My first daughter was just born 4 weeks ago and we used cloth in the hospital. It was not in our birth plan, but since my husband and doula knew we were using cloth and the nurses knew that the baby was to come to me immediately, delay the birth procedures(eye ointment, etc) and never to be removed without a parent present, it was no big deal. They immediately put her on my chest and after a few minutes someone asked about putting a diaper on her. I said we brought our own, my husband grabbed one and we stuck it under her while she laid on me. We brought a wet/dry bag and just collected the dirty ones in there for the 2 days we stayed at the hospital. The nurses didn't have any reaction one way or another.
