My sister’s first child had cloth diapers. A diaper service made regular pickups. And It Was Good.

Well, unless travel was involved. Traveling with an increasingly heavy (and stinky) used-diaper bag turned out to be *really* inconvenient. So… disposables for travel.

And busy weeks. It was just faster.

Holy crap, did you SEE the bill from the stupid diaper service?

And so my nephew, born two years after his sister, so far as I knew never experienced a cloth diaper.
