I'm working on packing my hospital bag - haven't done this before - and I've been debating on whether I should take cloth diapers or wait until I get home to start using the cloth. I would prefer to use cloth from the beginning, but at the same time, it seems like an enormous hassle - at a time when there's going to be enough to deal with - to bring a bunch of diapers and covers, rinse them out in the hospital, pack used ones in a wet bag, and manage to not lose any at any point. I intend on the hospital stay being as short as it possible can, but I want to prepare for eventualities, too. So I'm kicking around the idea of picking up a pack of seventh generation or similar diapers to just use while in the hospital.
What was your experience with this? Did you choose to take cloth to the hospital? Was it a pain or no big deal? How many did you take and how long did you stay?
