl was confirmed last fall[catholic] and had to wear a white dress and veil with tights and mary janes.Me and her sister put cloth diapers and rubberpants on her when we dressed her and she wore them under her tights for the day.the youngest also wore her diapers and rubber pants also since her sister was wearing them.
