That said, I have used disposable pads in the past (like Always brand, for example) and the plastic really is yucky. But they're cheap compared to mama cloth, and they stick in place. I've gotten a recommendation to just use an infant prefold, but honestly, that doesn't sound very good, either. It seems like that would feel just plain huge and awkward. Who can keep up with a toddler and keep a prefold between their legs?
I'm green and crunchy in many ways, but I've spent a lot on better, greener things in the past. I'm just wondering if I shouldn't suck it up and deal with the plasticky yuck feeling to save money and also to get a pad that stays put. The *idea* of cloth pads that are a normal size sounds great, if only they'd stay put, and be comfy.
