disposables aren't necessary for night time or for going out. i always used cloth at those times. we did, however, use disposables when traveling, mostly because we just didn't know where to store them (and i always felt bad having soiled diapers laying around someone else's house.
My DD got rash easily, that's why I had to use sposies while out--if I couldn't change her soon enough she would get a major rash. She was a frequent pooper and pooping into a wet diaper then not changing quickly enough would do it every time.
I also switched to sposies at night at 6 months because she would scream her head off if I tried to change her at night and I don't think the neighbours (or DH) appreciated that! A sposie would last all night. My daytime system couldn't be boosted enough to last thru the night and I didn't want to pay for a separate night time system.
I think it makes sense not to invest a lot in a CD system till you give it a try and know that you like it and it's working for you. All kids are different (in terms of what will give them rash, how a certain diaper or cover fits them, and how much they pee)
Oh, do I agree with this. DS has completely different needs than DD. She needed a stay-dry system or she'd get rashy. DS is sensitive to polyester, and breaks out if he's in PUL for too long, so we generally use prefolds and wool. I'm selling off all DD's diapers now, which I thought would work for DS. Lucky for me, his system is far cheaper!
